Brick Red { Natalie }

Hello everyone!

This was a very fun week for my family! Sunday we went and rode in the SkyWheel in Myrtle Beach. It's like a ferris wheel but HUGE! The SkyWheel gondalas were completely enclosed and had heaters and air conditioning in it. Pretty cool! It was also twenty stories high. My dad and little sister hate heights, I mean HATE them! But mom really wanted all of us to ride in it so they did. I thought the look on their faces were priceless. Dad kept saying " Don't move, if this thing falls we're in big trouble!" Mom and I got a kick out of it!

This next shot is Tuesday's dinner. I captured this shot while mom was cooking. I did put the camera down for a bit to help, but for the record, I do not enjoy cooking. I would wrather shoot.

One time while we were in Colorado, My grams ( mom's grandma ) Gave us ladies each some king of jewelry of hers. I LOVE roses and noticed this necklace. " I hope you love it as much as I do." She said. This past August my Grams went to heaven. It was really hard on us especially since she lived with us in Oklahoma when the harsh winters of Colorado came and that gave us the time to really bond with her. While mom was pregnant with me she was trying to figure out a name. My Grams used to live on Natalie Street. Mom instantly loved the name and it stuck. She also gave me the middle name, Elizabeth just like my Gram's middle name. I've always liked that I was named after her. When I was little she would help me learn my spelling words and really liked it when I drew pictures for her. She always told me how proud I made her and how special I was because God made me that way. That's something I will always cherish.

I really enjoyed sharing this with you. Have a great weekend!
