Fall Pictures 2011

Last weekend we took a drive into the country to hopefully take some pictures of Bridget in a cotton field. I had neglected to take some 2-year pictures of her all dressed up and I figured it hasn't been too long since her birthday. However, the timing wasn't the greatest. First of all, I needed Aaron with me. Secondly, we were on a time crunch... the farmers were in the process of harvesting the cotton (fields just 1/2 a mile up the road had already been harvested). Thirdly, Bridget needed to be in a good mood, and finally, it couldn't be too cold outside. This particular Saturday was chilly in the morning. So we waiting until after her nap. We didn't get out there until 4 p.m. and the sun was shining at the worst angle. So I was unable to get any awesome shots of her like I did for her first birthday pictures. And if only the girl would stop talking for once and look at the camera!

After taking pictures in the cotton field, we drove out to the university to get tickets for The Nutcracker! After getting the tickets, we walked around the campus for a bit and Bridget discovered the many squirrels that call the university their home. Here she is saying hello to one by the tree:

I thought these particular trees were pretty and at Bridget height so I tried again at taking more pictures. Again, the girl is talking up a storm. In order to keep her by the trees, I made her believe that a squirrel was in the bushes. So the entire time she was saying, "whea he go?". Just my luck!

I just hope she'll be a little easier on me when I take her Christmas pictures. I'd hate to have to pay someone else to do it!
