Last of Jasmine's Photos

I took more photos of Jasmine, but I didn't do much editing because I am in a Photoshop class now and want to play around with them. Yet I want your opinion on the best ones. Many are very similar to earlier ones, but it's a different beach, and we were trying to fix some things I saw in the earlier photos. I'm sure once I finish Photoshop class at the end of September I'll be able to really make the pictures shine. That will take care of the light issues in some of these. If you have experience with Photoshop please share your ideas. I have never worked with it before.

So here are the last batch of photos. LOL. For now at least.

Hanging at the Beach

I think the beach really is our favorite place. This trip to the beach was both for fun and to collect cans to recycle for money.

 The water was exceptionally beautiful this day.

I am truly a beach snob now that I'm used to white sand and the blue/turquoise/emerald water.

I didn't take any photos of the kids' cans, but they had $12.20 in cans.

Last Day of Summer Vacation

August 14 was our last day of freedom. And it was also Jessica's 27th birthday. So we watched the girls overnight the 13th and all day the 4th so Hunter could take Jessica on a deep sea fishing trip. River is in a bit of a difficult phase right now--very 2 ish, so we decided to have a backyard pool party day.

Winter ready for bed on the 13th

She decided to help me with revisions.

It was a beautiful day, so we set up the slip and slide. We made a popsicle challenge where they had to slide down and grab the popsicle in their mouths.

We also got a clearanced blow up pool.

We started pulled pork in the crock pot early in the day so it would be ready when Hunter and Jessica got back from fishing.

Then we had a game time.

Winter took a good nap.

River would have nothing to do with resting or even sitting while someone read books to her. She fell asleep right before supper. She was NOT a cheerful child when her dad woke her up a while later!

 Winter is 15 months old and a good eater!

27 candles

It was a good transition to the first day of school.
