The girls and I love taking pictures of just about everything and on this day we wanted to be outside in the beautiful weather taking pictures at the Topiary Park downtown.
So we grabbed the back pack with snacks, the red & white sheet and took off again.
It was a Saturday where they had an event happening they called it
PBJ & Jazz Family Concert Series
Every Saturday in the summer~
You can see what other events they offer here: http://www.topiarypark.org/events.html
We had parked around the block and walked over passing some amazing buildings that they would take pictures of on our way back.
It didn’t take long for Pyper to jump right in taking pictures of the water features.
So we walked around to the area without all the kids but could still hear the music, there were people walking and talking, a cute couple on a date having a picnic and even a table with people from the city doing crafts with the tiny kids. Pyper saw a tree and immediately ran to take pictures, she even caught me on the outside watching her take pictures inside the leaves.
I am not a fan of how I look (turns out there are no make me look younger and slimmer filters on this camera LOL on another note I am trying to work out and moisturize bahahaha) but you can see Phoebe behind me on our striped sheet in the perfect spot just taking in all the people, ducks and topiary creations around her waiting for her turn with the camera.
Of course we had to take a selfie inside the tree!
She caught us observing her photography techniques 🙂
She might have caught me taking her picture too ~
Phoebe waited OH SO PATIENTLY but she went second because lets face it we knew she wouldn’t be giving the camera back to sis so easily~ !
Phoebe focused on the topiaries, flowers and the signs she absolutely loves this can’t wait to do this again with the fall leaves.
I had to keep an eye on her but she wanted space….just like her sister she caught me watching…..but that’s my job!
My turn! I thought it was a great day to get pics of the girls too they looked beautiful personalities shining through with what they decided to wear out that day.
The doll on the other hand …. “Phoebe Can I take a few without your doll?”
We moved over to the other side and got silly it was almost 90 degrees and we had been here for about four hours they might have been getting tired, so we busted out the snacks and chilled under a tree 🙂
As you all know we are Girl Scouts maybe not your typical Scouts but Scouts none the less meaning we bring the back pack it has the trusty first aid kit and ice packs just in case! Well the ice packs come in super handy when the girls get super hot. We were glistening that day that’s for sure.
Phoebe laid comfortably under the tree and actually took some pretty amazing shots….
Some randoms who ever wasn’t in it took it 🙂 !
On our way back to the car shenanigans !~
We took so many pictures I am going to make the girls books so they can look at all the great pictures they took and they can only get better!
