What an awesome day.
We decided that we needed to take a time-out from our lives to go and romp around at Fiesta Island with our best friend Mace. He’s been so patient with us lately, as we have had a lot of things on our plate getting ready for wedding season. He totally deserved to take a trip out to the bay for some sunshine, flowers and the ocean! Best of all, we just bought a new lens this morning: the Nikon 50mm f/1.4. Our good friends at Nelson Photo in Little Italy ordered this for us 2 months ago… Needless to say, we were really anxious to try it out! So we strapped on our cameras and shot only with that one new lens (a great exercise, by the way) and the verdict: WE LOVE IT! 🙂
Time to run through the freshly bloomed flowers! I chased Macers all over the meadows in the middle of the island. Talk about a really good test for how a lens performs: focus on a FAST moving object!

OK! More flowers dad! 🙂
We of course had to go to the bayside. I think that Mace would have a conniption fit if we went to Fiesta and never went in the smelly water.
We were so excited to have a day to ourselves. Sometimes we all get wrapped up in our jobs, our priorities and our commitments. Slowing down for a day is a GOOD THING… time to reset and get grounded. I’d like to offer everyone I know this fabulous quote from a very wise young man:
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
