Project 365 - Day 223 and 224

The clothes they make for little punkins now are sooo much better than when my boys were little. I have a blast looking at those little shirts, bought this one at Old Navy :)
Day 223
Today I went to lunch at the Cracker Barrel, it was delish but my favorite part of being there is the little country store. I saw this there, it is adorable. I love their candy section too!

Project 365 - Day 220, 221 and 222

Friday I got home and was outside letting Ky play some, when Hank came out and wanted to play too. Every time I went to take his picture he would flip over, and look at me upside down.
Day 220
We went fishing, again, Randy goes every day almost, anyway it was hot as blazes! but the sunset and sky were beautiful. I took a picture of my pole, I only caught one fish all night.
Day 221
Kimber came for a visit Sunday night, she is growing and so pretty!! You should see how active she has gotten, wants to walk and crawls everywhere. We took her outside for a picture, we got her to stand all by herself!! Little punkin is tooo cute!!
Day 222
(yes she is Gigi's princess:)

Project 365 - Day 217, 218 and 219

This picture of Randy is awful, I blurred his nose, should have checked my aperture and backed off a little but since this was the only picture I took that night it will have to be the photo of the day.
Day 217
I got sick as a dog on Wednesday, seriously I haven't thrown up like that in years and years! Ky and Meagan had it the weekend before and I guess I signed up for it some where along the line. Later in the afternoon I got up and took this picture of a little bunny I found in my camera bag, which means that Ky had been in my camera bag looking for gum :)
Day 218
Randy went fishing with a bunch of friends last night and came home with this whooper :)
Day 219
(in my defense I took this picture late, late and refused to use my flash so the focus is soft but I think you get the idea, it was a big ol fish :)

Project 365 - Day 212

It's hot, hot and dry, dry here in Texas, with no signs of letting up anytime soon, triple digits every day. A couple weeks before the 4th of July most of the counties in Texas issued a Burn Ban. No fireworks at the house this year :(
Day 212

Friday, July 1st!!!! I can hardly believe it's July, blazing hot outside to remind me though. I picked up Ky, she had just got home when her Daddy and Pappy pulled up. Very excited she ran outside before I could get her Penny the Pig away from her. It's a Scensy product, has that little smell good pouch inside it. I think that Peggy is getting the lamb one for Kimber :) Too cute. I can not wait to see that baby walking............ohhhh the pictures ;)
Day 213

We were invited to go watch fireworks by Rider and Jana, her brother was helping with a fire department fireworks show. It was nice, hot as heck but the fireworks were too fun. I didn't put my camera on a tripod or mess with all the settings, I hand held it, jacked around with the exposure comp and clicked away. Some were good and some weren't, this one is far from perfect but for some reason I really like it, all the color and smoke appeals to me ;)
Day 214
Sunday we went fishing, got up early and took the boat out to Lake Tawakoni. Really hot but it was fun and we caught 5 big ol catfish!! Betcha can't guess what we had for dinner??
Day 215
Happy 4th of July!! It was a super hot but quiet day for us. I had originally wanted to take pictures of the flags on the porch for my photo of the day but no matter the angle or how I shot it, it just wasn't making me happy. I looked down off the porch and got this instead. What's really weird is the pictures I took of the flags with my iPhone were great, I used some apps on them and really I loved them. Go figure.
Day 216

(hope everyone had a safe and wonderful 4th of July weekend)
