Air

We found a place where we can ride the bikes. But when I say we can ride bikes I really mean everyone else can ride and I’ll do the usual picture taking.

September_0115 We haven’t ridden as much as we normally do. It’s just been the craziest summer we’ve ever had. Now things are settling down we are getting back to the way it used to be. Ahhh, a sigh and a smile. I’ve waited a long time for things to feel back to normal.

September_0122 This is normal. Little Man sitting on my bike watching his brothers zoom past and catch… air.

September_0130 Air. Air is a good thing. Air makes a person feel free. Free from house cleaning, cooking, laundry and dishes. Free from homework, and making beds and cleaning up toys.

September_0135 September_0131 Air, yes it’s a good thing.

Wow! That is a lot of air. How do you stay so calm and take great pictures while these jumps are taking place?

You forgot some reference to the air you breathe: Lineman, Bridge, Colt and Little Man...

Oh my gosh! I don't think I could handle watching them do that! That would make me a nervous wreck! :)

Glad that things are getting back to norm for you.
I think you take great photos.
I was always a nervous wreck when the boys were on their bikes like that.

Little Man is thinking..."You just wait until I get my turn!" He will be catching his own air before you know it.

Love those pictures. How fun for your boys and you. Little man on the bike is so cute.

I'd love some air...heck, I'd even settle for a little space. Great photography as usual!

Andrea said...

Those are amazing shots! Great job catching them all mid-air. I've been working on my photography so I'm curious... what camera do you have? are you using manual mode? Your photos are so sharp & bright, I need to know! :)

Hi there. I am coming to you today from More than Words. I was so excited to see your three boys. I too am a mommy of three boys!

"Can they all just go camping already." I love that line on your sidebar. actually we all go camping and I love it when they go off fishing and leave me for my quiet time in the tent. YIPEEE

Are dirt bikes safe? How bout x sports? I am a mom of three active boys as you are but I am nervous about x sports. any suggestions.

This looks just like where I grew up....blew sky for miles, dirt, and telephone poles and wire for miles...and the jumping of motorcyles and 4-wheelers!
