Ghosts of Halloween’s Past

Halloween is such a fun time for our family.  What’s not to like?  Kids get to dress up and pretend,  I get to craft a costume, and everyone gets candy.  Then of course comes the…PICTURES.

As I was editing this year’s Halloween photos, it made me reflect on what we’ve done in previous years.  It was fun to run down memory lane and visit the ghosts of Halloween’s Past.  Here’s a small sampling of what we’ve done.  Happy Halloween!

A Berry Fun Adventure (Part II)

After picking buckets upon buckets of blackberries at Wildberry Farms in Sadler, TX (see post here), we needed a plan to get those yummy berries in our belly!  I decided that a good old cobbler from The Pioneer Woman would do the trick.  The recipe was super easy and super delicious!

In addition to the cobbler, we also made bakery worthy blueberry muffins, and a fresh blackberry salad…all of which were devoured in record time.

From farm to table.  It doesn’t get taste any better.

Exploring New Depths

One of the items on my summer bucket list is to dive into underwater photography. (See what I did there? Ha!).  But let’s face it, I’m too chicken to put my DSLR under water, so the Go Pro Hero 5 has become my new best friend.

These are my first attempts at using the Go Pro under water.  Before attempting these, I first read the Go Pro guide from Chubby Cheek Photography.  This guide is perfect for the hobbiest photographer or the professional just wanting to step back, relax, and have fun!  She goes over Go Pro settings, water types, lighting, editing, and even outfits.  Check it out and buy it here.

You know what the best part of using this is?  My kids love it just as much as I do.  It’s a win-win!

Lakeside Living

We spent our Memorial Day weekend at the lake with family.  We swam, we played games, we fished, and we enjoyed good company.  It was the perfect start to our summer.  Bring on summer!!!
