Sweet Summer Escape

Summer has arrived so I am sharing the photos I took this weekend while relaxing at the nature center.  I decided to go very early in the morning to have some quiet time to myself.  We all need a little time alone at times! Sometimes life can get too busy so it helps to reconnect with nature and our Creator.  Here I was surrounded by varying sounds of insects, birds, butterflies, bees and a shy bunny that crossed my path.  I had the place entirely to myself  – a real treat. Later some runners and couples arrived, yet it remained quiet.  No radio, no TV,  no cellphone. Yes, I lowered that too. Try it sometime! reflection.snpnat.cntr.snpant.flwr.snp1043930_170168529828689_29575866_nflower.snp

Super Moon Lights The Sky Tonight!

Last night I went out to photograph this beautiful, mysterious “super moon” as it’s called. I noticed I wasn’t the only one with the camera!  If you have not viewed it yet, try do so tonight. Apparently it is the largest and closest full moon of this year. It will be the moon’s closest encounter with earth and will appear larger and brighter than usual. This presents a great opportunity for you to view and/or take photos of this celestial phenomenon.  I will be looking out tonight to see if the Sunday full moon appears larger than last night. Should be interesting to see if I notice a difference. The moon rise is this evening  so happy moon gazing everyone!Full moon.June.snp

Splash! Nemo Pool Party

This weekend we had had loads of fun at my little cousin’s 1st birthday  party. Everyone had a grand time playing fishy games at the kiddie pool, throwing beach balls, or just squirting an unsuspected guest. I had to run for cover a few times, concerned my camera would get soaked.

The birthday boy slept much of his birthday and looked so cute with his Nemo swimming gear. After much playing in the sun everyone enjoyed a delicious BBQ.  Later that night guests had popcorn, cotton candy, cupcakes, cake pops, sea themed cookies, chocolate fondue with fruits, etc. The treat table was total eye candy….literally!  Later we were asked to take the centerpieces home and the children couldn’t be more excited. The table centerpieces were pretty fish bowls containing happy, bright goldfish that guests willingly took home that night. Congrats to Karen & Manny ….. your little Nemo was the cutest, roundest little fish there. fishbwl.snpSweetbaby.snptabletreatscotton.spin.snp
