Searching for Normalcy

"And finally, above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art…" – Felix Gonzalez-Torres

Father’s Day and some scrappiness June 24, 2010

Filed under: Life,Personal,Photography,Scrapbooking — Lulu @ 11:46 pm

Fanless and I celebrated Father’s Day with our friends, Kim and Brandon, and their two girls. We enjoyed a great lunch at Joe’s Crab Shack, followed by a trip to Bass Pro Shops/Outdoor World, where we were joined by Kim’s parents and her brother, Chad.


They’ll be moving to Washington at the end of July. I, for one, am bummed.


I can’t believe this little one will a year old in just three months. It seems like she was just born yesterday. (Seriously, SO yummy!)


Here Mia is modeling her “super fast shoes that let me jump high-high-high-HIGH!”


This was a semi-photobomb. I leaned over and smiled and then Kim yelled “Christian!” and snapped the picture when he looked up.


Her first french fry! (Which was promptly followed by a second french fry, some vomit and a wardrobe change.)


Right before taking this she said “Aunt Lulu, I want to be serious in this picture.” She is such a trip.


And this is what happens when Grandpa buys you a blue ring pop at Outdoor World.



And a couple of scraps…


The pic is of my niece at her bridal shower (I’m finally scrapping these. Never mind that she just celebrated her second wedding anniversary) and I used DCWV papers that matched the color and design on her dress. I kept the page fairly simple so the focus would be on the photo.

For this one I used papers and embellies from the Noel Mignon “Lemonade Stand” kit. The blue buttons and alphas were from my stash.


That’s all I’ve got for now. Peace out, yo!
