Day 200-201

I'm doing another entry before I go too long again!

Day 200 July 19th

I'm sort of in shock that I made it 200 days! I went to the annual street fair in downtown Fargo.  I met my mom there.  I was trying to find fun things to photograph, while I was people watching I saw my first grade teacher Mrs. Swenson (LOVED HER) so I took a picture of her and her husband.  I also got one of my mom in her hat, and a parrot on a ladies shoulder.  The dog is a mastiff that belongs to some hockey parents I know, she is huge but a sweet dog!

Day 201 July 20th

Tristan was downstairs practicing his saxophone and I decided to get some cool close up pics of his hand on his sax.  I really like the way they turned out.

Days 185-199

Finally an update. I've been shooting daily but just haven't felt like editing or uploading. I also have been in a bit of a slump with photographing due to concentrating on getting my eating and diet under control.

Day 185 July 4th
I had planned on taking some great fireworks pictures, but that didn't happen thanks to our friends the mosquitoes, and the crowd of people where we were.  So I settled on a sunset picture, and vow to get fireworks next year.

Day 186 July 5th
The boys and I went fishing at a local lake.  It was our first time fishing in ND. We caught two walleyes right away but didn't catch anymore, Aaron also caught a big bass that we threw back. Unfortunately we had some trouble with cleaning the fish and ended up with none. 

Day 187 July 6th
I had a friend ask me if I'd take pictures of her family.  Her siblings were here from far away and they hadn't been together in a while.  I also took some pictures of just her family.  My favorite is of her two kids, Tristan plays hockey with her son and his little sister is the sweetest girl.

Days 188 and 189 July 7th and 8th
Not sure what happened these couple of days, but I didn't get around to doing pics so ended up with just quick pics of Emma both days. 

 July 8th
July 9th Day 190
It was that time of year for the Red River Valley fair, Tristan didn't want to go since rides make him sick.  I will usually go for a day but never made it.  I did take a picture from my favorite sunset spot of the fair against the setting sun.

July 10th Day 191
Wasn't sure what to photograph but went outside and found this little guy who has been eating my marigolds in my flower bed.  I love his little tail, it didn't take long for him to realize I was there with the camera before he ran away. 

July 11th Day 192
I went out with some friends in downtown Fargo, we went to a really cool wine bar, I only had my phone with and this was in one area of the bar with a loft above it and I thought it looked cool.  I kept wishing I had my big camera. 

Day 193 July 12th
My next door neighbor has some gorgeous lilies that come back every year.  Her flowers make mine look like weeds, she has a much greener thumb than I do. 

Day 194 July 13th
I'm currently working on losing weight, and as of this post have lost 11.4 pounds, I find the summer fruit very fun to photograph. 

 Day 195 July 14th
Just a glamor shot of miss Emma in the backyard.
Day 196 July 15th
Tristan was able to have his best buddy Zach stay overnight, and they went golfing both days. I bribed them into letting me take a picture of them.

Day 197 July 16th
Just the sky after the sunset, it was nice and pink. 

Day 198 July 17th
This was the night I did my weigh in at WW, couldn't think of anything to take a picture of so I used my activity tracker that I wear every day and my WW key chain that I received this night for attending 4 meetings! 
Day 199 July 18th
I took some pictures of two of our backyard neighbor puppies, Clyde was confined to the deck because he just had surgery and Charlie the German Shepard was tied in the back yard, Emma likes to bark at both of them when she goes out.

Day's 172-184 Half Way There!

I've been in a bit of a slump trying to get interesting pictures.  I got a few I liked and a few that were just desperation of finding a picture for the day.

Day 172 June 21st
It was my birthday so I did a couple selfies using my tripod and I took one of the cake my dad bought me.

Day 173 June 22nd
Aaron's mom and Grandma were here to visit and they brought a game called Farkle for us to play. I had fun trying to get a picture of the dice falling. 

Day 174 June 23rd
Captured this picture of Tristan going on a walk with Emma. 
Day 175 June 24th
Captured a picture of Tristan with his Grandma Cindy before she left the next day. 
Day 176 June 25th
My lazy beautiful dog

Day 177 June 26th
Just a quick snap shot of Tristan, this was the best I got.  It was not a good picture day.

Day 178  June 27th
This is the day I went back to Weight Watchers, it was a little rough.  I took a picture of my stir fry and of the crazy sky that night.

Day 179 June 28th
Some of my flowers in my flower bed. 

Day 180 June 29th
My co-worker Lynelle has a new kitten and her name is Gracie and I had to get a couple pictures of her while she was still little, I also took a couple of her older cat Chloe.

Day 181 June 30th
Woohoo I'm half way through the year! This was a night of some Emma pics but I wanted to just get some of her adorable details.

Day 182 July 1st
Another slow picture day so more of Emma
