this was that one time where i was the fireman.
this was that one time we went on a walk.
this was that one time Mya and Lydia looked so cute holding hands and running ahead.

this was that one time i brought my camera on the walk.

archery | photos + video

archery.
something we're not good at.
i hit the exact middle of the target once in my life.
i've shot many arrows.
no, we're not good at archery, we don't claim to be, it's sort of a forgotten sport.
but did you ever try it out?
it's actually quite fun, and addicting.
one day a few weeks ago, I got back from babysitting (the exact day i took these picture), and they we're shooting arrows out back.
I grabbed my camera, and started snapping (and shooting).
these are the results.
and when i think back on that day, i get a warm fuzzy feeling.
it was a good day.

just thought I'd add for the record, in the video and in that picture where the arrow is next to the bullseye, well, that was my arrow. ha! just thought i'd add.

ps- i have a few more videos that i've made that aren't for the challenge that i need to post, so those should be coming your way soon. i have much to post, and not much time to post it.

i dont think i could tell you how much i love that last photo. so much emotion, so much personality.
well, the end of the posts of my state fair photos sort of ends the feeling i've been hanging onto. that one where it still felt so close and so real. not that this was a big deal or anything, but it was there, and it did happen, and i was happy. and it was just an all around good day. but now that this comes to a close, that close feeling, it's dissipated and it has now left. i guess that's the good thing. next year i'll be able  to have that feeling again, and it will come if it's anything like this year and not like last year. but let's just hope that nothing will be like last year ever again, because, let's be real, no one really wants that, me most especially. thank you.

well, that's it for the state fair posts, folks! did you read about my challenge here? it'll be really fun, and i really want you to join. (did i mention that it would be really fun?)
