Labor Day Weekend – Pictures, tons of them!

I just forgot to do a post about our fun Labor Day weekend.  Kathleen had all the family over on Sunday for brisket and all the fixin’s.  I even made homemade ice cream.  It was a gorgeous day.  The kids played outside – well, kids includes adult kids.

Action shots

Soccer has started and that means action shots of my favorite subjects, Zachary and Zane.  Zane actually does not start until Oct. 1 but Zachary is up and running (pardon the pun).  And since he is playing most of his games in Lubbock, I have to make sure I get my fill here.  Oh, I will go to Lubbock for a game or two I am sure but for the most part, the three games here will have to do it.  So far I have several good action shots but next time I am getting in closer!  And trying to do more manual adjustments.

He is going to bite his tongue someday!09-17-11 Zachary soccer 04 By the way, do you love the white?  I think it looks great but I can just imagine the cleaning for these things with pre-teen boys!09-17-11 Zachary soccer 11 Pinched out!09-17-11 Zachary soccer 17 09-17-11 Zachary soccer 21 09-17-11 Zachary soccer 25 09-17-11 Zachary soccer 28 09-17-11 Zachary soccer 34This is one of my favorites.  Zachary did  not realize he was going so high for that ball!09-17-11 Zachary soccer 41 Zachary plays goalie most of the time.  Scares me to death.  I can just see missing teeth.09-18-11 Zachary goalie 01 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 04 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 24 The next four are in sequence.09-18-11 Zachary goalie 31 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 32 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 33 Look at the tongue!  And the grass flying off the shoes!09-18-11 Zachary goalie 34 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 42 This position just yells “kick my teeth!”.  09-18-11 Zachary goalie 48 09-18-11 Zachary goalie 52Just out of reach!09-18-11 Zachary goalie 64 Can’t wait to share pictures of Zane and his head waggle.
