i couldn't stop taking photos in utah.

the view from the lobby of the Natural History Museum

One morning this week, we met my cousin Tiercy at the amazing and brand new Natural History Museum in Salt Lake City.  It featured dinosaurs and tons of hands-on exhibits for kids.  I didn't get many shots of the kids in action because they all ran in different directions. 

My mom, Liesel, me and Tiercy.

I did manage to pile all the cousins up for a few photos.

Skyler, Laney, Cameron, Tyler, Grant, Ethan and Reedo.
I love having these 4 beauties together.  And the mountains in the backdrop aren't too shabby either. 
lucky me with my siblings.  There are too many miles between us.

I ski with my camera and  I make everyone stop at scenic vistas. 

Parting shot:  That's me lying in the sun in December.  So so warm.  I will miss those mountains.

I love Utah and want to live there when I grow up! It is sooo beautiful there. And I've only been to Zion! Thank you for sharing.

It is gorgeous! Soon, we will have our RV and maybe we can get there. You make me want to take up photography again. Such pretty pictures!

My Dad lives in Teasdale, UT and on my visit this summer I truly fell in love. There is no beauty like Utah.

Quick question about your movies. What software do you use to make them? They are fantastic and I wish I knew how to do that. I have iMovie but haven't taken the time to really learn how to use it.

it's iMovie! I find it very user friendly and it didn't take me long to figure it out. It syncs your videos from iPhoto and then you basically just drag clips into the movie project, add music and titles, and that's it. It takes a while of messing with it to learn how to time the music right and how to cut out parts of the clip or how to do slow-motion, etc., but you can totally do it. It's fun to play with. Glad you like them...thank you!
