memories of 2010

Wow!  This past year was full of wonderful times and I took a lot of photos of it all!  Here are some of my favorites from 2010.
It snowed for the second winter in a row.  That’s just crazy for Baton Rouge!  Mason made a cute snowman despite his lack of experience.

We spent a few days in New Orleans while G was working there last summer.

Canoeing down the Buffalo River in Arkansas was so much fun, and it was great to visit with dear friends that moved there last year!

We spent a whole lot of time in Montpelier.  We love it out there in the middle of nowhere.

Alec really, really loves riding his dirt bike.

A four foot alligator was spotted in our neighborhood lake a few times last fall.  Imagine our surprise when we just happened to walk to the lake on the evening a professional gator catcher was called in to catch him!  It was very exciting! IMGP8510w

I got the Canon 5d markii in late October - great decision!  I took this butterfly pic the first day I had it with my 50mm 1.4.

Alec got his learner’s permit – kind of scary!
