With spring in full force, we returned to The Great Outdoors this Sunday afternoon.
- Kati did a spring photo shoot. First she did some group shots with all five of Kristin's children, followed by a session with 20-month-old Alaine who was in a particularly picture-posing mood today and enjoyed herself immensely. Kati will try to do individual sessions with the other children in the coming weeks. Hopefully, she'll be sharing some of these on her own blog soon. (Hint, hint, Kati.) You can read Kati's 10 Tips and Tricks to Photographing Children ~here~.
- We took dessert to the patio today. Choices were crème brûlée made by the girls or Little Debbie™ Kite Brownies.
- The coolish air and the desire to view Kati's pictures sent the adults back inside. But the older four children played outside the rest of the afternoon. They played on the swings, talked Papa into hanging the new hammock, climbed in and out (and in and out) of Brian's truck, bounced on the trampoline, played badminton, and rode the (one) bicycle. Then they requested a nature scavenger hunt, so we searched the internet and printed one out, and they ended their day together with a quest for seeds and rocks and green things.
I love to enjoy the out of doors before summer arrives with its heat and humidity. Have I told you how much I dislike heat and humidity? I feel sure that I have.
