The Works

As you know, yesterday was July 4th, Independence Day here in the USA.  Most people go to or host a Barbecue, go to a parade or both.  I went to a barbecue and after all the good food had a chance to settle (you always over eat at BBQ’s) it was fireworks time.

Here are a few of my attempts to capture the awesome fireworks display.  Some of them I held the shutter open to long, others not long enough, and some were just right.

Here are some of the better ones.

Can We Get 100?

Arai watches videos on YouTube that kids made and he wanted to make one. So being the Mom-mom that I am, I helped him with the video.  I got the cellphone and started recording. I apologize for the sound quality next time I will use the camera.

Please click Walking the Planks (it will take you to YouTube) and like his video.  If you like Ara’s video leave words of encouragement so he will continue wanting to make videos.

All comments will need to be approved by me before they are posted to YouTube.  Can’t let the mean folks leave their rudeness on his video.

Thank you in advance for your support of Arai’s Video and visiting my page!

When you get the shot!

My grandson Arai
does not like when i make his pictures black and white, he thinks it makes him look old.


This was at my daughters house and he was surprised that he  captured a shot of her dog,  Dash.

Quote of the Day

“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”
by Ralph Hattersley

 

 

These two here are always fussing.  You would never believe that one is 11 and the other 4.  They argue as if they are the same age.  I tell Caila all the time “Why are you having an argument with a 4-year-old?”.  She never has an answer.

I like how I was finally able to capture a peaceful moment between them without being directed to “be nice”.

 

As always, thanks for visiting!

Field Station: Dinosaurs

I first heard about Field Station Dinosaurs about 2 years ago.  So today my family and I decided to go and check it out.  The reviews online were so so but I took the chance any way.  I am glad that I was not influenced by some of the reviews.

Field Sation: Dinosaurs is a good place to visit and perfect for children 8 and under and adults who are still children at heart.  We had a GREAT time.

Here are just a few pictures.

Scientists believe that the horn on the Parasaurolophus made noise so that it could alert others of danger, mating, and possibly when it was in pain.

 

There are things for the kids to do for additional fun, some cost extra money and others do not.

I hope you enjoyed the dinosaurs and as always, thanks for visiting!

 

Fun in the rain

My photograph of Arai playing in the rain (click the link to see more) was  selected to be in the local newspaper, Courier-Post, for one of this weeks featured photos.  Hundreds of photos come in each week and I am honored to be chosen.

Happy Easter!

Rainbow Colors

Let’s Just Blow Bubbles

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just blow bubbles,
For no good reason
Let’s just blow bubbles,
Laugh a little, watch them disappear
Not even wonder where.
Smile and touch the rainbow colors
Watch them float in the air.
No reason why–
No goals, no structure.

SOMETIMES . . .
Let’s just
blow bubbles.

Security

Lately my grandson has been watching his shows on my iPad under the security of his blankets, covers or whatever he can find to be alone.
