Fall is coming, oh my!

I know that Labor Day is the "unofficial" end of summer, but every year I try to squeeze every last ounce of summer out of the season. I wear white after Labor Day, and I refuse to take off my open toed shoes until the snow falls. Yup, I'm THAT kind of girl.

Si on the other hand hates summer and can't wait until fall. Fall to him signals the start of football, cooler weather, and no longer having to mow the grass (LOL).

This year we celebrated Labor Day by heading off to Memorial Park to try and get some pictures of the girls in their cute little sleeveless dresses next to some flowers before fall came and swept their beautiful blooms away.


Admittedly, Si was the one to snap some of the best pictures we got, but to cheer me up, he quickly reminded me that the reason the girls were smiling was because they could see me and were smiling at me, instead of me hiding behind the camera. =). So that made me feel better.

Here are some of the pictures we got. And I learned. . .photography is WAY harder than it looks! The first two rounds of pics that I took were in the direct sun and were shadowy and funky, and the third round was taken in the shade - perhaps not quite enough light? This is tricky I tell you! (Any photography buffs out there, please feel free to provide guidance...I'm learning as I go!)

I love that last picture! They seemed so much happier in the shade!

So what did you do on your long weekend???

Until next time -


  1. So cute! Bri is getting some cute hair! Kristen Duke ( has an ebook about photography that I've been meaning to buy. I need the tips too ;)

  2. Those are such adorable little angels! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new pic on top!

    We didn't do much for the long weekend...travelled back from our Vay-K and it's been hard getting back into the regular routine... :)

    Happy weekend!


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me!
