BBQ fun!

Another post full of pictures. Because really, I love to take pictures of the kids playing with Daddy, and see their fun expressions when I pull out the camera!

The other night we had a BBQ our in the back yard. It was nice to get out of the house for a bit. Dad has been cooped up so much lately after his surgery, that fresh air was nice for a change.

Oh, and I bought a horseshoe game at target in their dollar section. So fun to teach the kids how to play...or at least pretend to play!

Then we decided to have some races. Gracie was such a good girl and never complained that she always got beat. Even though we tried cheating a ton of times, to help her win. Will's just too smart for us!

So Sean tried to run with her. Well, sick little (and yes, I mean little. The man has lost over 15 lbs in a week!) him couldn't make it too far. And he got yelled at by me, because she was well over his 5lb lifting limit.

And we learned that these are NOT racing shorts. Because he started off fine, then looked funny running back. When he got to me, he turned around and I realized him shorts were down to his thighs!!! Silly boy

New Camera

So I got a new camera in November. And I have been getting good at taking pictures. I mean, I use the thing almost daily to take pictures for my other blog Our Thrifty Ideas. But yesterday I realized that I have this great piece of equipment and I am not using it for what’s most important; documenting my life to it’s fullest.
I take pictures with my phone, constantly. And my kids definitely are great at being in front of the camera. But the pictures that I take are definitely not “put on the wall” worthy. The quality isn’t great, and they are on my phone so the lighting and bokah etc are not what they could be.
So I have set a challenge for myself to take pictures of my kids on a daily (well maybe every other day) basis and document them. Whether here on the blog (yes, I’m gonna try to get better at posting here) or even just having them in a digital book for when the kids are older.

So here’s my start.
Last night we had cupcakes for dessert. Gracie kept yelling and Sean and I saying “So delicious, yum”! It was so cute to hear, then we looked at her.
It’s a good thing that we took her dress off before giving her the cupcake. Because it really got messy!

Hopefully I can get better at sharing the pictures here on the blog. Because let’s admit it; these kids deserve all the screen time they can get!
