On The Water

Just wanted to post a few more Bear Lake photos. The kids had so much fun playing in the water and sand.

I love going on the boat and taking pictures of the kids riding.

Even I went out for a ride.

From the Beach

We returned from our trip to Bear Lake one week ago yesterday and I haven't posted any images which some might find amazing. It turns out, I just had TOO many other pictures to get ready for others that I didn't have time to do much with the pictures I took last weekend until now. So, today, and in the next few days to come, I will post a few from our trip. The weekend we spent in Bear Lake wasn't really that warm. Part of each day seemed to have wind, rain, or a mixture of the two.

Today's theme is "The Beach." It was actually quite cold when we first arrived at the beach. So if you see goosebumps, you'll know why. It warmed a bit throughout the day, but if the sun ever went behind a cloud you about wanted to grab a jacket.

Yes--he is eating sand. Please remember from this post that I would prefer not to know all the disgusting things that are found in sand.

Bear Lake probably has the best sandy beaches in Utah for building sand castles and playing in. (I am sure the diehard Lake Powell fans will probably claim it has good beaches, too, but when we were there, they didn't really stand out to me.) Thanks Aaron for living so close to a great lake and great sandy beaches!!

Babies just ooze adorableness and this little baby was no different. I took these pictures a few weeks ago of my niece's baby and have been dying to share them but with everything going on it took me longer than I thought to get them up. Is there anything better than new baby cuteness?

14 Months and Counting

I just had to share these 2 images of my little boy. He LOVES anything with buttons but like most 14 month olds he is especially enamored with the phone.

And--he still has the cutest, chubbiest baby feet. I just love chubby baby feet. And don't ask me what that yellow stuff in the picture is, because it is probably part of a chewed up stick. And, since I am just trying to ignore what he puts in his mouth right now, please do not bring attention to the fact that the grasshoppers probably chewed on it first right after the ants pooped on it (do ants poop? I really don't want to know that either.) I just try to ignore everything that goes into his mouth and hope he lives until he's 2 instead of dying of Grasshopper Flu. Never heard of that? Well, I am sure that important scientists will discover it soon! Boys--what's a mom gonna do?

We are back from Bear Lake, but I have been too busy with pictures and getting kids ready for school that I haven't been able to post. So, I just wanted to share one image from our trip.

I am guessing that you noticed that it is out of focus. I did that on purpose. I love the bokeh (or the little blurry circles) that the reflecting water creates. Sometimes out of focus is more interesting that in focus!!
