Last attempt


My friend Tara and I found a fun photography idea while shopping the other day and I thought I would try it. This person used architecture and did some fun things with letters of the alphabet. So I thought I would try it out using the first letter of my last name. The picture is from the Capitol Theater sign when we were going to see Wicked. Did I mention I got to see Wicked yet? Sorry, I'm done. I also found a cool effect that I thought I would try. It's called ttv (through the viewfinder). It means taking a picture of any subject through the viewfinder of any camera with another camera. So this picture of mine is actually a texture that I found that makes it look like I did that but I really didn't. So, since April is almost over, here is my last attempt at being creative photographing architecture. Have a great day!

That was Wicked!







Finally after a year of waiting we got to see Wicked! It was amazing! I loved every minute of it! We had a great time with good friends too! I am also sharing my sad sad attempts at Carin's photo challenge for the month of April which is architecture. Oh well, I tried. We were in a hurry to get to our seats and I didn't really have the time I wanted to get some better pictures. Ya, that's it! But hey, I got to go see Wicked! I'm happy! We had an awesome day!

He's a sentimental man...and popular


Aidan has been sick the last couple of days so we have been trying to find ways to entertain ourselves. Last night he wanted to listen to my ipod. He also said he was cold and that means he puts a hat on. He is getting pretty good at the reading thing which means he can find what he wants to on the ipod SO I find him in his bedroom rockin' out to...get ready for it...the Wicked Musical soundtrack. He LOVES that soundtrack. I can't blame him either. It is awesome. This is where I get to get excited because Mike and I are going to see Wicked next Saturday! I am SOOOO excited! We have had the tickets for about a year! More to come on that evening. Aidan has been begging us to let him come with us. We told him maybe another time because you are still too young. Actually, when I took him to the pediatrician yesterday his doctor told me that he had just gone to see it. We spent a few minutes being excited about it. Aidan just wants to get in on all the action, as always.

Happy Birthday Mikey!

Today is Mike's birthday. And this weekend he went to ref lacrosse in Montana with his dad. I just wanted to wish him a happy birthday and tell him I love him and thank him for everything he does for me! You are awesome! Here is a picture I found of him and his dad reffing a game at Utah State. They sure love the game. It is really fun watching them ref also, especially together because they are so funny to watch and I think they do a great job. Happy Birthday Mikey! I sure love you!

Catching up

Hello my blog, how I have missed you! All two of you I'm sure know that we just bought a new house! We are SO excited and LOVE it!!!!!! So, because of that, and the fact that it took us a while to get everything set up with our internet at the new house, I haven't been on the computer for a while! We spent the whole time Aidan was off track painting, cleaning and moving but we still tried to get in some fun activities too! Some friends and I took the kids to Wheeler Farm while it was about 60 degrees outside. We had tons of fun! So, Aidan is back in school after being off track (hallelujah shout right here) and I thought I would post some pictures. Pictures of the house will be coming soon whether you want them or not. Have a great stupid snowy day.
