#marchphotoaday - 31. where you relax

curled up with a good book...


i enjoyed fatmumslim's daily photo challenge so much this past month that i think i'm going to play along in april too!  using instagram and my iphone made it less daunting so while i may try using the canon for as many photos this month as possible, at least i know it won't be a chore to complete the challenge as long as i have my phone.  here's a look at the themes for april for anyone interested in joining me.

#marchphotoaday - 28. trash

Goodwill: one man's trash is another man's treasure

goodbye winter!

last week we said goodbye to winter with a quick trip to big bear.  justin was on spring break and i took a couple of days off of work so we could go play in the snow.  we visited with some friends who live there and even took a cool tour of the mitsubishi cement mine.  so most of these pictures are actually from the mine.  we even got to watch an explosion.  (don't worry, we were a safe distance away)

steel balls

can i hold one?

ready to shot put...

ready to juggle...

#marchphotoaday - 26. key

and a pooping rhino keychain

DIY growth chart

this is technically a semi-DIY project.  i saw these awesome surfboard growth charts on zulily one day but even on sale they were $150!  luckily, a friend's father is super handy with woodwork and offered to make us a board for the cost of the wood.  (thanks again Mr. B!)  so i stained it, justin painted some hibiscus flowers on it, and we filled it with saraya's measurements from birth to 6, 12  and 18 months.  isn't it great?

#marchphotoaday - 10. loud

this is my friend Jared.  i asked him to pose like he was shushing someone and i didn't tell him that the theme for today's photo was loud.  this is my interpretation of how sometimes silence is louder than words...
