How I spend My Days

Life is truly full of changes and transitions and each time something new happens I learn to embrace it with an open mind and open heart.  My husband encouraged me to start my own photography business and hearing his uplifting words made me confident to just DO IT.  So I did and I was nervous about how it would go and what people would say.  I would be putting my work, my personal work on display for others to truly critique.  It is one thing to do it for myself but having someone trust ME to capture the moment in life they want to capture is nerve wracking.  But, I took my time and built a small portfolio and then literally within weeks I had two paid sessions booked.  And now, my next three months are filling fast!

We also recently decided to hire a new chiropractic assistant so I would no longer work in the clinic two afternoons each week.
I’ll still pop in and help out when the boys are in school and I have time but I need to take this time to REALLY focus on what makes me happy…being a mommy to our boys and photography.
I want to have time to really learn more and more and practice more and more and the way my life has been lately I just don’t have a lot of time.

So I will now be devoting my “free” time each week to photography and when the boys are not in preschool I will be 100% with them.  I have to add that “free” time will also be spent grocery shopping, meal planning, cleaning, laundry and all the great things that come with being an adult.

We recently went to spend a morning at a local park.  We had a picnic, played on the playground and then walked the entire sidewalk checking out the ducks, the trees and enjoying being outside.

The boys are now at such a FUN age.  They play together so well (MOST OF THE TIME) and they will hold hands, kiss each other’s boo boos, say sorry when they hurt the other…just a fun age.
They were walking in front of me and held hands and I could barely compose myself to capture it with my camera!

Exciting things are happening and I am so thankful GOD has blessed me with such riches!

Going to the Park

Posted in Park by

Usually this is the time of year we start getting “cabin fever” due to the cold, harsh winters of Oklahoma.

Nope.  We have been to the park multiple times in the past few weeks and it’s been AWESOME!!

Especially because the boys are finally to the age where they can roam and climb and play without a parent showing them everything.

This was on New Year’s Eve!

There is a great park close by that has a smaller toddler area with slides, choo choo train and cars to climb in for some fun!  Fynn LOVED this truck….he kept moving the steering wheel saying “beep beep beep!”

Kiki came with us and she showed the boys the big slide!
The sun had started going down and the chill was getting to be a bit too much so we had to cut our outing short.

This was a BIG slide for them!

This past weekend we went to a different park with our cousins, Aunt Jenny and Kiki.

COUSINS!

Eric & Sutton Running Around

Having so much fun!

I SEE YOU SUTTON!

This park has so many slides!

Fynn driving again….

Each trip to the park I tell myself it’s the last for a while but then it’s nice outside again!

Hopefully it lasts!

Until next post…

9/11

9/11 is Jason’s cousin’s birthday as well as Grandparent’s Day this year.  We had a big family gathering at Grandma & Grandpa’s house for a cookout and then went to the park.

The house was covered with balloons, which the boys LOVED!.

Sutton & Pappy

Fynn & Bear hanging on the stairs.  His first “boo boo” skinned knee.

COUSINS

Cousin Miranda – Birthday Girl!!

Sutton & Grandma – Sutton seems excited about all the cake & ice cream!

We went to feed the ducks but I think they were full.  They wouldn’t come eat our bread.

Fynn enjoyed playing with the package more than anything.

Sutton yelling for the ducks.  He loves to say, “quack!”

No ducks.  🙁

We went to the playground instead and rode the slides.

Kiki would help get the boys up the stairs…

Daddy would help the boys get down the slide..

Then Pappy would catch us at the bottom…

These boys were all covered in dirt and their clothes became different colors.

We had to stop for a water break.

Onto the next park with Kiki

Cousin Eric coming down the slide

Sutton’s turn.  This child cannot sit up straight to come down a slide!

Fynn and his tongue!

Cousin Elliot just chilled in her stroller and cheered for the boys!  It was so cute, she would just CLAP and CLAP!

We had a great day!  Besides getting completely filthy and hot it was lots of fun and I’m certain all these kiddos slept well!

I think this is the best way to remember 9/11.  Enjoying quality time with family and reminding ourselves to be thankful for each minute together.

Until next post…
