an evening at the playground!

Sunday, May 13, 2012

I can completely cross off one of my May goals - go to the playground with all six kids! On Wednesday my brothers, their families, my parents (and the puppy!) my grandpa, Kevin and I ordered some pizza and had dinner at the playground. It was a lot of fun and the weather was just perfect! There were a few mishaps, albeit really funny ones like my niece flying out of this weird flower shaped spinning thing because Kevin happened to spin her a liiiittle too fast. (Don't worry, I didn't laugh until I saw she was okay and now it's really funny because in my mind I've exaggerated it!)

I, as always, loaded up my camera bag with about two cameras too many. I never know what I'm going to feel like shooting with until I'm taking pictures. On Wednesday I didn't touch anything else other than my instax 210. It's usually ignored because I swear, it is the most fickle camera. The pictures are usually mediocre but I was actually surprised how much I liked some of these.
my brother, the unabomber.

I'm really glad we were all able to get together and spend this evening at the playground. May is flying by! I'm not even sure when the next time we'll be able to get together as a family will be, other than at my brother's going away party. I really wish we could do this monthly.

  4. Great pictures, Kaylah!! Your mom and dad are so cute!!

  5. These really are some great pictures! They look old school--like pictures of my parents from the 60s and 70s. While they're not always the best quality, there's just something so charming about them. I think all of these pics are now just instant classics : ] Great choice in camera!

  6. Awe, that looks like such great fun! Glad you had a great time. :)

  8. Beautiful shots!It looks like you and your family are having a blast. It's great to see you enjoying each other while they are still here.

    It's true the Instax wide can be really fickle in a lot of settings but boy does it take a beautiful pic in bright sunlight. My Mini 50s is able to handle a lot more varied lighting situations but I always find myself grabbing the Wide when we are heading out for a walk.
