Hi all- this week I decided to highlight some pictures of my daughter and mom during her visit to Colorado for the last two weeks. We had great walks, fun with chalk, splashes in the water, yummy Starbucks frappes (theirs were non coffee) and fun with all of her toys. Some things NOT caught by the camera? Walking down the stairs like a BIG girl and my daughter swatting my hands so grandma could push the buggy through Target.
We were sad to see her go, BUT we have lots of pictures to remember her until next time!

While I admit my shutter noise can be loud in a quiet room for this week I was willing to risk waking her.
So, for my first lifestyle friday: here is what naptime looks like
Sometimes I find new locations when I am not even looking. On the way to Target this week I spotted a dogpark/open space I had never noticed before. I quickly pulled in, grabbed my camera and trusty helper, and set up to get some quick snaps. Beautiful mountains in the backdrop, oh and Elmo insisted on coming along as well 😉
I will take any opportunity to take out my camera for a few shots. So when Chloe began slurping her whipped cream at Starbucks I put down my iced latte and began snapping away. This was a well deserved treat … Continue reading →
