Name that Caption:  I’m Sexy and I Know It.

As most of you know, Cragbaby just celebrated his 2 year birthday a fewweeks ago, and along with that came an array of new big boy toys. A balance bike, a set of (plastic) golf clubs, a fire truck, a couple of bulldozers…and his very own power drill! Actually, the power drill was a part of a tool box that came complete with hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, nails, screws, and of course safety goggles!  The tool box was an immediate hit, but C was pretty leery of the power drill at first.  He enjoyed watching Daddy use it to “fix” his crib, rocking…Read the rest of this entry →

Name that Caption: Dirty Bit

Name that Caption: Dirty Bit

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Name that Caption post.  And, if you’re interested, April M. was the winner of the last one: “A Slightly Awkward Picture with a Pumpkin.”  (April, contact me and I’ll hook you up with a Cragmama sticker if you’d like!)  Anyway, today’s photo was actually taken this past May, while Cragbaby was snoozing at the  crag during the New River Rendezvous. I like this picture because I feel like it captures my little guy’s free spirit.  Play hard, sleep hard – you could call it his motto even.  He’s never been one to pay…Read the rest of this entry →

Name that Caption: A Slightly Awkward Picture with a Pumpkin…

***A few of you got a sneak peek at this post earlier in the week, when it accidentally went out to my email subscriber list on Monday.  For those of you that read it before I got a chance to “unpublish” it, you’ve had time to think up a great caption all week, so I’m expecting great things! Many thanks to all who participated in the last “Name that Caption.”  Grace Chu was the popular winner, although in my opinion Nicole H was a close second…  So today’s pic has an interesting back story that technically began long before we…Read the rest of this entry →

Name that Caption: The Helmet Head Photoshoot

Name that Caption:  The Helmet Head Photoshoot

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Name That Caption post, but although I’m admittedly biased, I do think today’s is pretty darn cute.  This was taken a couple of months ago on a climbing trip to the New River Gorge in West Virginia.  The ever observant Cragbaby has taken an interest in head pieces – climbing helmets, bicycle helmets, sun hats, and of course tupperware containers.  His usual M.O. is to put it over his face first, give a long, echoing shout (a little reminiscent of a dinosaur roar, actually), and then put it on his head, usually…Read the rest of this entry →

Name that Caption: The Snake Whisperer

Name that Caption: The Snake Whisperer

Last week I was flipping through my photo collection while working on another project, when I stumbled upon my pictures from Nepal…and there I sat for a good hour recalling all the stories, mishaps, and blessings from the summer of 2003, when Steve and I spent a few months volunteering in there. Neither of us had ever been out of country before (aside from Canada and the Bahamas, which don’t really count).  While there we did a lot of travelling throughout the country, but our home base was with a local family living in Lalitpur, on the outskirts of Kathmandu. …Read the rest of this entry →
