Erin is a good friend of the family, and we are "bus stop buddies" with our sons. It was a great opportunity for me to be able to take a portrait of her. Thanks Erin. Go see her new blog at Hybrid Mom. She does share blog space with a couple other moms, so have a look or point your favorite mom there.
