This Valentines I decided to hang out with a mom and daughter duo that is part hilarious and part whacky which happens to = awesome! Yes, I happen to be related to them, but that’s what made it even more fun. Since they are both used to my camera (they forget I’m taking pictures most of the time) they really gave me some candid shots of them being the silliest mom and daughter I know…just being themselves.
My sister wanted to take her daughter to a cute little coffee/lounge in downtown Austin called Halcyon.
When she told me that they were doing a Valetnines special for two where you can roast your smores right on the table, I was sold! Both Gena and Ava had a great time getting hyped up on sugar ( a rare occasion for my niece) so the pictures got even sillier when they were done with their sugar sandwiches on a stick !;)
My sister doesn’t always get to hang-out with her oldest daughter “alone” since there are two more little ones at home, but since Ava is the oldest, and is always Moms’s lil helper, it made for a very special Valentines for her to hang out with mom and eat sugar. 😉
I remember my dad sending me a dozen roses to my classroom when I was six years old with a stuffed heart with arms stretched out wide that said “I love you this much!” My teacher mistook them for herself… it was awesome! That was so special to me that I still remember 26 years later like it happened yesterday! I’m sure Ava will remember this Valentines with her mom for years to come, especially since Auntie was there to capture every minute. Happy Valentines my bean fans!
