I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

Home Run

It was another cool, but pretty day in Durham, North Carolina and I decided to take advantage of it. It was nice weather and hopefully a good cloudy day for some great pictures.  Jonah was needing to get out of the house, as mom was too, so we headed over to Piney Wood Park and the baseball diamond for some running, giggling, and of course pictures!  There was no one else there so we had the baseball diamond to ourselves.  We spent some time running around the field and then of course ended the day with a little climbing on the bleachers and some raisins.  Here are pictures from the day, I am so happy with how they turned out!

I was trying to be brave and do some shots WITHOUT using my auto.  Well I took about four, freaked out, and went back to using auto.  It's so hard to practice shooting on manual because I don't want to miss the moment. One of these days.

Running, running, always running!  What a perfect place to do it too.

 I actually got a great shot that I was really happy with after, um probably 40 or more!!

Airplane in the sky.  We are big into airplanes these days, well really anything that flys, vrooms, beeps, or is loud and has wheels!  He is all boy and I love it.

Jonah saying, "momma, momma, momma, momma, about  20 times.  But I like to hear that sweet sound so I didn't mind!

After a very busy day playing  and running around like a mad man, we always enjoy our favorite snack raisins!  So I had to take a picture of the empty box that was so happily eaten!

My favorite

We found a dirty old cup under the bleachers, and that was entertainment for the rest of the day!
