What's a mom to do?

No school today.. well, for Lynn at least. I made up a day off for Ashley, so they could have some time together and so I could have a laid back day..
So what's a mom to do?
Clean the house..
Wash some laundry...
Done and done.
So I decided to have a very impromptu photo session in the lovely sunlight and colors in our own back yard..
We tried to drive up Trapper's Loop yesterday.. I prayed for some left over color, maybe even a nice straw colored field in which to take some pictures.. but all we got was a pretty drive and lots of deer.
I am trying to sell Mer-Bear on the idea of an awesome new lens and flash.. that I.. um.. need?
Don't you agree?

It was more like a torture session for two of my three kiddos.. I picked the wardrobe and fixed the hair, the way I WANTED IT.
See.. torture.
They did have some fun, and I did get some good shots..

Don't worry.. it wasn't all rainbows and smiles.

Love your header, jealous.
Your pictures are wonderful. I can never get my girls to let me do their hair the way I want.
