Nap, July 30th 2:35pm

Today we started with Speech therapy at our house from 9-10am
then first day of summer swimming lessons from 10:20-11:00
Then he PASSSSSSED OUT. For 3 hours.
SO dang cute.
Now he is up and gearing up for a BBQ we are having tonight
and more cuddles with his Grandparents that are visiting from San Diego this weekend.
It's a great summer day.

I hope you all are enjoying your day today as well.

I cannot be stopped!

My newest series is beginning to take shape. a few posts ago I shared a few nap photos I took with my iPhone and I just loved capturing that time with Max so much that I decided to make it into a series. So whenever I take him to bed for his nap I wait until he is asleep and then try to get a photo of the two of us. So they are self portraits - and documentation of our naps together. I think this series is important because at some point nap time will end. I want to print these out and make them into a book for my son. And for ME to remember the tenderness, the snuggling, the sweetness of this time with Max. I'd also LOVE to print this and have a show in a gallery. Still considering which gallery might be best for this type of thing....any ideas?? It can be here in Salt Lake City or anywhere in the world. I'm open!

Magic hour

 I'm taking on online eCourse called Superhero Photo. Andrea Scher who is leading the course is one of my all time favorite people I've never met. I've taken her Mondo Beyondo eCourse and when I found out about this one I signed up without blinking an eye. I love her blog, I love her authenticity, I love her caring, thoughtful and playful personality. She is a wise soul. If you get a chance to take an eCourse from her you will not regret it. The assignment here is to take photos during magic hour which is right before sunset. Today I took Max out in our backyard and took these photos. Had to blur his privates as I don't think he would appreciate being exposed like that without his permission.
I'm thinking his JOY is what's Magic here!
who can resist taking this photo! So adorable.

Summer Lovin

I'm LOVING a few iPhone apps these days:

First off - I love the ease of the iPhone 4
Then I love taking photos with the Hipstamatic App. I use the grainy black and white film option.
Then I use the Tilt Shift App to blurr some of the image
and then the Instaprint App to add this old fashion photo edge and the sepia tone

mmmmmmmmm. So yummy.
oh and this nap time with Max was pretty yummy as well!

Max Loves Pink Martini

Max loves Pink Martini! This was the first "real" concert we've taken him to. It was last night at Red Butte Gardens. So beautiful! I've been a fan on Pink Martini since my days living in Portland Oregon about 13 years or so ago. I named this blog Hang on little tomato after a song of theirs. I'm glad Max is a fan. This video proves it!

It's a Mondo Beyondo dream come true. Up on Stage with Pink Martini. Standing by the long haired trumpet player. He is SO very talented. Not my best video work.....but
at the end of this the drummer comes up and talks with Max!

yep - I'm a total geek! Dancing next to some of my favorite musicians of all time and all I can think to do is act goofy? Yep that's me.
