Never a dull moment...

...when the Vaughns come to town.
This past visit with the Vaughn family, even thought it was their longest trip here so far, flew by way to fast. Like I said in my last post, most of their visit here was spent in WV doing VBS, but sometime in that week Sarabeth and I managed to talk our hubbies in to agreeing to a Volpe/Vuaghn family trip to the Safari Park.
Bryan, Cheyenne and I had been once before with my mom and brothers. It was a fun trip the first time we went and nothing short of HILARIOUS the second visit. For those of you who know the Vaughns, you know that where they go a story aways follows. I am not a very good story teller (I think that is why I love photography so much), so I took my camera to capture the comedy. Unfortunately when you are hemmed up in the back (not the backseat...the VERY back) of and SUV with the hatch window open, trying hold your brand new Nikon in one hand and a small bucket of feed in the other, plus your four year old is bouncing up and down on your lap and large safari animals (who act like they have not ate in weeks) are sticking their heads in your vehicle...and some times even trying to climb in the vehicle...it is a little hard to "capture the moment" on camera. But here are a few I thought were good: 

Believe it or not...I missed getting any pics of the really good parts of the ride. Like when the ostrich was attacking Sarabeth and Rob stopped the car and locked the window so she could not roll it up. LOL! Good times:) Well Vaughns, as always you leave us counting down 'til our families get together again! And in the mean time we have the stories and memories we made while you were here to keep us laughing until then:)

Down on the ranch...

...Saddle Ridge Ranch that is!

Our family was blessed enough to participate in two VBS programs this year...and back to back might I add:) It was and exausting two weeks but also very rewarding. Our first VBS week was spent in WV at Calvery Southern Baptist Church as a home missions progect. A progect too large for the Volpe Srs. and Volpe Jrs. to do alone...so we brought the Vaughns along too. It was a great week and just as in any mission progect we walked away wondering who was really ministered to...Calvery Southern Baptist Church or the "missionaries".

Week two: the Vaughns had to return home to help with VBS in Alachua (but not before a quick trip to the safari park...that post will be soon) and we were doing the same at KCBC. I could tell you what a blast we had during VBS on the creek, but I will let the pics do the talking:)

Wedding pics are up...

Most of you have seen some of mom's wedding pictures on Facebook...but for you slackers who don't have a Facebook page---you can see a few snaps I took of the wondrful day on my True Light Photography Blog.

the latest with the volpes:

There has been a lot going on at the Volpe home to keep me to busy for blogging. My first month of the new photog business was a HUGE success. I was able to book around 10 photo sessions in the month of June. I am so thankful for the blessing to be doing one of my biggest dreams. Praying that the Lord continues to bless True Light Photography.

I also took on a new title in the month of June: wedding coordinator. Who's wedding? ...My mom. That's right--- Va really is for lovers. Mom and Bob tied the knot on July 2nd.

I am not posting pics at this time. I am actually on my phone on my way to a mission project. Promise to start blogging better when I get home.
