In between yesterday’s storms and 2 kids sick with fevers, I sat on the couch with my 6 year old, reading, and looked out the window to some lighting I just could not pass up. 

So I ran out with the camera, and though my subjects weren’t totally ideal, I got a few shots I’m happy with! Now if only I could get the vintage effect from Katie Lloyd Photography to work in picasa :0(.

Toys strewn across the backyard, amidst weeds and dying grass.

This is what happens when you leave home for 10 days. The weeds take over!
