Yesterday evening Dad, Casidy and I all headed down to the Skagit River for an evening of fun. They were going to fish. I was taking pictures. I'm not one that enjoys fishing, so I just decided that I'd go along for the ride and of course to take pictures!!! Thus I brought the camera and also a good book to keep me happy. So for about 45 minutes I just walked along the shore taking pictures of mostly leaves.  They kind of made a good subject matter. After taking 101 shots of these old leaves - I got pretty tired of that. I soon went into the jeep where I read Aesop's Fables until they were done fishing. So without further ado - here are the shots from last night. What do you think of them? Have a great Monday! :)

Isn't God's handy-work just incredible?

Our Trip to the Ocean

And of course we had to have the campfire!
Pretty Self Explanatory
This is one of the most artistic, unusual and beautiful things I've ever seen. It was all imprinted in the sand just waiting for its picture.
This one almost looks like a tree with the limbs stretching out.
I just love this one for some reason!
The view right before the ocean.
The wind was blowing so hard you could see the sand blowing
Go to the Light.....
Sunsets (how can one ever get tired of watching them?)
A lot of things that were totally unexpected happened to me on the first day of our trip! 1. I slammed my head while I was shutting the back hatch to the van. Guess that's what I get for being short. :P  2. While down at the beach a dog came up to the camera bag and did his business! Man I was SO MAD!!!  3. I can't fly a kite if the world depended on it. I couldn't ever get it to stay up. haha that was fun... 4. I got nailed in the face THREE TIMES by the kite all in  10 minutes. I lost an earring and my glasses came off. That was interesting. My Dad was flying it and yeah... I just seemed to always be in the wrong place at the wrong time, I guess.  Other then all of that, I had one wonderful time ! :) What do you think of the pictures?

Family Pictures

I didn't particularly care for the way these pictures turned out, but really the quality of these shots isn't what matters... the time that was spent together - the whole family was what I wanted to capture!

Trust me, there will be many more pictures to come!

A Day in Pictures (but what day isn't?)

You four were the most enthusiastic, sweetest and had the bubbliest personalities out of anybody I've ever met! I had great fun taking your pictures. Thanks for such a wonderful day. I must admit that the sun was a little harsh, but we did the best with what we had...

This photo was taken from the top of our garage roof. A new favorite place of mine!

Now I didn't get these shots out in the wild, obviously. I really wish I did though! Maybe one day....  I took these shots at our local fair.
