Death Valley, March 2014 (76.365 – 80.365)

Jared and I took the kids camping in Death Valley for the first time this Spring Break. We’d never attempted it before because we knew it wouldn’t be as interesting to them as it is to us, but this year we asked what they’d like to do, and they both were very excited to go :) We spent 5 days there exploring, hiking, and taking photographs together. They were OBSESSED with taking pictures :) I haven’t even downloaded their pictures onto the computer yet!

72.365 – I finally finished “Gone Girl.” I suppose it could have ended in a worse way, but compared to all of the hype, it was just meh to me. I often feel that way about the latest book everyone is raving about. I rarely love it as much as everyone convinces me that I will.

My husband built me a camera closet! We used the coat closet near our front door (which never really housed any coats…) and converted it into a storage closet for my gear. First he installed a few shelves where I keep my Pelican case and other bulky items. Then, he put in several $3 Ikea spice racks to hold lenses and other gear.

I told him that I want to close and lock the door so it all will stay clean and organized forever!

It’s been a long week. I’ve been sick the strep throat at the beginning of the week and the stomach flu at the end. It was BAD. But, it’s Saturday morning, the sun is shining, and we’re all home and hanging out together. So I’m happy :)

Last Sunday we went Jeeping in the local mountains. It’s always pretty go drive up to a high enough elevation to be above the clouds.

The coke machine at work. Every time I go into this room when the lights are off, I always think it might look cool to take a photo of just the light of the coke machine. But I never tried until this day.
