Hey batter batter!
Swing batter batter!
Summer fun starts with baseball. Its fun tagging along with a friend. She has never played baseball but when you are the daughter of a photographer you get thrown in the mix and placed as a model for a future event!
-the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.
-the ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.
-the part of the mind that imagines things.
Six and Seven. Those are some magic numbers. These two have the best time imagining together. They dress up and play imaginary games. Its incredible to watch little kids play and sometimes the things they think up are great!

This seven year old certainly makes a statement. She likes to pick out her own clothes and she likes to put together outfits that often make me cringe. I usually tell her to change, but sometimes something in me embraces her sense of fashion. The fact that she can create something, whether matches or not this is her. I try my hardest to hang on to these moments because they won’t last. She won’t be seven forever. She won’t always create outfits like this.
Taking pictures of these small moments are so important. They won’t last. But these pictures will capture a moment in time that I get to remember forever. I get to look at these pictures and see her attitude, her style and her personality.
In the life of a seven year old, sometimes you come home, get a drink of water and act silly.
When you are seven you have lots of silly things to say or do!
My dad’s backyard is home to several frogs.
My daughter loves frogs. Almost everytime she goes over to his house she checks on the frogs.
Here is her adventure with frogs!
So….I lost count of the days.
I haven’t been as good about taking pictures. Life has been a little crazy lately and its been a struggle to make time to take pictures.
Easter 2017 was a good one. We went to two Easter Egg hunts that were ones for the books!
We hope you had a Happy Easter!
A couple of weeks ago we made home made ice cream.
We went to the store for ingredients to make S’more Ice Cream but we found a fresh strawberry stand on the side of the road and came home with a half box of strawberries. So we ditched the S’more Ice Cream idea and went for Strawberry.
My husband is wonderful in the kitchen and he decided to teach Ava the skill of making home made ice cream. Here is there adventure together.
This week is spirit week!
I have been so far behind on my personal project because I moved and I’m in the process of selling my house.
Literally the last few months have been nuts. In August I met the most incredible human being. We’ve been together ever since. We’ve encountered cancer and surgery and getting married and moving. Its been a crazy whirlwind of an experience but I am with the love of my life. He has been so amazing and so supportive. I can’t imagine my life without him in in.
Miss A hasn’t missed a beat and while we’ve encountered some adjustment, she has been doing really really well.
Yesterday I broke out the camera for Spirit week. It was mix match day.
On Wednesday its Ski day.
Miss A is lucky to live close to some of the best mountains in the United States for Skiing and even luckier that her school has a ski program!
So every Wednesday for five weeks during the spring she goes skiing. She loves it. She doesn’t like to leave. She learned how to ski backwards!
This crazy girl didn’t slow down enough for me to get really good pictures, so these will have to do.
Time is just flying by over here in the Lund household.
At the end of January my then boyfriend and I decided to get married. We kept it a secret (except from Ava, who told a whole bunch of people). It was a mutual decision we came to together, and we were getting married for us, not for anyone else so we decided to have a quiet wedding. In downtown Reno, it wasn’t hard to find a place to get married.
We eventually told my dad and a few close friends. Then we traveled to Oregon to tell his family. They had no idea. We sat them down at dinner the first night we arrived and told them the good news. They were instant grandparents and uncles which they were over the moon about.
After we arrived back home we told more people about our life change.
