Dayne and I decided to enter the Annual South Jordan Art Show this year. Dayne entered two sketches he had done, one of a hawk and one of a tiger. I submitted two photographs: one taken in the jungle in San Juan last Feb., and the other a tunnel in Central Park, NY last spring. This was our first time submitting to an art show and didn't know what to expect. We did it for the experience. Well I went to walmart and picked up a few cheap frames and turned them in to be judged on Friday. The judges were from out of town so they wouldn't be bias. There were different categories such as painting, photography, sculpture, etc. for Adult, Teen, and Youth divisions. On Monday Dayne and I attended the awards reception and were so surprised when they called both our names. Dayne had won second place in the youth division for his sketch of the Hawk, and I placed second in the adult photography category for "Light at the End of the Tunnel".

I received a 50$ cash prize.

On the April 2011cruise we took a bunch of photos in Central Park because it was so pretty and had great lighting in the late afternoon. The girls recently got their braces off and wanted to take advantage of dressing up, and being tan...so we had a couple photo shoots. They are both so photogenic I had to include all of them cause I couldn't pick and choose. If you want a copy of one let me know.
Maybe it's Maybelline....
Dayne loved watching the guitarist

Actors from the "Blue Planet" show about mother nature. It had the coolest scene changes and effects including a tree made of people that came to life, desert, underwater, fish tank, rocky mountains with trampolines, etc. We loved it.
