Project 365: Week 39

Posted by on Sep 29, 2013 in project 365 | No Comments

This week was a bit tricky.  I was without my favourite lens (it broke last week) for the first few days, until the replacement (upgrade!) arrived.  This left me with the long lens and the wide angle.  Interesting, but limiting!  Also it was dark and rainy for much of the week.  I’m making it a […]

Fall Camping – Part 2

There were a ton of different kinds of mushrooms!  We saw a bunch while hiking but also quite a few while wandering around our campground.  Also, bridges are fun. After we packed up our campsite, we made one last stop on the way home.  I love the giant cedars boardwalk, I remember it from when […]

Fall Camping – Part 1

We went camping near Revelstoke this week.  Did we have fun?  Let’s answer with a resounding “sort of!”  It was a bit cold in the morning for the girls, we didn’t get much sleep, and we (I) made some poor hiking choices resulting in much child carrying and sore backs for all.  However, we got […]

Sometimes you just gotta let them loose on the puddles.  Even if they don’t have any rain boots that fit.

These are the last of my photos from the long weekend.  My parents offered to babysit all three of their little granddaughters so that we could hike for the day.  I was very excited because a) Sunny won’t let us go on long hikes this summer, she wants to walk everywhere and disdains the carrier, […]

Intruder Alert!

So last week I was helping the girls find some clothes for the day when I saw a tiny lizard scurry past me on the floor.  I grabbed a container and scooped it up before Finnegan saw it (he is a mighty kitty hunter, and has brought me pieces of lizards as presents in the […]

Wedding at Blaylock’s Mansion

Posted by on Sep 15, 2013 in adventures | 2 Comments

These were taken the same day as the salmon run photos.  We attended a wedding at Blaylock’s Mansion, and while the photographers were taking a million photos of my uncle and his bride (and adorable daughter) I was chasing my family around with my camera.  Because that’s what I do.  And seriously, little girls in […]
