I need a lot more practice, but this is a good start.
Allan took us to Potato Creek Tuesday afternoon.Â It was humid, but a beautiful day to be outside. We took a walk on one of Allan and my favorite trails.Â We used to walk there a lot because I really like the boardwalks and scenery.
We decided to try a family picture there.Â It was the funniest attempt at a picture in a long time.Â To get the picture, Allan set the camera timer and then maneuvered around a 90 degree angle, down the boardwalk, around a 45 degree angle and then raced to us.Â To make it more fun, there was a huge spiny caterpillar around the railing by the camera, so he needed to be careful not to touch it as he rushed around the corner. Most of the time,Â he made just before the camera flashed.
For our 17th anniversary, Allan and I wanted to get a good picture of just us.Â We have very few, and the last one was taken over a year ago.Â Before that?Â I can’t remember. We tried, but they just were not right.Â We did not want a formal picture, we wanted a fun one!
Then, Allan discovered a contest at a blog he reads.Â To enter, we needed to send in a creative picture of the two of us and the number of years married.Â If you head on over to the link, you can send your own picture. Or you can see when the voting is and see what other people came up with and vote for your favorite.
Well, our vacation this summer was mostly backyard stuff and a few day trips.Â But Allan and I have been spending LOTS of evenings outside. So we decided to get our picture in the backyard.
Allan set up the camera and I did the writing with a flashlight.Â After figuring out how it would all work, and what we wanted, we had fun playing!
Now, to get a good family picture!
