Girls' trip to Portland

My beautiful cousins-  I'm not the only shutterbug ;)


My momma loves pretty flowers


More pieces of the shipwreck


VooDoo Doughnuts is an institution.  The peanut butter Oreo doughnut was awesome.  The voodoo doll doughnut had yummy raspberry jelly inside.  Yum!

Purple- my favorite!

Just another rainy day

July was a very wet month for us.  We got over 3 inches of rain!  Anytime it rains, we all head outside to play.  It doesn't happen very often so we have to enjoy it while it lasts.

Our neighbors across the street came out to watch the rain, too.  I think they kind of look like ghosts.  

Branch down!  We heard it hit and went outside to investigate.  Good thing we have a new roof!

Our street was completely flooded.  A couple hours later, it was gone.

The boys were soaked after playing in the rain.

1st day of Kindergarten

I'm behind with my personal photos.  Big surprise, I know.  Logan actually started school three weeks ago.  He loves it.  When asked, he says his favorite part is recess.  He's doing very well in reading and math.  It has been so fun to see him learning new things.  Jason and I are so proud.

Ready to go!

Playing with Photoshop

I am still learning new tricks in Photoshop.  There is so much I can do with it.  It's so much fun.  Here are a couple recent assignments I've completed.  The ballerina is my beautiful niece, Ally.  This photo was taken at her ballet studio during family day back in May.

Ryan's 3 year portraits

I am a little late posting these photos.  We took them at Freestone Park in early June.  I've been learning new editing techniques and my photos are turning out even better.  It's so exciting to learn new things.  Anyway, here are a few of my favorite shots.  It is hard to believe my baby is THREE!  Where does the time go?  (Don't even get me started on his big brother starting kindergarten next week.  Geez!)

He's such a handsome kid!  :)

Lesson 3

Frames and textures.  The options are endless.  This is another image from Ryan's photo session earlier this month.

Lesson 2

In this lesson we practiced using templates to create a digital scrapbook page. 

All I did was add the photos, the journaling box and the text.  I think I might like digital scrapbooking if I could create the entire page myself.  Hopefully that is the next lesson.
