 Parks April 2009

I started really getting into photography after my son was born. It’s become a fun hobby and I would like to improve and learn some new skills over the summer. I’m always on the lookout for seminars or workshops for amateur photographers, so let me know if you ever hear of one!  Right now, I just enjoy getting out and shooting and seeing what I come up with. My best buddy Leigh Ann turned me on to a really cool website full of giveaways and photo tips: She has some other categories as well, like cooking and homeschooling, but since I do neither of those I just focus on her photo stuff. Ree’s funny and laid back and non-intimidating-my fav things in a woman!  I’m very lucky that my dude Parks loves getting his picture taken, so he’s a very willing subject. Here are some photos of my little wildflower being silly in the wild bluebonnets.

By the way Happy Mother’s Day to you mom’s out there! I count everyone who’s ever held something under their wing, even you doggie moms!

Here are some  blogs I try to keep up with of other moms I truly love! (I’m sure I’m forgetting some, please forgive me!)

Walk Slowly,Live Wildly


 Gotta love some Tracy Chapman when you just feel the need to stop pretending that everything our lives  is perfect.  I’ll just keep it real and  let her do the talking ………..

All you folks think you own my life
But you never made any sacrifice
Demons they are on my trail
I’m standing at the crossroads of hell
I look to the left I look to the right
There’s hands that grab me on every side

All you folks think I got my price
At which I’ll sell all that is mine
You think money rules when all else fails
Go sell your soul and keep your shell
I’m trying to protect what I keep inside
All the reasons why I live my life

Some say the devil be a mystical thing
I say the devil he a walking man
He a fool he a liar conjurer and a thief
He try to tell you what you need
Try to tell you what you need

Standing at the point
The road it cross you down
What is at your back
Which way do you turn
Who will come to find you first
Your devils or your gods

All you folks think you run my life
Say I should be willing to compromise
I say all you demons go back to hell
I’ll save my soul save myself

I’m trying to catch up with some happenings from April- maybe I’ll be done by July! Parks got a really cool bubble blower from the Easter Bunny, so we had some bubble fun that afternoon. It must have been a really humid day(imagine that) because the bubbles just kept hanging out in the air. It gave me time to take some photos of them floating around doing their bubble thing. The sunlight or the bubble mix was just right because they were crazy iridescent, no Photoshop edits I promise! Aside from the fact I don’t have PSE on my computer at this very moment, I’m not skilled enough to do anything cool without hours of staring at the computer clicking around wondering what might happen.  Just plane jane nature at it’s best.  Anyway, Parks was more interested in making the bubbles and then whacking at them with the blower, some form of bubble fighting I guess. Such a boy! You can check out the pics from that day on flickr here.
