Yesterday was my sweet cousin Penelope‘s third birthday! It was the perfect opportunity to practice using my new Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens. Of course, my family can be a bit lame so actually getting some good practice was difficult….
This is Carina’s “happy face.”
Um, this is my uncle. I adore him, but I can not possibly be related to him. Especially after the stories he was telling me about when he was a teenager. They may or may not have involved kittens and parachutes.
Now, I clearly did not take this picture with my new camera lens but instead my uncle emailed it to me. It turns out that this old Indian guy here…he’s my great-grandpa! I was so surprised to learn that this was my grandpa Arthur. Apparently this is a painting made by one of my cousins of a picture of Arthur. I knew that my paternal-grandmothers side had Native American ancestry, but I had NO idea just how Indian we were. I mean WOW. With so much Native American and Italian in my background you would think I could at least hold a tan!
In other news, I was paid a visit by the blog-worlds Fairy Hobmother. If you are a blogger you may have heard of this Fairy and how he sprinkles fairy-dust, in the form of Amazon gift cards, around the blogosphere. Well lucky for me he visited OhRheally! Isn’t that fun? Now, if you happen to leave a comment on this blog post, be sure to leave your URL because the Fairy Hobmother has a habit of visiting commentators who have their own blogs and spreading more love. You could just be granted your very own Amazon gift card!
Now, I want to know…do you have a crazy fun family like me?? I sure hope so!
