Daffodils

Have you ever planned something and then just laughed as your plan fell apart right in front of you?  That was my morning with the daffodils.  I'm taking a awesome, amazing, exciting, unbelievable photography class and I had some "homework assignments" to do.  Usually I get to them right after the class ends.  But since I didn't get a chance to yet I decided to take the girls to a daffodil park. 

My plan was to leave at 9:00 sharp to get some pretty, nonharsh sunlight.  We ended up leaving at 10:30.  (just in time for the harsh sun).  I kept looking for shade but then it dawned on me, duh, it's a daffodil park, they need sun to grow.  Okay, so I'll have the girls turn their backs away from the sun... but then I got no daffodils in the pictures just nice soft skin.  I decided to compromise and take the harsh shadows on their faces so that I could get the pretty yellow daffodils. 

Can you tell how windy and cold it was?  Oh, and I forgot my reflector which would have blocked the shadows on her face.  (the reflector was the WHOLE REASON I was there.  The reflector was my homework) 



This is Abigail's pout.  Someday I'll want to remember it.



And also, Anna got car sick on the drive there and on the way home.  I felt so bad for her.




She started feeling better with some fresh air. 





All and all I'm glad we went.  They had a huge playground that I didn't know about it and the girls had fun playing.  Next time I try to leave early, remember all my gear, put Anna's motion sickness bands on, and plan better for the weather. :)

    I would love to hear more about this class. Is it on-line? PLEASE give me a lesson each night when you come home! They say the best way to learn is to teach right?!?!:)
