Meeting the Baby

I had the opportunity to drive down to Oklahoma and meet my new niece!  My dad and I drove down to my sister's, my mom was already there.  We spent the night, and then the three of us left Wednesday to drive home.  It was a very short trip and I wish I could have had plenty of time to do a couple different photo shoots, but I had three little boys waiting for me back home.  I was very happy to have this little window of time to meet my niece while she's still brand new.  Considering I was there less than 24 hours, I did get to hold her a lot, and I got some great pictures, like this one of her holding my mom's finger.  

I knitted a fun little photo prop thing that I had seen in some cute pictures, but unfortunately that project did not result in good pictures.  I think that there was a lot of variables that I just did not have time to fix. 

My dad and I had a lot of fun on the trip south, looking for items on the Photo Scavenger Hunt list.  I got out at a rest stop to get a picture of "fields" and almost stepped on a bullsnake - aghh!  With about 24 hours in the car, I got a lot of knitting done!  We passed this wind farm in Kansas.  It's hard to tell how gigantic these big windmills are, then you see the tiny cows!

Is that the big wind farm just north of Lawton? Aren't they just amazing in their enormity?

Your baby photo is beautiful. I'll bet you had a good trip!
