I have not been very good about keep this blog updated for the past year or so. (Sorry Grandmaman) The last post I wrote about our Christmas holiday in 2016 was our ski trip to Vorlage. Whenever we go to Canada for Christmas, we try to get out, explore, and hike in the winter wonderland. The Mer Bleue Bog trail has always been one of our favorite hikes.

I don't often think of handing a camera to Boogs. He does not have a phone. He does have a camera but we rarely remember to charge it. Earlier this year, my husband and I went on a scuba diving vacation in Belize. Boogs stayed home with my parents. My mom sent me these photos that Boogs took while they were walking the trail around Town Lake and visiting Zilker Gardens.
Here is the little photographer. Nonnie managed to get the camera back for a quick pic of Boogs.
There have been other outings where Boogs has focused a camera lens on the world around him. It is fun to see what interests him. I love the attention he paid to the details. My mom said he really took his time to line up each shot. I think he took some awesome pictures.
Have you given your kiddos a camera to see their point of view?

Four years ago, Boogs and I visited Umlauf Sculpture Garden. You can see the post here. This time we did some of the same activities - scavenger hunt, salt water taffy sculpture, sketching our favorite sculpture, walking the grounds, and learning more about the artwork.
Last time we came, I created a scavenger hunt because I did not know they offered one. During this visit, we used the one provided at the visitor center.
While we were there, Boogs measured himself against a sculpture called The Diver. Boogs was 7-years-old when we went last time and he was almost the exact same size as the statue.
Look how much his arm has grown.
Taffy "sculpture" of The Diver.
