My honey and me
As I mentioned earlier I'm doing a big feature on one of the walls in our family room. 12 frames each with a photo of the boys at the beach. Originally I was going to do the arrangement a little differently and planned on 10 frames. I changed my mind to 12, so had to add another two photos. I still had plenty of the boys, but as I was discussing it with a friend she mentioned that there really should be a photo of Brett and I in there. So today, despite the freezing weather I manged to get the boys (all three of them) in the car and we headed down to Mt Martha beach cos you can drive right up to the beach, so we could leave the boys in the car while we quickly took two photos with the camera timer and tripod. As we got there I was setting everything up and realised that I didn't have the attachment that connects the camera to the tripod. There was no way we were going home cos I knew I'd never get everyone back there again. So I decided Liam had to be my helper. Didn't he do a brilliant job! I just made sure I had the camera set to f22, that keeps everything in focus, foreground and background, but if he happended to focus on the water, not us, we'd still be in focus. Think I have myself a little apprentice.
Then this one I snaped as we were heading back. Liam was a bit disapointed that we were going so soon, he had his pants rolled up ready for a play! It is FREEZING! Brett was playing with him, saying he'd throw him in the water and Liam was laughing his head off.
Then this is a little layout I had planned, but managed to do today. Before we went to the beach all the boys fell asleep. I'd done lots of housework earlier so thought I deserved to scrap a little :) These are Wild Asparagus pp, the last mm tag from the pack, and some other bits and pieces I've had lying around.
Our deck was supposed to start today. Only the marking out. Brett is on holidays this week, so he was hoping to get quite a bit done on it. But it rained too much so they couldn't do it. Oh well, what's another weekend when I've waited two years so far.
Hope your weekend was good.
