Civil War and Haircuts - two unrelated topics!

Our time in VA is winding down and we only have about a week and a half left before we return to AZ to spend the holidays with our family.

We have not been taking near enough photos, but here are a few we've been able to grab.

One monumental event that has taken place recently is that Cailyn had her first real haircut. We've cut her bangs several times, but never her "real" hair. As you may have gathered from previous photos, her hair was getting rather wild and unweildy. I finally bit the bullet and cut it. The longest strands of her hair reached all the way down to the middle of her back, but only a select few were that long. So, we evened it out and it looks much better - and she looks quite a bit older! :o(

This is either the before shot or the latest baby coutoure fashion shot...

This is the back of her hair before we cut it. It was several different lengths and never laid quite this nicely on a regular basis - this is freshly combed w/detangler. :O)

Here is the back after. The front after shots were really blurry for some reason, so they didn't make it to the blog. Hopefully before too long we'll put up some more pics so you can see the finished product better.

One neat thing we did one afternoon was go with some friends to a Civil War foundry near downtown where they used to make the cannons and things for the C. W. I wish we'd had more time to explore, but here are a few shots that were fun.

The girls had fun running circles through this archway

We took our friends' picture on the stairs, so Hannah wanted her's taken, too. So I just started shooting and here are some shots we got:

For some reason this one makes me think of the picture of bigfoot in the woods "caught" looking at the camera
