Friday in Vegas - Part Two

After the day was over, Brett and I took Loralyn out to the backyard at the Bollman's house to play a bit. Well, Loralyn was playing, we were playing with Loralyn, and we were playing with the camera. She's just too much fun....and this was definitely a "chase me" afternoon.

We chased her, picked her up, spun her around, threw her....we did pretty much anything that we could with her...and she was laughing and smiling the whole time.

At one point, Brett was spinning Loralyn....and it reminded me of a post that I'd seen over a year ago on Photojojo. I just re-read it, and we nailed these shots with a slightly different technique (if only someone had thought to take a picture of us taking these that would be a funny picture!), but the results were awesome. I think that these are my favorites!! :)

Back to some more goofing around. :)

And then.......Brett's Dad remembered a little something special that was in the shed - his scooter. He brought it out, dusted it off, filled up the gas tank, and more great photo opps ensued!! (P.S. The Bollmans are adding onto their that is why it looks like we are in a construction zone.)

Autumn wasn't around when we were doing this....not sure she would have approved! But look at how much fun Loralyn is having?!?! I promise Bruce wasn't going that fast!

Loralyn with two of her biggest fans!

So, remember how I told you that Brett has a personalized license plate? runs in the family. Check this out.

BAMRCL is my favorite. It's Brittany' has two meanings. First is "Be a Miracle"....and the second is all of the initials in her family...Brittany, Autumn, Morgan, Rob, Chelsea, Logan/Loralyn. Isn't that SO cool? (Or am I just a big dork and I'm alone in loving this!). There is even one more that isn't pictured....ROBSGRL. :) If I had to get myself one, I'm not sure what I'd get. Any suggestions?

One last image. Autumn said that she has a similar picture from when she was little with her Uncle Brad. Too cute. Seriously, Brett loves this little girl like no other.

We wrapped up the day with a night of yummy spaghetti dinner and just hanging out, relaxing and a bit of TV. We all had a few laughs at Jeff Dunham's expense, and then both Brett and I did a little late night work while enjoying The Eagles concert on DVD with Bruce.
