Week 15

We went camping this weekend with our boys and some of our family.
Everyone had a lot of fun...

Carter and Zachary took a boat ride right before we had to leave.

A sampling of the pictures from Saturday camping. We woke up to a beautiful foggy lake view.

The kids got to explore, check out the river,
 (I didn't include the pictures of my sweet hubby jumping in to save our nephew Jack. Scary!!)
shoot some guns, do a lot of fishing and hang out at the fire until 3 am.
The adults actually got to enjoy fishing, watching the kids and RELAX!

Thanks to my dad for letting us camp on his land!

I just thought this picture of Ruby was funny.
We were all at Ingles waiting to leave for camping.
We took six cars for 15 people...Wow! 
We arrived at 9:30pm and set up camp in the dark...Fun!

It takes a lot of stuff to tent camp for two nights.

More pictures of the boys playing in the yard after school.

My driveway as a canvas.
This was how I found my boys when I got home from work. Carter, Wyatt and Harrison are in the background. Will helped too!

Week 14

Will loves his toys and this was a battle between Batman and Gronckle (a dragon from the movie we saw on Saturday)

We took Will to see "How to Train your Dragon"
It was a great movie. We had a great day relaxing too!

Daddy playing with Will on a beautiful Friday night.
Wyatt and Carter were gone to their Dad's house this weekend.

After a nice run, I loved sitting on the porch and reading to Will.
Wyatt snapped this shot.

Our 4th of July rose is starting to bloom.

Lesson 2
This week I had to practice my aperture.
The top picture has a lower aperture to blur the background and the bottom picture has a higher aperture that keeps the background more focused.
This is my grandmother's marble bench that I now have outside my door with my boys favorite rock. (I think it came from grandma)
FYI - I am taking the Oh Shoot class at

Wyatt and Will goofing off on the front porch. Carter was sick most of the week with strep throat. So we will have to get photos of my Carter next week.

Weeks 12 & 13

What a beautiful Easter Sunday. My hubby had stay-cation last week. It is definately spring in GA!!

Our Family on Easter Sunday.
We had a beautiful Easter at the Branan's.

The fruits of our labor.
Carrie and I baked all day on Good Friday.

We found Will putting pajamas on Mr. Alligator before bed.
How adorable? Precious!

Our Sunday evening in the backyard playing ball.

Lesson 1 for my online photography class.
I learned how to adjust my shutter speed. The top picture has a slower shutter speed to show motion and the bottom picture has a faster shutter speed to freeze the motion.

Practice for my photography class.
I love this statue that is in front of our courthouse and right down the street from our home.

Playing with my camera.
Trying to blur out the background.
The only houseplant I haven't killed lately.

Practicing adjusting my shutter speed.
Carter was sweet enough to be my subject.

Carter loves to read and he even sneaks some reading in while waiting to leave for school.

My camellias.
