One of my good friends Colleen and her family have their annual “Gathering of the Girls” this weekend. I got to tag along for a bit and take photos of this too cute family!

Before I get to the photos, I have to tell you that this family gets together each year over Mother’s Day weekend and just spends time together. All the women in the family who can be there. What a great idea!

Before I left the park after taking their pictures, Colleen and all the girls gave me an early birthday gift! And it was so cute–each of the them signed their name on the outside of the box! And inside… Tons of Scenic Route scrapbooking product! AH!! They really know a way to a girl’s heart, don’t they? Too sweet of them! Truly, Colleen is one of the most genuine and kind people I know and I suspected that her family was the same. Now I know they are. :)

Anyhow, here are just a few of my favorites. I couldn’t narrow it down to less than ten, so there are a few here and then make sure to go over here for the rest of the ten.




And here’s Colleen and one of her daughters. Aren’t they beautiful?!
