Day 197

July 16, 2011

Blake has been begging to go fishing.  It’s the first thing he asks as soon as he wakes up in the morning.  We decided to drive up to Gross Reservoir.

I made Aaron stop to take pictures at the train tracks

I played a little bit with focal length.  These were taken at roughly the same spots using the same settings (I think I had to adjust the shutter speed down 1/3 EV on one picture.)



Second set up facing the other way on the tracks



for fun

Before I went back to the car I notices a RainbowWe had to hike down to the lakeBlake was excited to go fishing“fishhhh”Random wild flower

Day 187

July 6. 2011

Blake and I met Aaron for lunch and then headed over to Littleton Museum.  (here’s last time we went)

Not long after we got there it started raining but as the motto goes “wait 5 minutes and the weather will change.”  We were in an open field when it hit.  We raced toward the school house and holed up for a bit.  It wasn’t long before it was only a sprinkle and we made our way back to discovering the farm.

I love when he get this expression.  He’s just fascinated by all sorts of things.  Here it’s the sheep in their pen.A bird actually sat still long enough to take its picturePhoto & Video Sharing by SmugMugThis snake was practically posing for me on the fence.  The ones in our yard slither away very fastRain on the leavesThe lake.  If I had a fishing license and brought one of Aaron’s poles I never would have gotten Blake out of there.More water on leavesThe pregnant cowNo fair.  My sunflowers are no where near blooming.

One of Aaron’s best friend,Peter. had a party at his parents’ pond.  It was really fun way to spend the day!

There was a little shallow section separated from the main pond.  There we were able to explore the crawdads and tadpoles with out worrying about Blake going to deep.

Blake was amazed

A few people brought boats


I went for a walk and took some pictures

Giant sand piles

Peter’s dad took Blake out into the canoe.  He LOVED it
