Last Tuesday before I got the Plague, I was invited to take pictures of my Aunt and Uncle’s Anniversary Party. It was a great time and we had several opportunities to take some much needed family pictures.
It was one of those classic summer parties, there was seafood, laughter, kids, kisses, hugs, big kids eating baby food (do not try that at home), lightening bugs, prayers, Eskimo kisses, and lots of Red Light Green Light. But most importantly we were able to celebrate what a wonderful couple my Aunt and Uncle are, and the great example they have set for all of us.
Thank you both for letting me take photos of you (thanks to your sneaky daughter) and more importantly thank you for being a wonderful Aunt and Uncle to me. Aunt Carol thank you for encouraging my love of art and photography, for being willing to make mud pies with me at the cabin, for nursing me when I inevitably would fall down your basement stairs, and for being my name’s sake. Uncle Walt, thank you for teaching me how to fish and your patience when I caught fish and you didn’t, thank you for teaching me your love of nature and letting me quietly enjoy it with you, and thank you for always sharing your stories with me and being willing to listen to mine in return. I love you both and I hope you enjoy the photos!
