  1. such FUN! Scout played on one of those wrecking ball bouncy houses a couple of years ago...he loved it and we've been to several events with bouncy houses...but we've never seen one again...

    ~Have a lovely day!

  2. Love the photos today. A few of my favorites:
    Maddie's spa experience (the girl with cucumber eyes...now I have the Beatles running through my head).
    Trevlyn face at the waterline.
    The dancer with fringe flying.
    And my ultimate favorite...Maddie's shadow across the chalk drawing.

    Beautiful photographs. Beautiful life.

  3. So green and lush. I had forgotten how green things get living in Arizona. Now that we are in D.C. for a bit, I am amazed at all the green. That is one huge pendulum. What fun you are having.

  4. I feel all summery warm gazing at these (even though I'm sitting by the fire on a cold day whilst gazing!). Such fun and I'm studying your photography very hard for tips on wrangling my unruly camera (just so you know lol...no pressure :))

  5. Oh, gosh, you don't want to study my work! :) The only thing I know about photography is that I know nothing about photography.
    I just know what I want to capture, and what pleases my eyes and heart.
