This afternoon was my niece Zoe’s 10th birthday party, her real birthday is this Wednesday. But a bunch of close friends and family members gathered at “Chez Rocker” for a little celebration this afternoon. Usually I like to leave my camera at home when I’m not working but today I felt inclined to bring it along. Perhaps because I just got a brand new Hayward tote bag and I needed to put some stuff in it so that I could show it off. :) Whatever the reason, having it with me inspired me to shoot more personal stuff on a regular basis so I’m going to make an attempt to drag my camera pretty much wherever I go and just see what happens…even if only to have plenty of images to blog.

So here are a few from Miss Zoe’s party. After all of the kiddos were like shriveled little raisins from being in the pool for hours and hours, it was time for some cupcakes and “happy birthday” action.

Tomorrow night Gary and I are taking Zoe out by herself for a “grown up” date since she is 10 and that’s sort of a big deal. I’ll post back with a report when we get home.

    i love these pictures! even if i didn’t love the kids, i’d love the pictures. “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” is the last one…from a statue of the three monkeys doing the same.

    i love the individual closeups too…
