It’s been a particularly scrappy month- yay!
I figured out a way to paste a background behind the girls studio portrait- love how it turned out!

One of Beth and Carissa’s group tap dances this year was to the Chris Brown song, Yeah 3X. They came on stage in all black outfits and start the dance doing cool hip-hop moves, then they rip off all of the black clothes to reveal their nerdiness underneath- high water pants, mismatched socks, suspenders, bowties and of course black rim glasses. It was a very fun dance choreographed by Amy Gard for the group.

journaling: It stunk when my beloved Nikon D50 was stolen at the end of January. We researched cameras and once again decided to go with a Nikon. It’s been interesting learning to use the D3100- it’s similar to the D50, but not. There are a lot more options and the pictures are twice as big. I’m still figuring things out, but yeah, it was good to upgrade. I really miss that Tamron lens though.

journaling: After the sand and heat of The Great Sand Dunes National Park, the nearby hike to Zapato Falls after lunch was just what we needed to cool off. It was uphill and rocky and the last part was actually walking in the cold mountain stream on slippery rocks. The sound of the waterfall made it almost impossible to speak to each other. It was a refreshing hike.

I was very excited last summer to be able to finally see the Collings Foundation WWII airplanes when they made a stop in Colorado.

journaling: It happened in minutes- the winds kicked up and the Waldo Canyon Fire jumped the ridges of Queen’s Canyon and raced down the hill towards the homes on the west side of Colorado Springs. The smoke rolled down the mountainside too and filled the city streets giving everything an eery orange glow and making it hard to breathe. The smoke was even blown all the way across town to our house. We were glued to the live newscasts all evening, watching the fire move down towards the city and start burning houses. Even though our house was in no danger, it still made us stop and think about what we would do, where we would go if the fire came close to our neighborhood.
