we went up to the kananaskis lake to take some pictures and the girls found a perfect spot to set up a lemonade stand. amberglas figured all the hikers would be thirsty when they got back. crystalorn said since no one else was selling snacks, they could make a fortune. now if only they had some lemons…….

still looking for christmas trees

this ones not very big
digory is determined to find a christmas tree to take home, even though it is still summer! he’s convinced if he can just find the right one i’ll let him sneak it out of the park. he scrambled up on this log to inspect the tree growing out of its top.

i said we could just take a picture instead.

can we take THIS one

spying another he exclaimed “this one is not very big, can we take THIS one?”  to his great dismay i had to refuse.

cliffs are made for peering over

over the edge

in typical little boy style, digory fearlessly climbed a cliff and lay on his belly so he could look over the edge

whats down there

i used a zoom lens to photograph him from below.

photo shoot at wedge pond

  • Posted on August 20, 2011 at 9:19 pm

we got up really early this morning (5:30 am! i didn’t know the day could start that early! :lol:) to go on a field trip for my macro photography course. amber and crystal agreed to come along as models – though they slept in the car the whole way there. as a consequence they were much more awake than i was.
the lake was mirror smooth and formed an almost perfect double image.
mirror, mirror
the girls posed on a rock in front of the lake. i think amber might have still been a bit sleepy.
wedge pond
next time they want jackets, hats and mitts though, as it was COLD at that time of the morning.

new flowers in my garden

  • Posted on August 19, 2011 at 7:29 am

passing my garden and casually making note of the weeds to pull, i was astonished to see something strange poking out of my flower bed

face in the flowers
another little face

up popped two little girls
wildflowers
surprise! they cried. we’re back to stay

what we found in the woods today

100steps
beezie and i went exploring in the woods. she climbed up this bush to get at the ripe buffalo berries.

200steps
peeking over every log and under every bush, but she wouldn’t tell me what she was looking for…

mushroom or toadstool?
maybe under here?

newcomer
spying a glimpse of blue beezie pulled back a leaf to find an unusual seedpod

checking this out
beezie snuck in for a closer look. “you’re exactly what i was looking for!”

greeting the newcomer
smiling, the stranger climbed out of her pod

smidge says hi
hi, i’m smidge. can we be friends?

found a mushroom
of course beezie said “yes!” so off the new friends went exploring together..

mossy trunk
they found many wonderful things

giant toadstool
then rested together on a giant toadstool

it is just the start of many wonderful adventures together….

digory and the bridge 2
there’s just something cool about looking off a bridge, i was really happy with the varied textures in this shot.

(digory just wanted to jump in and was quite upset that i wouldn’t let him.)

digory and the bridge
i love the way the sunlight sparkles on the water in this shot.

blowing kisses

blowing kisses

noni and beezie blow kisses to their friends. they’ve been exploring the garden and beezie found a bee-yu-ti-ful flower. don’t let her demure look fool you, i had to bribe her to wear a dress and even then she adamantly refused to take off her goggles!

digory’s skateboard goes everywhere

digory's skateboard

digory loves his skateboard so much he takes it everywhere. we dragged it up the mountain on our hike and he tried to ride it on the rocks.  rather a bumpy ride i think, but he didn’t care.
