everyone likes a parade

  • Posted on September 4, 2012 at 4:25 pm

wovenflame and the realpukis started a parade on doa which has grown and looks to keep growing (or so we hope)
it has spread to a flikr group called dolls on parade and will be a gallery thread on doa as well, with all sizes a types of bjds joining in.

heres what happened today when the mid sized kids got involved….

tiera took it upon herself to announce to the world that there was going to be a parade
a parade

becca decided to be a tightrope walker and insisted that digory pull her in the wagon
the tightrope walker

ellyce is just back from the spa and fancies herself a trick rider. her steed being a typical donkey, was not terribly cooperative.

tiera and eilidh had a bit of a squabble when eilidh decided that she was a lion tamer and was going to tame tiera
im not going to be your lion
tiera – no i won’t be your lion, and you CERTAINLY are not going hit me with a whip!

eilidh – FINE! i’ll pull this “lion” instead.

bow glacier falls with digory

  • Posted on October 26, 2011 at 9:34 am

lunch break

today we decided to hike to bow glacier falls, an amazing hike. it was a cool drizzly day, the kind i like best for hiking in. just cool enough to not overheat, enough rain to be refreshing, and enough sun to not get more than damp. digory wore his new red sweater to keep warm. i need to make him a raincoat if we are going to go hiking often. but in typical boy fashion a little mud and water with no soap in sight just made it all the more fun!

the rocks were amazingly diverse, scattered across the valley where the glacier had advanced and receded long ago. the rocks mixed with iron oxide had rusty orange patterns, i nice change from the usual gray rocks found around here.

the water tumbled over the cliffs in large and small streams so we ended up hiking through the low creek beds which covered the whole valley.  i’m sure later in the season it is drier but fording the water on larger rocks was actually kind of fun.  it was challenging to find larger rocks on which to rest and look around.  we took advantage of the ones we found.

funky crocheted hats

  • Posted on October 16, 2011 at 9:16 pm

i’ve been busy making crocheted hats for the little ones. they might need to wear warm hats as the weather cools, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. we took a short trip to banff to see the fall colors and 4 of the kids came with me to show off some prototypes for a new line of hats i’m making

crystalorn frog princess
crystalorn loved the frog prince hat and said “its a frog princess!”

amberglas pretended to be a swamp creature rising out of the marsh

crystalorn and amberglas
when they quit giggling long enough the girls posed for this shot.

kiri, crystalorn and amberglas
then they climbed up with kiri so i could take a picture of all the girls, i think crystalorn was getting tired, ’cause she was getting really snuggly with her big sister

digory muppet hat
digory like the muppet style hat but didn’t want to be in a photograph with the “girls”. he says quinn needs a hat so the boys can hang out instead.

btw kiri and amber’s lovely new hoodies are from spampy’s stuff

there’s a hole in the forest dear cailyn, dear cailyn

“cailyn, look at this amazing hole!” digory exclaimed

“can i go down there?”

a bridge to nowhere

mossy rock bridge

a moss  covered rock forms a natural bridge in the woods

a bridge to nowhere

the only problem is the bridge leads nowhere and crosses nothing.

it’s a lovely bridge, none the less, one which we simply had to cross

i’m the king!

still looking for christmas trees

  • Posted on August 31, 2011 at 12:12 am

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.

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.)

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