We weren't the only ones visiting the grandparents the last few weeks. Jen's brother and his wife and kids were also visiting from overseas.

The kids, aged 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 really took to The Bean (it may have helped that he brought them StarWars and Hello Kitty t-shirts), and he really took to them. The Bean would watch them run around all over the place and just giggle hysterically at their antics, which they, in turn, got a huge kick out of.

Grandpa wanted to get a photo of the three kids together, so we set up an impromptu photoshoot in the backyard.

Unfortunately my SIL wasn't around for that because she's an amazing amateur photographer who studied photography in school and is just now trying to break into the field professionally.

However, we were fortunate enough to have her snap some shots of The Bean (and us) before she left.

Now we need to choose which ones to print for various relatives! Any input would be appreciated!


  1. Oh, that last photo is just as precious as can be! I love it! :)

  2. What gorgeous photos! i love the first close-up of him smiling a's so cute and serene. Beautiful family.

  3. I like 2nd from the top and 2nd from the bottom of the professional shots. Too cute!

  4. Thanks for the feedback! Our photoshop is running a buy-one-get-one enlargement sale this weekend so I'm going to try to go over today to take advantage of it!

  5. I love the 4th from the bottom! And I like the last two but think the first of the last two wins (if slightly!).

    Great photos! You and I hit the jackpot with talented sisters-in-law, eh? :-)
