I decided to pick up my new camera some more on Saturday, to get more comfortable with it.
This post is not sponsored, but these photos were taken with my Nikon D3300 and 35mm 1.8 Nikkor lens and I'm excited to share some #NikonMOMents from our day :)
Here's our Saturday, in photos:
A carnation given to me the day before, for volunteering at the school:
Girls watch Inspector Gadget on Kidoodle.TV
Ken's cooking berries for the tops of our pancakes:
Breakfast is served...
& it's good enough to lick your plate ;)
The girls each earn a "gem" for clearing the dishwasher (I will blog about this system someday!)
Then they read together..
Talia is determined to make a stuffed unicorn as a gift for someone special.
She is cutting out a pattern I printed (will share about this later too!)
Talia has a birthday party to go to today, so we wrap the gift & she's working on the card
We drop Talia off at the party at a bowling alley & Katrina & I come home. Katrina watches a show while I help Talia out by sewing some more of the Unicorn that she started sewing earlier.
Party is over, Unicorn is sewn & ready for finishing touches.
The girls decide which colour of yarn to use for the Unicorn's mane & tail
Ken is home from work (he works every chance he gets these days, including Saturdays- it's hard work to write a thesis!) & we're all relaxing in the sun from the window in the living room.
We get a call from Ken's family and we're invited to come over to hang out with his sister and her girls who are in town for the weekend, so we hop in the car.
Each girl is allowed to bring one stuffy (if we don't limit them they'll choose like 10 each ;)
We stop for gas
We arrive and Rachelle (my sister in law) is outside snapping some photos. Ken & I sit with her and chat while the girls join their cousin and Poppy (Ken's dad) in the backyard.
I go into the backyard to check on the girls. Which is the perfect time to photograph some of the beautiful flowers in my in-laws' backyard (and some beautiful cousins playing on a beautiful day!)
Fun with flower shots
We have dinner & hang out, but I'm too busy to shap photos. Then we get in the car and drive home.
Bedtime ensues, but I guess I didn't pick up the camera again.
It was a lovely day to photograph! :)
