{And Then We Snapped} – Week 25

 

Onto Week 25 of {And Then We Snapped}!  With school really starting to ramp up, I anticipate this being my last long post for some time.  It’s been a busy week with Grandma in town and Papa out of town so I took advantage of the extra help to try and get ahead a bit for the semester.  Enjoy our busy week!

{And Then We Snapped} – Week 24

I’m thrilled to be able to make another round of the {And Then We Snapped} blog circle before the semester really starts to turn up!  We had a number of gloomy days this past week so I tried to make the best of it.  Inspired by others in the {And Then We Snapped} blog circle I even gave freelensing a try with some limited success.  I’m looking forward to a warmer up coming week and hope that I can get the boys out to explore a few times in-between everything else on the schedule!

Boys Will Be Boys – January 2015

We’ve had many adventures since the last Boys Will Be Boys blog circle and it was hard to narrow it down to just a couple of experiences to share!  We took a trip to visit family for the holidays and we spent some time exploring the river nearly my in-laws house and then I took the boys to my hometown beach on a different leg of the trip.  I’ve had a lot of fun playing with a 135mm lens lately and have found it to be perfect for chasing my active boys!

Please continue on the Boys Will Be Boys blog circle with Chantell Sims of Chasing Tydes Photography here.

My boys love playing in the river and finding different ways to cross various parts of it to continue their exploring of the area.  Sometimes when we visit the water is high and our adventures are relegated to the forest.  Other times we can walk on the riverbed, tossing stones as we go.

Often times the lake is partially frozen over by mid-December, but it was a beautiful seasonably warm day and perfect for a little exploring.  For the first time, I ventured with both kids out onto the break walls not only I walked out on as a child, but so did my mother, and my grandparents.  The water was chilly, but they dipped their toes in anyway and they ran and ran and ran.  While the light was not ideal, I just wanted to capture the boys at a place that holds so many childhood memories for me.IMG_2588_BWBB1 IMG_2593_BWBB2 IMG_2574_BWBB3 IMG_2597_BWBB4 IMG_2616_BWBB5 IMG_2606_BWBB6 IMG_2604_BWBB7 IMG_2609_BWBB9 IMG_2614_BWBB11 IMG_2642_BWBB8IMG_2625_BWBB10 IMG_2645_BWBB8B IMG_2647_BWBB112 IMG_2656_BWBB13 IMG_2669_BWBB14 IMG_2672_BWBB15 IMG_2675_BWBB16 IMG_2697_BWBB17

{And Then We Snapped} – Week 22!

With returning to both graduate school and work in the Fall 2014 semester, I needed to take a break from the {And Then We Snapped} blog circle and give my attention to other responsibilities.  I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to keep up this stint, but I am going to try and post weekly even if I only have a couple of images to share.  While I still need to catch up on some December editing (look for those in a Boys Will Be Boys post coming soon!) here is how we spent the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015.

{And Then We Snapped} – Week 15

And… I’m back!  Finally got caught up on images from the past couple weeks and hopefully I’ll be better about staying on top of everything.  I’m learning to better balance my time and get help where I need it (hello cleaning lady!).  We haven’t had as much time for adventures but I’m still trying to squeeze them in as often as I can!
