Day 60

Day 1 in Austin. There were several of these funky guitars in the middle of the sidewalk. I thought they were pretty cool!

I also thought this clock was pretty cool.
Then at the BBQ place we went to there was this creepy boar's head on the wall. Very appetizing!

Day 59

Taken on my new blackberry storm early in the morning!

Day 58

video

Just a video today. I got my new blackberry storm and I finally have video capabilities on my phone and boy is it fun! Check out the girls dancing, or actually just spinning fast together and singing some song really loudly. It looks like "Ring around the rosie". When the girls are so happy together like this it really makes me happy. It's a mother's dream to watch their kids play as friends!

A sign of spring, geese on our OPEN pond!
And the eerie night sky. The clouds were so dark with some light sky behind it!

Day 52


I couldn't decide which picture I loved more. I got a new set of Actions from MCP Actions, called Urban Cover Model. I just love the finished product when I am using these. I also added a set here in case you want to see more samples! They are the first 8 in my photostream.

Day 51

Our volcano! The kids loved this! Oh, and I thought it was pretty darn fun too!

Day 49


Blah. That is what it looks like in back yard, brown and wet and just BLAH.

Day 38

Bianca was being naughty. I kept asking her to sit her booty on her chair and her response was, "no mommy, my hanging!". Little turd!

Day 37

So I have 4 pictures for day 37. Every night we play and hang out in our bedroom. Meaning, there are 2 adults, 3 children and usually 2 dogs crammed into our master bedroom. It's fun though.

Here's Sarge lounging on our bed.Brian was super excited about me taking his picture.
So was Annika.
And my favorite, Annika being like mommy! She got such a kick out of this!
All the pictures are pretty terrible, but I love them anyway. They are super grainy from the low light and the picture of Annika has a huge flash shadow.

Day 36

The night sky last night. There was one star in the sky and the sky looked very purple. I thought it looked cool. I had to up the ISO to 800 so the picture has a lot of noise. But, I kind of like the effect it gives.

Day 35

This kid will put anything in his mouth. Goofball!

Day 34

Bennett has mastered walking and is quickly learning to maneuver turning and such. It's the cutest thing to watch him walk, it looks like he's been on a horse for days, and he usually has his hands in the air. Funny kid!

Day 33

So I didn't take any pictures of my kids yesterday, ok I did but they were kind of crappy and I had to use the flash since the lighting was sooooo low. But, I did take some fun pictures of my oldest friend Molly and her cute little preggo belly. She was such a good sport and very patient with me while I was trying to get the creative juices flowing. This is one of my favorites. Her belly is so delicate yet she's wearing her rugged boots, mittens and coat. It's so Molly and I love it.

I just used curves to deepen the color and I may have ran TRA "Oh Snap" at like 20% opacity, but I can't remember.
