Kally at play

Kally was on the prowl but took some time out to roll in the gutter and then back to the hunt


Aaron was playing with the camera and with a little cropping got this shot. The tulip photo is uncropped.

Happy Birthday Mom

Just wanted to wish a very special Mom a Happy Birthday. Thanks Mom for all you do and thanks for being you. We all love very much. Aaron, Jenna, Arthur and Gerrie

They are raising the roof.

Arthur's sister Carol and her husband are raising the roof literally. Work is under way to make their storey and a half home into a 2 storey one. We drove by yesterday and Aaron used the new camera in sports mode to take lots of shots. Here is just one.

Never thought of myself as much of a Rebel

Never thought of myself as much of a Rebel but now I own a Canon EOS Rebel XS 10.1MP DSLR Camera. I traded in my point and shoot digital and received an extra $50 off the sale price.
The deciding factor was not being able to get any pictures of Jenna's skating carnival with my other digital. It kept saying change the batteries, because the battery door was not closing properly. I had already investigated having it repaired but it would cost $100 just to look at it.
I looked at the point and shoot cameras and then found the Rebel on sale so decided to go for it.
Now I have an excuse and the time with my new job, to take a photography course I always wanted to take.

Easter treats

We looked in the states for some different Easter treats and found Kit Kats with bunny ears on them, and Snickers, Milky Way and York Peppermint Patties wrapped in pastel coloured foil.
They looked good enough to eat on our Easter treat tray we took to a family Easter party.
It was much more fun to put together than our traditional tray of secret recipe brownies.

Kaleidascope of colour

Outside one of the shops in Frankenmuth we found a Kaleidascope. Turn the floral basket and look through the lens. It was pretty amazing to see. Aaron thought these would make wonderful placemats if we would laminate prints.

What a glorious weekend

The weather was perfect and we had 4 days to spend time together. Who could ask for anything more? Here are just a few pics of our time in Frankenmuth.
