I'm back from Vegas. I hope I never have to go back. Vegas is the epitome of sin in every form. I kept expecting God to level the town at any second. I made it out alive though, a bit fatter from all the eating & drinking, and poorer thanks to the roulette wheel.
I did see Hoover Dam though, which was amazing.
This is my 100th post to the blog, in just over a year. I'm having fun with it.
Madeline had her best friend Ariela over the other night. They were both wearing red and both in a cooperative mood, so I seized the opportunity and took a couple photos. They are so cute together. It's fun to watch them crawl around and roar. They're cheetahs you see.
When I had the light set up, I took a confirmation photo of Alex.
I'm off to Las Vegas on Wednesday for a work conference. I'll have lots of free time, so I hope to return with some photos to share. I don't care much for gambling, but I'm looking forward to betting on and watching some football.
Angie's parents arrived yesterday afternoon. It's been a while since they've been here. It's nice to have them in our home. They're here for Alex's confirmation, which will happen on Sunday. Alex's sponsor, her Uncle Kevin, will arrive tomorrow sometime. He's bringing Brett, which is sweet. I always enjoy seeing Kevin and Brett. I wish Lisa and J.P. were coming too, but that would be too much for them I'm sure.
The weather is slowing getting cooler, which is great. Supposed to be in the 50's tonight. perfect.
Two of the shots above were taken with an IR (infrared) filter over the lens. The IR filter blocks all visible light (you can't see through it with your eye). The camera can see infrared light, which makes for some funky colored shots. Pretty cool huh.
Fall is on the way. We've had the air conditioning off and the windows open for the past few days. It's been down in the 50's & 60's at night and up in the 80's during the day. The humidity is down, thank God. The corn is turning brown, the soybeans are turning gold, the garden is about done, the pumpkins are orange. Fall is coming. Sweet.
