“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”  George Bernard Shaw

Just hanging out with my 4 year old Great Nephew and his little 3 month old sister (the chipmunk cheeks on the right).  Actually, my husband is holding the 4 year old over my head so I grabbed this shot with his iPhone5 that was sitting on the table next to me.  I then processed it in Photoshop and Topaz Labs DeNoise and Simplify.   If you can’t have fun then what’s the point eh?  

I hope I’ll always wake up with a smile on my face that I can share with the world.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  But for children play is serious learning.  Play is really the work of childhood.”  Fred Rogers

I woke up this morning, after being away for a week  at my 365 Vegas Meetup, to find a little girl at the side of my bed yanking on my pillow and saying “Up YaYa!  UP! Play!  Me!” over and over . . . until I finally rolled on to the floor and played “blocks’ with her.  As much as I enjoyed my time with my fellow 365’ers, I really missed my precious little Grand Daughter, and apparently she missed me as well!  Moments like this are just to precious to waste.  

I had to document it as my 365 Self Portrait for the day.  I’ll be leaving again in a week for almost a month in Hawaii . . . so I cherish each and every moment I get with her.  I just love watching her at play . . . she is so intent on what she is doing.  One second she’s immersed quite seriously on the task at hand, and the next moment she is reduced to a belly laugh and giggles that consume her whole body.  Who can resist that??  Sure gets my day off to a great start!

“Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.”  Duane Michals

Viva Las Vegas!  

We are a group of Photographers out and about on the Vegas Strip!  Michael the Maven is with us, instructing us on night photography techniques . . . catching light trails, slow sync lighting, and whatever else we can soak up from him.  We started at the Luxor and worked our way down to the Bellagio.  Being my first time in Vegas, I was struck by the constant motion, and movement of people and lights and noise.  This is when Sin City really comes alive . . . and we are there to digitally record our interpretations of it.  I’m anxious to learn all I can over the next few days here with my fellow 365’ers whom I’ve know for almost a year now but just met in person.  What a fun group of people.  

It’s going to be a great weekend!

“The real pleasure was having the chance to enjoy being weightless, and the other was to spend some time looking out at this beautiful Earth that we’re all lucky to inhabit.”  Robert Crippen

Today is Baby Girl’s second birthday.  Papa G and I spent the day out and about with her just having fun. We went to the Chabot Space and Science Center in the Oakland Hills.  It’s a great place to take kids . . . fairly new and lots of great activities.  One exhibit was all about weightlessness in space.  In this one, I pressed the button on a touch screen, then stepped on to this mat with Papa and Ella.  A message said for us to JUMP!  When we did – it snapped out picture.  It’s supposed to look like we are weightless in space!  It didn’t turn out that great – but it was a lot of fun.  There was an option to e-mail it to yourself . . . so I did and thus it becomes my 365 for today!  

We head off to Vegas for the 365 Meetup tomorrow . . . I’m going to miss the little one so much.  I’ve been with her every day for the last four weeks!  

Hmm . . . I wonder who is going to go through withdrawal more . . .

“I think the word ‘cute’ was made up just for you.  You are cuteness redefined to a whole new level.  Happy Birthday to the cutest and sweetest 2 year old in the whole world!”  WishAFriend.com

Today is Baby Girl’s Second Birthday Party.  Her actual birthday is November 14th –  but the party was today.  We managed to get her down for a good nap prior to the party, and she woke up ready and eager to have fun!  I think she was a bit overwhelmed at first when everyone started showing up, but she soon got in to the swing of things.  She loved being able to go get chips from the food table, and chasing around with all the kids.  When it came time to open presents, she was such a little angel.  I love this shot of her oohing over a present.  I just don’t know how much more adorable a kid can get!  Mommy dressed her in her Halloween outfit (Shirley Temple) since she wasn’t home for Halloween.  This way everyone got to see her at her cutest.  

It was a great fun day, lots of family and friends, awesome presents and one little girl who navigated the whole event like the true Princess she is . . .

And we ate cake!  

Happy Birthday honey!
