In the backyard

Every morning (and often in the afternoon too) you can find us in our backyard. We do lots of exploring, playing hide and go seek, bubble blowing running, ball kicking...
 And, of course, take photos.

 It's getting hot so I don't know how much longer we'll be able to keep it up. I am not crazy about this house, but I do love the backyard.

Sweet Shot Tuesday

My first attempt at Sweet Shot Tuesday...

I hope I did it right!
The story behind this photo: My daughter loves lemons and lemonade. We often give them to her from our water at restaurants because it keeps her quiet.

Also added to the iheartfaces photo challenge

Today we drew, as we do many days. 

Have you seen these Crayola Slick Stix things? Wonderful fun for toddlers.

Also we made fish faces

 And we selected Little People to represent Mommy and Daddy.
And we looked beautiful.

I enjoy photographing them. Is that strange? 


A portrait of my husband and best friend..

And even a rare one of me.

We walked around Colonial Williamsburg today. There are always lots of interesting things to see there. One of these days I am going to go up there for a "photo walk" without a two year old screaming that she needs a snack/juice/to go home every 30 seconds...

spring rain

During our daily backyard exploring this morning I came upon this leaf. Had the ground not been wet, I probably could have gotten a better picture by kneeling.
Is it better in b and w?

Or color?

I came home from the gym to find this:

They were watching "Wonder Pets" after a Little People battle. Too cute.

Ft Monroe

We visited Ft Monroe today. An interesting place, and a beautiful day. Edgar Allan Poe was stationed here briefly. And, of most importance to me, plenty of good photo opportunities.

Running free!

I so love this shot I captured today. I am not sure why. I love how it's so sharp. I usually get blur when she runs, but today I was smart enough to use a faster shutter speed (see, I'm catching on!). She loves to run. Sometimes it's hard to keep up. A beautiful, cool (but not cold) and overcast day today. The kind of day I love.

Mother's Day

I am so blessed to have so many wonderful moms in my life. My mom, of course, and my mother in law. But also I have so many mom friends now. I am so thankful to have them in my life, and glad they became mothers!

E made this selection of books last night for me to read to her. I thought her choice was appropriate, in honor of Mother's Day:

 And another book image, just because I love it:

And one more of the reason I celebrate Mother's Day.

We went for a little walk yesterday, as we do many days. The weather is nice this time of year, and it's good to do our walking before it gets too hot. There is a nice field of dandelions down the street from our house, so naturally I had to photograph the action there.

Unfortunately, I was sad to see some nests had fallen out of the trees and some eggs were on the ground. I always hate seeing things like that, it's so sad to me.
