Everyone has their idea of what Heaven looks like, and of all the places I've seen...this spot comes pretty close. Mr. M says it reminds him of The Shire. ;-)
Last weekend we had ourselves a little trip to the Wilderness Park by our house. The girls plopped down in this little field and started to pick flowers. We shot these with a regular old point and shoot camera (Canon PowerShot SX260) - and these are all straight out of the camera (SOOC - no Photoshop).
I did play around with cropping them a bit - I was trying to capture the beauty of the field and at the same time caputre the girls' expressions.
I think the top picture is my favorite - I might get it enlarged and put it on a canvas for their bedroom. I don't know where I'll hang it now with those enormous maps! Haha.
Here's a little imperfect pic of me with the girls. Not quite canvas-worthy, but it's real. :-)
Me and Paprika:
Reminds me of this photo from wayyy back when (2007):
Me and Ginger (who wanted to go play and not sit on my lap for a picture - haha):
Down by the ducks and the turtles with Mr. M and Baby Violet. Miss Violet was having SOOOO much fun feeding the fish and ducks (even though a lot of what she was feeding them ended up in the grass):
If you ever need a turtle, I know where to find one!:
More duck and fish feeding...
Last time we visited, a few ducks were nesting...and we came back and they were still nesting! Paprika had hoped to see some baby ducks - but not this time. The ducks were very territorial (as you might expect) - and so we stayed away. Here are the girls at the upper pond - learning about tadpoles. Paprika wanted to catch some and wait for them to grow into frogs. She says she wants to bring them to Nana Nancy in Indiana. ;-)
