Yep, here are just some snaps I’ve taken the last week or so… Sometimes I don’t want to piddle around with my settings (because it’s just a snapshot opportunity) so I just stick my camera in auto and snap a few. So here’s just a little bit of what we’ve been doing lately!
Splash Park… We are loving the Splash Park. Anyone with more than one child can appreciate a place like this… A lot of times I take the kids of here mid-week by myself and I don’t have to be on pins and needles worried that I’m going to lose track of one of them. Caleb even loves it! He usually hangs in his stroller for a little bit and then I let him crawl around. No pics of him crawling around though since I have to be right by him and don’t want the trusty camera getting wet! These actually are taken in manual mode though!
Next, one day we rode with my mom and met my aunt and her little girl at the mall. The kids were chomping at the bit all day to play, so we finally resorted to letting them play. A couple of these pics are bad! Another reason I can’t stand auto… Doesn’t the camera know when there is too much sun to dial it down more? Oh well… The kids are a little bright in these but it’s all in fun!
Then we’ve got 4th of July. I didn’t really take any pics on the 4th until I realized that Haidyn was doing the sparklers in the same dress I have Maddie doing them in at the same age. So I had to snap a few. It was pitch black, but the little pop-up flash did it’s job that night. Usually I’m hating that thing, but it was necessary!
FOUND IT… Here is the shot of Maddie I was talking about… Taken with my old P&S, but nonetheless… Maddie in the same dress at 3.5 playing with a sparkler for the first time! Would you believe that at 6.5 she was too scared to do one?!
Last, just a snap at how I found the boy the other day. Man, oh man! He’s also learning to climb. Yes, you read that right! CLIMB! No pics to document it yet, but whenever he sees something small enough to get on, he will climb up on it. I am not ready for this BOY STUFF!
This summer has definitely been a busy one! I thought we’d be twiddling our thumbs trying to stay busy, but I’m actually looking forward to down time. Whenever that will be!
