The Beauty of Nature & Family

I had the nice treat of spending the past 4 days out in eastern Oregon at Wallowa Lake, with my daughter, and her husband’s family.  I am reminded of the healing beauty of nature and time outdoors.  The colors, sensations and the sounds amaze me.  Having a camera to capture this beauty has my eyes open for new things.

If that wasn’t enough, seeing the world through my granddaughter’s eyes was pure delight.  She is so alive and open, with a mind that is soaking it all up, while we all get entertained.

A big thanks to Ryan’s family for always being great at including me and making me feel a part of their tribe.  And a big happy birthday to Ryan!  He’s an amazing husband, dad, and son-in-law all wrapped into one.  We are blessed.
