The Picture of Summer

Posted by Jen on June 24, 2009 in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of..., Photography |

PhotobucketAhhh … summer is here and has found its way into the You Capture carnival! This week we were all challenged to capture the season of sun and fun.

Summer in our neck of the woods is hot. There are no two ways about it. It’s our least favorite season. It’s just too stinkin’ hot to do much of anything outside.

For the computer nerds in my family (uh, that would be me), it’s not really a huge deal. For the outdoor addicts in my family (yep, that would be everyone else), it’s a very long stretch.

So, all week I’ve been thinking of how to capture “hotter than sin” on film and even thinking about it made me hot. Blech.

I asked Little Man what he thought about when he thought about summer. He just giggled and then asked me when fall was going to get here. [OK, I may have taken creative license on the timing of those reactions, but...]

Like most weeks, the pictures planned in my head didn’t make it into the camera.

Some of my shots worked pretty well, I thought.


this great pitcher of sangria was just screaming summer to me

But, then, I got stuck. I carried my camera around for days … nothing!

Today, with no additional pictures to add, I figured out why! My “pictures” of summer were captured last weekend … by Husband [OK, mostly.]!!!

So, I’m cheating a little bit – wait, let’s call it a guest post. Na, it’s cheating.  [I was going to make a bad joke about us living in a community property state ... thus sort of making all of these mine ... but decided against it.] But these two were having such fun and they are so cute that it’s really worth it! So, I’ll start with one I took.


bk has slurped up an insane amount of water from this pump

OK … let the fun begin! These are Husband’s!

One of the only ways to be outside in the summer here is to be in the water. And, what better way to be in the water than to slip and slide! These pictures are just, well, summer.


little man in an action shot ... he's really good at this!


when you're too small to slide ... crawl!!!


one of our favs ... both kids having fun together in their own way

This is what summer should be about, don’t you think?

By the way, Husband is a lurker so if you like these, let him know!!! Thanks!!!

I'll be hoppin' along now ...

A Father is Born

Posted by Jen on June 20, 2009 in Family, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of..., Wonder(ful) |

I’ve been looking at this blank page for more than a few minutes trying to decide just which words to use. Trying to craft just the right message to covey just how cool it is to watch the birth of a father. I’m struggling. I want to get this right. When Husband and I decided […]

Emotions in Motion

Posted by Jen on June 17, 2009 in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of..., Photography, Wonder(ful) |

This time of year produces a rollercoaster of emotions for me. If I didn’t know better – if I didn’t know the root cause [CRAZY work schedule] – I would probably be a great candidate for therapy. [LOL ... please know that I'm not claiming sanity here. I might be a good candidate anyway!] So, […]

Am I a Twit?

Posted by Jen on June 14, 2009 in Mommyhood, Online and Lovin' It! |

Being a parent is always interesting. I can hear the collective *sigh* as you process that nugget of wisdom. Yep, I’m master of the obvious. I know, right? I may have mentioned before that Little Man talks almost non-stop and that listening to him can be very entertaining and enlightening.  He’s told me more than […]

I Capture, You Capture

Posted by Jen on June 10, 2009 in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of..., Photography |

I’ve been meaning to participate in the You Capture challenges/carnival Beth’s got going over at I Should Be Folding Laundry for a while now. I mean well. I just never have managed to do it! [My self-talk is now taunting me thank-you-very-much.] This week the challenge was “nature” and I was mulling it around and […]
