Mission Beach- the Kids and the Fun

The babies and I went on a walk and YY got tired so he wanted to sleep on this nice comfy bed on the boardwalk.
He also found a little peice of paper and was convinced that it would help him to read all words. So he would go around comparing it to all the words he saw. Headless on the on coming traffic on the boardwalk. He almost got creamed a couple of times because he would dart across the walkway to see some words.

Tyler just had to have these sunglasses. So we finally got our selves down to the Belmont Amusement Park. When I say finally I mean that we saw them on like Monday and he kept asking me to take him and I finally believed him enough to go. Poor kid. He still has them and takes good care of them.
Guest photographer Nunu. Thanks for these next 4-5 pictures.
Group shot at the tide pools. Can you see Ollie twice.? That kid hid behind his mother during the picture. Well we fixed his wagon.

Alli, you haul your cookies down to the beach for some guy?

This picture was funny because Amanda didn't know there was a guy behind Alli until she saw it later. Well it was funny to us.
Nate got to come out for a short time.
Got a really pretty picture of Nunu baby.
This Laser thing was fun. The kids spent a lot of time trying to beat their times and going in and out It was fun to watch.
They were all obsessed with getting the fastest time.
I love this one of Ry. Makes me laugh.
My sweet Wesley

Best mirror ever. ha


We had to go to Seaworld. It was our first time. What can I say.? It was a zoo. Kids everywhere. Trying to keep track of everybody. Exhausting.
But look at those happy faces. All worth it in the end.
I am afraid Ryan looked a bit like a polygamist with all of these sister wives and kids. Can you imagine.? LOL

Purely Photography (Mission Beach)

I need to get this post out of the way and then I will post the pictures from our fun beach vacation in Mission Beach.
This first one is a picture of a flower/ succulent plant thing. It was just so pretty. The second picture is HDR. I like the first one better. Just interesting to see the difference.
The houses are near the Mormon Battalion in Old Town San Diego. I didn't get to stay in the museum for very long, Emmett was very cranky and wasn't having any of it. So I had to leave, and it was super cool too. Dang it. But I got to shoot a bit.
And check out this little sitting room in the museum. What a sweet little spot to think. The bust of Christ was lit up so beautifully on the table. The whole scene was so sweet.
Little Emmett walked up to that statue and put his little hand on it. It was an amazing moment. I love this picture.

This last one was interesting because I usually don't shoot straight into the sun. I had to over expose by 3 stops to get the over exposed shot for this HDR image.
