Selfies of me and the girls at Saltgrass on Mother’s Day…
It was a 45 minute wait at 3 p.m. I had to keep the girls entertained some how!
We have a gas fire pit in the backyard and the girls favorite summertime treat (besides popsicles) is s’mores. We either make the traditional version with Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, and Hersey Bars…or we make these:
I am thinking we may need to try something new. Something exciting. Something different. The girls are traditionalist. Me, I need experimentation.
Do you need to try something new this summer? Check out my Pinterest S’mores Love Board.
I am really liking the S’mores Buffet for our next barbeque; and the S’mores Bars (no fire required).
Ooooh, what about smearing the new Mocha Cappuccino spread from Jif on Graham Crackers and smashing a gooey marshmallow in the middle? Just thinking… ♥
Running in the backyard sprinklers is a fun and easy way to take a break from the summer heat. The dog even gets involved!
Shake it off!
Give my kids a hose, a closed storm door, let them “spray” each other, and I have at least 20 minutes of non-fighting-quite-time…if I am lucky! And, the storm door protects my camera.
I’ve been reading Tom Ang’s Digital Photography Masterclass. It’s has been very helpful. I really like the “assignments” after each chapter so that I can go out an practice what I just read. These photos would be filed under “catching the moment”. You gotta work fast when photographing kids!
Here’s a great little inspiration to keep the kids busy this summer…Badges of Fun from Disney’s Family Fun. There you can print out a badge chart, then just go outside and complete one of the suggested activities or adventures to earn a badge. This month we chose rock painting. Using outdoor acrylic paint, we spruced up our front yard garden area with these beautifully painted decorations.
