Good evening everyone, I hope everyone's had a lovely day.
It's been beautiful weather here the last few day's and we've been out making the most of the sunshine.
We haven't been down to the beach with Rose for quite a while, not to this particular beach since September when she wasn't even crawling yet! It was so enjoyable to just watch her exploring and taking it all in, the day's of eating handfuls of sand seem to have passed thankfully but she still managed to get it all around her face while attempting to chew on a pebble or two! Yummy!
We've got two wedding's coming up that we're going to and Rose's party dress is red so we wanted to see if we could get some shoes for her that would look a little better than her scuffed-up pink toddler trainer type shoes. We ended up going to Clarks to see what they had and thought we may as well get Rose's feet measured again whilst there. Well, they'd grown! She's not even 14 months yet and she's got size 5F feet! Somehow I think she may be quite a tall girl when she's older..! She now has some very pretty mary-jane shoes that look far too grown-up for my liking!
Here are just a few more photo's to show you of our time at the beach... as you can see, I'm still loving my camera's as much as ever. I don't know what I'd do without it now..! I'm looking into different lenses I could get for it now, I really love the photo's I see on people's blogs where the background is blurry behind the figure in a photo. I think this is called Bokeh..?! Can anyone tell me what kind of lens I need to get this effect? My camera is the Canon EOS 550D... I'd be ever so grateful for Any advice! :-)
Rose and I had a lovely day out today, Sarah came to mine first and then we headed over to Gem's house where Annaboo was also waiting for us with their children. I say 'waiting' as they really did have to wait quite a while for us to turn up... Trust there to be a hugggggeeee stand-still traffic jam on our way there, a journey that should have taken 35 minutes took us 2 hours and 20 minutes!! Rose actually coped really well with being strapped in all that time, usually she's not great on long car journeys and I was so grateful to have Sarah next to me to chat to! :-)
Gem had put together a delicious lunch and we all had a great time chatting, we'll definitely have to do it again sometime soon but without the traffic jam which would give us a little more time together! Thank you for having us Gem xxx
