The Thoukis Family

It was such a pleasure to photograph this beautiful family! The kids are so happy and energetic, and it was obvious how much they all love one another. Such a nice way to spend a morning!

Thoukis Family

“Oh no, Kanon!”

The title of this entry can be attributed to my son who is Kanon’s playmate. My son adores chasing Kanon anywhere, and yelling “Oh no, Kanon!” at him for no particular reason. In fact chasing Kanon is one of Owen’s favorite things in life. That is one reason it makes me so sad that Kanon and his mom Karina and her husband Ben are being re-stationed to Japan and will move in a few weeks. We will miss them a lot, but we are excited for them because Japan was their wish. So, in honor of that, and because I already had some photos of him I really like, here is Kanon!

Sandcastle Contest

Today was Carmel’s annual sandcastle contest. The theme was “Dog House, Doll House.” The sandcastles themselves (ours included) were not as exciting as the beautiful weather, the great company, and the people/dog-watching. ┬áThe cute girl and her daughter are Kari and Cora. The other duo is Seth and his boy Quinn, from a totally unrelated, yet equally cute family.

Bobbing Apples

I guess this year we are all about the backyard produce. Yesterday I came outside to find that my husband had filled our son’s kiddie pool with apples from the somewhat neglected tree at the edge of our yard. The deer usually manage to eat all the tiny apples before they ripen enough for humans to enjoy. (One night I walked into the yard at the wrong moment and almost got hit by a deer as he bolted away from the tree! Yes, I said, I almost got hit by the deer, not the other way around. It was serious. He was three-times my size, with antlers, and he suddenly wanted out of that yard more than anything. Talk about wildlife taking your breath away!) This year the apples were eaten only by worms, but still greatly enjoyed by humans. (One in particular.) Of course, I ran to get the camera.
