Terra Art Studio

Dorothy and I, along with Kelly, Hunter, Jenna, and Gracen, went to the Terra Art Studio located south east of Fayettevill, AR today. They create terra cotta, ceramic, and blown glass art pieces and maintain a wonderful outdoor and indoor gallery of their work.

Jenna rings the musical chimes.

Gracen gives it a try.

The kids had fun finding their way through the labyrinth.

Photo Collage

Five years ago I took this photo. We were in Siloam Springs late in the afternoon and I liked the way the sunlight lit up the front of this building. When I got home I used a photo editing program to lighten the fore ground and discovered my youngest grand daughter was in the picture. She was lost in the shadows in the original photo. Recently I had the photo enlarged and printed on a 16X20 canvas and hung it on the wall. When my grand daughter Marley saw it she told me she wanted a picture of her on the wall too. I could see how that was going to go so I went into the archives and pulled out photos from times past of all the grand children. Since there was a Uhaul truck in the original picture I wanted each photo to feature a cargo carrying vehicle.

Marley picked out this photo. She was helping her mom deliver
cinnamon rolls to Hastings Hospital employees for a fund raiser.

This was taken 21 years ago. Tara and Sam were in the back of
a friend's truck at a pig in the ground party we attended.

Here's Hunter in the back of my truck. We were on the way to the creek.
Four years ago.

A Day at Waimanalo Beach

 Japanese newlyweds come to Waimanalo beach for their wedding photos. Eight couples  had photo sessions while we were there. When we left they were still arriving in white stretch limousines.

I was texting pics to the kids back home. Grand daughter Tara
dared me to photo bomb. 

We ate lunch here. Great food, rustic location.

While we ate there were lots of Bible verses and iconic pictures on the wall
and pigeons meandered at our feet.
