Last night I decided to grab the kiddos and take a walk along the canal by my in-laws’ house just before sunset. They got to run, I got to take pictures. It was completely win/win!

A couple of weeks ago (I’ve been terribly slow about uploading these) I went for a little drive with the family. We went to a place that I had been wanting to get to pretty much since we moved to Colorado – Owl Creek Pass and Silver Jack Reservoir. It’s not very far from town, I had just never made it there. I’m very glad that we went! It was a great day out and about, the weather was perfect, the pictures I got were great, And it was an adventure!
There is a lot to be said for taking some time to just drive around. It’s actually one of my favorite things to do. On a nice day I’ll pack some lunch, pack up the kids and take off in a direction. It almost always takes me somewhere beautiful (or at the very least, interesting) that I haven’t been before. Or somewhere that I love to go.
Some days it’s a grand, fun adventure. Some days, especially when the older munchkin gets tired or bored, it is a test of my patience to see how many times she will say ‘You’re being a photographer – I wish you would just be my Mommy’ [every single time I stop to take a picture] before I give up and we go home. Today was one of those days. Lucky for me, Hubby also had the day off, so after hanging out at the in-laws’ for a while we left the kids with Grammy and I got to finish my photo drive.
I’m very happy that I got to.
Today I took the kiddos up to the plateau for some hanging out, running around, playing in the woods time. And of course there was a lot of picture taking, too.
Today the Hubby and I went out for another little adventure on the RoadStar. We headed to the Grand Mesa, another of the fairly local really cool places that I had never been before. It’s really nice up there and being on the bike was all the better – sun streaming down, cool mountain air wisping up under your helmet, and a full view of all the amazing surrounding that you pass – you really can’t beat it.
The only downside of the day was after we got home and I was looking through all the pictures (I took about 150 today). I realized that the image stabilizer switch on my lens had been off the entire time… so some of the pictures didn’t come out as clear as they otherwise would have been. All in all, I still got some pictures that I think turned out really well.
