Porter has two more weeks left of school before summer vacation. I plan on spending everyday of his short 6 week summer filled with a ton of fun!

In an effort to learn more about photography I decided to get out my dad's old Minolta srT101. I think going back and learning the basics has really helped me understand how to use my dslr. Here are a few of my favorite shots from film.

Children's Museum

I took the kids to the Children's Museum recently and it was such a mellow afternoon. If it is too busy there I have a hard time staying for more than an hour, but when it is empty I can stay much longer.
The kids love racing in this tunnel jumpy.

Liesl was organizing the animals by land and water.

Porter was resting while he was waiting for Liesl to be finished playing with the animals.

I can't believe Porter is 6 today and how lucky we are to have such a wonderful person in our family.

You can see Porter through the years here.

San Diego County Fair

On Father's Day we met my parents, sister and her family at the San Diego County Fair. I took the kids two years ago and they were excited to go again!

Liesl didn't like the corn on the corn dog, so I took it off and then she only had a few bites of the dog.

Porter won a dragon

We took our annual trip to the Mojave Resort this past weekend and had a lot of fun swimming and sunning!
