Musings of a mother/scuba instructor/graphic designer/musical entrepreneur. Totally in love with my husband (Two Fish) of ten years. We have two beautiful daughters (Red Fish and New Fish) and a nutty dog (Blue Fish) who help make our family complete and completely happy. W have learned to expect the unexpected and are always up for an adventure.
I am enthusiastic about living and learning. I love people who make me laugh. I have an ironic appreciation for the unique and absurd. I am an enthusiastic and untalented tap dancer with a love for new Christmas ornaments,art, the outdoors,the water, music, good books, skiing, and travel. My greatest calling in life is to be a Mom. I LOVE it!
We spent the day off from school at the aviary. We have been taking our sketch books on all of our adventures and we spent the bulk of our time drawing birds. Drawing live, moving animals presented a challenge. The girls would freak out every time their subject moved. The aviary is amazing because it is never crowded and there birds from all over the world. This outing was the last thing on my list of stuff I wanted to do over the summer but it was a better Fall activity. The weather has been gorgeous and we have been making the most of the warm days.
After Two Fish finished work, we met him for a picnic and hike up to a lake near our house. It was nice and steep, just the way the girls like things. We caught the last bit of Fall color in the mountains.
