Rope and Ride

What an incredible week I have had being back in good ol' Arizona! I have definitely missed this place more than words can explain. There is honestly nothing better than spending time with this crazy amazing family of mine. This weekend we had friends and family over for some roping and riding and it was GREAT to see everyone. I am so looking forward to many more weekends just like this, especially with the weather being as perfect as it is =] And maybe I will ride next time... when I am not deathly afraid of the horse bucking me off...
I am also looking forward to getting behind the camera for more candid shots like these! I am so used to taking posed photos [or somewhat at least] so this kind of stuff is more out of my comfort zone... mostly because I know its kind of awkward having someone randomly taking a photo of you if your not expecting it... or even worse... if you are expecting it and you don't know what to do... =0 Its really awkward for everyone involved, including me, I mean, I gotta sit there and creep and stalk people... Its also out of my comfort zone because it means I need to adjust my camera over and over with the different lighting situations and it can be frustrating! Once again, its easy when I am doing posed shots because I don't have to adjust the lens too much, and I have already scoped the location out and figured out what settings I need. All this bright sunshine stuff was interesting to get right let me tell you! Anyways, here's our fun day with friends and family!

One of the moments I was just talking about, the "umm are you taking a picture of me?" shots. haha.

A REAL LIVE cowboy for Faith? Hahah Pam, see what I did there ;]
Also... those fingers are the highlight of her life right now.

Yummy iced tea and toes... wait what??

Lotssss of kissing going on this weekend!
