Dhyana’s fun at the beach

Dhyana’s fun at the beach

Dhyana’s first trip to the ocean was fun for her, Marenna, Monica, and me (Conor stayed with his grandmother this weekend). We went to Oregon for a hot air balloon reason, but decided to spend some time at the Oregon coast. At first she was timid of the waves and not sure if they were safe or attacking her (or just chasing her back to the beach). After a few minutes she watched Marenna splash in the waves and decided she too wanted to have fun in the sun jumping in the waves. It was cold, but that did not last long with all the fun we...

Happy kids create happy father

As I get older it becomes easier and easier to find happiness through my kids. Their smiles make me smile; their laughter makes me laugh.

In a time when enjoyment is harder to...

Elephant Ears R GOOD

Going to a festival or fair has many attractions, but a favorite treat is eating part of an elephant – a large sugary ear! Monica, Marenna, Dhyana, and I went to Oregon for a hot air balloon business reason and visited their local Tigard fair. There were many things of interest, but the elephant ear was a treat. It really was huge next to...

Photo editing software fun

Photo editing software fun

Having fun experiences with the kids is important, very important. In the moment it is important to pay close attention to take in all the important emotions, sights, sounds, smells … (well sometimes not smells). Pictures can show a lot, but being in the moment and fully participating can make the memory last longer and better. That way we can try to remember these events on our own, but when looking at pictures all those memories rush back. That is the most fun reason to work with photo editing software, but actually trying to make it...
