Holding onto summer as long as I can....I LOVE fall and everything that comes with it - but I'm not ready to let go of summer quite yet.

It almost looks like I just created this in photoshop but I promise, its a real picture of the moon. Boring but I wanted to remember the moon this *early* morning (took it after we got home from Lagoon) was really awesome.

LAGOON Day!!! We got to go for my work's discounted day this summer and we had a blast! Jason was a trooper the whole day and we got to go with some other family and friends so everyone got a chance to ride everything they wanted to. Lily loved everything and I couldn't believe how brave she was. I was really impressed that she was able to make it through the entire day without much whining and NO NAP! Her favorite ride was Tidal Wave (just like her mama) and she was even tall enough for the new roller coaster Bombora. I am itching to go back...we still have a few days to "bounce back"! So maybe more "The Lagoon" pics soon? I hope so!

Not perfect - but an attempt at capturing a "stop motion" shot. Its amazing how it works when you know what you're doing with your machine!

Had a FANTASTIC opportunity to go to a photography class tonight taught by a local photo studio - everything was incredibly cool. The presentation was very VERY helpful and I'm going to break out of my box and shoot manual more often - I keep telling myself, the more I try to shoot in manual, the more easy it will become. Right now I feel like I have to solve a very complex algebraic equation in order to take one simple shot. :)

1600 ISO

The studio was really pretty dark - I was impressed with how this picture turned out without flash. See! Already learning!

Hair that I parted with today. Sayonara!

Took her a good 5 minutes longer than everyone else at the party to get this baby popped.

My niece's daughter - gorgeous child - and so much like her mama. :)

Oh - she acts like SHE'S the one who has to wait when its time to go. Funny.

I hatched a plan today for a halloween costume based on an idea I saw online. Lady wants $180. Not sure mine will turn out as great - but goodness, its a COSTUME!

That sewing bug bit harder than I thought I did...still scratching the itch.

August 1, 2011

Well I'm done with 1/3 the year - nothing terribly exciting - but documented just the same. :) This brought me particular happiness this week - being able to hang clothes to dry means my dryer doesn't have to work as hard and Jason's shirts stay 2XL. What? You don't shrink clothes?
