Another picture-heavy entry. I’ve daybooked a lot this weekend, and because I can’t easily put the pics in my daybook, I’m happy to include more of them here. 🙂

Madelyn had her third (and ultimately final) game in LaxSplash this morning at Hydes Field. Of all the LaxSplash fields, it looks like Hydes was hit the hardest from the rain. The fields were in fair shape, but the rest of the park was a muddy mess. No worries, though; it’s what makes it so memorable!

The Loch Raven Ladies lost this game after getting a good start. Their season may be over, but they played like real pros all weekend. We could not be more proud of them.

This particular game was extremely aggressive, and there’s some question about the ages of some of the girls on the Perry Hall team. This league does not require birth certificates for entry, but it sure would erase a lot of doubt from the parents and spectators if such a requirement were in place. Perhaps next year?

After the game, we had a couple of hours to cool down before heading to Full Moon Farms for Madelyn’s lesson, where she started cantering for the first time. 🙂

Finally, I end with this shot. This was my first attempt at Macro photography. I shot this while waiting for Madelyn to tack up for her lesson. Now, I know I have a lot to learn, as this leaf was still on the tree, the wind was blowing, and I wasn’t shooting with a tripod. Still, I am amazed at what this camera is able to do with all of those things going against me. I can’t wait to spend the time on an actual macro shoot with the tripod and in better circumstances.

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
