Finally ....

oh my i can't believe how long its been since i have actually sat down in this space to write a post.  this feels good ... this feels right. i was very lucky to get my hands on a new camera this past week and i was able to take it out for a test drive yesterday with my girls.  it took a little bit of time to get back into the groove of taking pictures with an actual camera and not just my iphone but once i did i couldn't stop.

we have been filming everything for a while now so it felt good to get back into the creativity of taking candid pictures of my girls.  there is something so powerful about a single frame of them.  watching them play and laugh and getting that one picture that sums up the whole day, the whole experience, everything i felt, everything they felt, it's all there in that one picture.  i love being able to look back and remember so clearly how we were all feeling and what we were doing.  doing this ... blogging and vlogging .... i am so grateful to live in a time that this is all available and i am able to do it with my children.  i want to remember all of it.  we love to look back at the pictures and videos from when the girls were younger and giggle and tell stories.  it's as good as gold in my books.  

yesterday we met up with some friends at a neighbourhood family fun day.  while we were there we actually saw some old friends i went to high school with that i hadn't seen since.  it was such a fun day and it was a nice little reminder of what's to come so very soon with summer vacation quickly approaching.  so without further adieu here are some photos from our day yesterday.  and yes of course  i vlogged it too so that will be coming up on our youtube channel soon.
