Legos - Part 1

We love them
Little pieces, bright colors
(just don't let them fall on the floor!)

We decided to embark on a lego building odyssey
over spring break. 

Star Wars being the theme. 
I was surprised by the response we received from folks. 
Everyone wanted to come and build.
I can do that.
(A Star Wars lego building party!)

We started with a Coast Guard ship. I know,  not 
Star Wars, we needed a warm up. :)

This was the weekend before spring break. 

Once my daughter returned
from college, the kids built the Millennium Falcon.

The kids had a blast. This was all in preparation for the following 
weekend and the Death Star, all 3803 pieces!! 
The party was just getting started..........

Come back and see the fun!

Mothers and Daughters

Such an interesting bond.
And so very different from mothers and sons.

I am lucky enough to have one of each. I love each so
very much and so differently. The needs are different.

Mothers and Daughters ~ 
Love, joy, struggle, fierce pride, heartache,
 and then, if we are lucky, friendship.

I had the pleasure of shooting this mother and daughter. You can
tell from their interactions that they are close.

This last one is significant.  
Olivia was the youngest. 
As a tribute, they both had her name tattoo'd on their ankles. 
It was very important, for me,
to include her on this day.

What is your relationship like with your mother or daughter? Are you
lucky enough to be able to call her your friend?
