There's no denying it. 

This baby is gorgeous!

Everything about her. From her little head...

the long road

to her tiny feet.

Whether she's laughing ...

or crying. 

And those eyes!!

Thanks Mama and Daddy for allowing me to capture 
these sweet moments in your baby's 
ninth month of life.
I'm truly honored.

Ithaca, NY

Ithaca, NY. The town in which my husband asked me to marry him! We hadn't
 made the trip back since that day, so we decided to take the girls and
 revisit this beautiful town.

It rained, actually poured, the entire drive up to NY and we wondered if we were
making a mistake in going. We decided to continue on and I am so glad 
we did. It ended up to be such a lovely day! 

We started out at the Ithaca Farmer's Market. You know how I just love markets!

The produce and flowers were so colorful against an otherwise dreary day. 

We met up with some sweet friends who graciously took us out in their 
boat onto Lake Cayuga for the day. What a wonderful treat!

After docking at a restaurant and eating lunch, we continued up the lake to the
Taughannock falls, the very same falls my husband and I walked 
up the day of our engagement. It was still a bit drizzly on the way to the falls, 
but nothing we couldn't handle. :D

Because of the recent lack of rain, we could walk right down in where the water
normally runs down. The girls had a blast splish-splashing through.

Everything was so plush and beautiful. 

Even found some Green Yellow  ...  this week's color at Project 64!

We climbed back up the path for the rest of the walk to the falls.

I saw this person standing with their umbrella and couldn't resist the photo op! 

About an hour later, we made it to the falls. It was a little sparse due to the lack of rain,
 but even still, it was beautiful. 

I took this shot before we crossed this little bridge on the hike back. 

As we walked, we witnessed a chipmunk wrestling with this poor lizard-type
creature. The girls felt the need to rescue him. He was bleeding when 
we found him, not sure if he ended up making it or not. 

We did a little puddle-jumping and wading before we boarded the boat to head back to town.

And to top the day off ... it stopped raining and the sun even made an appearance. 

It was the perfect day to revisit our engagement location. The girls enjoyed 
it and hopefully it won't be so long 'til we drop in again.

Project 64: Catch Up Time

I believe I stumbled across Project 64 around week 9. It has certainly been both a challenge for me to find each color as well as to photograph the color in an interesting way. I'm linking up the photos below to ensure I don't miss any of the 64 colors in the crayon box.  I missed the eight weeks at the start of the project and, as we've been traveling the last couple of weeks, I missed a few more. 
Thanks for the opportunity to catch up!! 

     Yellow Green.

         Carnation Pink.


    Robin Egg Blue.





      Forest Green.

    Cadet Blue.
