Tribute To Fallen Soldiers


I went to the cemetery today to put flowers on my parents graves. Every year on Memorial Day, the cemetery has a special display of flags...one for every soldier who is buried there. On each pole there is a photo and a little life sketch about each soldier, where he served and in which branch of the military etc.

Monument to 9/11


A couple of weeks ago, I visited this beautiful monument, in Davis county, for the first time. It was erected in memory of those who lost their lives on 9/11. This is a fireman, holding a baby. Other areas of this monument pay tribute to the three people from Utah who lost their lives that day. today, I am thinking of all the soldiers who went to battle in the following years since. We honor them this weekend.

Editing





I skipped a few days because I was unable to sign in.   We have had really rainy weather.  I photographed Amorette's twins and it was cloudy,  so I added flowers to give this sweet photo a little punch.  I LOVE it now.   I hope that she does.

Pretty Boy!


This beautiful boy showed off for us.  I talked to him telling him how beautiful he is, and he came right up to me and shook his tail, then turned around to show it off.   It made me mad that some children were chasing him,  and he was screaming.   His mate was in a tree screaming too.   They sound just like Kevin from the movie, "UP"

Swings


 I spent the day at Lagoon with Becky's family.  the girls were dancing for their competition in the morning.  I love this old swing that has been there forever.  I amused myself with photos while standing in line.

Transformation



I just finished a live breakout on clickin mom's.   Taught by Krista Campbell,  it was called, "Transforming the Mundane into Magical"  Here,  I used one of her sky overlays,  to turn this photo into a sunset.  This is the tree that I adore, in Draper Park.  She showed how to work in Photoshop,  which I do not have,  so I figured out my own methods with the programs that I generally use.

More Flowers Today




This beautiful Lilac bush was at the zoo,  and the Tulips and Pansies are on Temple Square.  Such beauty everywhere this time of year!
