It was a gorgeous day, perfect weather that had Henry pointing at the sky exclaiming “blue,” so the twins and I spent three lovely hours outside this afternoon. I was excited to reveal my newest creation for them, a new sandbox made from an under-the-bed storage box. I was feeling very Martha Stewart, and decided to snap photos of every step of the way—set out two milk crates, top with storage box, fill with sand, add toys—and post a cute little “look at me I’m clever!” how-to on the blog.
Except that I’m not Martha, and didn’t notice that I had my fancypants camera set on some manual-adjustment setting, and therefore all my how-to photos got way too overexposed, like we were outside playing in the midst of some horrible solar flare disaster.
Definitely NOT a good thing.
