Park Amusement features Nathan this past weekend on the car ride at Oaks Park. It was great fun to watch he and Claire experience the day along with his parents and my Mom. I’m excited to present one of my favorite young people as the subject of the latest Image of the Week.
The weekend was full of fun activities and photo opportunities, but this one was my clear favorite. Our weekend started with Claire & Ethan bowling on Friday night. Saturday was the first visit to the Multnomah County Fair at Oaks Park. Claire and Nathan had great fun on the fair grounds and then the amusement park midway. Their favorite rides were the roller coaster and the airplanes. This image was on the car ride right after their first roller coaster ride while they were still full of adrenolin. This capture of Nathan stands out for me because he (much like his father) is very difficult to catch with a face full of joy. He is a big super hero fan so to catch him with such a great smile on a face painted like spidey made it an instant classic. It becomes my latest Prime Image and the first captured with my recently won D7000.
The weekend continued with more fun activities captured in photos and video. Claire and Ethan both walked on water in giant plastic bubbles filled with air. We bowled again, visited the park, barbecued, visited the fair again, and generally had a very nice weekend. All the while we wished Michelle had been able to share it with us remembered those who gave so much so we could have the freedom to enjoy our freedom with family and friends.
