Black & White Wednesday: 2010 Summer Family Vacation

Remember me my fellow black & white Wednesday participants? What? You don't? Well, that could have something to do with the fact that I haven't participated in black & white Wednesday over at Lisa's blog for months and months. And you know what? I've missed it!

Much the same way that I've been slacking on black & white Wednesday posts, I've also been a slacker in posting anything from our August summer family vacation. So I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and post some black & white photos from our recent trip! A busy girl like me has to find shortcuts anyway I can!

On vacation, my husband and I took our four kiddos to the Poconos, then to Philadelphia, and finally to Washington D.C. It was a great time, too short as many vacations seem to be. But many memories {and photos} were made.

Here's just a few in black and white. I'll try to post a few more from vacation later this week!

I love this photo of my husband with our four kids, taken while on a hike in the Poconos...


And here's Gavin exploring life outside his hiking backpack...


Another one taken while on a hike. We are a hiking family, what can I say! I love vintage-looking B&W's like this one...


And here is a shot from Washington D.C. The kids are sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, looking out onto the Washington Monument...


Chloe in the big city...


And one last shot, of Chloe and me...


Thanks for visiting! To check out more black & white photography, visit The Long Road to China

What a fun vacation!! These are all beautiful (and your two older boys look exactly alike!)

I agree that the Washington Monument photo is wonderful! I think my favorite is the vintage b&w. Lots of fun happy energy in that one, and beautiful processing.

They are all great photos - and it is GREAT to have you back :)

Beautiful! All of them are really interesting and unique but I'm especially partial to the silhouette of the kids on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and, of course, the one of you and Chloe. Lovely!

What beautiful pictures! Welcome back... and as you can see I'm a bit late on commenting. ;-)

Looks like your summer vacation was wonderful. I give you such credit to take 4 little ones on such an amazing trip. I don't think I would have enough patience for that type of adventure.

Love all of your pictures, but the one with you and your daughter truly stands out. Gorgeous!

Hmmm, which one is my favorite?? The kids overlooking the Lincoln Memorial OR..you & your darling baby girl?!! Two beautiful girls??

I love them all - great black & white post, Angie!

Umm, the Washington Monument, NOT the Lincoln Memorial. Wow, yes, I am American.
