It’s hard to believe that this little guy used to be this little baby! He’s growing up fast and he’s on the move. I was so excited to go to my hometown for the weekend to photograph and hang out with Mr. and Mrs. Hokie (and baby Hokie).
Silas had a big day of egg hunts (complete with mini cookies) with both sets of Grandparents, playing with sticks, running around, and even getting to go up in a big boy tractor. I love spending a day with families in this way because its like getting to open up a door to their house while everyone is sitting down for dinner and they don’t know you’re there. Everyone’s personalities and love just over-pours and I just drink it up.
We started with Mrs. Hokie’s parents. We had a lot of fun playing around in the back yard with Silas and experience the beginnings of spring.
I love watching Grandparents just come alive around grandkids. There’s something special about that bond.
Although this day was mainly about Grandparents (and Great Grandparents) we managed to get a couple photos of Silas with his own awesome parents. Being kissed by Mom and getting to be a man with Dad equals a pretty swell day.
Next it was over to Mr. Hokie’s parents for another easter egg hunt and a chance to romp around in the great outdoors. Grandma’s do know the best tickle spots.
And of course, the day wouldn’t be complete without getting a chance to sit up on the big tractor with Granddad. All in all I think you can safely say that Silas is a hit with his grandparents. His parents think he’s alright too. I hope that these photos helped capture this growing boy at such a fun stage. Thanks to all the Grandparents and parents for taking me into your home. I had a blast!
