Kettle Moraine Part I

by Brittany


Last weekend we drove up to Wisconsin to go camping with some new friends (she keeps a blog over here). Our last camping experience ended in a airport hotel and a shooting in the hall at 3am so pretty much anything would be better but this was actually amazing! So amazing (and there's a french family staying in our apartment) that we are all packed up to head up again as soon as we get off work tomorrow. 

Isn't moraine a beautiful word? I wanted to save it for a child's name but Jesse squelched that idea with the valid point that other kids would call them moron. But still if I ever get to name a character (maybe when you write a book??) it would be Imogen Moraine... but maybe I'll want to use it so its not up for grabs yet!

and took advantage of the dramatic lighting... risking our camera's life in the process. It only got wet once when Jesse tried to stand on his hands underwater. p.s. I was holding the camera at that point, not the man underwater

I was really hoping our new lens would get here before our next camp but doesn't look promising... I'm excited to add part II in a few days!
