I love cameras and photographs. I have become the family photographer, by default (and because I love it). I love to look at pictures. As I have been looking back at pictures on my computer of Robert and Ashley I was amazed at how well they tell the story of his recovery from his last bone marrow transplant. I also thought they showed how much these two superheroes love each other. You can just see it in their eyes and poses. I hope you enjoy this little photo journey as much as I did! I will tell the date/event of the different pictures taken.
This picture was taken April 11, 2008 at Elijah's baby blessing. Such a cute couple, and Robert is looking quite dapper between chemo sessions!
Steve and I drove our truck down to Tucson at the end of July 2008 to pick up the superheroes and all their super gear. We were lucky to have our Whiting cousins who live in Mesa take us out on the lake for a day. This picture was taken August 1st. RobDob wasn't allowed in the water, too many germies!
August 12th. Ashley is a hardcore Rockband rocker! Check out her performance face! Robert is just cute as can be with his orange leukemia bracelet. He lost ALL his hair during his bone marrow transplant.
August 14th, which makes Ashley the birthday girl! If you look really hard and squint your eyes a little you can see the peach fuzz hair that Robert grew back first (before he got his real hair back), on his chin and his head!
August 17th, this picture was taken at the first Brad Squires Family Reunion at Jacob's Lake (near the Grand Canyon).
August 18th, another shot at Jacob's Lake. As you can see Robert employed his hat to keep his melon warm!
November 7th, this shot Ashley took herself! It is a perfect example of Robert's smiley 'half moon' eyes. Ashley is always telling Robert to 'open your eyes' when anyone is taking pictures of them, so funny!
November 27th, Thanksgiving Day! The tryptophan has taken effect here folks!
December 24th, Christmas Eve! Look at that head of dark hair! Such a cute couple!
January 2nd, at Raising Canes! Yummy!
Same day, swinging in the park!
