Taking Pictures at Night

So while near Death Valley we wanted to try taking some pictures of the night sky. Especially since there aren’t any big cities nearby, so it would be great with very little light pollution. Granted, I am not a great photographer. And night photography is super hard (as I am learning). However, you can see…

Death Valley

Over Thanksgiving break there were so many things that we did. But one of my favorite places that we did was to go to Death Valley. It was beautiful. But don’t just take my word for it. Check out these pictures. See? Isn’t it pretty? I think I should go back someday, just so I…

Mr. Knightley vs. Mr. Darcy

So Monday was Jane Austen’s birthday. I am a huge fan of hers (I *almost* would even venture to say that she is my favorite author…which is saying A LOT if you know what I mean). And I saw this article about why Mr. Knightley is better than Mr. Darcy. And I had a few…

The Grand Canyon

I wanted to show you some more pictures of where we went on our Thanksgiving trip. Not only did we see part of the Grand Canyon when we went to Horseshoe Bend, we also went to the Grand Canyon National Park. Which was pretty awesome. Let me show you. This was our first glimpse of…

Antelope Slot Canyon

For the Thanksgiving holiday my sisters and I went on a little bit of a road trip. This was our first stop, Antelope Slot Canyon near Page, Arizona.┬áCheck out what we saw. This is one of the most photographed slot canyons around. And as you can see I tried my hand at taking a shot…

Maggie Stiefvater is Coming!

In case you all don’t remember…I really like Maggie Stiefvater’s books. In fact, her newest book that has just come out I reviewed recently. And it was really good. But then again I really like all of her other books. So you can guess how excited I am that she is coming to my local…

Rocket Jumping Cups

For the transportation story time I wanted a “science experiment” that let me talk about how things “go”. So I turned to a favorite craft of mine that I call the jumping cups. I decided to do a rocket for the picture (since it went along with the transportation theme). When I first showed the…
