Here are a few photos from our family get-together. You can’t beat an evening of croquet on the lawn and s’mores on the fire pit!
This weekend during a family get-together, I let my eleven-year-old nephew experiment with my camera. He asked a great question about making part of the photo blurry, so I did my best to explain depth of field to him. He took all of these photos below – on manual mode. I think he truly has an eye for photography!
Here’s another photo from the farm we visited this weekend. You can’t go wrong with a bonfire, s’mores, and beautiful country skies!
We visited my parents on Saturday, and my mom showed us her new favorite dessert – indoor S’mores, with the marshmallows cooked on the gas stove. Earlier that evening she showed me her tiny, outdated fire extinguisher, noting a replacement may be a good gift idea. Now that I look back, maybe these two occurrences weren’t a coincidence.
