Long Beach Civil War Re-Enactment

Today I took the boys to El Dorado Park for the 2nd Annual Long Beach Civil War Re-Enactment. I'm not a history buff, but I thought this would be a great opportunity to snap some pictures. It was a really overcast day so I did some post-shoot editing to adjust the contrast since most of the pictures were really light.

This is a video I shot of President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. You'll have to excuse the shake. I didn't bring a tripod so I was holding the camera the whole time!

My little goof balls

Riley is my youngest goofy kid. He really enjoyed crawling around with this t-ball bat trying to eat it. I think he thought it was a giant turkey leg!! I got him to stand up for this fun shot.

Maybe it's just the new camera that he likes, but Ryan really likes me to take his picture now. He smiled for this one while enjoying some yummy strawberries.

My mom changed Riley on laundry day so he ended up in one of my nieces outfits. I couldn't resist adding the flower for a funny picture. Catching him yawning was the icing on the cake!

I think Jr has a future as a model. He was saying, "Cheese! Cheese!", with his hands on his hips.

If you want a good laugh, just ask Jr what a dinosaur says. You'll get a big roar complete with hands and a great facial expression. The Nikon D90 takes such quick pictures that I was able to capture the moment.

Legoland Adventure

Today I lost my mind. In my state of insanity I thought it would be a good idea to take my kids to Legoland with my dad and younger sister. It went pretty well and I got lots of great shots. It was really cool to see all the different things they had made of Legos. Here you'll find lots of pictures of displays.

It's that time of year again...

Prom time that is! I took a few pictures of my younger sister before she headed off to a friend's prom.
