Last week the boys were out of school for spring break, this week Sasha is out from preschool. It is the end of April and it has snowed every day this week at my house. The creek on the golf course has awesomely flooded and we still have more storms lined up. With all that going on.. tell me why I need a break for spring? Josh's daily comment is, "this is getting old!" I have to agree. The garden calls to me daily asking for a good racking and spring cleaning and then it gets a dusting of snow making it impossible. Big Sigh!
This wonderful little dude came to visit me from northern Idaho for his spring break. I have photographed his brother and sister all at 18 months and they needed to complete the set. Needless to say, I am totally honored. 18 months is a fun stage and for a photographer, it is the time to be fast and furious because the giggles come easy and laughter fills the air. But those giggles become tired quickly and nap time can not be messed with at this age. This cutie was an angel and couldn't have been better behaved. I loved every minute.
Thanks so much S for making this tradition so important. I really can not believe it's been 10 years! I hope your trip to Utah was filled with wonderful memories and I hope this was one of them. Collect 12 comments on this blog and I'll include the mini accordion album when you orer your matching wall portraits. I am so honored to be a part of your life, thank you!
We did manage to enjoy a casual spring break trip with the kids down to southern Utah. Spring Break has become our traditional time to expose the kids to all that Utah has to offer. We actually spent 2 nights in Hanksville, Utah and then journeyed over to Bryce Canyon before heading home. (For those of you who have driven through Hanksville and enjoyed Stans Burger Shack on the way to Lake Powell... Yes, we spent 2 nights at the Whisper Sands Motel... which I lovingly refer to as the Tuff Shed motel.) So much to do in the area we could have stayed at least 2 more nights. We would have camped but those darn temperaturs just wont warm up! Anyway, we introduced the kids to Little Wild horse Narrows, which they loved! The last time I hiked Little Wild Horse was on my spring break senior year of highschool... just wanted to mention that for those high schoolers that follow since I know those were good memories.
Here is my quick image of Bryce Canyon which is about the easiest place in the world to get a good landscape image.
This is Will and Josh on their bikes in front of the Henry Mountains.. pretty cool!
Next week I will be a featured artist at the Jeremy Ranch Elementary Spring Art Festival. So much work! I'll fill you in with pictures of the art I have been teaching in the boys school too. If you are local and plan on having a portrait made this year, I will be handing out half price session coupons in my photography booth if you want to stop by anytime Friday, April 29th between 4-7 pm. Free art projects for the kids and you can support the local artists as well as the arts in our childrens schools. Wish me luck!
