I was a little bummed when I realized I would be out of town and on the first day of my trip visiting family, and would miss the +The Google + One Year Anniversary Photowalk. There wasn’t one planned in the area I’m in right now, and I really just wanted to spend that first day in town with my family.

So … I spent the entire day with my camera photographing my family. :)

I think it was a good alternative, and I guess, in my mind, I’ll call it a photowalk. I spent the day with the people I love the most, created some beautiful memories for us all, and the coolest part is that my family got to meet +Brian Matiash for the first time … the man I met here on +Google+ last year and has now somehow etched his way into my life for good. :)

These photos are from a catfish-fishing trip I took late at night with my brother, sis-in-law and @Brian Matiash … and yes, we caught two! We did a catch/release, but they were definitely good-sized keepers. Brian reeled in the first one … his first time fishing and he caught a fish!

If you want to check out my other photos from yesterday, this is a quick collage of my nieces and nephews:
