Stonehenge and the Dry Tortugas

28 Sep

Part of the fun of my art class has been going through old travel photos and finding cool pictures I have taken to now become prints. Last class, I did pictures from Italy and this time- I picked two completely different locations. Mom and I went to Stonehenge in 2002 in the dead of winter and it was great to get photos of the stones with no people around. Who knew they would come in handy now because of the almost completely white sky!

My second picture was from a trip Kerry and I took to the Dry Tortugas in 2007. We took a catamaran out to Fort Jefferson from Key West and it was definitely one of the coolest places both of us have been. And, I got some cool pictures of the piers, fort and the beautiful blue water.

Since this class is only 3 hours per session (compared with 5 hours this summer)- my prints are never dry enough at the end of class to get a good picture so I apologize for the weird angles. Here is just with the first part of the image.

Stonehenge turned out better than expected.

In other household news- the new favorite toys are the magnets…

and the couch cushions (combined with reading the book upside down).

A new pink tutu

26 Sep

Mom volunteered to be our sitter on Saturday so we could have a last minute date. We decided to try out a new restaurant (that I won’t name here) and it was not the greatest and both of us were not feeling the greatest for most of Sunday. Hopefully, both of these issues can be chalked up to just opening but I don’t think we will be heading there again. On a positive note- it was very nice of Mom to watch Miss H and we had a very nice time at dinner! 

Mom bought Miss H a pink tutu skirt and it has been her favorite item of clothing all weekend. She even had it on with her pajamas. Is this girly stuff just part of little girls DNA?

The tutu is perfect for dancing (and talking on the cell phone).

Besides a new tooth, discovering that the laundry basket is a great fort, chasing the vacuum cleaner, deciding that rice is not a yucky food and exclaiming ‘GO!’ to me, Kerry, friends at the gym class or anything that is not moving quick enough- it was a fairly quiet weekend around here. We have a busy week ahead and Kerry’s dad arrives on Friday! We are excited to have him come visit and we know he is excited to see Miss H.
