When will you?

She asks me, and asks me, and asks me.
"Mom!, when will you update your blog?"

I love that she pours over it with her (featured) friends, loves seeing the pictures and stories of her life.

When we headed out for our vacation a few days ago, she saw me grab my camera gear, and said "I don't know why you bother taking pictures, you'll Never update the blog!"

So though time has passed, and photos have been lost, and holidays have hurried by much too quickly, here I am, trying to convince myself to slow down, make the time, and tell the tales.

And so, we shall begin.

a world to ourselves

three and a half days of summer.





 not fancy.  





nor exciting.

not even anything extraordinary or life-changing.





just chipmunks and squirrels and skunks and lizards and seagulls and owls...

and sticks and books





and sand and water and waves and solitude...



and quiet and respite and slow.




and that will do.

 hadrosaur footprint

 fossilized bones





ski season is over, and adventure season begins.

roadtrip : the ancient west....

 
 from the Fremont tribe.. 500 AD








roadtrip : the old west....

 Grafton, Utah 
eventually abandoned from too many indian attacks
 














 same birthday as me!

 many graves of families bore the same death dates, or within a day of each other
