Mamatography Week 26

This post is part of Mamatography 2012, a project hosted by Diary of a First Child. The goal is to document the entire year of 2012 in photos. Paired with my participation in fellow Coast Guard Wife Courtney Kirkland‘s 52 Faces project and her Move to Manual series, I am definitely learning more about my camera, my photos, & my kids, and I’ll have plenty of great photos to document 2012. Please visit the links at the bottom of my post to see other Mamatography posts! And if you are participating in Mamatography, click on over to the BLOG HOP going on at Diary of a First Child and join in!

It’s definitely summer! We’ve been having HOT and HUMID temps here in Maine.
LOVING the backyard – pool, sprinkler, sandbox, garden. .  we’re good!
Joe went up and down his very own “water slide” over and over and over.
Abs, talking to daddy about SOMETHING. Note the silly, stubborn look. Love.
A great (erm. . . lucky?) shot of Abbey jumping from the climber into the sprinkler.
Um, little Silly Bear. . . could you get ANY more gorgeous?
(This was one of my really good shots of this week. SLR-ariffic!)
 Our veggie and fruit garden is growing well. Jed and I had the kids help mulch our front and back gardens this week. I have one “garden salsa” hot pepper that’s already 5 inches long. Almost time to harvest that sucker! And other peppers coming along. . . and our pumpkin plant is doing AWESOME.
 Raven – enjoying the sunny afternoon on the porch
 Our Pumpkin Plant. Seeded into the lawn and won’t let go. It’s going great. Anyone have tips on how to really get a good harvest or help the pumpkins grow?
 Again, little Silly Bear . . . you’re TOO CUTE.
Looking forward to many more sprinkler-joy filled afternoons this summer!!!!!
I used to LOVE playing in the sprinkler with my big brother when I was little. I’m going to have to fish out some good pics of those times . . . maybe in the next couple weeks.
That was our week. How was yours!?

Are you up for a challenge? One that will take something from you every day, but give a whole lot back too? How about joining me for the photography challenge in 2012 then? A photo a day of whatever your day involved. You can jump in any time through the year! If you’d still like to join us, you can start at any time, just sign up here and our host will email you further information.

Without further ado, here is the current list of all participants for Mamatography 2012 so far!
