Continuing on with the butterfly identification, Marian finally spotted and captured a monarch with Issy’s help . . .
I called Kelly after a Saturday morning shoot and he was just raving about this farm market he took the kids to, it was so good, I needed to come.
I can’t say that I normally bring my camera to the market, but I had it with me the the produce was just incredibly beautiful:)
Doesn’t this make you want summer back right now!
The kids weren’t quite as enamored as we were;)
Not sure how this happened but Caleb (our neighbor) was over and Norma came by to drop off some goodies, she does this a lot but usually we’re not home. We started talking and her Caleb got out of the car, they played badminton in the front for a bit and next thing you know they were in the backyard with a baseball game going (actually whiffle ball which Caleb’s dad taught Ezra & Tobin to play-not our neighbor Caleb our “camp” friends Caleb).
I loved it, and wish it happened more often!
I was doing a shoot for my friend Monica (the one who got my business started!), we combined a visit with the kids-they are close in age. After the shoot we went on a hike (to get some shots deeper in the woods that I never get to take with clients because it’s too far).
Ez & Nolan got pretty far ahead of us throwing the football around
The funniest part, we got to the bridge and there were the boys waiting for us. I said “good, I wanted to get a couple shots here”. I hear Ezra say to Nolan “I told you she was going to want pictures here”. Oh, we laughed:)
just the boys
and just the girls
Seems nice of my kids to wear blue to coordinate with them;)
Just in case you think I’m completely ridiculous, it wasn’t on purpose!
Way back in the summer, we celebrate a special day for each child before they head back to school (thanks to Mary for this idea many years ago).
First up was Ezra . . .
We started out with some twister
made a crown and had pizza for lunch
had to have some sports-volleyball & badminton
and, then to the pool for a swim and ice cream treat
