Friday Fun!

Hi all! Hope your week was nothing short of wonderful and that everyone stayed cool in this crazy heat! I'm blogging a little early this week since we are going out of town for the weekend!

I've got a huge favor to ask of my fellow bloggers if you're reading along. My husband and I are looking for somewhere fun and worth the money to take our baby boy! We plan on going to the Louisville (KY) Zoo in a month or two when the heat isn't so intense and also because my oldest sister lives there but we want to go on a 'weekend getaway' somewhere here or in surrounding states! So if you know of any place that would be fun and enjoyable for us AND our two year old don't hold back! :)

I've taken SO. MANY. PHOTOS. lately. It's summer, can ya blame me?! LOL! It's not only me taking them often but taking MANY in one afternoon session haha. Like the other evening we went for about a 25 minute walk and I came home with around 65 photos...HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?! Oh well, it gives me something to do at night I guess ;)

Here are some Friday Challenges and some photos to go along with them (of course!)

This has got to be a favorite from our walk, I love that toothy-curled lip grin and the processing I did in Lightroom suited it well in all the right places! Love my boys!

Before I get to my real comment...
LOL -- girl, your music player scares the poop out of me every time I click over! Oye! I jump and almost scream every time, always forgetting that I have to turn my volume way down when I visit you... just so I don't disturb others who live in my house. But I do love that Tangled up song... :)

Anyway!!

Oye, I ADORE that first shot! To be carried safe and secure in Daddy's arms... (oye, I'm tearing up over here!) Beautiful lr processing, as well! :)

I love your field shot -- nice and green and hot and hazy! SUMMER!! Everything here is burnt brown... and the leaves are already starting to fall because they're fried. :(

Oye, I about teared up on the one right after that too.. Shesh, what's my problem today?? <3 <3 <3

Love the water shots! And beautiful frozen water on that last shot! And it's a bokeh-tree!! That's where we get bokeh from! The bokeh tree! haha!

xoxo
Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie!
