Day 22: James

I spent my birthday with some of my favorite people in the world, including this little guy.

Meet James. 

National Photo Posting Month :: Day 22

National Photo Posting Month :: Day 22

Who: Meg and James, my youngest nephew, who celebrated turning 1 year old last weekend

When: Saturday, November 21, 2015

Where: At the First Annual (and possibly last) Fake Thanksgiving at my parents' house in Northboro, Massachusetts

Why: This past weekend, all of my brothers and sisters got together to celebrate Thanksgiving a few days early, with a little birthday party celebration for me and James thrown in. There were 9 adults, 3 kids, and 2 dogs. Fortunately, there was also plenty of food, beer, and wine to counteract the effects of too much noise and too little sleep. It's rare all of us are together at the same time, though, so it was special. Honestly, there's no other group I'd rather spend my birthday with. 

Late in the afternoon, my brother's girlfriend Erinn took some photos of all the kids together. I lurked in the background and tried out my new birthday lens here and there. It's been a while since I got a new lens, and this one is magical to work with. I can't wait to use it more.
