Blog Hop! Favorite Pictures

Welcome to the newest Blog Hop! :) This one is all about my favorite picture or pictures. As you can probably tell, I LOVE taking pictures of people, whether I'm in the picture or not. So, sit back and enjoy, and I'll make sure to give some background information about each picture. :)

One of the girls I babysit (Nathalia) came with my mom and grandfather to pick me up from the airport when I came in from visiting my dad. Once I picked her up when I saw her, she didn't leave my side once, except when I went to find my baggage. I love this little girl with all my heart, and this picture reminds me that sometimes, all you need is a hug from a little girl who doesn't know - or probably care - that things go wrong in life every day.

This picture was taken last summer when I was up in the mountains in New York State with my best friend, her brother, mom, and cousin. We were hiking the last day, and my best friend and I were farther ahead of everybody. I took a picture over my shoulder while we were walking, and after I looked at it after taking it, I smiled so much. Jimmy (the cousin) is in front, Colton (the brother) is behind him - and slightly blurry - and Jenn (her mother) is in the very back.

This again was taken during our hike in the mountains of New York. Jimmy and Colton were chilling at this rock while we were taking pictures of the scenery (which was GORGEOUS!). They looked great in the lighting, so I took a picture of two members of the family I've adopted as my own. :)

Rachael, me, and our families (my mom and sister, her mom and brother) LOVE to go to concerts together. Last year after the New York trip, we went to go see Boys Like Girls, The Maine, Good Charlotte, and Metro Station. After we were starting to get a bit tired, we went into the tent area to cool off since everybody was pushed up against eachother during the concert (outside concert, no seating). My little sister took this picture of us while we were obviously posing for another picture. This picture is one of my favorites because it shows me that even though last summer we had a major fight, we've stayed best friends for over 6 years so far, and nothing, not even boys, can come between me and my best friend :)

This is a picture of Nathalia, the first time I babysat her. It was in December of 2007, when she was about 2 years old. We were in the doctors office where both her mom works and my mom works. They were having a meeting in another room, so we sat in the kitchen playing in there. She was so shy at first, and then she ended up crawling on the floor and into my lap. She was so cute and adorable then. And she still is too. :)

This is Rachael's cousin Ciara. She is another person that I have adopted as my own family member. She is a goofball, just like us. We were at the hospital in the waiting room because her mom had given birth the day before to her baby brother and there were lots of people in the hospital room right then. We decided to hang out in the waiting room to avoid all of them, and did so quite well for a while. :)

Hope you all enjoyed this week's blog hop!!

Lovely pictures!
I loved naughty Nathalia's picture and the fantastic picture where the forest has been blurred in the backdrop.

Keep up the good work :)
