Photo Friday 2014 ~ Weeks 26, 27, 28 & 29

I missed a few weeks of Photo Friday because I was out of town visiting Ohio to take my girl to summer camp.  I'm back home now though.  It still feels a little weird to say home in reference to Florida when Ohio was home for so long. While Ohio will always be home in a sense, Florida really feels like home now for us.  I couldn't wait to get back to the heat and the palm trees and the sunshine and the water.  They were having some incredibly mild weather while I was visiting which was nice though.   It was wonderful to see family and friends.  I love that when we visit it's like we haven't been gone at all.  We can just fit right back in.  We went to our old Bible Study one day and went to our old church and saw all the familiar faces.  We went to all of our favorite restaurants and one of our favorite parks.  Some things were different but mostly everything was the same.  There is a certain comfort in that.  There are definitely things about Ohio that we miss, like the lightning bugs and the cornfields and the soft grass.  It was fun experiencing the old, familiar, comfortable things again, even if it was just for a couple of weeks.  I took what seemed like a million photos while I was there.  I booked some photo shoots to help pay for our plane tickets and I ended up with more than enough to cover them.  I think it will definitely be an annual tradition.  And I got to see so many of the families that I've been shooting over the years and shoot a few new ones too.  I took my big camera out a few times for some personal photos.  Not a whole lot though because I used my phone most of the time so that I could just enjoy my time with family and friends without feeling like I had to lug my big camera along.  Here are my favorites from the past month. I hope to blog about some of our activities we did on our trip a little at a time because I have a ton of iPhone photos to share as well.  So, stop back for those in the next week!

If you've followed my blog for a while, then you know all about our Stricker's Grove tradition.  I actually planned our trip so that we could go to it.  If you don't know about it, then take a moment to read my previous posts about it, here and here

This is my cutie pie niece who the last time I saw her wasn't even walking!  She is so adorable and I'm glad we got to see her ride her first little rides.  She had so much fun. :)

My boy doing his favorite thing with his favorite person.  He was in heaven.

My mom always rides the ferris wheel with my boy.  I love how happy they both look in this pic!

I love this pic of the cornfield.  It just says Ohio to me.  But I actually took it in Indiana at my cousin's farm.

My girl was in heaven holding a baby peacock who she named Fuzzy and playing in the barn.  She's such a farm girl.  But then she's also such a beach girl.  You can't put that girl in a box. ;)

There was a field of wildflowers there so of course I had to take about a hundred photos of them.  I couldn't help myself!  This one is my favorite though.

I happened to have my big camera with me so I could back up some photos at my brother's house while we went swimming with I just had to get a shot of these two.  They've known each other since birth and I used to babysit that pretty girl.  He obviously still thinks girls have cooties. :)  Which is totally fine with me.

That's all for now. I better get back to editing photo sessions for all my very patient clients.  I'll hopefully be back to blogging now that I'm back.  I miss it!
