I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. I do love extended weekends, my hubby’s extra help around is so so welcomed! We had a fun filled busy weekend full of outside ventures and sweet treats. I had my camera most of the weekend but not all and there were a few moments I will have to cherish mentally for years to come. The twins digging into their yummy ice cream looking up at us with smiles and little chocolate faces…ah yeah, I will have to etch that one in the brain. Yet another was, washing/cleaning out the car with soaking wet kids loving every spray from the hose. I do love my little family, even though there are some really tough times for me and I feel really over-whelmed, I need to relish in the times that smiles grace my face and not frustration.
We went on a hike near town. We had gone earlier this year in March when we were having amazing weather and my has it changed. Completely covered in green canopy and lovely ferns now. The kids enjoyed hopping along the path and I enjoyed stopping now and then for a snap. Below is one of them, I really liked how the composition came out not to mention that cool mushroom.
On one of our wagon walks this week I found this beautiful Calla Lilly and I was struck with the leaves. The light coming from behind helped accentuate the spots and I found myself snapping away. I added a little texture to the photo because I thought it added a little…could be wrong though, jury is still out for me.f/1.8 ss1/40 ISO100 35mm
We headed to the Iowa River for a few hours this weekend. I did not take my camera…I shudder to think what I would do if I had a mishap So here is a shot with my phone of the little miss with her daddy enjoying herself in the sand. The camera phone sure is nice to have peace of mind when wanting to snap in less than ideal places for your pricey DSLR camera and lenses
Happy week everyone!
