365 Project Week 27

I think I'm getting pretty close to the half-way point in this project...thank goodness! Need to figure out exactly where half of 365 is... So here are a few more from July, and hopefully I can get back to being caught up soon!

We went to our first Indians baseball game with a group of our friends. It was a lot of fun (even though I doubt I saw a minute of the game!) We sat in the lawn area, so the kids had a lot of area to run and throw their balls around. We gave them some cotton candy and tried to get a picture of the "big kids" and this was the best I got! In all the others, someone is blurry from moving...image that with 6 toddlers...

My friend Kelly snapped this one of us that I really love! She is doing our family pictures this month too, so I'm excited!

I'm getting frustrated with my camera a lot these days, so this was a shot where I was trying to force my camera to take a shot in low light. I liked it even though it was grainy.

Tuesday after work I stopped at a pretty nature preserve I'd always wanted to check out. I took some flower shots and just walked around. I think it has great evening light so I'm hoping to go back and do a real shoot there sometime. Flower shots are still strangely hard for me to get quite right...

Wednesday we went to the park with friends. This is Ian, one cool dude going down the slide. And Henry is riding the ram/lion (we can't decide what it looks more like.)

Thursday was our first (and still only) pool day of the summer. My mom's neighborhood has a pool with a baby pool, and we had it all to ourselves! Now if it would just get hot enough, we might try and go back again...

Friday we had our first snow cones at our house! I wanted a snow cone machine for the boys' birthday party this year, so I caved and bought a small one and the syrup at Target (it was on sale!) The boys love ice anyway, so sugary blue ice is even better!!

And yes, this is the next day. Enjoying another snow cone outside. Not too creative, but still cute. And Alex did put the machine away after that, so they aren't having one every day anymore. :)
