where's waldo? or was it where's wemma


the girls played outside after school today. it's always nice this time of year when you have a partially sunny day that's not freezing. the girls were out climbing trees (and bushes) in the backyard. i was wondering around getting pics of them doing their thing. i had my 50mm lens on, which i love. it does mean you have to use yourself to zoom, though. by that i mean, if you want it closer, you've gotta move yourself closer. :)

anyway, so there i am with my 50mm, and emma asks me to get a pic of her climbing a "tree"... or whatever kind of shrub it is that she was climbing. so i stepped back to get the whole bush thing in the pic... and man, she looks so tiny up there. can you spot her? lol. i added a hat to the one below to make it easier. lol.

the girls call their tree climbing spots their "crow's nests" in the yard. and i was informed this afternoon,"it's not like the nest of a crow, mom... it's like the crow's nest on a ship." well there you go. i'll have to watch out for my spies in their crow's nests... although i have to admit the bushes look a little like the singing shrub from the three amigos. :)
