Banks Lake 2011/August

Boys + Camping = Happy All DAY

the get up around 7 or 8 and play all day in the sand and water.  It's easy to entertain them.  This is what the mornings look like.  


This trip was particularly lovely with water levels lower than we have ever seen them (apparently it even made local news).  I could walk from the beach/campsite to the car (without hiking the mountain) and drive into town for a fountain diet coke.  WHAT? you didn't actually think I'm the camping type, did you?  Well, I am!  As long as I can get my diet cokes cold and on tap.

See you next summer!

Banks Lake 2011/July and thoughts on photography

I don't know what it is.  But taking photos gives me a bit of anxiety.  I'm worried that I will miss the shot.  I'm worried that my camera will get wet/dirty.  So I pretty much just leave it up to my sister, kjrsten to do the photo taking while I just sit back and enjoy my vacation and the lovely photos she takes.  I must admit, it's a bit disappointing to go on vacation without her now.  I can never do what she does with film.  Anyway, here's how I remember the July Banks Lake trip.

we are sisters, but one of us is a little darker than a normal Caucasian. 

yummy boy.

twinsies and BFFFFF.

"and thank thee that we can go fishing on booboo's party barge." (macrae's prayer, daily.)

And here's how Kjrst does.  See what I mean?

Hawaiian Vacation at BooBoo Island looked like this.


 Obviously these are all Kjrsten's photos.
