A giant threat, the likes of which they had never seen before invaded their quiet peaceful farm. As the farmers fled they opened up the gates with the hopes that their animals would run to safety.....
But it was too late. The animals in all their speed were just too slow for such a threat as they encountered. More animals ran. It was a fear they had never known.
Grasping hands tried to help the poor animals...Finally the beast released his grip on the animals and let them all go. Dinosaur control came to help the farmers and the beast was captured. The beast now lives on a Dino preserve west of the county. Security is tight, however it is believed the giant beast has escaped. He was last seen headed to a small cow/calf operation in the area. Be on the lookout and call security if you see the beast. Please call 1-800-NO-DINOS for any report on his whereabouts.

We were driving through town the other day checking on fall color and just killing time. We drove past the capitol and looked at the many statues there. Then we drove past a replica of the Liberty Bell. A conversation ensued from there:

So, is a baby pushing his arm through a shirt sleeve insignificant? I think not!

Who is this boy? I was looking at these photos from a photoshoot we did a couple weeks back. When I took the pictures he certainly was my 7 year old boy. But now, looking at these photos, it is like he is someone else. A boy older than he really is.He is confident, caring, funny, eager to learn, eager to please. He seems like a young man sometimes with the things he says or does. Though he loves to play with his friends, pretend and generally goof off so I know he is still a boy.
What happened to that little boy I brought home from the hospital so many years ago? The one I toted over and over again to the doctor? The little toddler learning to walk? That little boy of mine on his very first day of school? There is no stopping these kids from growing up, is there? And really, I wouldn't have it any other way. Each day is a journey, something new. I suppose tomorrow he will be filling out college admission forms....

My middle boy liked the idea of being on Gramma's side.
My oldest boy is always one to stay on his dads side. He asked "who does Dad like?" We told him McCain and that is when he decided to make his own sign... Pro McCain!
Would you look at these boys! My oldest is so happy that he made a sign for his dad. And that grin on Lineman pretty much says it all. As for my middle boy? He switched sides to be with his dad. Not sure, maybe Lineman is raising republicans.

And I just love this little belt. It went through the 1st go 'round with our oldest boy. Then the 2nd go 'round. Now it looks like it is ready for the 3rd go 'round. The belt is surely in the running for the winner of the all around. It does more than just look good, too. It can make a wonderful toy on a Sunday morning, or anytime for that matter. Plus, it drives the girls crazy. And by girls - I mean me. The buckle on the other hand, it seems to be losing some steam. I guess if it doesn't make it I'll just take his dad's buckle and put it on there.... that would be a site!

Okay, so maybe not. However, that is how it all began in this intriguing world of photography.
Actually, I fondly remember my 110 film camera my parents bought me. I remember pulling out the film and carefully winding it up. Eager to shoot 24 pictures and have them developed.
Things have changed. So has my photography. I shoot with an incredible Nikon and with digital I take hundreds and hundreds of photos each month.
Today I am introducing my new blog site. It is my photography blog. I am starting out on a new adventure. A joy. A love. A passion. Join me if you will.
A link is also located at the top right of the screen.

This last picture is me wedging myself and the backpack for one beautiful picture. Sorry about that, but we thought it was pretty funny trying to wedge that backpack through. Don't say I didn't warn you about me being in a picture!
I told the boys to roll up their jeans so they could walk in the water and not get wet.
Yeah, so much for rolling up the jeans so they don't get wet. You would think I know my boys better than that by now. Actually, my oldest boy slipped on a rock and my mom caught it just as it happened.
That is the Hidden Falls behind the boys. I walked back there too and that water was ccccccold. I would like to go back in the early part of summer to see just how big the falls can get.
Yeah, the boys stayed really dry didn't they? And there is my awesome mom with the little man. Ah, a moment between grandparent and grandchild (Translation: Ah, a moment for mom to catch her breath for two seconds before she is ripped in twenty other directions simultaneously).
On the return trip it ended up raining on us. At first I was trying to jog to get back to the Suburban until I realized how refreshing the raindrops felt. Also, the jogging was tending to wake my passenger. Here he is before the rain started.
Boy doesn't that look comfortable? We don't have any pictures of us soaking wet because it was really raining by the time we finished up and we were eager to just crawl inside the Suburban. Great time all in all!
