Summer Adventures ~ Camping with Ivy!

Memories that are reminders that life slips by quickly.
Capture the moment of a sleeping baby.

 Capture a moment of sucking a nectarine out of a grandfather's hand.

 ...a moment of a proud father hugging his child after a tumble.

 ...a moment of a father sharing nature's calming moments.

 Capture an uncle helping her cast her first stones into the river.

 "throw it just like this"

 Capture that big smile.




 Capture a mother with a rod in one hand and a smiling child.

"We have this moment to hold in our hand,
And to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand.
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today."

  8. Ivy is adorable - those big blue eyes and that smile! You must be having such fun. It's great that you could all go camping together. She is sure to catch the camping bug and be an outdoor girl like her Oma at this rate!

  9. Beautiful expressions of family and the love shared there in! Ivy's smiles are priceless! You have the whole spread of ages from a baby to 102! What a gift!

  10. Catching up after a crazy summer. I loved your post about cycling the Danube. That would be a dream come true for us too. You are so blessed to have your family near by for fun camping trips.
