Week-end Catch-Up ~ again!!

 

Some weeks just fly right past and you wonder where they went. This week I've been pretty busy ~ and a lot of it has been to do with photography, though not all. The blogging bit has simply slipped by the wayside. So, tonight you get a multi-post (or an over-dose, depending how you look at it)..!



 Sunday : A friend's 50th, A trip to the park, Baby's first time in a swing and a Youth water fight...






(and a rare capture of Paul!)


Monday : We took the children to Trentham Gardens for an evening picnic ~ we all love it there :-)

The children love the bare-foot (barfus) walk


and I love the Gardens.


They are just ...


Absolutely...


STUNNING!


I love to have the time to just wander with my camera,


and play my way...


while they ...


... play theirs!!

Tuesday: was an at-home kind of day and I got busy listing stuff on E-bay for my son & worked on this Lightroom tutorial.

Wednesday: another at-home kind of day, but this time ordering a canvas for a friend from a shoot I did for her a couple of weeks ago ~ my first ever 'order' ~ hope it turns out as fabulous at it looks on screen! She wanted me to make a collage for her, so I did, but it all feels a bit scary!


Thursday: another family evening outing. We tried to go to a local pick-your-own FRUIT farm, but it was closed~ it's end of season here, so I guess they are closing early :-(  Instead, we ended up in our village park (which is in the throws of being re-furbished) with no fruit in site, but we still had a lot of fun :-)









The new rubber surfacing turned out to make a fabulous floor/back-drop ...



... which sparked a little 'creativity' in me..!

Friday: another photo-shoot for some other lovely friends of mine.
(yes, that's my fourth recently & I have another 'booked' for next weekend!! ~ more on that later...)

The Kerry's


Mr K has just been inducted as pastor in his first church.
They wanted some family shots before they left...


Little Baby K is a very special blessing to them 


and a little ray of sunshine...


... with a very obvious sense of humour already!


They also wanted some more 'formal' shots in their outfits that they wore for the induction.
(Sadly no-one had managed to get a picture of them all together on the day).

So, here's Baby K all dressed up...


but getting formal shots was quite a challenge!!
(I did get some though).

Today: I weighed (my) Baby this morning ~ 18lbs exactly. Believe me he feels heavier than that when I'm oiking him around!!


The girls had friends over for some of the day, and then tonight we had a family BBQ. I just love these long summer evenings. We make the most of them ~ as it seems do others ... 


 It doesn't really matter when the kids play out till almost 10pm ~ if they are a bit tired the next day I know they'll have plenty of week to catch up in :-)


To join in with any of the Linky's click the Logo's at the top (or bottom) ~ see you there!

These are all great, and it does look like quite the busy week. I can see why you have so many bookings the way these turned out!
