Pet Week from I Heart Faces

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is "Pets".  (It doesn't have to be your actual pets.)  So I pass by this red barn by our house all the time and something about it always catches my attention.  I finally couldn't resist stopping to take pictures.  It was so nice that when I decided to stop that the horse actually posed for me.  :-)

Photo Shoot with Miss L

Today I got the opportunity to do a photo shoot with Miss L.   It was so different to take pictures of a 7 year old instead of two toddlers.  She actually stood still and smiled pretty for the camera.  And I wasn't chasing after her as she was running away laughing.  It was amazing!  So much fun!  :-)

We met Miss L and her aunt this morning at the park.  And while her aunt entertained my kids I got a chance to take pictures.  Here are some of my favorites.

After Miss L and I took pictures for a while, we all stopped and had donuts.  And I was able to capture a few more pictures of her with her aunt.  I think they look so sweet together!

And of course not to worry a good time was had by all.   Miss L was great at entertaining my kids too!  :-)

I think we may have to go back to this park and play some more some time.  Thank you so much Miss L for letting me take your picture today!!


Linking up to this week's  "You Capture" challenge.  This was my not so ordinary moments in an ordinary day.

Beautiful Eyes

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is "Beautiful Eyes".  And I know I'm biased but I think her eyes are absolutely stunning!

Happiness in the Heat

It's been so hot here this summer that I've taken a break from taking pictures - mainly because I enjoy taking pictures outside with good lighting.  So today I decided to break out my light scoop and practice some indoor pictures.  I was so glad I did.  The kids were having so much fun. 

It was too hot to play outside, so instead the kids snuggled in our bed.  (It looks so sweet and it is but she wasn't really snuggling as much as she was "getting" him.)  :-)

Another favorite indoor activity for now is sitting in the chair.  I don't let them get in these chairs too often because I'm afraid they will fall if I'm not hovering over them.  :-)  So I'm sure it makes it extra fun whenever Daddy lets them get in it.

We also finally decided to get the kids a water table to play with to help with all of the heat.  They love splashing in it and climbing in it.  If you look closely at this picture you can tell she is dripping wet from her hair and chin.  :-) 

(Also if you notice the babies are in their diapers in all of the pictures.  They had already played in the water table once by the time I decided to grab my camera.  They were dripping wet when they came in so we had to take their clothes off to dry.)  


This week's You Capture challenge is Happiness.  I thought it would be a good time to start linking back up.  :-)
