Splish Splash!

Every year as summer approaches, I get more and more antsy to go jump head first into a pool.  Summer is my all-time favorite season.  I love tan lines, sunglasses, giant-brimmed hats, flip-flops, the coconutty smell of sunblock, pedicures, citronella candles, charcoal, fireworks...you name it.  I don't even mind the ridiculous humidity....thanks to the new clinical strength deoderant that's available over the counter.  Today was my first taste: our MOPS group met at the Y for some indoor swimming!  And as if fate were smiling on me, the next theme for Theme Thursdays is water!

My sweet water baby
 His first-ever attempt at the slide.  I had my friend Jennifer stand ready to catch him if necessary since I was standing back a bit to take the picture.  He loved sliding into the water, and continued to do so over and over until we had to leave!
 I love this one!  I sped up the shutter just a touch and I love that you can see his feet cutting through the water! 
 And the grand finale: Crazy Dance in the Pool.
  Kendall, this one is really just for you.  I'm thinking of making a compilation photo book of Wyatt doing his crazy dance all over the world.  We could seek out famous landmarks and monuments just for this exact reason.  Or...we could just pretend now that I HAVE PHOTOSHOP!!!!
P.S.  I haven't installed it yet...haven't had time yet.  Still just using Windows Photo Gallery to "edit" right now.  I did play with contrast for the second and last of these photos, and I love how they turned out, but I cannot wait to see what is in store for me with this new software!

  1. I actually like Windows Photo Gallery quite a bit. It sounds weird, but I like it! I also use GIMP and Picasa. They are free downloads if you want to look.

    Also, I LOVE your pictures! I can't wait to see which one you choose (or a different) for next Thursdays Water!

  2. WPG has worked well for me up until now, and I've been striving to master my new camera so that I get great shots sooc...that way the editing isn't that big of a deal. I am just hungry to start playing with texture and creative editing!
