Fall Appreciation

Yesterday was one of those days that I was glad the camera was in the car. I caught some fun and colorful photos of Kylie playing in the park.

She decided to go down the slide today. I don't know about you other moms but seeing Kylie climb these stairs gives me feelings of part pride, part happiness and part nervousness. She decided to carry a pinecomb all the way up the stairs with her.

Here she is telling me that she'll go down the slide WITH her pinecomb, thank you very much.

I'll take a brief moment to thank Photoshop for their wonderful photo fixing ways. I shot this picture with one hand. The other hand was ready to catch Kylie. And I was shooting right into the sun. So this is what I originally got.

Anyway, this particular park is surrounded by beautiful trees. I've invited Kylie to play under them but she hasn't been the least bit interested. Until today. Today, she ventured away from the playgym.

And wanted to play among the trees.

I taught her the great joy of running a stick back and forth over a fence. It makes an interesting sound you know.

Dude. That was so cool. (Notice....she is still holding the pinecomb.)


I have no idea of what's going on in her head on this one. None. But it makes a fun photo.

These are the last two pictures of the day and they are un-retouched.
I love the reds in the background. I love how her nose, cheeks, and hands are a bit pink from the cold. I love that she's so tired that she kept her hood up.

This one is nice too. I like how the sun illuminates her turned face. And that lovely patch of sun on her shoulder.

So much happiness. The light, the colors, my camera, my daughter and a beautiful Fall day.

Wow! Photoshop really is great! That picture came out very clear. I love all the pictures. I think its so funny how she never dropped the pinecone! Hilarious!

So beautiful!
So is it pinecomb or pinecone?
comb makes sense based on the shape of one but I definitely always thought it was cone.
yet again I always thought "better than sliced bread" was "better than life's bread" so don't listen to me.
