About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

Home Town Weekend

**EDITED** Do the castle and 4-wheeler pictures seem to be a bit cool? It was almost nighttime when I took these photos.

It was such a lovely evening so we decided to go for a walk and go to our town's summer fair. As we were walking, I noticed (but Choua mentioned it first) that the breeze was brisk vs. the humid summer breeze that we've had all summer. Autumn was clearly reminding us that she was on the way. It was a pitiful little fair, but I'll never forget how happy we were tonight.

Roan really liked the four wheelers. It was a bit fast so I was a little nervous, but I could see the joy in his little face as it sped up.

The rides were more expensive than at Como Town, but at least the jumping castle was free. On another note, I've been hearing Roan mention Castle a lot lately...referring to White Castle.

My baby got some air!

I was inspired by my friend and awesome photographer, Shoua (http://auohs.blogs.com/mydailydose/ ), to take some motion shots of the rides. Mine does not compare, but thought I'd show a couple.


Choua took these of Roan and me going down the slide. Roan loved it so much that he went down it twice!

Some food from the fair.

And finally...time to say good-bye.
