Mommies are wonderful and we talk about them often. Moms do a special job that no one else can do quite like they can. But Daddies are pretty wonderful too, and it’s nice to take note of the special things that they do also. Like this past Friday night when I went out for a girl’s night with a friend, and my husband took our daughter on a special date.

I remember when I got my first point-and-shoot. It was a “fancy” Canon Elph and thus began my part-time love affair with photography. I suppose it’s fair to say that I’ve never really gotten into it fully, because as a creative, one has to put a limit on how many skills they try to master.
Although, we creative types are notoriously known for trying to do everything. But personally, I don’t care too much about that. My mantra is that if something doesn’t stress you out, and you love it, then just try it! I’ve recently moved through two DSLRs and currently rock a the Canon EOS Rebel T3, a Sigma wide lens (10-20mm) and a couple of other zoom Canon lenses.
For me, my love (and slow, homegrown talent) for the lens has definitely blossomed alongside the growth of my beautiful
monsters children. Another outlet for my lens is food. I’m in a happy place when I’m taking pictures of my babies and whatever I’ve got going on in the kitchen and the garden. I never went hard at it, learning my very few photography skills. It’s happened slowly over time, in the way that all good things do.
It helps that I have adorable, willing subjects and a love for composition, texture and angles. Not to mention a deep respect for the art form and dedicated skill it takes to be a good photographer. It’s a workout in fact! While I definitely promote and advocate the hiring of a local photographer for family pictures, not all of us can afford to do so with the birth of every child, or multiple times a year for all of the special occasions and magical moments in between…

For our family, part of the joy of vacation is doing things we would normally do, but in a more interesting and beautiful setting. Our kids love doing new things, but there are some things that are favorites wherever we go. Playing on playgrounds is one of them. So even though we were in a whole new city with entirely different things to see and do and eat, what did both of my children get most excited about? The playground, of course! Luckily for Jarod and me, the playground we visited in Nice, France, had more to offer than just play equipment. It’s at the top of the hill, where the original city of Nice existed. Surrounding the playground are archeological sites where they have unearthed parts of the old city, and the sweeping views of the Riviera and surrounding countryside are nothing to sneeze at either.
Zinashi had been to this playground when we visited Nice before, and she was incredibly excited to go back. She described it to Elvie in detail, and while I know that Elvie understood very little of what Zinashi said, she definitely caught on to the excitement. When we arrived, she was not disappointed. She adored playing on the playground, and you can tell in these photos. Enjoy this little story of our afternoon at the playground in Nice.

Going to the pumpkin patch is kind of my most favorite tradition ever. My husband and I have been together for almost 12 years (we started dating in high school!) and I’ve made him take me every single year. It was always fun, but now that we have a little one to bring along, it’s infinitely more fun. The whole, entire world is a new experience when seen through the eyes of a child, which is why I love the pumpkin patch even more now. Here’s a peek at our trip to the pumpkin patch!
