Blessed U R: The Great Ponca West Adventure

When my life gets busy, I find so many subjects to take pictures of. As I have mentioned in a past post, we recently went on a family trip, which provided the perfect occasion to snap away with my camera.

Down my the river this little lady posed for me so nicely.

I was not the only one taking photos!

It is quite an entertaining past time, even if I do take too many. I worry sometimes if I take too many; does it become annoying to have someone constantly looking through a lens at you? I don`t know, but such is the way of a photographer, I suppose. I do think there is such thing as taking too many. For example, if I find something absolutely gorgeous I like to take pictures of it, but also I need to find the line between capturing the moment in a picture and just enjoying the moment. Sometimes I find myself relieved not to have my camera because I am forced to just look with my eyes and appreciate the moment for what it is.IMG_7444 It is such a blessing to have a family, to have a group of people that have watched you grow up and love you; it really is such a comfort. And, many of these people I had not seen in a long while so the conversation was never dull, though it certainly never would be anyway.IMG_7543

The Young Family food is the most famous part of this. See for yourself.IMG_7404IMG_7537IMG_7357 There was a huge, beautiful bridge that we stopped at; it was amazing.IMG_7508

That is high up!
That is high up!
Teehee...
Teehee… we waded in the water under the bridge.

Now that we are home it`s hard to get back into our real lives-it just doesn`t feel the same. Life feels rather…. normal now. But it`s so lovely to have memories, memories that can be looked back on and treasured. Though memories can be painful, I am in full conviction that they`re worth it for the good memories. They are worth it for the things you learn after the fact, the things that look even more beautiful in a different light.
