signs of spring

Sometimes you just have to look for it. Granted, with it already getting up into the high 80's here, it definitely feels like spring, but I ventured out into the back yard to see if the red-bud was blooming yet and sure enough, it is!




I shot a wedding this past weekend. The centerpieces on the tables at the reception were fishbowls. I thought that was different, pretty cool, kinda bizzare. My six year old was at the reception with me and she was tickled when she found out she'd get to bring some fish home. She named them - Romeo and Rachel. "Can we go buy some fish food?" she asked me. I told her if they were still alive in the morning, I would think about getting some fish food. Well, Rachel was dead in the morning, but Romeo is still around. Yeah, I bought some fish food, and a more suitable tank (3 gallon). We'll see how long he lasts.


rodeo ferris wheel

My favorite shot of the day, and one of the last ones before we left. My son did not want to go on the ferris wheel. It was a windy day and he does not like the wind. He explained to me that if we rode it, the higher up we got, the windier it would get. Smart boy. I couldn't argue with that logic.

Field trip!!!

This was interesting...(not real bones, but pretty cool just the same).

horse tails

I wasn't too sure what was educational about this, except maybe you could feel their tails without the danger of getting kicked.


No snow or ice in TX, but that doesn't mean we can't go skating!

Well, the kids went skating. Their first time (they did great!). I have been informed that they want to do this every week now.

My pictures all turned out kinda funky, so I had to do a lot of editing, so I will have to do some research and figure out what I did wrong. I think it had something to do with the UV filter on the lens and the flourescent WB setting.
