I recently got a new camera and I'm soooooo excited about it! So, of course, I've been dying to try it out by going somewhere that I could just shoot, shoot, shoot photos! And of course I was hoping to also get my my favorite subjects, my children, in the pictures. So today I headed to Huntington Beach to visit the kids and was hoping for a chance to walk to the pier where I could practice taking photos. However, God had other plans and they included rain. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE the rain, but it's not the best weather to have if you are planning to take a walk along the beach! I admit I was a bit disappointed to have to put off a play day with my camera but was sooooo thrilled to be spending the day with my children, because though I know I am biased, I think they are pretty amazing! And they proved how amazing they are when, even though it was cold and stormy, they willingly stopped at the beach and got out of the car and allowed me to take a few pictures. As you can see it was a bit crazy with the wind and the rain and they are not exactly the kind of photos you put on a Christmas card or frame for the wall- -but I think they will always be some of my favorites because of the price the kids paid to allow me at least a little playtime with my new toy!! Thank you Nicholas and Rebecca!!!
