This past Monday was George Washington’s birthday, or President’s day, a 3 day weekend for us all and we had nothing planned other than a few soccer games and our first meeting for our mission trip. We pretty much hung out at the house, and went to the park. So naturally, I whipped out the good ‘ole 20D and tortured my children with a 50mm lens in their face.
Here are some shots I took (click to view):
What did you do over the 3 day weekend? (if you had one)
Also, along with pretty much chillaxin the whole weekend, Andy Stanley concluded his Big Church series which you can watch here. I can’t even recommend one message over the other (out of 6), but there are pretty brief descriptions of each should that help in deciding.
I’d go with all of them, but that’s just me.
Dude, those pics are amazing.
It helps when the subjects are amazing 🙂 Thanks Michael
Ben, you have some seriously cute kids. Well done, and great pictures.
Today I am concluding my 5 day weekend. No, I am not rubbing it in.
Thanks Dustin, thanks to Kim they were lucky enough to get her genes.
5 days? AND I just read that Jen said you had TRI-TIP?! You’re killing me smalls! Don’t you think it’s funny that nobody here (GA) even knows what that cut is?
I need to go to Costco and get me some. Now.
Great shots of the family. What kind of camera do you have?
I didn’t have a 3 day weekend, but I’m glad it’s already Wednesday.
Andy Stanley’s Big Church series is incredible. Still catching up on podcasts, but I got through the first 3 and was blown away.
I have a very old Canon 20D, sold about $2,000 worth of lenses in the last year (sad), so all I have now is my 50mm f1.8. It’s pretty sweet though.
Yeah, this series is probably one of my fave’s in the 5 years we’ve been at North Point.
Great shots dude and beautiful kiddos.
I had to work so no 3-day weekend for me. I’ll have one next week though! I’m going to visit a friend (wink, wink) in D.C.
DC… wow! Good luck buddy.
Thanks Tony, sucks for no 3-day but AWESOME for visiting that, um, “friend.” Good luck 🙂
Definitely great shots, Ben! What plugin are you using for your gallery there?
Thanks Joseph, I use Lightbox Plus: http://www.23systems.net/plugins/lightbox-plus/
It does what I like, and it’s pretty simple and easy to set up. I’m open to different ones also but I just don’t want to spend the time to research. I think somebody in the Standard Theme forums recommended it, I can’t remember.
Thanks, man. I’ll check it out.
Ben. If you ever need a male model to photograph. You can hit me up! LOL.
Great pics and fun family time. I had a 3 day weekend (cold) which I proceeded to stay home with my son and watch 6 hours of “The Amazing Spiderman” while he pretended to be one and jumping on me.
It was fun though. Love playing with my kids.
I don’t need a male model. Don’t ever ask again. Ever. LOL
Spiderman for six hours sounds like six hours of awesomeness, and him jumping on you sounds hilarious.
When Jack pretends to be a football player, he tells me he wants to play football, goes and gets the ball, and proceeds in tossing it at my eye.
I love it.
Bwahaha… male model.
I know where your insecurity comes from.
I’m sorry that good-looking people like us made you throw up and feel bad about yourself.
10+ points if you tell me what movie that’s from.
Blue Steel ftw!
Ha! I love that movie. One of my favorites.
Just hung out with the family. I was not off Monday:(
Aw weaksauce, although I do wonder why some of us do have it off, I don’t complain.
Fantastic pics – as usual, no BS! hee hee hee!
lol thanks Jo.
Niiiice, son. Thank you for the great start to my day…and reminding me how fortunate I am to call these 3 munchkins – – – Grandchildren….awesome blessings!!!
Absolutely pops, glad to get your day started with a smile 🙂
Dude, your kids are adorable – love the pics! And whether or not you want to admit it, your little guy looks exactly like you. And no, I’m not calling you adorable.
LOL, nah I know he looks like me, in fact one of our friends who always called me “Ben-ha-meen” (Benjamin w/ a spanish accent) calls Jack “Ben-ha-mee-nee.”
It’s ok sometimes to call another man adorable. This, is not one of those times.
Great pics. I didn’t have a 3 day weekend, but I tried to spend as much time with my family as I could. The weather has been pretty good, so we have been throwing the baseball around some.
Thanks Matt, can’t wait to throw the ball around w/ Jack. Football is his thing right now, but soon we’ll get him a glove.
I am Canadian so we didn’t get a 3 day week end. Great shots of your kids Ben!
Oh, so sorry, but thanks! lol
Of course naturally… hehe
Thanks Jeff 🙂
*sigh* miss these smiles SO MUCH! Funny…Jack’s tshirt has more teeth than he does…love that boy! Can’t wait to see them again…hopefully VERY soon!
LOL @ the teeth
