Of course, I took my camera to capture some family memories, and at one point my 8-year old nephew asked me if he could take some photos with it.
I believe I surprised a couple of people when I said yes.
I thought it was sweet that he wanted to try, so I set it to auto dial for him, put the strap around his neck and showed him how to hold the camera and take a shot. His tiny little hands could hardly reach the shutter button, but he happily (and more importantly, carefully) walked around the living room getting candid shots of family members and seeming quite proud of himself.
This is my nephew, Josh, dressed up for the wedding on Saturday.
He’s my brother, Pete’s boy.
(how cute is he?)
When viewing the photos later, I found it interesting how people sometimes react to a child taking their picture.
Wild woman Dani. She is so much fun.
(She’s Ginny’s girl).
My sister, Ginny, on the left next to my son, Matt. Next to Matt is Judy’s daughter, Mel, and her boyfriend, Alex.
(his name is Joe).
Emily (the bride) and her sister, Samantha.
(They’re Charlotte’s girls).
Josh even snapped a photo of his aunts.
Char, me and Judy with Ginny in the front.
I have no idea what this is all about.
It may have had something to do with the mimosas, though.
But all in all, I think Josh did a pretty good job at being photographer for a little while.
Hey, Joshie . . .
“Hey, Aunt Katy!”
: : :
It’s not that often that I get to spend time with my family like we did last weekend and the one before and I thank God and my lucky stars for the people I love.
Can you tell I’m still on a high from it all?

Until the next time, my friends . . .
