Our 4th of July festivities lasted most of the weekend.
We spent Saturday at a friend’s pool with our family.
My nephews LOVE the water. Thank goodness.
The lifeguard in me hates that he is on the stairs, but he did have a lot of fun!
My sister’s birthday is on Independence day so that’s always added fun.
I know she was happy to be back in Virginia this year
(my sister and brother-in-law just moved down from Massachusetts last month)
Sunday was spent with church family. Chris and I also headed out to a city park off the North Landing River…with Baxter in tow, of course.
I propped the camera on a frisbee golf ‘hole’ thing (it’s like a metal bucket with chains hanging off it)
It took me a while to figure out the ‘timing’ with the camera timer…I got a lot of shots of my rear as I sprinted back to the bench.
It takes a lot of skill, really, to get back into the shot and look all ‘natural’.
On Monday, our beach + fireworks adventure got rained out
(which you already knew if you live anywhere in eastern Virginia/North Carolina…that storm was a doozie).
Plus I forgot my camera – wop wop. There were too many other things to remember as we were heading out the door….but I was disappointed because beach trips always make for good photography.
