The Good, the Bad, and the ADORABLE

My family came home early. Got home on Friday. Brett and Heather are severely sunburned. They are in a lot of pain and having a tough go of it. Brett is hardly able to walk as it is somehow affecting his muscles in his legs. And Heather is covered in blisters, her nose and lips are swollen, and she can't lift her arms very high at all. I guess the day that they got soooo sunburned it was DARK outside from stormy weather and they just didn't think about sunblock! The tent was also leaking pretty badly and they were experiencing pretty nasty weather there. Heather even saw a funnel cloud! Anywayz... They said that they did enjoy a few of the shows they were able to go to.... But all in all it wasn't a good time. :( Except for Brian... he was pretty bummed that they had to come home early. He missed seeing his favorite band.

I picked up my new camera on Friday. YAY!!!! Unfortunately, I really haven't had much time to play with it. Too busy finishing up senior pictures - finished yesterday morning! And clearing up hard drive space so I will have room to store wedding pictures. That is a s-l-o-w process.

This week's plans are to get those engagement pix done, clear up more space on the computer, and LEARN MY CAMERA! And of course, pray, pray, pray that I do a good job for this lovely couple. I always pray that I will BLESS the people I'm photographing with their pictures.

I'll leave with a little collage I made for my business parter of her ADORABLE little Bear....

I'm so sorry for Bret and Heather. Sunburns can be so painfull and dangerous to. Keep them hydrated. I am excited for you and you new CAMERA. You and yours are in my prayers.

Too bad they didn't have much fun... Will they still want to go next year?

Thanks GMJ.

I dunno Bethany! We'll see. Heather's not much for camping and this just made things worse. But she did enjoy seeing the bands. Jessi would really like to go sometime though. So maybe she and Brett would go. We'll see! They certainly aren't talking about it yet!!
