Cowgirls, bonfires and hayrides…

For her 8th birthday this little cowgirl wanted a birthday party complete with a hayride and bonfire. The photos tell the story.

My Modern Day Little Miss Muffet…

Dressing up for Halloween comes naturally to this little drama queen. Her costume was a Pop Star Diva Vampire, but she ditched the teeth when she realized she couldn’t eat candy with them in! Here is her version of the modern day “Little Miss Muffet” and the spider. She is way too funny!

The Magnificance of God’s Creation…

Half Dome stands high above the surrounding barren granite mountains.

I’ve visited Yosemite National Park several times and each time I’m in awe of the majestic panorama that surrounds me. The granite mountains carved by glaciers long ago stand as a testimony to God’s handiwork. Standing in Yosemite Valley and looking up at the granite structures surrounding you makes you feel very insignificant in the realm of creation. El Capitan stands guard while Half Dome watches over the serene valley below. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of visiting Yosemite National Park and the Mariposa Big Trees that have stood the test of time for centuries.

“… the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands.” Isaiah 55:12

This is what most people remember when they visit Yosemite National Park. It’s the view you first see when you come through the tunnel that leads to Yosemite Valley. El Capitan is the foreground and Half Dome is in the far right. Breathtaking!

The forest in Yosemite Valley.

In the Mariposa Sequoia grove just outside Yosemite National Park stand hundreds of Sequoia trees. These huge trees are resistant to fire and insects and have stood for thousands of years. My brother and sister are standing in a hole that was cut in one f the large trees for tourists’ cars to drive through,

The Rocky Coastline of Northern California…

Rocks, kelp, sea lions, and otters…all regular sightings when you visit the northern California coastline. The sea shore is rocky and so different from the southern sandy beaches. But it  was just as inspiring watching the waves slap against the rocks and splash their spray.

At every stop along the coast I thought that had to be the perfect spot for a photograph, then we’d move a little farther down the beach and I thought that had to be the most perfect spot for pictures of rocks and waves.

There are so many picturesque spots along the Pacific coast that photographs really don’t do it justice. You really have to see it in person.
