Top Photos of 2013: 14 & 15

So another catch-up post.  Such is life.

The pictures for Days 14 & 15 both come from July.  From the exact same trip actually.  They may even have been taken on the same day.  Every year we get together with Amy's side of the family for one big family reunion/vacation over the summer.  This past year we traveled to Beaver Lake in Arkansas for the second time.  The first time was 2 years ago, before we had Stella, so this was her first time to go.  It was really her first big road trip and vacation ever.  She did very well, far better than either of the boys ever did for any car ride (long or short) at her age.

Anywho, it is a beautiful place and we love it.  We always have so much fun hanging out at the lake house and at the lake.  Swimming, boating, lounging, laughing.  It is always a fun and relaxing time.  So, I chose 2 photos from her because I couldn't decide which I liked best.


Like I said before, sometimes I like to take pictures of things other than myself, my kids, and food.  This is Beaver Lake.  I always think lakes make such beautiful pictures.  Serene, quiet, picturesque.  This was a photo I posted to Instagram.  I love me some Instagram.  Partially because it is photography, partially because it is social media, and partially because you can quickly and easily tweak and edit photos to enhance them or make them better.  I love this one.


And now we're back to pictures of me.  And my family.  But I love this shot of Amy and I at the lake.  Just relaxing and easy-going.  I think it captures the whole feeling of the vacation.  Plus, I always enjoy having a new picture of the two of us.  

So there.  5 more left to choose, hundreds left to choose from.  Here's to weeding through pictures and attempting to post on-time!

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.


  1. Hey.
    Ohhh so beautiful and the great image of you.
    Certainly it is difficult to select 20 pictures when you have any number of people.
    Have a real good day.

    1. Thanks so much! Finding 20 great shots has proved to be quite the challenge!

  2. Lovely shots, Dusty. I miss lakes. There aren't any on this island of mine :( And the photo of the two of you captures the feel of unwinding perfectly. Well done!

    1. Thanks so much! Even without lakes, I can imagine an island offers lots of great scenery! :)

  3. With children around we find it difficult to take photos of just the two of us. I've madeit a point to take more husband-wife photos this year! Great picture of you two :)

    1. That is so true. I do try my best to get shots of Amy and I, especially when on vacation or at a special event.

  4. Beautiful photos. Haven't been to any lakes for a long time. The picture of the 2 of you made me realise how little i have of my hubby and I. ill make it a point to do so more.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such lovely comments. Your photos are really beautiful and very inspiring. Will stop by from time to time.
