For family and friends: All in a day’s adventure

Two weeks ago we had an extra fun time outside. AND, I had my camera! Hooray!

Here are the pictures!

The girls love to carry things to the dumpster. They always turn them into marching band instruments. As soon as we get out of the stairwell, they begin to march and say, "Rat-a-tat, BOOM!"

On our way to the mailbox, we noticed a bunch of geese in the pond! How fun! We ran back to the house, got some bread and went back to feed them.

Just as our bread ran out, we heard the garbage truck! Can this day get any better? We ran back to the sidewalk to see if we could watch.

Have you ever heard of the "Embrace the Camera" challenge? This is our second attempt. The idea is for the mom to be in some of the pictures so the kids can see her with them when they look back at the pictures.

    1. Thanks! I have a Canon point and shoot. I’ll try to find the exact model and let you know. I do try to shoot in manual and have been playing around with settings and stuff. Unfortunately, the instruction manual is nowhere to be found so I’m really left to blind experimentation. = /
