Getting old....

No, not the kids, well yeah, the kids too, but jeez, I feel so old now. Celebrated my birthday this past weekend and took the kids to Tahoe/Reno, and had some fun in the snow.

Always gorgeous, love the snow, hate the cold.

On the morning of my birthday, I see the kids over by the window, making hand prints on the hotel window and drawing things.

Sweetest birthday message ever.

We wanted the kids to learn how to ski this time around, so we took them to Mt. Rose for some ski lessons.

It was hilarious watching them go up the automatic elevator thing to go down the slope, all crouched over.

I'd say they had a pretty good time.

    Great pictures! Consider getting them shorter skis next time (a bit lower than the chin); it's easier to maneuver them if they are shorter.

    Happy birthday!

  9. I found your photos on Flickr I think, and I have literally been scrolling through all of them and looking at old archives. Your work is FANTASTIC. Such whimsy and fun.
    Hope you had a wonderful birthday. Your girls are adorable!

    Hi, I've been visiting periodically since David Hobby mentioned on his blog. These have awesome command of exposure, esp. against the sun, well done! Thanks for sharing, has been inspirational since pre-daughter, who is now 9 months.

    Great pictures, again! Makes me want to make (even..) more pictures of our daughter (she's also from China)!
    How did you do the lighting? With one flash? Off-camera? Underexpose the background a bit?

    Hi Carool, yes, light was a small flash except for the last one.
