On March 20, 2012, Lucas got the opportunity to do a little modeling photo shoot for a local boutique. No, we are not putting him in modeling, no we did not get paid a ton of money, we basically did it just to see if he could get picked.
Here's the picture I submitted:
So, the photoshoot was in the afternoon at Seashore State Park (also known as First Landing) and was supposed to be on the beach. Unfortunately, the "holding area" was on a concrete pavilion, so while Luke waited his turn (I think there were 16 kids) he managed to skin both knees and an elbow. Oops. :(
Vinnie waited on the blanket in the grass, took a nap in the baby carrier, and hung out in the stroller while we waited. He almost got to model a dress, but she didn't want to cause any future damage by cross-dressing him. He got lots of compliments on being such a well behaved, well mannered, patient little baby. :)
When it was his turn, Luke did AMAZING. The photographer & the boutique owner both raved about how well he took directions & how cute he was with the other kids. (both had previous modeling experience--Luke just gets LOTS of pictures taken!)
I LOVE the beach. I tell Tim I'd be okay moving to CO someday, but I will most definitely miss this & we better be able to come "home" at least once a year.
Vinnie LOVED the sand. He was so bright eyed and smiley, even though it was chilly and late. He definitely enjoyed his first trip to the beach. :)
And, Luke was a typical boy, getting sand all over the expensive outfit he was modeling:
We were there until about 10 minutes after 7 and both boys were exhausted when we left. We grabbed McDonald's and hit the road to home. Luke fell asleep without touching his nuggets and slept until 2 am before he nursed. Then he slept the rest of the way through the night!
