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!
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.
