You know I couldn’t let another Fall/Holiday season past without getting some family photos done. These photos were taken a couple of weekends ago at a local park/outdoor historic museum and I couldn’t be happier with them.  These days, Austin’s mood (he’s currently 23 months) or if he will smile in front of a camera or not is always a toss up and you never know what you will get.  Thankfully, on this day, he was in a GREAT mood and did tons of smiling and laughing for us!

Swinging him became his new favorite activity… and he really didn’t want us to stop.  Like I said, anything to make him smile… :)
