Planck's Place

Welcome. If you are here, then more than likely it means you were invited. What is a blog you say? Well, it's a type of website run a bit like a news letter. I can edit and add things as often as I like. So in a way it's a journal online. I created this just to share with our family and friends across the miles. Check back often and add comments when you feel so compelled. Most of the photos are of Emily, but if you look often enough, you will catch the occasional one of Tony and I.

For the birds

We have babies! I was a bit worried about the little guys in this heat, last year we had a batch that didn't make it, so I stuck a nail in the side of the house and mounted a desk fan on it aimed at the birdhouse about 2 feet away, the parents didn't mind and it did help cool things off, ya I am a sap... It's pretty interesting to watch the sparrows, they feed the babies in a colony, who knows who the real parents are, cause there are at least a dozen adults coming to feed constantly, they actually wait in line to feed next along our fence out back! It was so hot, different species of birds were accomodating each other for the bird bath, this robin bathed in the middle of the sparrows, while a blue jay waited one the ground and a crow on the fence behind (no doubt waiting for me to leave, not the little ones, he took over as soonas I left)

Summer Splashin'

Here's some cooling off shots, we put the 8 foot wading pool up for Emily yesterday, even though she relly can use a bigger one, she is thankful to have this one to play in still!


Oh the carefree days of summer have arrived, and it is HOT I tell you, that photo of the thermo is in the shade!

I spiced up the color, added the bubble on the wand, then added photos of her dressed in her fairy wings to the bubbles, I still may work on it more, I will post if I change it...

Do you believe in Faries?

Emily got a pair of fairy wings for her birthday, and is living in them these days, here's a few fun shots....

Happy Father's Day!

To Tony and all you Dad's out there, Happy Father's Day to you.

We spent the day lounging around mostly, went to brunch, went to the park, then went to see the movie Cars, a way cool day, hope you liked it Dad!

Fun with ducks...

I had some fun shooting the ducks while Tony and Emily played at the park

Emily's Birthday party

Saturday was Emily's birthday party. Lots of kids came, and she got lots of great gifts! Thanks to all...
And happy birthsday to Emily!


Emily discovered that if she spins with wand in hand, it makes bubbles too... What is it with kids blowing bubbles that is so fun to photograph?

Emily got herself a brand new pair of roller blades, these are her very fist, and her first time ever trying them out! Stay tuned for bloody knee photos and scraped hands! (lol)

photo disco Mama, pretty in pink

Yep, someone has attitude!

New Skates!

Emily just aquired her very first pair of roller blades. She loves them, and is even "out on her own" after one day. So far no falls, but it's coming I am sure. Here's some pictures.
