MAKING MEMORIES Lila Kate's photo journal

To whom it concerns, or to whom comes across my "making memories" page. I have a deep compassion to take pictures (LOTS of them). I am learning to delete those that are not great exposure. I take snapshots of animals, family, friends, coworkers. (My coworkers sometimes cringe when I snap pictures of them, and my catchphrase is "I do not know how to delete. You will thank me when we are old and in nursing homes, looking back at these crazy kids and what the hell were they thinking.

So, my pictures may not be professional quality. I am all about making memories. I look back often (sometimes daily) to laugh and cry at different points of my life.

I do like to have my pictures in chronological order, but I may be putting these on here in random order. Bare with me. I will try not to post duplicates or multiples of same image. (That is where I am learning to delete the multiples of the same image.

Well, sit back, and scroll through, comment... please comment on pictures (state your opinions, and whatever). I appreciate the comments more than the just click "like" button. Thank you

Wirtz Family

My name is Lila Kate, and I have two older brothers and one younger sister. Born to an Episcopal priest (yes they can marry and have kids). My mom was a social worker for the state in Employment and Training Office. My mom thrived on each one of my siblings to have our own likes and dreams. Unfortunately, mom and dad passed away, but the Wirtzpoluzza lives on. My siblings and I, we make sure we all get together with each of our families for various family fun weekends. There will be many pictures from those adventures on this post.

Also, I will have post of my daughters, and grandson.

And my random posts of random pictures, I will be driving along, and I will pass something, and if I can safely turn around to get a picture of those random things, I WILL!

Thank you for looking and your comments are much much appreciated!

Bless your hearts

I spent five summers (one week) at a religious camp called St Michael's Conference. This conference was full of religious discussions, talent shows, square dancing (don't laugh, it is a blast), and ending with the Pageant which is why the picture of David as St Michael the Archangel... this pageant started with Fr Jack's singing of "Prepare ye the way of the Lord" Its totally amazing
I was a Girl Scout and proud of it, and spent 3 summers at Camp Green Eyrie (or Green and Hairy) thats a story for another day... I was an avid camper! I loved and still love camping. SO many awesome memories.
