Dad's Birthday Get-Together

We went to Atlanta Saturday to spend time with my dad and family for his birthday.  It was SO great seeing everyone!  My stepmom and her family cooked a whole lot of REAL food.  Morgan loved the dressing.  She even ditched her usual favorites - green beans and mac n' cheese - for my stepmom's dressing.  I may have to ask her for the recipe (disaster waiting to happen, for sure).

I took lots of pictures!  And usually when there's a lot of family around and/or people I haven't seen in a while, I tend to talk more and snap less.  So I was glad my dad who was around to say, "Hey, get a picture of that..."  Lots of memories captured on his special day.

Happy Birthday, Big Daddy Laurence!

A few of the fellas.

Trying to get Aunt Linda before she gets me.

Aunt Linda with her son, Xavolon.

Guess who came by?

My amazing friend, Tia!

With my fabulous Aunts Linda and Teresa!

And my beautiful cousin, Danielle.  Sweetest girl ever.

Okay, so my dad's yard has hills/inclines everywhere.    
So you can guess who had a GREAT time! Yep, the kid who's OBSESSED with hills!

My dad getting his shift in.  Haha!  Not long after this pic was taken, he said, "I'm tired! I need to tag out with somebody!" LOL!

My stepmom Antritia handling the grill!

Baby Sister Lauren, and her boyfriend.  Isn't this pic adorable?

So, yeah, you can guess what's going on here.  LOL!  Poor boyfriend!

Dad was making it clear that this was HIS girl!

Dad with his girls (with the little one fighting to get down to play). 
My sister, Rika, on the far left, is also one of the sweetest people I know!

The Fam. :)
Thanks to the steep driveway, I look taller than everyone...when in reality, I'm shorter than them ALL. 

The neighbors had a swing.

And Morgan liked it for like TWO minutes. LOL.  She wanted to get down and run around!

With my big cuzzo, Xavolon.

He wanted a picture with this kid, but she was only interested in playing.

Mo with Tia.  Once again, wanting to get down and play.

Got several shots of these two kids.  Ahh, young love!

Tia with her beautiful kids...

...who are SO funny...

...and so cute.

My dad's neighbors' little one, Priscilla.  She gave Morgan some purple flowers. How sweet is that?

And then my cousin, Neal, and his little one, JB (my first time meeting little JB)!

We had a great time!  Morgan was exhausted and was asleep by the time we were out of the area good.

Hope everyone's had a great weekend, and wishing you all a great, productive week!


  1. Nice pics! You look great!

  2. Your photography skills are awesome.. seriously. You take really good pictures! That first picture of Morgan and your dad is precious!
