{this moment}

{this moment}~A Soule Mama ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

The Big One


Water balloons.

Max and Maria have been playing with the pack of water balloons I bought them. They've had fun testing the holding power of the little balloons. They've had fun testing my patience when they walk through the house, carrying their water balloons... no mishaps, so far!

But when Max walked up to me with this one... whoa!

How much is in there? A gallon?


Outside, please.

Summer is for exploration, for finding new boundaries, figuring out the answers to questions that take form in the idle moments after breakfast, before sunset.

How strong is a party balloon-punch bag?
How much water will it hold?
What's it gonna do if we stick a pin through it?
Splash, or sploosh?

Max waited for Alex to set up the high speed camera before sticking his creation with the pin. By the way, summer + high speed cameras = uber-slo-mo-fun! We will post footage soon. Otherwise you miss what happens between here...

and here!

I'd say it was a burst and a sploosh, but we'll see what the other camera has to say about that!

Welcome to My Photo Booth

Maria and Suki took a ride in my Magic Photo Booth.

I have the evidence.

Let's take a look, shall we?

The Magic Photo Booth captured all of the fun.

But, then they ran out of quarters...

and they were whisked away!

Until they return, I must remember to feed Crumpet, the fish.
