Thank you, Stan and all those who serve or have served

I thought it only appropriate to post these pictures from my shoot last month with this incredible family today, Veterans Day. Stan has been in the Navy for over 10 year and next week will start his 6th deployment. This family was so much fun to spend the day with in Seattle! When I first got the e-mail from Noel I had to read it a few times and make sure it was really from her. This is where the amazing power of the world wide web comes into play. I have stopped by Noel's blog for a long time. She take beautiful photos and is an incredible scrapbooker. She is filled with great ideas! So when she contacted me I was a little surprised. I have since learned that another wonderful scrapbooking friend of mine, Angela, sent her my way. Thanks, Angela!! So the date was set, the weather was beautiful and the photos, well, lets just say, she's got plenty to choose from!
After leaving Gas Works and heading to downtown we stopped at Dick's for a burger. It was my first time there and it didn't disappoint!
This picture is probably one of my favorites. If you would have seen who was coming down the alley by us you too would have had a hard time keeping your eyes on the camera!

After wandering through Pike's Place we ended up by the fountains and the girls got to cool off. Needless to say a FULL day in Seattle taking pictures the entire time led to LOTS of photos. I just could hardly narrow it down. I'm sure I still missed some favorites! When I was chatting with Noel later on about the day she said "I just smile thinking about that day." Me, too!

Sharing your photos here was enough of a THANKS to me! Makes me smile to look at them and think of your fun day together.

And yes, Thanks to Stan for serving and to his family for their great attitudes about sending him off on yet another deployment. Thinking of you all!
