Picture Pages, Picture Pages

Last week we took a QUICK trip to Pittsburgh to visit friends, the zoo and get some photos done by our friend Ginger. Here are some of my favorites of the weekend. She did a great job capturing my kids despite the fact that they were WAY overtired and beyond their breaking point and did not cooperate AT ALL! :)

(If you are in the Pittsburgh or Erie area she is great. Check her photography and design business out here)

Mommy and Hope after our evening at the zoo.

Ha! Look how sweaty Luke is! They played hard all day!

Don't freak out (though I did) Howard had a good hold on Ben and there is ground below that fence before it drops off! :)

Loving on Hope

The Bolte Girls

Cutie Boys in their tshirts Ginger made for them

Hope getting some Lukey love

Silly Boy

Apparently Ginger is FUNNY!

Okay, so this could be my favorite picture of Luke EVER! How handsome is that boy!?

Such awesome boys!

Look at that posture! :) I know it is hard to imagine, but Ben would NOT cooperate!

Rock it out Ben!


Crazy boy fun!

Your daughter has THE most beautiful complexion I have ever seen on a baby. That first picture is just beautiful. All of your children are such beautiful kids. You are truly blessed.

Okay, so I have to share that I tried to sing the Picture Pages theme song, but couldn't remember it all :o( Thank goodness for YouTube because I found it there. ( Anyway, know that wasn't the point of this post, but that was a total "blast from the past" and I thank you for that :o)

Oh, and your kids are adorable, you look great, and Ginger is not only an awesome photographer, but a terrific friend too ;o) (since, that was the point of this post, right?! ha ha!)

Thanks for sharing!

Love the great pictures and those t-shirts. How did she make them?

I wanted to make some t-shirts that say--Big Brother, Big Sister for our baby's siblings (baby is due in October). Didn't know if anyone had any suggestions as to where I could find decals to do so.

You have a beautiful family. Thanks for sharing!

With love and hope,
