moose chronicles

I do not know if I am more excited about seeing the moose or that sun.  I am soaking it up and loving it.

frosty with a side of sunshine

Our temperatures have been so crazy lately but the sunshine is right on schedule.  I have been loving it.  Seeing it just makes me smile.

These two love to get out and explore…normally sniffing all the places other animals have been.  Oy Vey! Whatever makes them happy.

The higher temps have been melting Olaf but today he is showing some frost.

Cantwell adventures

I wanted to use my fisheye lens since I have had it for months now and have not really used it.  I like it but hate cropping off the black circle.  We ran into Sonya and the boys on our ride and I was excited for some subjects to photograph.  The boys seem to have fun too.

This is one of my favorites of the boys.  Their eyes are just gorgeous.

 He wanted a shot of him jumping.

 King of the mountain.

And last but not least a caribou.

the boys

Everyday the boys come down from their apartment and say hello.  Today they had little guys with them that they wanted pictures taken of.  I could  not convince them to put them down.  So, I improvised….and gave in too.

Car wanted a picture with the “perfect girl”. 

lunch date

There is no restaurant in our tiny town.  We miss eating out sometimes and so we took to the road for two hours one way to have lunch.  It was a beautiful drive.

 Do you ever look at yourself and think, “Wow….she’s old”?  I do not feel as old as I look but I am grateful for my age.  I am 43 years this year.  I have had a wonderful life.  I have a great dad, wonderful husband, great kids, wonderful daughter in law and three absolutely gorgeous grandchildren.  I can leave out family and friends.  That Bitz family is as close as it gets to being family without having our blood in their veins.  (they are the family you see in my pictures all the time)

Me trying to get a shot of all of us.  Unsuccessful attempt but somehow I still like it.
