You Capture - Outside






Taking pictures of outside things is kind of difficult for me. Unlike most of the world, summers in Arizona are not delightful (though to some they are!) but not for me. Growing up in the Midwest I am used to humid summers that are hot (but short) and by the end of August you begin to see the sun setting earlier, the evenings becoming cooler and the smell of autumn in the air. I miss that. A lot. Arizona's summer lasts until October (mid-October last year!) and the heat just continues. Prescott's weather 100,000,000 (etc) times better than Phoenix, but it's still the desert and it's still hot. The-sun-bakes-on-the-skin kind of hot. All that to say, I don't get outside much and when we do it's after 6pm when it is much, much more enjoyable. That being said, I made a special trip just for these pictures (and most of them I drove to the location rather than enjoying the walk. I'll be enjoying it in late October!)

The first few are of our lovely neighborhood (one of the many reasons we love life out here in Williamson.) There's this spot on our walks that is just breathtaking. We mostly see it as the sun is setting, but here it is...during a (very) hot summer day.







Jack enjoying his stroller (and it's wheels!) He could have played all day out there.




Jack's little curly toes that I could munch on daily. How quickly they've grown. Soon they'll be fitting into tennis shoes and hitting a soccer ball and dancing.

Mel - I tried to find an email address for you to find out what your friend's parents names are, but I don't see one. If you would like to write me it's: couponcarriek@gmail.com. I'd be interested to know if the name is familiar to either of us (especially since Peter's brother is with Wycliffe as well). Small world. :-)
