A Day In The Park With Family, Friends and a Photo Bomber

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado CRE# 40005863

Saturday was a fun day for us all.

Our Daughter, Erin Bates had an event at 4 Mile Historic Park to celebrate her new job as a full time loan originator with Nova Home Loans in Cherry Creek.

Her new company hosted a gathering for her friends, family and business associates. 

I was trying to take a picture of Erin and one of the Realtors she works with  Amy Preyer,  when my husband Craig just had to be in the picture.

His antics certainly got these girls smiling.


Here is a picture of the three of us together.

Erin made these cute sunflowers glued to clothes pins for everyone to wear so they could be recognized as they wandered through the park.


Erin is very happy at her new place and they all treat her very well.


If you are happy at work, you can't help but SUCCEED!

The photo bomber is a great addition! At first I thought the guy in the back was who you were talking about as the photo bomb, :-) Kasey

I noticed that guy too when I posted the pic.  These men and their need to be in the spotlight!  LOL

Congratulations to Erin! She's so smart and creative too. That was a brilliant idea to make the sunflower glued to clothes pins! I have a feeling she's going to go very far in life with her innovate and caring personality.

Those photos are terrific. The family photo is absolutely wonderful! I see pride in each of your faces!

Your daughter is a spittin' image of you, Belinda! But of course you already know that!

I don't get the deal with the sunflowers. Do you not recognize each other without them?

Ha ha.  It was for the video person to be able to find her group in the crowd.  There were lots of events going on and like a couple thousand people there.
