>River Rats

That’s what we call our kids and dogs after they’ve been playing in the dirt all weekend at my inlaws’ riverlot. It’s a permanent campsite on the banks of the Susquehanna. The weather was awesome this whole weekend, couldn’t have been better. Nathan had a smile plastered on his face almost the entire time, playing with his cousins and digging in the dirt with his trucks. We decided not to bring the DVD player or movies in the car with us on the three hour trip and it was a great idea. Nathan literally amused himself looking out the window, reading a book or two, and laughing at Pepper the whole way up and back.

Every evening he would come home covered from head to toe in dirt and we would wash it all away, only to get more the next day. His poor little legs are completely black and blue and scraped up today, but it’s only a sign of a great time outdoors.

I did my first Senior Pictures photo shoot and I’m starting to process them now, but I think they look great. It helps to have really attractive models that follow direction and sit still while I shoot. I’ll be doing more later this summer.

Tonight my grandparents arrive to visit for a few days. Not sure exactly how long they are staying or what we will do, but it looks like it will be hot and sunny all week. 🙂

  2. >Sounds like a great time!If you think it’s tough to get good shots of ever-moving toddlers, you should try to photograph kittens sometime!
