Oh, what do you do in the summer time...

The more I do, experience and see the more full my life becomes. I have had some crazy adventures so far this summer. These first pictures were taken at Ann Morrison Park after the Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival the weekend of the 4th. Look at what these young artist can do.

These next pictures were from the elementary age division.

I had a Picnic with the IEC girls that I have the pleasure to work with. Since we work with glasses we thought it would be fun to take some pictures with our Shades.

A Little bit of everything...

Adventures of the summer.
This summer I decided to seize the moment, day or maybe just the weekend. So to start off the adventures I went to Sun Valley in May for a work retreat. The following weekend I headed South to meet Simon (his newly discovered Auntie)! Look at this sweet baby!

At the end of June-Heather(my bff & roommate), Liberty(her dog) and I went on a road trip. Shoshone Falls and the Malad River Canyon.

The weekend of the 4th I went back to Utah for Simons blessing. Its amazing how fast the little ones grow. He had grown and was starting to show his personality he even has a sweet little dimple. The weekend was full of fun and adventure. I got a new lens for my canon, the 50m f1.8. It is so sweet I loved it instantly. As a family we went to Xango at Thanksgiving point. I always wanted to go to a dino museum. It was almost as good as Night at the Museum. Unfortunately Rex did fetch his bone when I threw it. Silly dinosaur.

Pictures and memories

I took the picture of this rose during my adventure of living with my faternal grandpa. Grandma worked so hard to cultivate a beautiful yard, and it was amazing-lilacs, tuplip, roses, to huge vegtable garden. After living at the house for over a year I don't know how she did it. Working full time as a nurse in the NICU while taking care of a house, grandpa, a huge yard and garden, and also finding time to visit her grandkids and sew. What a lady! I miss you grandma.

Bryce this one is for you. I miss you tons. Hope life is good in Alaska.
