Weekend in B&W ~ a trip around the yard

I’m claiming the weekend as already started ’round these parts because 1) technically Jared is home from work early on Friday’s (noon); 2) I wanted to link up to {p,h,f,r} before it became too late and 3) we need a change of pace… so “weekend” it is.

I decided to challenge myself a bit and see if I could do these photos all in Black and White. I think most of them worked OK. But this is something I’ll definitely have to keep working on. I do appologize in advance if this ends up being a photo-dump kinda post. I truely didn’t intend to get this carried away when I was shooting photos in the yard this AM. But I do promise they’re mostly photos and not tons of works 🙂

And if you’d be so kind as to say a quick prayer for my eyesight to stabalize (or get all the way back to normal), that’d be much appreciated. It’s becomming increasingly frustrating to have slightly skewed vision.

At this point in the season we’re just happy the ANYTHING grew in our garden this year. Honestly, it’s never been quite this bad. But the kids were thrilled with the one smallish bell pepper and few tomatoes we found this morning.

My little ones can be completely hilarious. I love trying to capture it on camera. Plus it’s also a good reminder that even the hard moments don’t last forever.

of course, this IS what will happen if you try to ride a scooter in a dress

one of their favorite games is to turn the chairs and play “backhoe”

this is how the chairs are put away when I ask the kids to straighten up the yard
