if you’re looking at this post you probably already know that ohana means family. what you may not know (until now) is that kim and i both come from ohanas with lots of people in them. another bit of kim and david trivia: we traced our ancestors from both families back to the same area of scotland. further proof that fate has bought me to kim. enough about us.
we’d like you to meet a small part of kim’s ohana, the maxfields. they came from the frozen tundra of utah, and as far away as asia, to share some sweet sweet san diego sunshine. fyi, there are 48 images in this post and that’s not even all of the maxfields. sadly, some couldn’t make the trip to so cal.
kim and i were really happy to see everyone. it had been several years since the last time we saw them, so it was nice to catch up a bit. but i digress.
everyone, meet neil, jeannine, and their ohana.
maxfield trivia: maxfield’s chocolates is neil and jeannine’s family business. (and they’re gooood)
oh, one more thing before we get going too far. you are about to see some of the cutest kids on the planet, so tell whoever else is in the room with you to not be alarmed when they hear you say “awww” repeatedly. in fact, tell them to “awww” along with you. it’s ok. there’s no other dudes around.
i’ll get you started.
awwww isn’t she precious? yes!
i haven’t seen any pictures of bobbi when she was a kid, but i bet she looked a lot like this. love the red hair!
fact: if your dad throws you high enough, your hair will stay like this forever. true story.
fun with gif
we actually got all the kids to sit still for a second. one second.
brothers and sisters are so fun to take pictures of.
it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eyebrow.
we couldn’t end this session without getting a shot of jeannine with her brother don (my father-in-law). they don’t get to see each other very often, so it was really nice to spend a little time catching up and take some family photos. we miss you already and we hope you all have a happy and safe holiday season.
God bless you. hope to see you again really soon.
