Fun at the Purple Park

The weather is finally starting to warm up again, so we took advantage of the nice weather and went to the Purple Park today.  I remembered my camera this time and managed to snap a few pics in between all the running (Alex & Jordan - not me).

I posted this pic over on my Project 365 blog also, but for those of you who don't visit that blog :(, here it is. It is a blue jay that flew into the tree I was standing near. I had a hard time getting a pic of him because he kept bouncing from branch to branch.

Alex was playing with the tiles and Jordan called his name.

As always, Jordan just loves to have her picture taken.  She almost always stops what she's doing to pose or smile (unlike Alex who usually runs the other way!).

See what I mean?

I managed to get a picture of Alex when he knew I was taking the picture. 
I had just helped him get across the rings, so I told him he had to be still for a second and let me take his picture.

I love this one of Jordan.

I just had to show this picture (not the greatest) so you could see that Alex is still lovin' those Toy Story cowboy boots I bought him.  He rarely wears anything else on his feet!

She's such a beautiful little girl.

I love how the plastic slides make their hair all static-y.  Although his was already sticking up since his mom forgot to comb it down this morning.  :)

So much fun at the Purple Park!

What fabulous photos, honey! You are very good...but I'm sure I'm not the first one to tell you this. You could definitely do some freelance photography...you should look into that.

Jenna said...

Wow these photos are amazing!! Great Job! What lens were you using?

Laura said...

hahaha... Jenna always asked "what lens are you using" ha! Your pics keep getting better and better. I love that last one of Jordan standing on the slide... the composition, her smile, hair blowing in the wind. Beautiful. I want to take her on a photo shoot!

Kathryn - Aw! You made me blush! :) Thank you!

Jenna - Thanks! I left a comment on your blog with what lens I used - my 55-200 Nikon DX.

Laura - The compliment really means a lot coming from you, the awesome photographer! I'm sure Jordan would LOVE to be the subject of a photo shoot with you! As you can see, she loves to have her picture taken ... and she's very photogenic.
