The Deistette has been hounding me for the longest time to go to the arboretum here in town and I finally conceded. She loves doing things like this and I was constantly resisting.
Turns out I should have done this a long time ago. For one, it makes her happy. And secondly, it was pretty nice to just get away from the house and our part of town for a little walk about.
|Here are some pics from the hour or so that we spent there.
This is one of Emmie using my camera. Sorry it’s a little dark but I didn’t change the settings on my little point and shoot before taking this one. It’s the first time she’s held a camera that wasn’t a point and shoot in her hands. She doesn’t know much about the basics of photography but she got a couple of pretty cool shots.
Here are two she got that were really nice.
Here’s The Little Man jumping off a fallen log. He was a little quick for me but this is the precise reason I bought a digital point and shoot. I love this pic.
A couple of some Rough Dogwood blossoms. These turned out surprisingly nice for a point and shoot.
And of course how could I not post the money shot.

[Deist gets bonked on the head a few times. “ow! (hee hee hee) Hey! quit it. (hee hee hee) what are you doing!” hee hee hee. oh yeah… nice and relaxing]
