And Edward brought a friend or two (or five) with him. Perhaps you recognize him?
Marshall from f/11.
And Marshall brought his beautiful wife. Perhaps you recognize her?
Julie from Journey to Family!
And they also brought along their sweet children:
They don't blog yet. But when they do, I'm sure they'll have some hilarious stories to tell.
Julie is a fellow dork-at-heart, so we immediately attempted our self-portrait to commemorate our afternoon together. Which is even dorkier when you consider that we did have Marshall and his fabulous camera right there with us, and could have had a traditional portrait with a much better chance of correct focus and exposure. :-}
Never fear, though. Marshall wasn't merely idly standing by; he was capturing the essence of our goofiness.
'Twas a very fun afternoon. I can't wait til we do it again.
I'm not a betting woman, but if I were, I'd bet that you could probably find greater detail of our afternoon together at Julie's blog. She uses many more words than I do. And she's WAY wittier than I am. But, if for some reason, she doesn't tell you about the nice but desperate wedding photographer who bought a CF card from Marshall, or how our 9 year-olds were too shy to become buddies til it was time to go home, or ... well, if she doesn't, maybe I will. And be sure NOT to miss Marshall's stunning b&w ocean landscapes.
