The reason I blog...

"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and
keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh
your memory of these meaningful, significant things. Some of them may be funny.
Some may be of significance only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly
beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of
special experience."

[ Getting my feet wet ]

* I still have multiple things i need to post from August til now...but in the mean time...check out my new blog...

After reading a really great post from a really great photographer, Zack Arias...I got motivated. So this is me getting my feet wet...or jumping in and getting drenched! I've been wanting to pursue photography as a career for a while now...just haven't really known where to start.

I'm not planning to quit my day job yet...but I've gotta start somewhere. So...I'm going to start with some "service" photography. If you or anyone you know is in need of some photographs...please e-mail me at Ledwards0713{at}yahoo{dot}com! I'm going to do this for zero the pressure is off myself as well as someone in need of some pictures.

I'd like to find someone within one please don't be afraid...even if you are the one in need! My favorite line from this article was..."Just go effing do it!" So that's what I'm doing! I started this blog (which is a start right?)...and I'll be updating soon with some pictures I've taken make sure you come back soon (or sign up as a follower!)

[ Camping at Smith and Moorhouse ]

I took the kids camping with my Dad and Kim's side of the family up at Smith and Moorhouse. It rained a good part of the time...but we still had lots of fun with everyone...thank goodness for our trailer keeping us mostly dry!

It was so pretty once it stopped raining and the sun came out...if you look close you can see where it snowed on the very top of the mountain!

Roasting mallows and hot dogs!

A bunch of pics from our camp trip...

[ finally!! ]

Here is how we finished up the month of July...

I had my 26th birthday on the 13th...I got to celebrate my birthday this year with my sister (her mother-in-law threw her a 1/2 birthday...i know SPOILED!) but she felt bad that it was also the day before my real birthday so she got us both individual cakes...which was super sweet! My sister did my hair on my birthday and then we went and got a pedicure...then we went out to dinner as a family. It was overall a really nice birthday...other than the patch of grey hair i found...that was rather sad...good thing Mo has some mad hair skills and covered it up nicely for me!!

We spent the 24th of July weekend in Delta again this year. We love going there and spending lot's of time on the lake with great friends! I always take way too many pictures when we are on the boat...and not enough off the water! In about a hundred pics taken that weekend...i was in only one...and it wasn't a good one! I really need to be better at handing the camera off and being on the other end of the lens! are some pics from the trip...

On the water... The lizard Joey found for the kids at the golf course...

I love the one of Clayton kissing it! The kids loved it...i was freaked out by it!!And I couldn't resist posting CJ's cute little bum!!
Then Joey and I celebrated our 6th Wedding Anniversary on the 28th...i received my favorite kind of flowers...they were so pretty!

[ Update? ]

So's been a while!!

I'm gonna try to update you all on what we've been up to since what like the end of July?!!

There's probably a i'll try not to overwhelm you!

I've been a little overwhelmed myself just thinking about the blog...which is why I've been procrastinating!

But I do think it's important not only for you, but mostly for myself to document the special moments in our lives...and maybe also so that you know I'm still alive!!

So keep checking back...and hopefully you haven't all given up on me and my pathetic blog!

All the love in the universe...
