Just chillin'

Last month, I had to come home early to watch the kids. My mother-in-law, who watches them on Thursdays, was sick and couldn't make it. I don't like calling in sick or leaving work. Especially when I'm not the one who is sick (or my kids aren't the ones either). Regardless, I got to spend a nice afternoon with them. In fact, it was so nice, that I decided to have an impromptu picnic. We have some nice grassy areas around our apartment complex with a little creek and trees about. So, I brought out a blanket, some munchies, and kids. I let Tristan run around and explore on his own, while I sat with the girlie on the blanket. Natural light is my favorite when taking the kids pictures. I can set a fast shutter speed to freeze their movement and not feel like I'm compromising the focus and lighting.

These were a few shots I managed to get of them while having fun outdoors.

Impromptu picnic, how fun! Such cute kiddos!

About This Blog

My name is Mary and I'm a working mom with two beautiful children. I've worked for over seven years at a credit union, currently as an administrative assistant. Last fall, I went back to school and started on a Bachelors in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Elementary Education.

My hobbies, when I have time, include photography, sewing, photo processing, digital scrapbook, online gaming, reading, role playing games like DnD, and board games. But what I really love doing is just being a mom to my two children, Tristan and Melayna.

Tristan, whois four, is an awesome big brother and such an intelligent little boy. He loves Transformers, animals, Dr. Seuss books, and eating.

Melayna, who is one and a half, has definitely taught her momma patience. Unlike her easy going brother, she is curious and persistent. And if something stands in her way, she will definitely let you know her displeasure. Regardless, she is a sweetheart and daddy's little girl.
