What Are You Thankful For?

This year has been full of challenges and changes in the world of Gams. Amongst the tears and tribulations I have found many blessings to be thankful for. I have prepared a feast of images this Thanksgiving. Pull up a chair and enjoy the bounty that fills my life.

Butterflies Are Free

I spent the last two weeks in St Louis visiting my eldest and her husband.  While there, we took a few day trips to places we had not been before.  The weather was freakishly warm (80 degrees in November for goodness sake) so we took full advantage and had some wonderful adventures.  I'll provide more details and photos in posts to come.
 Below are a few images I shot at the Butterfly House in Chesterfield, MO.  This was my first butterfly house experience - I had no idea how breathtakingly beautiful a thousand butterflies in one location could be!  There is a butterfly exhibit at The Hilbert Conservatory in Indianapolis and it is now on the top of my "need-to-see" list!
There is simply no way to capture the experience "on film," but the images will serve nicely as a reminder.  I hope you enjoy!!

Little Boy Blue

We had a family birthday party this last Sunday - my niece Amaya turned 7.  My sister-in-law originally planned the party at a local indoor recreation facility but upon hearing the weather report, she quickly moved it outside.  It was an unbelievable 70 degrees (in November... in Indiana) !!  There is a wonderful play park in Oaklandon that gave the little ones hours of fun!  I have quite a few photos to process and will post more as I get them done.  Niko is the only one I can easily catch when he's on the run, so I tend to get more shots of him - I'm sure it won't be long before he, too, will be able to outrun Gams.  In the meantime, I'll enjoy the
photo ops his short legs afford me!
