With our busy schedules this time of year the emily g family is trying to make a point to fit “family dates” into the mix. This so no small feat with work, shooting, and nap schedules but this weekend we had GREAT success. We grabbed the kiddo, the back up camera, and some sunscreen and headed down to the Portland Rose Festival. While I am usually weary of carnies and parking lot food we had a blast. They had tons of great stuff to look at (and photograph), rides suitable for an average height almost 4 year old, and most importantly cotton candy. We were only there for about 2 hours, but it was the perfect amount of time to get our family date on.
Here are some silly images from our little adventure:
check out our matching chuck taylors, yep that’s how we roll.
We had way too much fun with the photo booths there as well, even if we all look evil in the resulting images.
in the middle you can see the red head’s “motorcycle face”. She kills me, she was so excited every time we got to a ride she was actually tall enough for.
and on the far right check it out! It is the illusive husband, he is actually in this posting twice. I was teased recently by a colleague about how he is not on facebook and not visible on the blog, so here ya go! Handsome devil isn’t he.
The kiddo loved all the sites & sounds. She also scored a new “baby” that she promptly named, get this, Christina Agulara! No clue where that came from, totally had the husby and I in tears laughing about it.
oh and in case you want to know, I rock at skee ball.
oh the drama, her little face is so expressive. I am pretty sure she was begging for cotton candy here!
All in all we had a fantastic family date. If you are in PDX I highly recommend an evening at the Rose Festival, just a few hours is fun and highly entertaining.
Lots more coming on the blog this week, beautiful babies, cute couples and more. Check back!
