We had a very busy weekend with more birthday celebrations on Sunday. My husband and our two sons all have birthdays within four days and it always gets a little crazy for us. In addition to our immediate family birthdays, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and great-nephew have birthdays just a few days earlier. I wonder how many families have these "bunches" of birthdays.
I experimented a bit in trying to get a clear photo of the birthday cake with 23 (plus one for good luck) candles. I turned off my flash and braced my elbows on the table - and this is the result. A tripod would make a difference but sometimes you just have to be a human tripod!
The light of the candles is very bright so you can actually take the photo in the dark. Here he is just starting to blow out the candles...
I'll be off on another trip on Tuesday - headed to Pennsylvania to see my Dad and stopping first at my sister's in New Jersey. I'll catch up on blog posts when I get there (and I'll tell you all about this Happy Birthday banner...).
I hope that soon things will get back into some sort of routine (at least life is never dull around here!).
Is anybody else feeling a little lost with no Olympics to watch?
