Trip Out West

We recently said goodbye to the newlyweds after a brief visit home to gather some of their belongings.  They left on Thursday and made it to the Grand Canyon Saturday afternoon.




They took turns driving.


They saw lots of other interesting sights along the way.

Resourcefulness. Before and After.

Two pictures to demonstrate Phil's resourcefulness. He's trying everything he can to figure out how to get to his precious "OUTSIDE" by himself. Today's attempt:




And here's his gleefully triumphant face after he succeeded:



I can see my next project is to reupholster that chair. :/

Are You Happy Now? ;)

I recently had a complaint that I haven't updated the blog in a long time... you know who you are  ;)  ... so I'm throwing a little bone along with an apology. Besides feeling like I'm drowning under my responsibilities and having a one-year-old menace to chase, I've also been missing a camera or two. And a cell phone. My memory is at an all-time low. Anyway, no pictures, no blogging. Simple as that.

Andy recently took a trip out west to visit our 2nd son and his bride, and he purchased a camera out there, which was promptly regifted to me as an early birthday present.  It's already been two weeks, and I haven't lost it yet.


 




Speaking of the Menace...

He used to be so easy to photograph! Now, whenever  he sees a camera, he dashes toward it.  It's hard to capture him doing whatever you wanted a picture of.  Anyway, the new camera has a feature called Color Pop, which highlights only the desired color - red, blue, green or yellow.  Here's the Bandit with a yellow filter:






























And here are the girls with a blue filter:






























Noelle has the braids.



And Regina, last but not least.
