J watching the bigger kids play. We joked that he took his glove to the park today in hopes of getting drafted.

Bathtime Revisited

It's been a while since I posted bathtime pics of either of the kiddos. I love bathtime photos. Jayce decided to be all grown-up and stuff this evening and take a shower but that didn't stop me from pulling out the camera to get shots of Ms. M.

No more pictures please
ISO 100, ss 1/2000, f 2.5, 50mm lens

Yet another one from last Sunday. The light was beautiful that day and I took a ton of pictures.

I did take my camera with me tonight when we went to an ice cream shop but when I pulled it out to take pics of my messy-faced kids I realized the battery was still on the charger. Doh! Guess I'll just have to recreate those pics another night.

Light Play

Just a fun storyboard of the kids playing with a projector thingy at the mall. It shines on the floor and the kids' actions affect what's displayed, kind of like a human-powered video game.

Jayce in some very trampled bluebonnets. One of these years I'll learn that my kids have absolutely no interest in sitting in a bunch of flowers.

Dance Dance Baby
Maggie was watching the other kids at the arcade playing Dance Dance Revolution and she had to get in on the action.

A whole lotta golfing

We met up with friends for a bit of mini-golf tonight and boy was it fun. Four kids age 4 and under with golf clubs sounds like a recipe for disaster but surprisingly no one got hurt and everyone had a good time.

Sunset in her eyes

ISO 200, ss 1/800, f 2.8, 50mm lens
Trying my hand at a dramatic black & white conversion. This was taken this evening at the park close to our house.

This was taken over Easter weekend on the trip down to San Antonio. It was just too yucky to even pull my camera out today so I figure I'll post this bright, sunny one. This is Maggie saying bird in sign language - one of her favorite signs.

Bluebonnet Sunset
ISO 100, ss 1/80, f 2.8, 50mm lens
This was taken from the street that runs behind my house, just down from my neighborhood. Oh faithful 365 viewers, I am going to apologize in advance for the many, many sunset pictures you'll likely see here. Sometimes I just can't help myself.

Bright sunlight and harsh shadows made these rather difficult to capture but I just love the moment.

I took this of my son and his friend at the mall tonight. Our friends are moving away very shortly so I'm glad I caught this moment while I had the chance.

Jayce was not into sharing his toys today. And, yes, he is covered in dirt.

Coloring Eggs

These are from Saturday night. I haven't had much of a chance to take many pictures lately so here are some snapshots from our egg coloring fun.

ISO 200, ss 1/20, f 5.6, 24mm lens
The bluebonnets are blooming all across Texas right now. This is the view from my backyard. This picture was taken at dusk and just does not do justice to how beautiful the colors are.

**Sorry about the little break. I was visiting family for Easter and my laptop was not cooperating with my picture of the day goal. It didn't help that the weather wasn't really cooperating either. I'll try to post some pictures from the days I missed but I'm not making any promises.

There was a little girl, who had a little curl...

ISO 100, ss 1/640, f 1.8, 50mm lens
These were taken inside our little bounce house. I can't decide if I like the color or black & white more.

A bit obsessed...

These were taken by Richard this evening. It's a good thing I was inside making dinner because I'm pretty sure I would have freaked if I'd actually seen the ball being thrown anywhere near my camera.
