Sunday in the park with George.

But really, it was Friday in the park with kids. But I decided to call this post that because its the name of one of my favorite desperate housewives episodes that I happened to see the other day, and the title seemed fitting, despite the minor changes ;)

So I had to babysit Friday, but before I left Jodi called and asked if I wanted to meet them at the park because the girls wanted to see me as well as play. Since I already had to babysit I gave a call to the mom of the other kids and asked if I could bring them and I got the go ahead, so I lugged those three kids to the park and spent time with five kids, all age seven and under. But I loved it, and I love all the kids, so it was awesome. Plus it gave me the opportunity to whip out my camera and take some pictures. And that's what I did when I wasn't chasing the two year old around.

I would love to show you all more of the pictures I took but I have yet to get permission to post pictures of the other kids. But I did get some cute ones of the girls and have the go ahead to use them!

What do you think? I would love to hear feedback, good or bad. Helps me improve my game ;)

Saturday I went and watched Mikayla play Tball. The poor thing always gets upset because she never gets any balls. But she does a good job hitting and made some wicked home runs. More on Mikaylas Tball and Taylor's coach pitch to come - as well as pictures of course!

Today was graduation Sunday at church. It was quite interesting - around here the school i go to and the school in the town i live in (they are both small towns and right next to each other) have a major rivalry. Like Michigan and Ohio state. Only for us its Indians vs Pirates. Well I live in Indian territory but I am a Pirate. All the grads today were Indians, and me the only Pirate. It was quite funny, all this purple and white then the loner in red. plus they were all really tall, and I, am not. So that made for quite the celebration. It was a lil hard because they all go to school together and then there was me, who remembers all of them from when I was littler but I haven't really been around any of 'em for a few years. So ya, that was that.

After that Whittney and I hung out for a bit, did a lil shopping, got wind burnt from riding in her mustang with the top down, and found some cool kids hats we liked...
Ha ha. we. are. goofy. But that's why we are such good friends.

That's all I got for today, I have been frequently shorted on time, that's why I have not been posting much. Schools almost out though, so that shouldn't be to much of a problem pretty soon!



  1. I can't wait to see more photos you have taken. I am still what you would call a beginner as far as photography goes. I really love the second picture you posted. I really like pictures where the subject isn't looking at you. I think the first one and the fifth one could be a little brighter on her face. For some reason it looks darker than the rest of the photo. But overall, I really like them. It looks like the girls were having a great time posing for you. Keep shooting, only time and practice can make you better. I try to take as many pictures as I can and each time I think I learn something new. Good luck!!

  2. You will make a great mommy some day! You are so great with kids and they just seem to love you! Let me know when you get your entry in at I heart Faces I can't wait to see what you enter!

  3. Those are some gorgeous photos! What sweet girls--and I like the ones you chose for the b&ws.
