Runnin and jumpin and runnin and jumpin

Sweet Natalie turned two a few weeks ago and we marked the occasion with a photo shoot at Greenlake. She was a ball of energy the entire time, and could only be slowed down for a minute with snacks. At one point during the shoot she was racing around the grass saying "I'm runnin and jumpin and runnin and jumpin and runnin and jumpin." It was a challenge to keep up with all her runnin and jumpin but she certainly made the shoot a lot of fun. Toward the end of the shoot we decided to put some of that energy to good use on the playground. As soon as she was on the swing she changed her tune from runnin and jumpin to shrieks of "blastoff!" and "higher higher, daddy!"

Hopefully the photos of this sweet family in motion provide an accurate reminder of what their life was like with two-year-old Natalie.
