The view from relaxation

This weekend the teenager and I went on another college tour. The institution is about three hours away from our home so we chose to spend the weekend at her godfather's house - which is almost two hours away from the college - so we wouldn't have to get up so early.

It was more travel time, but we like hanging out at his house so we incorporated that into our weekend. After a busy Saturday of travelling, touring and talking, we chose to relax most of today. Amber and I ate breakfast while we watched the movie Taking Lives and were so into chilling that we decided to watch Descent - both of which I had seen before.

There were times today when I wandered outside. I love the backyard at Michael's house. Each time we vist I open the backdoor and let the breeze come in. While outside, I took these pictures:

I thought about those pictures a little after I snapped them and about an article I read that said to think about different angles. So, I went back outside, laid on the cold ground and took these pictures:

I know I'm not a very good photographer (yet!), but I love taking pictures. The last three make me think of the serenity of the sky, the way tree limbs look blowing in the wind and the feel of the breeze on my skin. For me, any pictures of nature soothes my nerves.

What did you do this weekend?
