Mei Mei... Now in second grade... I started this blog because Kim & I were adopting a baby girl from China & now look at her! I'm in awe. So in love.

Aaaahh... Dallas in his element! This is what he lives for. This is what he dreams about & absolutely loves to do. Yes, he loves to go hiking & camping, hunting & archery but what really gets his goat? Paintball.
I had the chance to finally go on a tournament with him, as his photographer! What a blast! I could tell that he loved it too, we had a great time and the weather could not have been better. The previous days were cold, windy & overcast. It had been raining! Yuck. The forecast for the weekend called for light wind and sunny, we could only hope... Turned out that the man on the TV was right! Didn't need to consult our pet rock! We loaded up my car & headed out...
What was supposed to be a trip of an hour only turned into 2.5 as the GPS sent us on a wild goose chase around several counties! Crazy. Dallas didn't mind as the weather was perfect and we were very early. Dallas does not like to be late! Love that about him. We enjoyed the country side as the fall colors are in full effect out here in NE WI. Gorgeous country side. I had my trusty camera with me but as I was driving, and we had a goal, we did not stop to photograph the scenery. I did not want to chance running out of memory or battery! It's happened to me before, during the faerie fest w/Mei Mei and I vowed that it would not happen again. Not while photographing my kids! Made me so mad, I was fuming! IDIOT!
I relished the day & I believe that he did too. Made me so proud.
