Another week — or is it two weeks? A month, maybe?
In this entry, I document a rainy afternoon in the play room, serious art projects, cereal box robot arms, a puddle-laden walk, and our first big family outing since February — strawberry-picking at Critzer Family Farm in Afton, Virginia.
As always, my photos are made using only natural light, whether it be through a window, during golden hour, or in direct sunlight. In this series, I experimented with light coming in through our front door — one time around bedtime; another, in late afternoon. I'll note them below, so you can see the difference just a few hours makes.

Rainy afternoon in Tucker's play room. I loved playing around with the day's low light.
Front door photo in late afternoon. The light creates such cool rainbow splatters inside!
Breaking in the splash pad. We basically live at the beach now.
Your kids stick scissors in their mouths too, right?

Empty boxes are the best!

Ready to pick strawberries!
But first, this old tractor.
