Family Fisheye Fun

It’s always nice to be able to spend some quality time playing with the whole family outside.  Since I try not to smother everyone around me with pictures, I only bring the “good camera” out every now and then.  Most of the time, I will snap a few with the point & shoot, if they let me that is!  They definitely get tired of BOTH of my cameras!   Since I had the fisheye on the camera from a session I did earlier this day, I figured I would take advantage and make them take pictures. Luckily, I seemed to stay out of their way and they didn’t mind me much!

Of course, Makena was ready to go…. she is always up for some posing action.

We all had some fun with the hoola hoops hubby bought the kids.  Since Joe doesn’t hoola hoop (I’m convinced he can, but just won’t show us), he showed Makena his one and only trick.  They both had a good time going back and forth with each other!

Fisheye fun wouldn’t be fun without some funny faces right?

Not only can I hoola hoop with the pros, I also went old school and showed the kids another use!  Notice how my son was totally uninterested in my skills?  At least I can count on my five year old for a few more years I hope!

Blake was clearly more interested in finding a trick of his own… not sure if it ever landed around him though.

Alas, I finally sucked him in though!  He’s still not too cool to jump with his ole mom:)

I always love being able to share a few personal moments here and there.  I don’t get to do it too often unfortunately, but hopefully once things settle down with the shooting & design schedule, I will be able to take more “personal” time to blog and post!

This was very touching. All that was missing was a refreshing glass of lemonade. Somehow, this just feels like the Americana everyone keeps looking for.

God Bless.

Here’s a bit of one of my favorite book excerpts: “Any cultivated woman may for herself invent (if it is to be called invention) something better worth working than is to be bought ready to work. And that may do for many purposes, so long as it does not claim to be more than it is; but in the case of really important work, to be executed at considerable cost not only of material, but of patient labour, surely it is worth giving serious thought to its design. The scant consideration commonly given to it shows how little the worker is in earnest. Or has she thought? And is she persuaded that her artless spray of flowers, or the ironed-off pattern she has bought, is all that art could be? It would be rude to tell her she was wasting silk! How should she know?The only way of knowing is to study, to look at good work, old work by preference; it is worth no one’s while to praise that unduly. And if in all that is now so readily accessible she finds nothing to admire, nothing which appeals to her, nothing which inspires her, then her case is hopeless. If, on the other hand, she finds only so much as one style of work sympathetic to her, studies that, lets its spirit sink into her, tries to do something worthy of it, then she is on the right road. Measure yourself with the best, not with the common run of work; and if that should put you out of conceit with your own work, no great harm is done; sooner or later you have got to come to a modest opinion of yourself, if ever you are to do even moderate things.”from Art in Needlework, by Lewis F. Day and Mary Buckle
