Cake Smash: Cyrus

For my second son I knew for sure I wanted to do a cake smash session for his birthday. He was  little hesitant at first but after a few minutes he dove in and enjoyed it. It was a little slow going, but a lot of fun to watch.

Sun Halo

The pictures of the sun halo were taken earlier this summer. It was the weirdest, coolest thing to see. I edited these 2 pictures differently. The bottom one is in HDR.

"Rings around the sun are caused by cirrus clouds -- high altitude clouds that form above 30,000 feet. Cirrus clouds form when water droplets condense around tiny mineral particles in the air, then freeze. The clouds appear to form a ring around the sun -- or the moon -- when light reflects off the ice crystals and refracts by passing through them." (ehow.com)

Year One: Cyrus

A year has come and gone for my little boy. It is insane how fast the time went. As a teenager I always hated the saying "time flies" since back then time didn't fly. But it's true, it flies. So fast. This year with Cyrus was the quickest yet. He's now talking and walking. It doesn't seem like it was already 13 months ago that he made his appearance into this world. Seems like just yesterday he was a little, helpless newborn and now he's developing into his own little person.
Here are some pictures I snapped on his Birthday (June 25th), I have yet to take "formal" ones.
Stay tuned for the Cake Smash pictures!

Putnam Park

Earlier this summer we ventured over to Putnam Park. We didn't even know about it till a few weeks prior while I was taking  a walk on the other side of the river and noticed a small waterfall.  Eau Claire is full of surprises!

Trilliums & A Morel

Some more photos from our camping adventure a few weeks ago.








Photo Contest

Today I entered a local photo contest; I decided to choose a picture from our camping trip at Perrot State Park. There were a few of the trillium pictures that I really liked and couldn't decide from. About a week ago, I placed my order for my contest photos, and then last night I realized that TODAY  at 4p was the deadline to have the photos in and I didn't even have my photos in my  hand yet! (some contest want a digital and a hard copy) So, after some thinking today (who am I kidding, texting a couple people), I called the place and they said that my order never went through. SO, I almost just said forget it, that maybe this was my sign from God that I shouldn't enter this contest this year. But I decided to go with it anyway, I quickly uploaded the pictures to Walgreen's 1 hour photo. They turned out decent considering where it was.  it's so hard to  have a printed picture look as nice as it does on the computer. But, I was pretty satisfied with how they looked once I got them matted
** fingers crossed!** I am kind of excited.

Here is 1 of the photos I chose that didn't print so well. I was disappointed.
( I don't want to post the actual photos I used, in case I shouldn't.)

Ontonagon River in the Spring

Whenever we head to the U.P. I make sure I have my camera, there are times it never comes out. But, the trip we made in April I made sure to snap some pictures since it was a nice Spring day and I hadn't been out in awhile.
