Long Weekend To Do List



I got an e-mail from my new friend, Jenny, in Sweden with a challenge to do a weekend family photo and decided it was the perfect way to capture these last few weeks before we add another to the mix. They simply brought a couch to the field next to their house and used a tripod to capture this dramatic sky and their energetic daughter.

If you've got the time, consider yourself challenged to take your own family photo and link back to it in the comments section here and send it to Jenny. (If you're not with family this weekend consider it your self-portrait challenge.) She's one of the two lovely ladies from Dos Family that I shared with you in a previous post with the RAD house. We've decided next time she's in the country visiting family in Nebraska, she should come visit.

RVA Nerd Party pics coming soon!
