family picture day.










These are the family photos I meant to share weeks ago from when I was in Ohio for my dad's surprise birthday weekend. I've been running around the past couple weeks running errand after errand, in an attempt to get ready for this tiny human being that will be born soon (in/around 3.5 weeks!). I used to think pregnancy would be the worst, having to wait so long for the baby to get here, but to be honest I find myself wanting to slow time down so that I can properly prepare, mentally & emotionally & also maybe because we still don't have a stroller or carseat?? Yikes.

Anyways, these photos are so fun to look back on again. They were taken right after church on that Sunday before everyone started heading out back to their homes. 6 out of 8 of us kids were able to be there—an older brother was absent because his wife had just had a baby, and my younger brother is currently serving an LDS mission and also was not able to come. 

**The photos of my dad with his buffalo head are my favorite. He grew up in northern Wyoming, which is where the buffalo head is from, and one of these days I just might sneak that thing in my suitcase and bring it home with me. I think it's pretty awesome.
