Even though I failed to publicly declare it, or share it in a timely manner on this blog, my hubby and Ali's grandpas did get their Father's Day wishes from Ali on time. This photo shoot went much like the Mother's Day photo shoot, except this time Ali's Grandma Erickson played the part of assistant instead of Doug so he could be surprised by this shot.
We used the chalkboard just like last time, but I didn't know what to draw. I tried a goldfish, but that didn't look right, so I just wrote the message and went without a drawing, until Ali pawed at it the second I put it down, that's what lead to her little hand prints. Then I drew the best heart of my life in the other corner. Too bad her darling head is in the way!
There aren't as many outtakes this time. It was the kind of annoying overcast day outside that makes it look perfect for pictures, but your still squinty, so that's why her little eyes are nearly closed. She was also playing with an Easter egg the whole time, but she's happy. And did you notice that she's in basically the same pose as the Mother's Day photo? She knows what looks good!
Just like last time, we have a scheming kind of photo. More accurately, she's watching Lucy our beagle run amok in our yard.
I love this little bonus picture. When Ali gets really excited, this is kinda her look. Mouth wide open and laughing.
For Daddy and Grandpa Erickson, we did a quick costume change and put her in a Cubbie Bear tee. It's a little big, but still adorable. She was getting a little tired of being outside, so I just went with this pic.
Happy Late Father's Day to all of the dads, grandpas, uncles, and friends out there. I hope you had a great day and got lots of snuggles from your little ones!
