Spending almost two whole weeks OUTSIDE … skiing, hiking, snowboarding, hot-tubing, wondering, and RV-ing all over Utah was one of the most memorable vacations Steve and I have had to date! I took a whole bunch of photos with my rolleiflex medium format camera, … Continue reading
My super athletic brother, James, and … I … decided to “ride bikes” earlier this week from Flourtown, PA to College Park, MD. We left on Sunday from our parents’ house in Flourtown after a delicious Mother’s Day brunch. I snapped these photos with my iPhone throughout the 4 day trip.
The first night we stayed at James’ girlfriend Dara’s house in Newark, DE. We were so happy to arrive at her front door after a long day of “just riding bikes”. She put a sign up that read:
Bates Bikes Motel. Love her!!!
Somehow we made it to Baltimore!! We met this fellow bike-enthusiast outside Baltimore on day 3. He started in NYC about a week ago and he’s headed to California. Good luck Peter!We couldn’t find a hotel under $500 in the downtown DC area so we settled on College Park. It felt so good only riding for 35.08 miles the third day!
What do you do when finish a fun bike trip from Philadelphia to DC? Obviously get a mani/pedi!! Look who drove down to meet us in DC?! Steve, James and I toured DC a bit and wondered around the Smithsonians for the day. One of the highlights was finding out what we would look like as early humans at the Natural Sciences Origins exhibit. James is continuing his biking adventures all the way to Lexington, Kentucky for his best friend’s wedding on May 25th. You can do it James! Love you!!
A few weeks ago my mom and I spent a couple day’s in our Nation’s capital touring the beautiful city. We spent most of our time at the Newseum, but also hopped on and off a bus that winds through the city. We didn’t plan it this way, but the cherry blossoms were in full bloom while we were there too which made the get-away even better.
I was inspired by this article I read online from Petapixel, and decided to play with making a few multiple exposures this morning. I’ve been extra busy lately so I forced myself to take 10 minutes to do something fun and creative. I am now forcing myself to take another 10 minutes to blog about it! I definitely look forward to making more multiple exposures as soon as I can (preferably not from my office chair next time).
I planted this amaryllis bulb on January 17th in my office window and thoroughly enjoyed watching it grow a little bit everyday. Somedays I felt like I was actually watching it grow before my eyes! It bloomed yesterday (on the second day of spring!).
