sleeping beauty

raelyn has not been taking naps for a long time now, but the other day i could tell she was really tired. i put her in the bed with me while i tried to take an afternoon nap. when i woke up, this is what i saw laying next to me. the most beautiful, peaceful little face. i got the camera and tired practicing with lighting, exposure and depth of field with my focus. i have to say i have missed using the camera. i have just been so whipped out this time around, a lot of the things i love have taken a backseat to the indention my tired body has made in the sofa.

Man, this girl is precious. And you are a great picture-taker, Bonnie. When I come to camp will you show me how to take sweet pics? I've had my camera for a year and a half now but I still don't know how to do much. Also, we should paint.

I am so glad I decided to stop by and peek at your pics. I love these pics. I am also making Marty buy me a new camera. I know your life is about to kick it up a notch with your new little blessing,but take it all in. It is a mere blink....really , and then they are off graduating into adulthood , working at a summer camp , and having the time of their life :) I think you should wallpaper a whole wall of just your kids pics. There are too many beautiful one to choose. I love the one with Dave kissing your sweetie on the horse. xxx
