Guatoberfest Pictures

Here are my pictures (finally) from Guatoberfest. What a weekend we had!!!!! It's been fun to go look at everyone's pictures. I'll put links on here so you can go see pictures from people who actually took good (and many) pictures.

(today is our one year anniversary of our embassy appointment - the time has gone so fast, but yet that seems like a lifetime ago!!)
Alex kept checking out all of the kids in the room.

Kerry - talking to the group.

Yeah Kerry and JuJu!!! You guys did a great job!!

Gabriella - will you be mine?

Mommy, I think she said yes!!!!!

Oh, crap - I forgot what daddy told me. Do you guys see that smile on her face? She now thinks I'm going to buy her purses!!!! (daddy told me that mommy likes purses a lot also, and he has to buy her new ones all the time.)

Yeah!! Steps!!! (mommy really wished that daddy was on the trip once I found the steps)

YEAH!!! Mommy - do you see all of these really cool kids??!??!

How do I look in this? (yes, this is a preview of his Halloween outfit)

The Saturday evening dinner crew. (Mindy, Alex, JB, Sophie, Cameron and Gabriella)

What did you say, Mindy? The kids are back there playing in the grass? What are doing still in these strollers???

Ummm, excuse me, can I stand on that, please?

Ok - I guess I'll just stand on this one.

Ok - this was hilarious!! Sophie wasn't sure about the grass at first. She crawled around on her hands and feet like this. It was almost like she didn't want to get her knees in the grass. It was pretty funny!!

But....it didn't last forever.

This is the only picture I got from the aquarium. Alex was tired and cranky - and it was very crowded. (but it was pretty amazing!!)

Dora, do you want me to brush your hair?

Psych!! I need to brush my own hair.

(ok - so those last two weren't from Guatoberfest but were from today)

Sarah said...

Alex is too cute! It was great driving all the way to Atlanta just to get to see you when we live like 15 minuts away!

Can I tell you that your singing voice is beautiful? Sunday's service was wonderful!!

See you soon, I hope!

VERY cute. I think you did a pretty darn good job with the pics. It is really hard to wield a camera and tame an unruly toddler at the same time (although Alex seems pretty non-unruly to me!)...
It was great to meet you and spend the weekend in celebration of the families!
