Black and White Wednesday "Up North"

Zzzzing! Where did that week go?

I've got so many posts that haven't yet made it here - they may just be old news and I'll have to sneak them in without you looking.

Between the drama (of the highest order no less) of Dahlia finally losing her second front top tooth - oi vey - it took all my self-control not to yank that baby out of there and end our her misery!


attending Dahlia's 4th (that's fourth, people) ballet recital - the week just flew.

So we grabbed a few hours late Sunday afternoon and headed up north to Mr Tremblant for an over-nighter as Dahlia had a school day off on Monday.

And I grabbed (hmmmm....doing a lot of grabbing lately. What does that mean?) a few pictures while we were there.

This was the view from our balcony at about 8:45 in the evening.

Had to show you the color of the sky.

Some great architecture. (Felicia...are you drooling?)
Ballet-Tremblant 104

Ballet-Tremblant 106

And look who wants out? "Hey Mom....what's out there?"
Ballet-Tremblant 114-2

Ballet-Tremblant 116-2

Ballet-Tremblant 121-2

Ballet-Tremblant 130-2
OK....all together now...


Don't forget to scoot on over to Lisa's for some great photography.

the long road

I have a whack of photos from our tiny trip to Tremblant that I'll post later in the week in color.

That is, if this week doesn't zzzzzing by me!

I'm super behind on my blog posting too. Totally failed to blog about Kindergarten graduation! Bad blogger mommy!

Your photos are beautiful (as always). All of the lines and angles and corners on buildings play up so well with the stark contrasts of black and white.

Love the door reflections too!

See you in 7 weeks! ;)

Great pictures as always! I have been a big fan of your blog for some time now and I'm super excited to meet you in person along with the other girls! I'm a little nervous to be around such great photographers such as yourself!

Kayce said...

Hope your week is wonderful!

Maryvel Friesen said...

Okay it's my turn to be totally jealous! I so wish I could be attending Lisa's workshop too. You are going to learn so much and on top of it meet some really great woman. Hopefully one day we'll be able to meet too. Love your photos today. The location looks fabulous! Yes your little ones are way too cute!

Yes I am all the photos but the architecture and angles...dreamy :)

Our family said...

What a week indeed!!!!!

How exciting Dahlia! In one week you lost your tooth AND you had a dance recital!!!!!!!! Way to go Sweetie Pie!

Now, seriously Wanda... I bet that your week has indeed raced by! And your heart along with it! I can understand the drama involved in the 'glorious' loose tooth adventures! And the swell of all the emotions involved in watching our little ladies in a recital is incredible.

I LOVE the photots of your getaway! As always, I sighed at the sheer cuteness factor of your little ladies!!!!

Enjoy! xoxxo


Amy said...

That last picture.... AWWWWW! That's such a wonderful moment. Great capture!

Gail said...

I completely understand about the tooth drama, as Grace has only lost 4 teeth so far...and she has about 4 more loose right now.

And how great that you could spend some time away for a long weekend, love ALL of these. But the last one is my absolute fav!!! too cute!

Hope you're having a great week!

The architecture is beautiful and the BW compliments it so well. The girls are beautiful too in BW. Nice work.

Casey said...

Hey!!! I'm so looking forward to meeting you at the workshop! You have a beautiful family! And I love your photos... the architecture shots are divine!

Mama Hen said...

Wonderful photos Wanda! I love the picture with your children looking out of the door. Beautiful! Have a great day!

Robin said...

my favorite picture is the one with your children looking through the door. Super sweet pictures!!

Carol and Taylor said...

What a beautiful town to escape to! However, as beautiful as it is, the beauty of the town can't compete with the view INTO the windows and those 2 cutie pies on the balcony. Glad you had fun.

Ellie said...

oooooohhhhhhh love all the beautiful architecture, perfect in b&w (though I do love seeing the gorgeous skies!)- but your beautiful girls is my fave :)

I'm always behind posting. I've given up.

Mama Hen said...

Hey Wanda! I used to sing when I did theater. I am more of a character than anything! I love to perform! But I have never considered myself a singer. I just love to sing, especially with my daughter and when I taught elementary school. I sing with my daughter all day long! I am more of an actress and my gift is dancing. I just ended up doing a lot of musicals and of course that included singing! That is wonderful that you are a singer! Your children must love it! Tell me more about it when you can! Have a great night!
