My best friend had a baby about 9 months ago. I asked her if I could make her a diaper cake. She said yes, and suddenly the pressure was on. But, I had a blast, and I think it turned out pretty great!! The little "candies" are baby wash cloths wrapped in tulle.

Yesterday, a few of us brave "moms" loaded up 18 kids & youth from church and took them to Splashway, a small water park close to us. Tuesdays you can get in for about $10. We had a lot of fun, but I am burnt crisp!! I honestly put on sunscreen 3 times, but it did NOT work!!! It was worth it though! Here are some of my favorite shots!!
So, I'm taking a photography class online. It's pretty basic, but I've really enjoyed it!! It's mainly teaching me all about my camera settings and how to utilize my camera best. Knowing when to use what settings and how to get the best picture. Each week I have to submit pictures based on certain criteria. Each week she picks 4-5 photos of the week. (out of about 75) And the first week, one of my photos was picked! I'm not gonna lie, I was a little happy!!! It sets the standard high for week 2!!

So, my husband signed me up for a photography class. I'm pretty excited about it. I've been looking for one to take online, but I had no clue what I was looking for. I found a 4 week course that I thought looked pretty good and was fairly inexpensive, so he signed me up. I'm not looking to start up a photography business anytime soon, but I have a great camera, and I wanted to be able to use it to the best of my abilities and capture some great shots. I'm hoping this course helps me do that. However, I am nervous. I can already tell there are some great photographers in the class, and I always feel insecure. But, hopefully this will make me better. So, I'll keep you updated with what I'm learning.
