Steppin' out to my nieces birthday!

{please ignore the ghetto background, we were in the garage! ha ha}

This weekend, my niece turned 4 y/o!! The thing I love about my in-law's is that they keep things small and intimate. Birthday's are always just family and close friends. It's perfect.

There was cake eating, present opening, bubble blowing, water gun fighting, sliding, trampoline jumping, mega block tower building. Pretty much all the things kids love to do.

There are 16 grandkids on my husbands side and only 3 of them live in WA (including Bennett!!) ...so I love it when him and his two cousins get together, they play really well together!

happy fourth bd to your niece! ISn't it just crazy how fast our kids grow up. She is a cutie pie too!! B looks like he had a great time and of course you both look top notch as always!! Love skinny jeans with a cute top. My fave! THough since having my daughter not a single pair of pants that I own fits my body right....sadness. lol

So fun! Happy Birthday to your niece! Four is a big year, it's the step (IMO anyway) from being a toddler to a little kid! Very bittersweet. Love all the bubble photos, btw. :)

Your photos are fantastic from one photographer to another. Just found your site and I think it's great. After a 6yr break from my photography due to my disability I'm once again finding new inspiration with my new camera. Sites like yours really inspire me! Thanks!
