These Two

These two have been spending a lot more one on one time lately! Which I think is GREAT! Though, she may be teaching Rhodes the ropes a little too well....

ISO 400 f/3.2 1/40 31mm FLASH FIRED

I've been playing around lately with my {gasp} pop up flash!!!  I don't think I've ever used it until now!  I've kinda figured out that if you drag the shutter speed just a little (keeping it open longer - especially compared to the speed the camera picks in AUTO mode), more of the ambient light around gets picked up and results in a (much) less harsh flash.

Like here...Rhodes isn't "whited out" by the flash.

ISO 400 f/5 1/25 44mm FLASH FIRED

And here again.  I'm learning that there IS a way to get decent shots (with your pop up flash) indoors!!!  Shocking!  :-)

ISO 400 f/3.5 1/40 26mm FLASH FIRED

Not here though. 

He has a new face these days...he makes it A LOT!

ISO 400 f/2.8 1/40 31mm

ISO 500 f/2.8 1/80 50mm

Some more pics at the ball park!  Which actually doesn't have totally bad lighting! ;-)

ISO 500 f/1.8 1/50 50mm

Clapping and cheering Landon's team on!!!  By the way, we killed the FOURTH team in a row!  15-1 - and the only reason they scored is because we completely changed up the field to see how the kids would do in other positions!  :-)  So proud of their team!

Lillian asked me to take a pic of her blue tongue!!  Love some ballpark Airheads! ;-)

Brother's tongue soon followed....

Hey, whatever keeps him happy and in the stroller at the ball park!

Olivia has a new spot at the ball park!  She get's to keep score with one of the players Grandfathers!!  She LOVES it and feels so special.  We're all jealous, because she's in the air conditioner!  Though the night game wasn't too bad!

I am thoroughly enjoying the ballpark...seriously, I had my doubts.  But I'm finding myself fitting in just perfectly out there!!!


  1. Love the one of Rhodes standing and looking up! It's so fun to see him on his feet now.

    The ballpark sounds fun. Just a few more years and I'm sure that's where I'll be, too. :)

  2. I love the Zoolander face! Great pics!

  3. I never thought I'd be a good ballpark mom, but it turns out that I love it! I'm the team mom for both the 7- and 6-year-old teams this season, and it's going great. Love baseball!


If you don't have anything nice to say, then, please don't say anything at all! THANKS!
