I forgot to do my final update for the Spring Reading Thing 2009. I got them all done! Woo Hoo! I found that by getting a list up and having a "deadline" to get them finished by really got me to reading again. I can't wait for the next one. I think she has one again in the fall. So if you want to get reading again check it out! I'm currently reading a "children's" book. I love reading them and it's nice to read something between my bigger books. It's "Igraine the Brave" by Cornellia Funke. It's really good. In fact I really like this author. What are you reading this summer?

This weeks challenge over at I ♥ Faces is: Sepia Toned. As soon as I found out I knew which picture I would enter. Just the other night I was outside with Sam and he was listening to his MP3 player and leaning up against our fence. I grabbed my camera and started shooting. Here is one of my favorites from that evening. If you would like to see more just click on the icon above!
Two Saturdays ago we spent most of the day at Hawaiian Falls. Sam and I both had a great time and I also had a lot of time reading my book! It's so nice that he's now to the age that I'm comfortable letting him go off to play. This water park is big enough for him to be entertained but small enough for me to be at peace when he's out by himself.
We've started our free summer movies at the local theaters as well. We get to see a different one on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This week we're planning on going back to Hawaiian Falls and on Saturday we'll be spending the day in Austin. Fun, Fun, FUN!

This weeks assignment for "You Capture" was FEEL. I had a hard time all week trying to think of a picture that I could take that would describe FEEL. Then today and this past Thursday I captured Sam enjoying the sun and water. Can you feel the sun and water? I know that we sure did! As usual you can click on a picture to make it bigger.
You feel the excitement that he had going down the water slide all by himself.
Sam sure could feel the sun in his eyes as I called his name to try to see how much longer he was going to do the lazy river.
I can feel my heart go "pitter-patter" every time I look at that sweet face.
You could also feel my heart go "pitter-patter" when I see him do stunts.
Sam had fun feeling the water splash all over him.

This weeks theme over at I ♥ Faces is - "Anything Goes". This special category is "Pets", but participants are more than welcome to enter a photo of any animal (it does not necessarily have to be a pet.) If you'd like to see more pictures just click on the icon above.
As soon as I read this I knew exactly the picture I wanted to enter. This is a picture of our cat Murphy. One morning while getting ready for work I went out to our living room to put on my shoes. I sat down on our ottoman and looked up to see Murphy resting on the arm of our couch. The sun was streaming in our front window and he was enjoying being bathed by the warmth. Our living room walls were a pale yellow and the sun was just bouncing off of them too. I leaned down to grab my camera, shot this picture and went to work. This is the picture that I realized that I got. I love how our yellow walls behind him came out black. It is one of my all time favorites of him.
