Theme Thursday: Fashion

High fashion models know how to work their props, particularly if it's a favorite bedtime toy:

BSM: Playground Letters

Had fun with letters at the school playground. Well, at least some of us did...

C is for Caitlyn

B is for "pout?"

Hmmm....too bad it's not P for "pout"...

Theme Thursday: Summer Fun

I'm veering away from the usual summer fun pictures involving pools, popsicles, and sunscreen and into a lesser-known region of summer activities: weapons of mass destruction. I exaggerate just a bit, but I've spent the last two days chaperoning Cub Scout day camp, so I'm sure you'll forgive me.

At Cub Scout camp, in addition to making treasure chests, running obstacle courses, creating funny hats, and making s'mores, my eight year old did this...


and this...


Ask any boy at camp which of the many activities he wanted to do again and again? Yep, you guessed it: BB guns and archery. Weapons and summer fun -- what a combination.

Theme Thursday: Unrefined

What could be more "unrefined" and "raw" than a day at the beach? Sand, saltwater, wind, and sun...

I'll shoot this kind of RAW anyday ;)...

BSM: S'Mores

What's one of the best parts of summer? S'mores, definitely s'mores...


Another great part of summer? Hanging out in your swim trunks, covered in dirt, marshmallows, and bandaids. Ain't life sweet?

BSM: Laugh

I grabbed this shot of Harrison and Will after the 4th of July parade at our neighborhood park. It's actually a series of three: the set up, the joke, and the laugh (they're posted in my Flickr account if you are interested :). I love this one because it captures the joy of a shared laugh, caught unaware.

Anyone have thoughts on my altered blog template? I changed it to a wider one that better accommodated photos. I'm not sure I like it...suggestions, anyone?

Theme Thursday: Linear

You're going to have to forgive me for this one, but when Owen came downstairs with this outfit on, I knew I need look no further for this week's theme: Linear...the psychodelic version!

linear nightmare

This "best dressed list" outfit was painful to see. Stripes, plaids, patchwork....lines every which way but loose; definitely more than the eye can take. I present to you: Linear Nightmare...up close and personal.

on the best dressed list...

I will, say, however, that he certainly wore it with confidence :)!
