A spare few

15 Sep

So, after one day with the Millers and the Fontenots and all of those other random families, we came back home with a little over 500 pictures. . . that being said, here is a random (and small in comparison) selection. They are in absolutely NO particular order, and I’m not even apologizing for it.  Half of these haven’t been edited, and I’m not apologizing for that either.  🙂

Also sexy?  This groovy picture that came with the apron supplies. . . I guess it’s so you know how to pose once you’ve finished your apron?
