I had one last post that I had wanted to get up on the site to complete the Kemah Boardwalk trip series.   Without a whole lot of explanation (other than that the ride Brock is on with-not-a-lot-of-other-riders is the “Jungle Bounce”) since you know the people, here is the last set of pictures.



I’ll wind up the series of ‘Discovery Hut’ pictures with this post (as Lori, Layne, and Danaya got home from Oregon at 3:45 this morning, and besides I have a new mini-series of pictures ‘boys driving lawn tractors at the hardware store’).

It’s been a busy week (and it’s only Tuesday night), and once again today it was raining. Every year I think that it must be the rainiest year for Calgary on record. Once again it seems like it, but it probably isn’t. On the plus side, my dandelion farm in the backyard is doing well, something the guinea pigs are thankful for.

The picture of Danaya and Brock was from a month or so ago, hope you enjoy it.  (Brock has eyes, honest).

Day 3 of our “dune-buggy adventure from 2004” coverage, and next up is Layne.

I have a vague recollection that Layne would have preferred to be driving the quad, but that the rental company would not allow people under 16 years of age to drive quads.  So, he was relegated to the dune buggy for the day.  No misadventures on Layne’s part if I recall correctly, although I didn’t get many pictures of him in the dune buggy.

Another picture from our Carseland trip a couple of weeks back.

Another set of filters on Pixlr-o-matic on my phone:

  • Effect:  Gadelf, which is providing the primary changes to the picture, both the background texture, the darkening, and the ribbon across the middle with different photo elements.
  • Overlay: Scrub.  I’m not quite sure what it is adding to the picture
  • Frame:  Sexton, providing sort of an uneven frame.

This was accomplished by hitting the random button within Pixlr…

Oh, and the people in the picture… from right to left are Daelynn, Danaya, Mikaela, Heidi, and sitting behind Heidi is Lori.


April 21st family trip to the Carseland park. Daelynn enjoyed reading while others (primarily Brock and Davison) threw rocks into the river.
