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.

Down Memory Lane

Since I was about 14 years old I started saving all birthday cards, Christmas cards, postcard, poems and letters that I have received from family and friends.

Today I was going through one of the boxes and came across some postcards that my uncle sent to me back in 1981 when he was traveling the world with the US Air Force.

But the most heart warning thing I found were 2 cards that my kids gave me. One was for my birthday and the other one was just because.

This card was for my 34th birthday and it says that I am over the hill!  Since I am now 51 what does that make me? 😆😆

And this card was just because.

A Photographer in the Making

This little angel here had a bad day at school today.  He did not get his way so he made sure no one else did either.  After dealing with his mother and a few moments in time out.  He asked if he can take some pictures.  I started to say no because of the behavior today but decided to see what he can do.

The first image is one I took while showing him how to keep one eye open so he can look in the viewfinder.   The rest are all his.

Do we have a budding photographer here?

Keeping one eye open

 

He gave me instructions on how to pose.  He told me to do some of the same things that I say to him.

 

We thank youu for visiting!

Let Go My Lego!

Today I treated Arai to a set of Legos.  He has been having some rough days in daycare where he does not want to listen.  He prefers to do his own thing when he wants to do it regardless of what the teachers say.  So I tried to give him a little bribe so off to Walmart I went to find something special.  I know that he loves to build things so I got him a Legos a set.  This set has 583 pieces.

It kept him and Caila busy for 4 hours working to assemble the pieces.  I should have bought this a long time ago!  Another set is on his Christmas list.

Here are a few things that they built.

Arai with his castle that he designed all by himself! Such the proud young man.

 

This set included pieces to make these special projects.

Caila enjoyed herself as much as Arai did, she even said that she wanted a set for herself.

 

As always thanks for visiting!
