We traveled for the holiday and endured what I'm sure everyone else did who ventured out - traffic, long lines and family drama. At least gas is cheaper, and we got to visit sunny Florida for the effort. We even managed to stop at the only Burger King whose Playland was closed along I-75. Jack wasn't impressed.
What can I say? A lot of wrapping for 8 1/2 minutes of fury. Maybe Sam and Jack will slow down next year. Beautiful Finnegan - Dad's sweet but crazy Wheaton Terrier

We were done in a flash and were able to get a few shots in between Nilla Wafers. I'm including a few outtakes along with my faves, because even crying, Miss SJ was precious.

Below are some of my favorites, including one of Sam trying to escape from the house when we were done.
Yes, I know it's just hands, but there was something special about how they were all connected.

The museum has some really cool trains - old Amtrak sleeper cars, MARTA cars and several working trains that will take the little ones back and forth for a short ride. It's also super cheap to get in - 8$ for adults/4$ for kids under 12. It's worth the visit. Today they even had Santa - on a train. Anyway, below are a few shots from the day. Choo choo!

"We have friends in GA," Bill and I often say to each other because of folks like the Wearnes. Don't get me wrong, I can never replace my PA friends, but this is the suburban soccer mom/dad lifestyle - as cliche as it might sound - we had hoped to luck into when we moved to Suwanee. And, thankfully we got exactly what we wanted - in spades.
The boys and I had a great day visiting with the cousins and meeting new friends like Sioux and Switch - two gorgeous and gentle horses available for 2-hr rides through the woods. Sam had a great time brushing Switch's belly, and Jack insists Uncle Jay's horse was named Soup. Who cares, he says it so cute - Soup it is!
And, to top it off, it was a perfect Fall Georgia afternoon. We didn't get to ride unfortunately, but we'll DEFINITELY be back. Thanks for the invite Jay and Carrie. Great seeing y'all. Beautiful Switch

Quick break from my photo posts for this breaking news update: Sam is now a jr. orange belt! Here's a quick clip, albeit grainy, of my Sam breaking a board for his jr. orange belt test. Next time I'll bring my real camera to his test. Watch for the after-excitement. He's the one closest to the camera. Go Sam!

For this shoot I suggested my new favorite park in Suwanee, and luckily today was one of those perfect Georgia October days - a great day to shoot. After taking some time to convince the youngest, Luke (12), that it was okay to sit close to his sisters, I managed to get a few keepers for the holidays and just for fun. Happy Fall!
Anyhoo, below are a few faves from the weekend and school parade.

Anyway, Sam and Co. golfed (sort of), ate cake and opened presents with the wonderful vim and vigor that 5-year-olds have. He even took home an eye patch and treasure chest for his little brother. I posted a few of my favorites below. Happy Birthday Ashton!
