Fun Pictures

These last few weeks I’ve taken some 800 pictures of everything there is to take pictures of so I have decided to share some of them with you guys on the blog. I picked a few pictures for each person so enjoy! Love you! IMG_4970IMG_4429 IMG_4968 IMG_4421 IMG_4346IMG_4324 IMG_4281 IMG_4314

We recently had our family pictures taken at Sears. We were going to try to do it at home, but that just never works out quite right. So we found a deal where we could get a single 8×10 print and a few shots to choose from. Here it is:

Trebuchet plans and images

Trebuchet plans and images

A couple years ago Clara and I (she was three) went into the garage to build a trebuchet (here’s the original video).  If you don’t know what that is, it’s like a catapult, with a little sling action.  I put together plans before starting and just found them for a friend.  Here they are, including the (photo) shopping list you can take to Lowe’s with you to get the parts and build your own.  The PDF is to print and cut then use to draw your cut lines on the standing supports.  If you end up building one then come post a link to your photos/videos in the comments below.

Catch up for October

Here are several fun pictures to look at. George enjoyed a delicious, messy garden tomato. He worked on it for about a half hour. Another day he got into Rachel’s yarn drawer. I ended up with some really great action shots of Clara’s soccer game (one where she’s mid air and moving fast). Clara also used some raspberries from our garden and created a fun treat. Rachel and I were impressed and Clara wanted some pictures, so we snapped a few. Here they are.
