Colour and Creativity

I messed up on the weekend.   I'm dwelling on it which I shouldn't.    We can't be perfect.     I should just let it go.   I was asked to help take photos but things changed and that type of photo wasn't needed.   So after prepping myself all the day before and dreaming all night about it I was thrown.   Just take photos of what's going on with people and kids!!!! What about all the legal issues of photos with kids in them!!!!   You can't take pictures of your kids at the school in some places!!! All I have been doing for months is taking photos of cows,  and baby lambs,  and tractors!!!!    My brain didn't make the switch.    I couldn't get creative.   I didn't get the mojo happening until the last hour.     So yes there are a few good photos but ..........   (if only/do over)  
So today I needed a break.    My Owen just wanted to run.   So we headed to a park and he ran, played, giggled, squealed and smiled.   While I  pushed myself to find things in the park and make them interesting.    Without taking photos of other peoples kids.   I did take photos of my kid but I''ll put them up another time.

Easter Weekend

flew by.   We got the garden ready.    Kids had lots of plays with friends.   Eric got to play with friends and 4Wd's!!   I took photos for a Easter Event.    But I forgot to take one photo of my own kids Easter hunting!!!   See the struggling to do things right hit!!!    So some photos of spring for you.

and I guess that's a good thing.   When you are too busy and tired at the end of the day to blog.     Don't know if I'm okay with all of it I'm struggling to juggle it all.  I've noticed  things this week have been done to only half the level they should be and I'm beating myself up about it.   Like Owen's photos below:  playing hard,  working hard and then collapsing in awkward positions may not be the best thing.   But as they say move on tomorrow is another day and you can start fresh and  correct what isn't working.

Hanging Spoons

A good dinner finished off with everyone trying to hang spoons off their noses.    Only puggy little noses worked.  (sticky fingers may have helped!!)    Or lots of sticky tape on Ciara's part but she wouldn't let me take a photo.    Then she all made us laugh as she ripped the tape off fast and then went oooh!! that hurt!!

Around Kamloops today

I saw this on a sign post today when I was down town in Kamloops.   Don't know what it is for but it is bright and cheerful on a overcast day.

Beautiful Sun after the rain

 Reflections in the rain drops off the deck.
 Green leaves sprouting on the bushes
 Water droplets on the tulips
 Flowers starting to bloom
 Lilac bushes starting to sprout purple loveliness!!
 More leaves emerging from bushes with sunlight bouncing.
Even the fall leftovers look interesting in the morning sun.

That was Saturday morning.   It's Sunday morning and it's snowing!!!!!

using Owen for a model in a relaxed setting.     Oh course he's saying talk to the hand mom.   I'm done.

Saturday the whole family came with me to adventure while I was photographing a great new farm.    So bikes,  a picnic, soccer balls and rubber boots (gumboots) where thrown in the car and off we went.   It was a chilly day but we had fun exploring and enjoying green grass again.

It's great when you can show your kids why you have to have flat palms when feeding a horse.   See those teeth Owen!!!

Honour Roll

Term 2 and on the honour roll again.     Here in BC they divide it into 3 terms.  Australia was 4 and I don't know about the rest of Canada.    So here's hoping the last term stays the same.    And hoping we get the same teacher next year.    She just loves him.

looked like this and was a great morning of photo taking.   Today has gorgeous deep blue skies and clouds and I wish yesterday had looked like today so some of those photos would be more awesome!!!   But no taking photos today as it is an early dismissal day at school and things couldn't be worked around it.    Cross your fingers for the next three days to look like this as I'm busy busy busy for the next three days.

Hubby doing a presentation

Kind of neat to see the hubby doing his thing.    Because he works in mining we usually can't go and see what he is doing because of the natural of the job.    So it was nice to see something I only imagine.
