SLO Trip

Last weekend we took a trip up to San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles to see my Mom's side of the family and celebrate the marriage of my cousin Katy. The reception was at my Aunt's beautiful ranch where we visit each year before Thanksgiving. Dayla got to hang out with the Sundins and Cavers as well as some relatives she had never met before. We had a blast and it was great to see family we haven't caught up with in a long time.

Aunt Kristy got Dayla and Violet matching dresses

The Sundin/Caver Family

The reception was set up outdoors in beautiful weather

Aunt Amy had blackberry bushes which Dayla went nuts over. She must have eaten 100... many of them ripe.

Lots of land to roam on

Dayla is scared of her Uncle Keith. Not sure why.

She had a blast with her 2nd cousin Logan who is only 10 days older

She didn't really understand the bike but liked sitting on it

James thoroughly enjoyed his dessert

The next day, we hung out at the same park my parents used to go to when they attended Cal Poly

Dayla's Photoshoot

You would think that since opening the Sundin Photography business that we would be constantly practicing photoshoots with Dayla. It is not true my friend. I know. I too am surprised. I have been wanting to do a legit "photo shoot" with Dayla for a while, but it is harder then you think to be both parent and photographer.

Well today I went to "scout" a location that I am doing a photo shoot at tomorrow and I am PLEASED to say that all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place (and I was able to snag a couple photos!) Dayla woke up and wanted to wear a dress, a clip, we went to a great location, had good lighting, and best of all a happy toddler. Here are the two I snapped.

San Diego Fair

Dayla and I hit the San Diego Fair this morning along with our friends Jeff and Tabitha. The dads did pretty good considering we had no feminine support. We checked out the livestock, the photography exhibit, cruised by the rides, and had a couple orders of Australian battered potatoes (with nacho cheese). Dayla spent most of the time just staring agape at all the people, colors, and noise. Here are a few pictures from our brief adventure.

This is Rock-It the Robot. He's like a 9-foot tall theme park character. He saw me taking his picture and posed.

A clown band

Fair food. The Zuccini Weeni and Deep Fried Frog Legs were new this year

I want to get the same haircut as this Alpaca

There was an impromptu Michael Jackson memorial in the music pavilion. Jeff is a big MJ fan and left this note.

We wandered out of the photo exhibit into the seats used for horse racing. There was no one around so Dayla and Tabby got to run around for a while.

I admit I asked Dayla to hug Tabby. I was surprised she actually did it.

The seats weren't clean. I’m sure Dayla gave Tabby a dirty back in that hug.

This guy was actually working on the ride while people were on it and it WAS IN MOTION. Jeff and I were flabbergasted.

Fair lemonade isn't that great but the heat outside made it delicious.

There was a band playing so Dayla and Tabby had to get their groove on.
