I used my Sony DSC-TX1 point and shoot for all of the pictures (except the one in the pool). I used PSE actions from Pioneer Woman for most of the pictures, although for a few I did my own manual post-processing.
Summer is the boys having fun and playing outside in the evenings.
Splashin' in the pool.
I love the way the fountain in the courtyard is angled to line up with the windows on both sides.
Grilling is a big part of our summer and always on the 4th.
It doesn't matter the season, for me a glass of wine in the backyard watching the sun goes down is perfect any time of year.
A view I haven't noticed much lately that was one of my favorites when we moved to our house 5 years ago. Looking down our street at the lake from our hallway windows.
This starfish was hanging out on the side of the aquarium. I thought the colors of its belly were splendid.
The prompt for today led me to photograph these shells I have had for years. I had collected most of them as a kid. I have had them in one of my bathrooms at each home we have lived in for years. I see them every morning when I get ready, but haven't thought much about them in years. Yet, every time I update the bathrooms I always hang on to this bit of my childhood.
These textured balls are on display in my entry way. Love the different textures and sizes.
A scene I don't want to forget. Nicholas and Jackson pillow fighting in the family room. I heard them this morning giggling and playing while I was checking my e-mail I snuck up on them and found this. I know they will be teenagers in a blink of the eye, so I want to enjoy the toddler rough housing while it lasts.
