We’ve finally hit a spot in our lives where we feel like we’re going to stick around for a while and not move. With my work I’ve always felt that moving was a part of the gig. This is our 3rd location in about 5 years, but I think we only have 1 move left. We put a deposit down on a new construction home and should be moving in by late October. We’ve picked the lot and the floor […]
April 13th was Victoria’s 6th Birthday! Her previous birthdays were mainly celebrated with family, but this year she had friends from school and wanted a party. We started the day off by walking to a nearby park that was hosting an Easter Egg Hunt. The park was sectioned off for each of the different age groups and thousands of eggs and candy were spread out in each area. Within each area there were 3 glitter eggs containing special prizes. Victoria […]
It’s been a while since we’ve taken a road trip so today we decided to drive a couple of hours down the highway to Twin Falls, Idaho. I took a quick trip there back in May, but the girls were in Thailand and missed out. I thought the girls would enjoy seeing Shoshone Falls and we needed a good excuse to get out of the house. We didn’t hit the highway until almost noon and arrived in Twin Falls around […]
It’s been a while since I set up an impromptu studio to take some photos of Victoria. We bought some fabric to use as a backdrop and then she tried on some of her Halloween costumes and ballerina costume to take some photos. They came out pretty well despite my flashes giving me a hard time by not staying on or responding to the wireless trigger. Victoria enjoyed it and I’m sure we’ll try again soon!
The other day the girls wanted to take a drive up the hills so we headed north up towards McCall. It’s about a 100 mile drive that winds along the Payette River. Unfortunately, both girls fell asleep about 15 minutes into the drive, but it was still a nice drive. I stopped a couple of times to take some photos and at one point Rotchana woke up so she could have her picture taken. She promptly fell asleep once we […]
Victoria started Kindergarten today. It’s her first day of school ever, and she was super excited to go. She had a great time and said she loved school! Hopefully that will continue for at least the next 12 years.
I finally have a week off of work to relax and catch up on everything that I’ve had to put off for another day. Technically I did go into work for an hour today and will have to go in tomorrow morning for a meeting, but I do have the next 7 days scheduled off. Needless to say it’s a very welcome time off. As much as I enjoy photography you would think I’d be taking a lot of photos […]
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Time seems to be flying by very quickly lately. It feels like it was yesterday that we were up in Tahoe visiting my friend Tim and his family. Victoria is growing quickly and continues to amaze us with her development. She’s about 6 1/2 months old now and is already standing up trying to take her first steps. Gates, bumpers and other safety devices have taken over our home in the hope […]
My friend Tim and his family, minus one daughter, came down from Washington to spend a few days at South Lake Tahoe. His daughter Melissa is turning 21 soon and chose the vacation. They rented a small house not far from the lake and had another longtime friend and her family stay with them. Rotchana, Victoria and I came up on their last full day there to visit. South Lake Tahoe is only about 100 miles from home so it’s […]
I received an invitation from my high school friend Tim that I’ve kept in touch with over the years. Last year I drove up to Washington to hike on Mt. Ranier with him and his son and one of his daughters. This year he applied for a permit to hike up to the summit of Mount St. Helens and wanted to know if I was up for it. I jumped at the chance and looked forward to the challenge. Last […]
