Family, food, and photos - a perfect weekend. My niece and bro were in town to visit our cousin's newborn baby, so we ate and drank and ate some more, built a windup zombie robot out of clay, and watched Mariana get up to all kinds of mischief. Also, check out the animated gif I made of the Zombie Robot toy.
Mariana has a staredown with a clay windup motion robot we built.

And introducing my cousin's 2 week old baby girl, Madeline! She's soooo tiny and adorable!
And because there's nothing more magical than polaroids, here's one shot with the SX-70 on Impossible Project Colour Film.
The last time I shot a wedding, I made a vow that I would only do it again if there was a photobooth involved. So when Rob and Andrea asked me to shoot theirs, I made it happen. I'll just let the photos do the talking.
And because this was the only time during the entire day that we had any down time, Dean and I got in on the fun as well.
We took a short but fun scramble up Yamnuska today. 900m of elevation gain, spread over an interesting mix of forest, a rocky chute, a lengthy trudge up steep rock face, navigating a rock wall with anchored chains, and then a run down the frontside scree slopes.
My daytime boss!
My real boss... a much more frightening woman.
Beer at the summit... warm beer has never tasted this good.
And the best part of this hike: running down the front side scree slopes.
