Jeremy has been traveling a lot lately. Travel is hard on a family, especially when you have two young kids going through a lot of adjustments in life all at the same time (school, soccer, swimming, no dad). Trying to get into a routine has been challenging. Handling the outbursts and melt downs has been challenging. Needing a break … well, let’s just say it was REALLY needed. My parents kindly took the boys overnight on Saturday so that Jeremy and I could spend some time together without refereeing two kids, handling all their requests, having half conversations. You all know the drill – it is life with two kids under six.
When posed with what to do for an evening, I realized that it has been a long time since Jeremy and I have just explored with my camera in hand. There is a highway just south of Snohomish where we got our Christmas tree last year that has spectacular fields and the mountains off in the distance. Sadly the mountains were obscured by cloud cover, but we found a pumpkin patch, a beautiful horse pasture and a lone tree beyond a corn field at sunset. The light was magical and I got to play around with some landscape photography (which I don’t often do). There are a few different versions of similar photos as the light faded through into sunset. I needed that creative outlet and am hoping that as the boys get a little older, it is going to get easier to drag them along as I explore new places.
Enjoy the photos!
