My Week(161) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

Did lots of things. Am tired. Kids are tired. Zzzzzzzzzz.

Monday:

LOOK MY POPCORN CAUGHT FIRE. GET IT?

Trip #1 to the grocery store. We did buy cookies. We forgot a turkey.

Visiting their lobster friends. That’s what they call them. I don’t have the heart to explain those aren’t the same lobsters as last week.

Monday:

It was freezing on the pier but the sun (and all the happiness) warmed my cold heart.

My TV babysitter earned her paycheck this week.

Go buy this book. HILARIOUS.

Real street fashion: scuffed boots and yoga pants.

Evan loves his Duplos and Caroline loves creepy naked dolls

I don’t know how she doesn’t have nightmares.

RUN AND GET A TURKEY BEFORE THEY ARE GONE, SLACKER

NO REALLY IT’S JUST CIDER I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE HE LEARNED THAT.

Thankful

Instead of shopping, we visited our favorite places.

Hot cocoa and a lollipop = best day ever

Watching the town tree lighting

Saturday:

They FINALLY built a playground at the zoo!

Those are yesterday’s lollipops they brought to the parade

Processed with VSCOcam

Our local parade is adorable, if not very fancy.

Considering it was only 30 degrees all week, we spent a TON of time outside. My kids don’t care. They were born in New England*. Today Caroline took off her jacket and her hoodie and ran around in just a shirt.  But despite the temps we had a really great week.

Now I am throwing myself FULL FORCE into Caroline’s birthday party. Luckily “princess” isn’t the most original theme, so just grabbing pink or sparkly or sparkly pink stuff is pretty easy. I just need to get my house in order so I can start putting things up before I buy yet another princess tent and realize I don’t have anywhere to put FOUR of them. Tomorrow I’m going to let her pick out the ugliest, most ridiculous princess cake we can find to order from ShopRite. I’m so excited.

*This logic fails since I was born in Massachusetts and I’m freezing.

My Week(147) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

My pictures this week are all blurry, of people’s back, or of nothing interesting. It’s actually a terrible representation of our week – we did a lot of stuff!! – but the more I have my big camera in my hands the less I use my phone. My poor Instagram feed is sadly neglected. Maybe some day I’ll find a balance.

Sunday:

sunday1

A rare Suzanne sighting IN one of my pictures.

sunday2

Couch naps at the lake – sleeping like a baby.

sunday3

Oh, it’s cold and cloudy? NO1CURR. We want to swim.

Monday:

monday1

Evan decided mint chocolate chip is his favorite, which was totally my favorite as a kid too.

monday2

IT’S SO GOOD ONCE IT HITS YOUR LIPS.

monday3

Watching my kids play with my old toys in my old house is always weird.

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Jersey Plates: FISTPMP (I was stopped, traffic was terrible)

tuesday2

This is how she feels about cheeseburgers

tuesday3

The moon is far less impressive in this picture, but was very cool. You’ll just have to trust me.

Wednesday:

Wednesday1

Hands in her pockets.

wednesday2

Don’t let her face fool you, she luuuuuvs frozen yogurt.

wednesday3

An evening walk-run-roll in the grass

Thursday:

thursday1

For a kid who was having a TON OF FUN, that’s a pretty strong side-eye.

thursday2

MISSER TATO HEAD!!!

thursday3

Dancing at the winery – they fell down a lot for people who weren’t even drinking.

 Friday:

friday1

DRIVE THRU STARBUCKS DRIVE THRU STARBUCKS IN MY TOWN! And whatever this peach green tea lemonade thing is is delicious.

friday2

What are these candies shaped like rings?? What sorcery is this?!?!?!

friday3

Gorgeous night for a photo shoot at the beach.

Saturday:

saturday1

Princesses love strawberries for breakfast.

saturday2

As close as I get to a day off – letting them destroy the house and watch TV.

saturday3

Evening walk. Still in royal princess garb.

 This week is going to be crazy too (pictures, orientation, Evan’s first day of school ON A BUS!) but hopefully I can do a better job blogging than I did last week. My mother will be very sad if I quite posting pictures of her grandchildren because I’m taking pictures of other people.

Clark Farms 2012 – Our Everyday

Friday, October 26th, 2012

There isn’t exactly a shortage of scenic, fall-like locations in Connecticut, but sometimes you gotta escape to the Island. Rhode Island, that is. (Sidebar: trying explaining to a 3 year old why a place is called Rhode Island when a) it’s not an island and b) you don’t actually know WHY it’s called Rhode Island is hard). The Ocean State is pretty scenic too, especially if you’re a toddler who likes giant slides and goats. Then I highly recommend Clark Farms.

I’m taking a break-out session through Clickin Moms called Photographing Your Everyday and it’s sort of amazing. I was secretly hoping that just by READING really good advice on the internet my photography would somehow improve instantly. Oddly enough, it didn’t quite work like that and it’s going to take a lot of hands-on practice before I get better. But going into the day the intention of telling a story and a plan for how to do it definitely made a difference in my shooting.

Since we spent three full hours at the farm, it was kind of a long story.

Thanks to our friend Merin & her girls for inviting us and playing so nicely, even if the goats didn’t. I hope your kids crashed as hard as mine did last night, and you finally get to enjoy 9 hours of sleep.
