Camping Trip

Last weekend, we went camping with some friends at a nearby campgrounds. We had so much fun! Here is our group at dinner the night we had a "potluck". The bird sat in a low tree right above our campsite the whole trip!(: Santa visited the kids, since it was Christmas in July weekend! I put the picture of Gwyneth in there, just because it was cute!

Thursday night, (the first night we were there), Haydn looked out at the pond at night and said, "Ohhhhh! Mommm!! Go get your camera! We need to take a picture of this! It's beautiful! It looks like New York City at night!" (;
Finally, the last night we were there, Haydn and I snuck away from the campfire to take some pictures of the pond. We messed around with my camera and I got to explain some concepts to him. We had a lot of fun taking them. These were our favorites! And then we almost got eaten by a few raccoons!!

Hi Tricia! I saw your blog address on FB and wanted to check it out! I LOVE this camping pic at night! How did you do it? You should enter it at the fair. :-)

Thank you, Heather! Which one do you like better? We slowed the shutter speed way down and used a bench as a tripod. We also messed with the aperture setting.
