I didn’t take any photos today with my Canon. Instead, I spent the evening bonding with my beautiful daughter. GothGirl needed some clothes so we did a little shopping. Next, we stopped for dinner…her choice was Noodles & Co. She got her favorite Buttered Noodles with spices and I got the Chinese Chop Salad. Both dishes were really yummy and we had a great time together. I love hanging out with my girl. Photos courtesy of my iPhone:
While we were doing our thing, the boys were fishing at a local lake. They had a fabulous time too. Then again, LilCrockett is happiest anytime he can be outside hangin’ with his dad! Here’s a photo of him with one of the biggest bluegills of the day. Note: I was losing light fast by the time they got home, so I had to snap this photo in Auto using flash.
Finally, I wanted to share some photos that I took yesterday at the Guten Tag Orchard (Home of the Team Quest State Finals) near Chester, IL. It seems an odd location to hold these finals; but then again, it was a wonderful setting. Groups of teams would rotate through the various outbuildings to perform the different events of the day. I particularly enjoyed it because there wasn’t a lot to do while the kids were “in session”, so the grounds made for an interesting backdrop. At one point, I walked down the country lane back towards the pond to take some photos. I loved the rustic barns and such and was happy to get some great shots.
