The Summer Pond

We have this new hot spot by our house. The Pond. You would think it was the beach its speckled with umbrellas swimming suits and fishing poles.
We are so thankful for all of these fun activities we have been doing this summer. We are just eating up the fun.

I was the only girl growing up and always wished that I could have a sister to share my secrets with to laugh and share clothes with. They have their good and bad moments but here is one of the good moment to remember.

This little guy is almost 1 and my favorite age. I love the discovery that happens at this age.

Camp Jeremiah Johnson

This was such a great day for these girls. They loved all the activities from making survival bracelets to canoeing to bb gun shooting and the down pour of rain. Oh yeah a little flirting with the boy scouts and pushing Alex into the water.

They are coming out of my ears. They're all over the place.
I wish that peaches were like this too many to handle. I would eat them ALL day long. I LOVE peaches.
Its too bad because things may go to waist because I just don't have the time to do anything with them.

Baby in a Tie

This weeks photo challenge...Tie. I wasn't too creative with it but came up with this adorable option.

We have been having a lot of fun with hosting the Chinese students. They came right in time for our family reunion and we have no shortage of children. I'm sure that was a shocker for them coming from an only child family and then their parents are only children too.
We had a bounce house of which they loved to climb on top of it. And Emily here is the swimmer of the two ( I love how her hair is in her goggles...that would bug me) .
Amy is a princess...she will swim for a bit.

Went to the Zoo

Went to the Zoo without my camera....lame sauce I know. I had some good photo ops too....UGH! Yeah, I have been a little sidetracked and I keep forgetting my camera. Family Reunion stuff going on and I am missing all the photo ops because I am so worried about getting to where we need to be.

Seven Peaks

And forgot the camera. Had tons of fun and burned myself. I lathered myself 3 times and still burned. I didn't put any on my legs and they burned in only 20 minutes.

Hosting Chinese Students

This is Emily and Emme these are their American names. Emily is Xiong Fangping and Emme is Yang Xuedan. They are super shy but I would be to if I was 12 in a new country learning English. I know they will be warming up to us and our crazy household. So far I know they LOVE french fries.

Week 36 of 52 Bubbles

I wanted to play with my lensbaby. It needs me to because it has a little learning curve on it.

Friday, July 15, 2011


I had a photo shoot with Persnickety. Katie invited me so that we could get it all done in 2 hours instead of it taking her 4 to 5. It was FUN but a mad house so many outfits to shoot. It was an organized mess though...if you know what I mean. But I would say yes to that chaos again. It was really fun, the clothes are to die for cute and I met some new friends. Oh but for now I can't show the photo. I promised Corinne I wouldn't.

Kennecot Copper Mine

First time I have ever been here. Yeah, I don't get out much.
Born and raised Utahn and I even don't like to ski. I hate winter.
I actually loved the informational movie they had about the mine -what it does the value it creates for everyone in this was an eyeopener to say the least I really enjoyed it.

We had some pretty happy girls.
I even have a feather.

Boys Day in the Parlor

Isaac's hair is gone and so is Gabe's and then Greg...his is just a hair cut. He can't have it shaved too many dents in his head from snowboarding accidents and getting concussions.

Party Day

Party time at Classic Skating. Oh, how this brings up those childhood memories. Love the days when I was a pro roller skater. I seriously had some moves...ask me to do them now and may fall flat on my face. Good times!
I bought these discount tickets to have a huge friend party with Gabe, Bryn, Elyse and Isaac but it didn't work out the way I wanted so, I split up the ticket purchase and had Elye's party here and then Bryn will be next.

Saturday Chores

Saturday chores are no fun.
We have this huge garden...I only planted in a little section of it. I just didn't know what it would take to grow one so I made it small. Anyways the weeds are taking over. And it was time to show them who is Boss and that would be me. There was a lot of whining involved also, some reminding little Isaac to work, and a few reminders that when we are done we will be going to Trafalga.
In all it took us 2 hours to was tough work but it needed to be done.
I am so proud of the kids for sticking thru it and getting the job done.

Summer Days

Those summer days are flying right past us. SO much is going on that I feel like on crazy lady. I think my clients are wondering where I've gone.
Though it is so busy. I can not tell you how much fun we are having. It has been our best summer so far and we have had not 1 vacation nor are there any plans for one.

Nap Time is Over

We all fight over getting this little guy out of bed. He is is such a ray of sunshine. Smiles all the time and always ready to play. So I had to get this shot because this is how we always find him at the corner and always at this end of the bed because its near the door...he needs to be heard.

My Garden Grows

This is my first year growing a garden and its coming along quit nicely. The one thing I hate most about it is the weeding...ugh!
Every time I look at this garden it reminds of my Grandpa. He was so passionate about is farm. He was such an inspiration to me having polio...nothing stopped him. He did all kinds of hard labor with one leg that just didn't help him much. In his last years here on earth his body was getting to a point of not being able to move as much but he still had to grow something. The last plant he grew was a tomato plant and I can't wait for mine to harvest (picture idea already in mind). I do miss him.

Bishop Family Reunion

Some days are just bad photo days.

It was one that I took at a family reunion. And that was it just one photo. But the reunion wasn't that special either. I know I am a bad person I may go to hell for that one...he he!

Swimming Session

I have this idea of a swimming session and it was finally time to actually do it but I walked away from it thinking "I bombed it" but wait I do that with every session. So, then I get to thinking "there's gotta be something I will like." Really what happens is it doesn't turn out like I image it and then I get bummed. But then it all ends up working out and then I love the photos...just too hard on myself.

Lookin' Nice

He's lookin' nice all dressed up. I wanted a photo last Sunday but he was already out of his suit 2 minutes after we got home from church so, I had to wait til the next Sunday to get my photo.
This boy is a grown man almost (I'm going to hang on the almost cuz I don't want my kids to grow up).
He looks good out there serving the sacrament and he loves it. I love this guy I am truly blessed to be his mom.

Yea I probably should have moved the couches out of the way but sometimes I am LAZY.

It was a little get together with the MBA grads. I know a few people and that's always a plus but its much more fun for Greg to catch up with some of those he went to school with.
He loves to see how they are doing with work, where they live, & how many kids. You know all that catching up kind of stuff.

The Annual Sleepover

Its fun to have an annual something...because you look forward to it every time. This year Bryn had some soccer games that fell on the weekend that we have the 4th of July party and to say she was pretty upset. She did not want to miss out on anything. However, she went to the games she was there for her team was still able to enjoy in the festivities like: swimming, late night movie, hanging with the cousins, sleeping under the stars, dutch oven breakfast in the morning, and swimming again the next day.


About Me

My photo
My passion in life is photography. I live eat and breath it....seriously sometimes I can't sleep at night. I love to be able to capture every moment of my children's lives...I'm not so sure how much they like it. They'll thank me later...right! I have been blessed to be married to my best friend for 12 years. I love that he tolerates all of my obsessions he may not get them but he supports me to go for it. So, thanks to my best friend for supporting me to make my DREAMS come true.
