On my birthday (May 13), I treated myself to a picnic with my boys at the Botanical Gardens and pictures with our friend, Lauren Clark. I snuck out of work 30 minutes early to grab dinner and a blanket, picked the boys up from school, and surprised them with a picnic at the gardens. And Wade surprised me by taking off early and joining us. It was a treat, and the perfect way to spend a birthday. We found a great shady spot under a giant pine, and lounged until Lauren joined us.
Lauren has taken the boys' pictures for the last three years and she's moving to Kansas City in June. NO! We will miss her friendship, her sweet spirit and, of course, her beautiful pictures.
