This afternoon Lily and I were lucky enough to be able to spend the afternoon at the beach with Christine and her beautiful daughters Josie and Sammi (it was Josie's birthday) - HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSIE!!
Lily had a great time playing in the playground (well that was until she slipped over and got a teeny tiny cut on her toe, but the way she was carrying on you would have been forgiven for thinking that she needed to be rushed to the nearest hospital - that's three year olds for you! hahaha). Once she calmed down - she was even lucky enough to get to have a swim with the birthday girl!
While we were at the beach, I managed to snap these photos of Lil.
She looks so serious in this one.
Normally when I try and take a photo of her, I get this posed half squinty, tongue poking out, face - so these ones are a nice change (oh and it's also a real surprise that there is no food smooshed all over her face LOL).
I also had a little play around in my new favourite program...Picasa, and in the first photo I saturated the colours, and in the second one I just added the soft focus around the edges to give it that dreamy look.
I am by no means an expert, but I am loving all the things that you can do just with one little click of a mouse button.
