Camera Critter : Sleeping Beauty

To participate in camera critters click HERE!

It's very exciting having a new puppy in our home, although our first beagle is only 1 year old we couldn't pass up the opportunity when we found out her mother was going to have another batch of pups and that they would be a full blood relative to Breigh. He is doing a pretty good job training and we feel like he is about a month ahead of were Breigh was.

Briegh and Riley have become quick buddies and here they are snuggling on the way home for the first time together.

Go figure here they are sleeping yet again

Like a kid, Riley can fall asleep almost anywhere at anytime

Here's Briegh trying to pose pretty, don't forget about me guys I'm still adorable.

Poor Riley he was tuckered out after a long day

Scenic Sunday : Beach Sunset

I was recently organizing the pictures off our computer and came across this shot I took of my wife last summer on a trip to the beach with the kids. I totally love this picture of her with the sun setting in the background. I remember the day, it was a very relaxing trip to the beach and everyone was just kind of winding down at the end of the day. Carrie was wondering around the beach and she seemed so peaceful and relaxed. You would have to appreciate our lifestyle it seems as though you never get to relax and just be together and the times you actually do you are normally too tired to enjoy the moment. This was one of those nights when all was just right.

Camera Critters : What do you think happened here?

To participate in camera critters click HERE!

While my wife was at work one evening I decided to have a pool/campfire party with the kids. We were all having a great time and even the dog "Breigh" was getting in on the fun.

Here is Trin and Blake roasting up some marshmellows over the campfire while Kohl and Jay were enjoying the pool. Breight is really taking notes on what the kids are doing isn't she, we should have known she was up to NO GOOD!

She got here opportunity when the kids went in for a drink and she snuck their extra marshmallows out of the cup holder in the chair. She is quite the scavenger when her nose gets a smell of something good.

Skywatch Friday : A step back in time

I recently got to go on a year end class trip with my daughter to a historic settlement her in CB. It was very beautiful and I managed to get some cool shots of the cloud in the sky that day.

Blue Monday : Sea Creatures

To participate in the BLUE MONDAY fun Click Here

I love the beautiful creatures of the sea, one of my favorites is the Humpback Whale, it is such a shame to see the dire condition this species is in. I certainly hope these gracious creatures can find a way to survive for generations to come.

Camera Critters: Flight of the Dragon

To participate in camera critters click HERE!

On a recent visit to my parents house (2 weeks ago) we were sitting outside on their patio chairs having a nice chat while the sun was getting ready to set and the kids were playing around the yard. All of a sudden out of no where arrived a bunch of Dragon Flies. I was shocked as I hadn't seen a Dragon Fly in a number of years it was exciting to see a bunch of them all at once and they were big too! I managed to get a picture of one as it took a breather on the chair it was very beautiful. We are heading back for another visit next weekend and hopefully we will get to see some more fun animals/insects.

Camera Critters : On the Road Again Comedy Style

Stopping for a pit stop on the side of the road, read story below. LOL

Time for a nap, it's hard work being a hound dog.

We had a hilarious experience with our pup on a trip home to visit the grandparents this weekend. About an hour into the trip the dog started to act crazy and was sniffing at the air vents and travelling back and forth in the van. We finally decided to stop and let her take a nature call before heading back on our journey. This didn't work for her, after we were back on the road for a bit she started acting up again, going at the vents. We finally figured it out the Air Conditioner was sucking the smell from an open bag of dog treats at my feet up through the vents and filling the van with bacon goodness. Poor Breigh she was trying desperately to figure out where the smell of her favorite treats were coming from and finally she got them. Then to make it even more fun we went bowling last night with the kids and Grandpa sat in my seat, he picked up the bag of treats in the dark and I was telling him how great they were and cheap too thinking he could see the bag was dog treats, oops, Grandpa tried one and wasn't long spitting it out.

Our new member of the Family : Riley

We met our new pup "Riley" this weekend and here are some great pictures of our little guy interacting with the new family. Here he is with Breigh, and Carrie and we were having a great time with this little fella. We can't wait until we can get him home with us in a few weeks.

Carrie trying to part herself from the little fella before we headed for home, it was hard and I think she had tears in her eyes on the way.

Here is the cute little guy.
