A Flower and Favorites

29 Sep


The photo taken with my Nikon D50.

We took the baby to the Heard Natural Science Museum on Saturday in McKinney, TX. Although he is just a week short of being six months old, we like to expose him to so many things. He seems to always enjoy our outings and fusses very little when we explore what is around us. This is especially important on long drives.

As kids, my sister and I had these opportunities. Our parents took us everywhere as early as I can recall. Photographs depict trips to the mountains, desert, camping in tents, hunting, visits to museums and libraries. My parents introduced us to many experiences and I have always felt very fortunate to have these things in our lives at such a young age.

I recall a few childhood favorites:
*Campfires at church retreats
*Playing in mud puddles
*Building a fortress in the snow
*Running through the corn rows in the garden
*The smell of mom’s perfume
*Sunday ropings after church at the local arena
*Listening to Paul Harvey while eating lunch
*Picnics on the back porch
*Drawing and sketching pictures of more of my favorite things

    It looks like a lot of things, but I have a vivid imagination 🙂
    No church retreats or ropings here, but I can commiserate on the rest.

    That is a wicked perspective of a flower. Nice childhood favorites. I sure remember Paul Harvey!

    Another great one right there… Keep it up! I have a friend who owns a NikonD50 and I must say that it’s an amazing little piece of technology. I’m very tempted to buy one, actually!
