Yabba Dabba Duo

Since year 1 of their birth, given his blonde hair and temperament, and her relative ‘pebble-ness”, I’ve longed to see our kids in Flintstones attire for Halloween. Year 1 was too soon, and year 2 was right when we were returning to the bay area and just not an option. Next year, year 4, we pretty much expect they’ll be telling us what costumes they’ll wear. So this year, year 3… this was the last chance. And my lovely and talented wife saw fit to make the costumes by hand, and spent the majority of a week working on them. But damn…. did they turn out great or what? I typically don’t opt to post family photos on this site but in this case I’ll make an exception.

A special thanks goes out to my mom’s help in stripping the existing background from one of the photos, which enable me to work a little of my own photoshop magic and drop ’em right into their hometown. (I’m particularly proud of the shadows). The second photo includes the great work on the shoes.

  2. It is moments like these they make all of the trying times worth it.
    Keep the picture nearby so when you next have one of “those weekends” you can look at the picture, remind yourself of the good times and survive to see the next sunrise – and the kids too.
