If a pic is worth a thousand words- here's a 9K word essay!

The River in Boerne Falls

I love blogging. I love having a record of all the little stories that happen with the kids. Last week I printed them out and put them in a notebook for the boys to have forever...and it's huge!! And I also love the feedback I get from friends and family, and just knowing that they know what's going on, even though I don't usually have the time to talk. I also love blogging because, as my friends have said, it can be therapeutic. When I have thoughts in my head, I can get them out through this blog.

But today, I got nothing. It's almost like a writer's block.

But I do have pictures. Sometimes those tell the story better than I could anyway!

The pics above I took while at the park in Boerne. This weather has been so great lately, so I finally was able to take the boys to see the river. We had a great time. Charlie kept saying, "This walk is fun!". I wonder if it's because we also stopped in at the toy store across the street?! ;)

So here are a couple I took of the boys while there, as well:

And also, my sister Randi, surprised me by coming up for the weekend from SE Texas. I was bummed to not get any really good pictures, but here a couple I had fun with:

[I especially liked the color one because I didn't even mess with the color saturation; it was just that bright! I did bring up the shadows, since my camera tended to white things out]

Lastly, I've been playing with my camera in manual mode, and found that it actually works better. I'm also beginning to understand what I'm doing, which helps! This is at a park in a neighborhood near us:

And a silly one to end our time:

PS I'm posting all my pics smaller. What do you think works better (big or small)? If you want to see the bigger version, just click on the picture.
