Orange in Orange

Yesterday, Gunnar and I took a walk around a fun little city called Orange.

We found lots of things.

We found good nooks and crannies for hiding.

He kept telling me to "find" him behind this sign post. Hysterical.

We found this great boutique. I loved all of its color and its name: Two Little Monkeys. That's Jaren's nickname for Gunnar, Monkey. We stayed and played for a while. There were cute things to look at.

Gunnar found this, and almost rode it out. ;)

We found a place to have our toes done. I couldn't convince my Little. He wanted to keep on walking.

We found a new friend.

We found a place to rest. For a second.

Then we found a great place to eat. (The same bagel chain we ate at after our park day last week. Yum-a-licious!)

We were number 41.

He was singing while we waited for lunch. "Jingles Bells. Jingles Bells. Jingles Bells. Hey!" I didn't have the heart to tell him Christmas is over! ;) Plus I love his little enchanting voice.

Finally.

We shared.

Sometimes Bobby doubles as a napkin.

We cleaned our plates and then it was time to keep walking.



Photobucket


We found some accesories to match his shirt.

Then it was time to head home, but not before we took a few more pictures.

Today I told Gunnar I wanted to give him a shot so he would stop growing and stay little forever.

"If you stay little then we can be best buddies and go on adventures everyday! Do you want to stay little so we can be best friends forever?"

"Yea, Mommy Princess a Nunnie little best friends forever with Mommy."

I love you so much little boy. I love the days we get to spend together. Thank you for blessing my life with all things bright and wonderful. xoxo Mommy Princess

Kam,

I love your creativity in shots to be sure, but I love even more the play on, and contrast in color you capture. Areas of focus "pop". Not sure it is something intentional on your part or just part of natural abilities. I absolutely love picture #4 as well as the one with G-man inside the toy store on the bike. Go Princess Nuz!!

I think it is so neat that you have all these permanent records of just simple, happy days via your pictures.

I love the photo with the RCA dog, and the one with the orange in the back. The bagel one is my favorite--but probably just because I'm really hungry right now!

Gunnar is a lucky guy to have such a wonderful date on the town. Little forever or not, I'm sure you two will always be the best of friends!

Hi Kam! Thanks for your comments on my blog! I LOVE your pics - the colors are amazing and the your composition is awesome. Looks like you need to tell me your secrets. I was just playing with my pics. I use a Nikon d80 and I was using Aperture priority Auto mode and was working with the exposure settings. I was going inbetween +1.0 - +2.0. My husband found me a book specifically for the d80, so I have been reading that. Any good suggestions on reading? You really do beautiful work! Have a great day -

Amy
