We were on a mission....

literally :)
This morning I decided that Aiden and I would go to Presidio Park. Yesterday it rained, so the grass was wet. I didn't care if Aiden got dirty. He was having so much fun running around and playing with his ball.

***I challenge anyone to go on a photo outing with a 15 month little one. It was so difficult doing this by myself with him, but I had fun. I am glad I went!

Here are some images from today.













-Drink it in, it always goes down smooth
























-This is one of my favorite shots from today. I just love to reflection!!!




-Here we are, ready to go home.

***After doing this outing today, I thought it would be fun to have a photographer's outing to historic parts of San Diego. Would anyone be up for doing this with me?***

Thanks for looking. Big hugs

fauxhawks rule!!! ummm....that reflection image. when i see it i feel like i'm on top of a mountain, and there's flutes playing and trombones and flowers and garlands of fresh herbs. And we will dance till the sun rises.
