we done lots

The last few weeks we’ve been quite busy. That is in between our doctor and hospital visits for broken bones and corneal abrasions. Finally I am getting around to posting some fun stuff we did when Uncle Zeb was in town. First stop. The beach. I have to say, it was the most perfect weather day we have had all year. Perfect. However, I expected it to not be perfect, so I brought no bathing suits. Oops. Well, my kids fixed that problem pretty quickly. They are not shy about nudity that’s for sure. Last week’s Wordless Wednesday post with them in their skivvies is from this beach trip. We headed down to the tidepools in Laguna Beach to meet Jane and Alissa for the kids’ Spring Break Friday. First stop Johnny Rockets. Oh, and Jane, how do I not have a single photo of you except for the far away one of the beach?? Probably because you took most of these.

Zeb then proceeded to fall inlove with Orange County and Laguna Beach. How can you not? He also proceeded to learn a very valuable lesson in sunblock application. Ouch. Big Time.

I’m pretty good about not being paranoid and letting the kids explore and have fun(psssstt-someone has to be calm with Jane around). however, when Sawyer got up to the top of these rocks I never ran across coral and rocks with a twisted ankle so fast in my life. on the other side of this was just a sheer cliff into the water. I decided to stay and hang out with him up there until he was ready to come down.

LOVE the water reflecting off Sawyer’s face in the next one.

  4. Great photos! I have a question for you. What camera do you use? Have any of these photos been retouched, or photoshopped?
    It seems like you’re using a Canon…

  7. I really enjoyed the first two black and white photographs. The balance in composition and contrast was compelling.

  9. My name is Carol Davis and I’m a fellow blogger and photography intern for the Vasa Transmedia Project. The Vasa Project’s vision is to bring photographers and other visual artists together to share work, ideas, exhibition information, essays on photography and new media in a dynamic and interactive online environment called Vasa Transmedia. We want to invite you to contribute essays, personal work, reviews, etc. to the Vasa blog and essentially become a part of the Vasa Transmedia community. If you are interested we would appreciate you linking your blog to the Transmedia blog and we ask that you add us to your blog roll as well. Essentially our goal is to bring photographers, writers and visual artists under one umbrella. We would also like you to consider doing a gallery talk about your work sometime in the future.You can check Transmedia Blog out at the link below. You can post a request to the blog to be a contributor and we will get back to you with submission details.


    “Transmedia is a global networking project publishing the work of artists, theorists, critics and others on an international scale transcending traditional media categories. At a time when global networked communications are breaking down traditional concepts of space and time and moving beyond traditional forms of publication and networking, Transmedia, VASA’s Blogging Project, connects people to events and people to people. The Transmedia, blog will cover photography, video, sound, digital art and theory. Transmedia will focus on artists, writers and theorists from north, south, central America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.”

  10. I love your photography I am also a photographer so I will not ask you what camera you use. It is not the camera folks it is her talent that makes her photography so nice. If it were just the camera we could all do stunning photography, it is just a tool. After the doctor sets your cast on your broken leg, do you ask him what kind of plaster he used?
