Caleb had a knock-down, drag-out fight with the stomach flu on Thursday, but by Friday he felt well enough to accompany me and the kids to Ms. Lee’s Garden. Ms. Lee’s Garden is a gorgeous plot of land, hills boasting the most glorious daffodils, just a few minutes from our house. Caleb’s parents have several bluebird houses on the land, so we thought we would drive through and check to see if any bluebirds had nested yet.
I decided to get the kids out of their usual mud clothes, dress them for the beautiful spring weather and fix up Audrey’s mullet- just in case there were some picture opportunities. I am slightly thrilled that Pioneer Woman updated the links to her Photoshop Actions, I had been trying to upload them for a week. I guess she knew it was Reece’s birthday on Wednesday, because she fixed them! Check out these shots from Ms. Lee’s Daffodil Garden, the smaller pictures are SOOC (straight out of camera) and the larger is with the designated PS Action. Above is SOOC, the right is with the seventies Action (appropriate, because he was born in the 70’s baby!)
Here’s Reecey, SOOC (SOO Cute, or straight out of camera)
And here she is with the actions Boost and Love & Ethereal
Caleb and I actually managed to get all the kids to sit down in one place for four minutes. I am loving the actions for Photoshop, but if someone could please teach me how to change a head from one picture to another, that would be oh so helpful. This is with the action, Boost.
Truly, could any photograph capture my son better than this? He can’t help but go completely ninja in a bed of daffodils. I can’t remember which action I applied, but I am pretty sure it had to do with Kung Fu.
I am nothing short of giddy that it is looking more like spring around here. Daffodils are blooming, the garden is being tilled and my kids are whipping up mud pies on a daily basis.
Thanks, PW, for giving our Daffodil trip a little Action.
