Just thought I’d post some images from the big bro in the family of eight I photographed in Cali.  What a handsome lad!  🙂

Having SUCH a fun time in Portland.  Had our mentoring session today (woo hoooo–lots more about that & pics tomorrow).  It didn’t stop there though—dinner with a pal from AZ that relocated to Portland, sat by a fire pit WITH E’s guitar tonight (soooo relaxing), and I tried to edit some pics, but my brain just cannot go on without sleep!

SO much to tell & show!!!

Tomorrow…wake late, photo shoot around our hotel + with a musician at and near the fun[ky] old train station (love it!).  Train to Bellingham.  🙂

Have a super day!  ~m

Loved your email guesses.  🙂

Look at this curious eye!!!

…..So, we got two Betas and a little 2.5 gallon tank for Peach’s room (but it didn’t start out that way)!!!  🙂

We originally went to the pet store because Peach received some $ from her great-grandma for her birthday.  She had been asking for a hamster for a long while & when I saw her with her cousin’s pets (hamster and guinea pig), her loving nature was just SO apparent and she just glowed holding their pets.  She’s a responsible kid and loves taking care of the pets we have at home, so we figured it was time.

Well Pet store #1 only had dwarf hamsters.  The salesman tried to discourage us from hamsters in general (and promote rats or guines) because apparently, hamsters bite!!!  I grew up with tons of friends with hamsters and never remember a crazy biting one! He sent us to find a more docile breed at another store.

So, we ended up heading to Pet store #2.  The salesman there also strongly discouraged us from hamsters, too (even the teddy bear one, which we came to see)!  He kept trying to get one out of the cage and saying “Ow”  “oooh”  “ouch” being overly dramatic so that we would be scared off.  We were.  There was NO WAY, I wanted some crazed rodent around here biting my kiddo!

When we tried to talk about not getting a hamster, P’s eyes welled up with tears.  Hubs started motioning over to the birds and all I could think of was “Nooooooooooooooooooooooooo.”  A bird at a home with a bird DOG???  Uh UH!!!

Even though we have fish at our home already, we asked P if she’d like her very own tank in her room.  She got really excited and loved choosing things to go in the tank.

White rocks, plastic shimmery shells, a castle, flower, a red/pink fish and a blue/purple fish.   I’d like to introduce you to La-La (above), short for Sha-la.

Her blue fish’s name is Lou-Lou, short for Blue-Lou.

Gotta love a creative, adorable 4-year-old.

Have one super day!  ~m

Oh, and the tank looks a little odd because there’s a divider in the middle because Betas love to fight!!!
