Today, Will, Ruby & I went on a play date/photog outing with our friends (Crystal, Hailey, McKay & Aaron). It felt great to get out of the house & explore the woods by our home. The older kids spent a big part of the time finding & then throwing sticks into the little creek while Crystal & I tried to keep them from slipping & falling down the slope into the water (seriously, I was paranoid). It was a busy photography shoot, especially chasing kids around who refused to hold still for the camera. Will even started hiding behind a tree from me, & any time I got close to taking a picture, he'd duck away, & start laughing. He thought it was hilarious. Me? Not so much. ;)
I tried taking a pic of Ruby & me, but with a prime lens that's zoomed in pretty close, I didn't have much to work with. I love this picture of Ruby's eyes - they're so sharp & blue. I, on the other hand, look terrifying. I guess that's how I always look though b/c I wasn't trying to look so creepy. Just another tidbit I've learned about myself: if I'm not smiling, I tend to look like something out of a horror movie (or maybe I've just been watching too much Vampire Diaries). Either that, or I just look overly tired . . . which I am, but hey! that's life, & I'll take it.
On our way home: If Will can find anything to kick, he will. His choice today? a little rock that looked like it might have been something other than a rock . . . I hope it was just bark.
