Durham Horse Farm Kids Pictures

I am back!  

Finally, after having to get a new computer and get back up and running, I am happy to say that I am back to normalcy and very ready to take on 2015.  More of that to come later though.  For now, I want to share some pictures from our fun today at a friend's horse farm out in Rougemont.  Talk about a beautiful area and we had such a beautiful day outside today.  It was a great Sunday!  The kids truly enjoyed themselves and even met a few horses and ran free all over!

North Raleigh Soccer Family Fun Day

We had some nice weather last weekend, though you really couldn't have told from this weeks rain and more rain.  It was definitely a weekend where you had to get out there and enjoy it.  My son has been taking some soccer classes and my daughter has also been showing interest in it so we decided to enjoy the great weather playing some soccer.  We had a lot of fun and the kids love any chance they get to run around and just be!  It was great.

Just a Sunday {Raleigh Lifestyle Family Photographer}

But I wouldn't trade it for any other.  I love the weekends.  Even though I do most of my sessions during the weekends, the days are usually family days and I just love them.  They are usually fairly busy between errands, kid activities, housework, and sessions but we usually make them ours.  When my son saw my husband about to head out to go mow the yard, he was all about it.  He wanted to go be with daddy and help him.  it was seriously one of the cutest things to watch- even my daughter got up and watched them with me.  I took just a couple pictures of the dual efforts and just wanted to share my two men.

On Location: Falls Lake & River North Raleigh NC

We decided to check out Falls Lake/River a couple weekends ago, as we had yet to go there.  It wasn't long after our arrival that I realized that I may have to consider this just Part 1 because the place is HUGE.  So needless to say I wasn't able to get to come close to checking everything out.  However, I will say what we were able to see was pretty neat.  We first went in over off of Falls of Neuse near the "visitor center".  We parked in an area that was near a wooden bridge/walkway.  I love bridges for pictures, I really do - so anytime I see one I file it away in memory. We then headed over to the dam area- there were some ok spots.  We continued to walk under a bridge where it became part of a path.  There were some really pretty spots there that I am anxious to get back to and really explore and share with you all.  I think there is a lot to offer at this location especially as you go forward on this path, so I definitely consider it a viable option for a location and I plan on visiting again really soon!

I did manage to take a couple pictures of the kids while we were briefly out there on the bridge!  Stay tuned though as more will follow of Falls Lake/River as well as other locations in the area!

North Raleigh Easter Family Photos

For those that celebrate Easter- I hope that you all had a happy one!  After a total of 3 egg hunts in the past week, it is obvious here that the kids had a special time and we have WAY too much candy in the house.  Yesterday was a great day spent with close friends, great food, excellent weather, lots of eggs, and playing.  I think all the kids slept pretty well last night- I know I sure did.  I have attached some pictures of the kids - Enjoy!  Time to start getting back to work!
