Back in the studio...

So, I have been back from vacation for a few days now, but have had a lot of catching up to do and am just now getting around to sharing some of the photos. The vacation was amazing and a much needed break. We visited many places that I absolutely fell in love with and I was not ready to come back to Ohio after spending an incredible week in the Bay area of California. I would live there in a heartbeat!

Here are a few photo highlights from the trip...

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Tristan felt home when he found the penguins... he ADORES penguins. We watched these little guys bob around for a long time, they all kept swimming up to the glass following Tristan back and forth. Seemed like some supernatural human/animal secret communication was going on.

Then I found these crazy transparent jelly fish that were only visible when a light shone on them. I tested out the macro lens on my new camera and captured some great photos.

This random and lovely assortment of dingies and kayaks were all lined up at fishermans wharf. We spent some time here watching the sea lions flop around and bark while the sea otters were showing off playfully in the bay.

I'll be posting more photos over the next couple weeks, so many great ones to share.
(I'm not sure why blogger is turning all my vertical photos horizonatally....hmmm.)

And today was the first day of second grade! Tristan was not quite ready for summer to be over! I remember feeling the same sense of anticipation...doesn't seem that long ago when I had those butterflies that made it hard to eat breakfast that first day back!
