Just another manic Monday

Kind of silent share

So we have a lot going on, I have a lot to catch you up on. But I feel bad that this site has kind of fallen to the side. I swear, it’s coming back! I love to post pictures with my commentary and for some reason I don’t have enough space to do that. Lol! So I’m working on updating and getting my other site up and running. I’ve actually had it for a few years now, just had it connected to this one. Because…. too much work. More on that later, for now. Enjoy this adorable photo of D-boy and mKK watching the girls play soccer this past weekend.

Happy Thursday Folks! Iiona

Just another Manic Monday…

Yesterday we went to a park and took pictures. I’m practicing my favorite meditative craft. I love capturing a moment to be able to look back at it later and remind me of the time we spent doing things that make us smile.

My goal was to get a family picture, but because of the location it was too windy for me to set my camera up on a tripod. Our kiddos are such good sports, they were starving and I kept asking to give me a few more minutes.

This guy right here… I love capturing all of the little details. Can you see the freckles? Miss Marie has freckles as well. At first I thought it was dirt spots, LOL! Don’t judge me. I wasn’t use to that type of thing…Β DSC_3900

I (slightly against my will) gave up the camera to be the subject. It was hard, but I did it anyways. LOL! DSC_3914

We then moved over to the bridge and Mouse realized that her shirt was perfect for catching air and acting as if she were flying.

Either way it goes, we got some pretty decent pictures. We enjoyed the nice weather and we smiled. And then I fell asleep on the couch before everyone and woke up with a banging headache. Le sigh…

Daddy/Daughter Dance

The girls and I were able to talk Isaac into going to the daddy/daughter dance yesterday. He is not one for certain situations, I blame that on his time in the military. But that is his story, not mines to tell…

The girls were very excited that he agreed to take them and so I got them all dressed and ready to go. As you can see by the looks on their faces they were very happy!

Anyways, pictures are worth a thousand words. So I will leave them for you to check out πŸ™‚

I’m on a camera kick lately

Leave a comment

So I’ve been on a camera kick lately. As in wanting to take tons of photos but not wanting to do anything with them. I just wanna play with my cameras. Is that too much to ask, lol!

So, I have a Nikon D5000 and absolutely LOVE it! But I feel I’ve outgrown it. Mainly I want some new glass (lens) and a new camera and I can only afford one or the other. Because I also need a new laptop & like most laptop snobs I only use MAC. It has all I need for photography and when I figure it out videography as well. I also want super awesome programs but they all cost an arm, one a leg as well.

So I’m stuck in this space of wanting new equipment and not being able to justify buying it. I thought we would have walls covered in photos. But it takes time and money to be able to print and hang the photos I want. As in I want poster size photos printed on canvas… Le sigh, the struggle of a mom-tographer!

So to kind of combat my want I got a lens for my iPhone… Hahaha! I can already hear the smart remarks about that. But seriously check out the photos I took with my new iPhone lens, they are amazing and awesome and cool! Lol!

I’ve also been taking pictures of the kiddos at their events (sports, dance, meets, competitions, etc) and out of the 500 photos I’ve taken about 20 of them are in focus and look good. So I need new glass to help with that. Which is also where’s want/need comes in. So I’ll save money, keep checking in on the price and the len and then eventually buy. I wanted one for Miss Marie’s state meet in Denton on November 8th but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Unless of course I find a donar or I run into a whole bunch of money, lol!

Anyways, enjoy your Sunday! We will be headed out soon for the kiddos to get their pictures taken at Picture People and maybe catch a family movie. Sometimes it’s fun to be baby-less on the weekends πŸ™‚

Thought I would add more pictures from our weekend away last month. I’m sure I have more on my DSLR, I’ll add those later.

This weekend we are on a spree to do a blackout on our summer bingo, I had to add a couple of free spaces (daddy insisted). So while Ike is paying to rent a paddle boat I’m updating the blog…
