"Light is the first of painters. There is no object so foul that intense light will not make it beautiful." Ralph Waldo Emerson
About two weeks ago I was visiting Suzanne's blog "A brush with color" (fantastic blog by the way!) http://www.abrushwithcolor.blogspot.com/ and she had this quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson. It inspired me to take some pictures of objects/things beautified by the sun. I love this picture of Fiona even though it is about three years old. I took it at our old house in Cleveland. She was watching the neighbor outside and I snapped this photo with my film camera and later scanned the image into the computer.

We spent the day at my inlaws having a picnic and watching the kids jump in and out of the pool. Sometimes it is really nice not to have to be rushed anywhere! Before we headed out for the day Fiona and Alexa wanted to give Andrew his Father's day gifts. Fiona made him a lovely tie (as in the kind that go around the neck) card at school. She was very proud of it. She would not however, allow me to take a picture of it! I took some of the girls painted rocks and embelished a picture frame for Andrew for his office at work. The girls were very excited about it, they so look up to their daddy! Fathers are so special through the eyes of a young girl: a father has the ability to determine how his daughter will not only see him when she grows up but how she will see herself and the world. That is not something to be taken lightly...
