We are kinda happy summer is in full swing around these parts. Bring on the sun, water, boating, trips, hiking, and all the other fun adventures it brings! We have SO much going on this summer it seems! I thought last year was busy with Europe and all, but I think we may have it beat this year. We've got a few trips planned up to the house in Island Park, along with that comes trips hopefully to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone - places which were practically my backyard growing up! I'm also planning on introducing the in-laws to Mesa Falls, a place they didn't know existed, let alone was so close to the house until I told them about it a few weeks ago. Maybe I can even get them to swing up to Targhee on our way to/from Jackson...hopefully the hubs and I can make a trip up there this winter so he can experience my old stomping grounds (I may or may not have skipped school to go boarding up there a sometimes during high school, just sayin'). Then, we're also lining up a cruise to the Eastern Carribbean (aka Virgin Islands), and then there's always the usual weekend escapes to Park City. To top it all off, Mike's in school for summer semester, and I've got the usual photo shoots going on, girl's dates, etc. So, I guess we're staying pretty busy!
Okay, enough talk, on to a few photos. :)
We tagged along with Sabrina to help with the Kiddos while she did pictures for Ben's birthday coming up. And by kiddos, I mean Nate.
This kid LOVES his Uncle Mikee, or 'Kikee", as he calls him. When he sees me without Mike, he comes running up to me and goes, "Kikee? Kikee?" and when I tell him he's home, he goes, "Oh. Kikee? Kikee??". That kid can't get enough of Mike. I think Mike's pretty fond of him too. ;-)
Typical Nate...running the OPPOSITE way when his Mom tries to get him to stand still for two seconds to get a shot in.
Typical as well. Mike with the kids close behind. I love how he loves kids so much! I can't wait to see what he'll be like as a Dad when that day comes.
The Supermoon the night before Easter.
I went up to Sundance with a close friend of mine on a girl's day photowalk, and this guy was sitting on the ground, and was content to let me get REALLY close and snap away for a few minutes. I was seriously only about 3 feet away. I could have gotten closer, but I didn't have a macro lens on, dang it!
Few things stop me in the middle of my tracks, this was one of them. I don't know why, but I loved it and the feelings it evoked in myself. Can I just say I'm proud to have Cherokee heritage? (My great-great grandfather was full-blooded, I'm 1/8.)
Anyway, that's what's been happening around these parts! Ciao!
