What a Beautiful Day!

Today was a BEAUTIFUL spring day... in January! 

Grayson, Gordo and I spent a lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine. 

It got warm, fast!! We decided to change out the turtleneck for a short sleeved shirt... much better!

Shutter Speed

I was working through the Two Peas Photography Course again today and took two photos where I altered the shutter speed. The second one turned out really cool...

Kind of slow shutter speed

Fast Shutter Speed

My Tuesday night photography workshop has been really fun, but I've actually found this online course to be more beneficial... That may be because it is written for true beginners to DSLR photography (you know instructions like "find the blue button and press it"). In any case, I've enjoyed learning more about photography.

We Have a Fence!


Ten Cute Photos

I've become one of those mothers...

You know the kind. 

The kind who think their kid is so awesome that they show you ten photos of the kid wearing the same outfit, in the same position... 

I'm that kind of mother now. 

Presenting: "Ten Cute Photos"

Reading his Blues Clues book...

This Smile

Is from a boy who LOVES to be outside!!!! 

Grayson and I played outside for about an hour when we got home from school today. He LOVES being outside and constantly goes to the door saying "owsigh?".  Here are some others photos:

This is what happened when I told him that we were going inside to start dinner...

Scary and Cool

I was playing around with shutter speed on my camera this evening, and I discovered I could make my camera's shutter speed go anywhere from 1/4000th of a second to 30 seconds... I had to see what 30 seconds looked like... here is what I got:

Gordo as a ghost... awesome!

Will's Fourth Birthday!

Four years ago (actually January 2nd, 2007) a sweet little guy named William Prescott Crutchlow was born. Today we celebrated at a cute little family farm. It was so much fun!!!

By the way, while I was uploading these photos, Blogger told me that I was out of space and had to pay for extra storage. I only picked the $5 option... how long will that last me, fellow bloggers??

Grayson visited the goats, and he LOVED them!! 

Could you slow down on the growing up stuff?!? Please!! :)

Cousin Will, Grayson, and Uncle Larry

Grayson kept saying, "HEY" to the chickens!

He really did brush this donkey!


Love that smile!!

Birthday Boy Will

Grayson got to ride the pony, too!

He smiled the entire time.
BUT... he was sure to keep his eye on his Mommy.

Grayson and Nana

Will enjoyed some roasted marshmallows. 

Grayson and JuJu

Both pictures were so good... I couldn't decide which to choose, so I chose BOTH! :)
