4:30 AM

I woke myself and my daughter up well before the sun, which is very early this time of year!  We hit the highway and headed north, watching the sky go from navy to baby blue to pink to glowing yellow.  As I pulled into the empty parking lot at one of my most favorite places, Lake Willoughby, Emily kept yelling "water, water!"  I swept her up from her car seat and we headed down the deserted sands just as the sun was making its way down the mountain side.  With my camera in hand I started snapping away at the always amazing landscape that surrounded me and Emily sat on a log and stared at the vast expanse of lake and mountains before her.  It was quite the thought provoking and photogenic moment apparently.

I wonder what Emily will think of all these poignant photos that I've taken of her as she grows up?  My hopes are that she will appreciate the look into the years that she can't remember with awe and admiration. 

And onto what the heck else has been going on the last month...  Goodness its been almost a month since I have updated this thing?!  I have been mentally thinking 'I'll share this on my blog' and 'Oh, that will make a good post', but then I somehow end up never opening my laptop and sitting down to type my thoughts.  Before you know it three days, a week, or four have passed and what I was going to write about now seems irrelevant. Mostly I've been working, taking lots of photos, doing the occasional ambulance shift, playing with Emily, yard work, and I somehow got caught up recently in that stupid game Candy Crush.  The past three or four weeks have just flown by....

What a great moment you captured! I'm sure she'll love the photos when she gets older. I do photo books every two years for each child, and even now, they look at those books often.
