The Denver Zoo.

My oh my has this place changed. It was my idea to go to the zoo and Addy was just as excited. I’m the biggest kid of us all sometimes. So we went earlier this month and it was beautiful. Gorgeous weather and I guess we have been out of the loop because some major renovations have taken place since we’ve been gone. I love all of the little artsy touches like the new area for the elephants, a carousel, a little train, etc. So. Nice. The animals actually look happy and they are so close up that you don’t necessarily need a long lens to get any decent shots. Here are some of ours.

I’m entertaining the thought of getting a membership and I’m not a member to anything, not even the art museum (my absolute favorite).  Also I started a new challenge of 10k steps a day with Raul, the day of the zoo we had 10k-11k, it was awesome.

I’ve loved taking pictures forever now but have been taking even more ever since we had Addy. My poor poor hard drive struggle. Lately it’s been a month by month project and she has her own Tumblr page over here.

However, I want to focus on capturing images on a weekly bi-weekly basis so I’m doing a 26 week photo challenge now. Trying to be realistic since we will have a new addition soon. I can always increase right? Right.

Let’s do this thang!

Today is the 20th day of Inktober and I’m 20 weeks this week (half-way mark!).  I wasn’t sure if I could draw every day but so far so good and I want to continue past October.  It is such a good practice to maintain.

I’m still kicking this cold, turned sinus infection, turned cold again.  I bought some probiotics (kefir and yogurt), hoping those help.  No way am I doing sauerkraut.  This was the first year we couldn’t make it out to the mountains to see the leaves change but there are plenty here to look at too.

The colors are gorgeous, the leaves fall much too quickly.

Dye It Yourself.

When I dreamed about being a mom, one of the things I couldn’t wait to do with my little one was to dye Easter eggs.  It has been forever for me and was brand new to my Babycakes.  I used the crayon that came with the PAAS pack and drew little designs.  The yellow dye didn’t show up at all so I switched that one out for a blue dye.

Baby girl had three Easter egg hunts in all this past week and by the third one she was a pro.  “Hmmm, let me see”, she would say while she stroked her little chin.  Then when she spotted one she said, “There it is!”, picked it up, shook it and wanted to open it right then and there.

Such a good little treasure hunter.

 

Oh, Canada.

We took a trip to Vancouver about two weeks before Christmas.  This was our second trip out there.  We flew from Denver to Seattle, then drove to Vancouver.  It was so nice to get away and have my SIL and her family meet our daughter in person for the first time.  I am a warm weather person and I LOVE the sun so not having it was the only downside of the visit.  Out of the week we were there, we only had one day of sun.  The first day.  The rest was cloudy, drizzly stuff that is hard to shoot in.  I do love how everything is covered in moss, absolutely beautiful.  We went to so many shops that we don’t have here like Aritzia, Saje, Top Shop and Brandy Melville.  I am a new fan of Tim Hortons!  I’m kicking myself for not buying a mug since I have a massive collection of mugs.  Their gingerbread white hot chocolate is the best.

We were there for a week so I have more pics over here.*

Even though you are pretty far away and a bit expensive, I do love you Canada.  You have a fan.

*I went back to my early 2000 days and posted the pics to Flickr but I am not liking the new design of it.  Know of anything else out there for photo sharing?
