You Capture - Play

Thursday, July 29

Sydney had a super fun play date with two friends last week.  Two watched the other one in a play at drama camp, followed by a treat at St. Cupcake, then dress up and pedicure and playing outside.  

Chillin' after play.

While little sister was out, big sister and I went to Michael's and stocked up on stuff for making friendship bracelets.  How about some color play?

Both sisters have been trying out Kung Fu this week and they love it, because it seems like play.

Do they sell tiny tennis shoes?

Wednesday, July 21

Because my cat really needs them.   I was wondering why she slips around so much while playing on the laminate flooring. I've never owned a long haired cat before. Check out how furry her paws are.  The cat has no traction!

Here are some random photos that I took at my Grandma's house in case you're not a cat person.    

Mmmm, fresh strawberries.

You Capture - Vehicles

Friday, July 16

Where have I been?  Last week I was sick and missed a night of camping with my family, but glad I made it for the second night.  The weather was perfect and has been all week.  Here is a non-motorized vehicle that they got to spend the camping trip with.  Thanks Gma and Gpa!

Here is our vehicle as seen from a semi's hub cap.

And the inside of our vehicle after camping.

This truck belongs to my Gma's neighbor.  I like purple.

This week both girls were in camp, Kyla did Kung Fu and Sydney did one day of gymnastics and three days of yoga camp.  They are having a great time while I have been catching up on laundry and editing photos.

The fire breathing man outside my house

Monday, July 5

No joke!  We watched the fireworks at Fort Vancouver from the Portland side of the river and rushed home to get the kids to bed.   It was still so loud outside from the neighborhood festivities that we decided to watch a show before bed.   Then around 11:30pm there was a bright orange light coming through the blinds and it kept flashing.  We finally looked outside to find a bald headed, shirtless, tattooed man standing in the street breathing fire right outside our house.   Crazy!    I wonder if he is a professional from the Lion King?  I'm pretty sure that show is in town now and I know from Scott's photo that is part of the show.

I've created a monster

Saturday, July 3

A blogging monster that is.  When Kyla found out that her cousin started a blog she immediately decided that she wanted a blog too.   I think it never really crossed her mind that a kid would be allowed to have a blog.   She has published four posts since she started it after dinner last night.  I tried to explain about pacing herself at one per day.  I still need to talk to her about giving credit to other photographers that she features on her blog. She has taken all but one photo herself. 

I almost forgot to let you know that Sydney lost her second tooth last week while we were at the beach.   Please note that she has finally stopped begging for a pillow pet, we were all so excited that it was waiting for her at the post office when we got home.  And it's a lamb - surprise!

You Capture - Chairs

Thursday, July 1

All of these chairs were found in North Carolina which is where we were last week visiting my inlaws and spending time at the beach.
