Rainy days

Do I ever hate this time of year.  The dreary weather is really getting to me these days.  The long days stuck indoors is driving me bonkers.  I'm running out of things to keep the kids occupied.  I definitely think the friends of ours who decided to pack up and move to Costa Rica for a year had the right idea. 

The bright side is that with each passing, dreary day we're getting ever so much closer to our trip to Mexico.. omg I just want to wake up and be there... this is how we passed some time on Saturday while it poured outside.. just playing around inside on a rainy day.

And then finally the sun came out so we headed down to the beach...of course she had to bring her

So the gadget addict in my life, my loving dh, gifted me with an iPhone recently... and I have to admit it's changed my life....I'm officially addicted.  Since then, I've discovered the world of iPhoneography.  There are entire flickr groups dedicated to photos taken with the iPhone...and the post-processing apps available for this thing are endless.  While I can't really say I'm in love with the quality or clarity of the photos taken with the iPhone, there is something about it that reminds me of the instamatic cameras of my childhood.  And unlike my heavy DSLR, the iPhone is always with me... and as Chase Jarvis says, "the best camera is the one you have with you"... here's a recent sampling.

Project 365: Week 3

Well I'm into week 3 of my Project 365 2010 and I haven't packed it in that's good.  I wasn't prepared for how difficult this project was going to be.  But I'm dedicated to it...not necessarily as a photography project but more as a way to document our lives over the next twelve months.  My good friend and fellow photog Krysta passed along a great tip today on how to display photos from my 365 project.  Thanks to the beauty of Flickr and Big Huge Labs I was able to create a mosiac for the past 9 days that links back to my photostream.  I'll try to do this often as I go along.

These kids of mine..

...I love them.. and I love that they love each other...

Today we made "potions", went for a walk,  played at the park and cuddled up to a movie.  Just another Saturday.  Saturdays rock.

Look out Shamrocks.. he comes.  Look what my boy and his dad came home from school with today. He couldn't wait to try the ensemble on for me.  The most exciting part for C is that the shoulder pads have "Warrior" splashed across them.  I have a feeling this is going to be "the" sport for him.  After all, it's in his blood...

Well I'm at it again.  Project 365 take II.  I thought the new year would be a logical time to attempt this project again.  This time I'm going to focus on taking pictures that best represent the events of the day so hopefully I will have a wonderful record of our lives at the end of 2010. 

Today it rained... it poured.  A perfect day for ants on a log.  This is my son's absolute favourite.  The photo was taken with my new 50mm f1.4 lens.  I'm in love.

My new addition

Look what came in the mail this week!  I finally received my B & H gift card from Pioneer Woman and I just had to get this baby.  I already have the f1.8 and it stays on my camera 90% of the time.  But this lens is even more incredibly sharp and I hear the "bokeh is beautifully creamy"...not sure what that means but I can't wait to find out!
