A Week of Best Shots

Last week was weird. It was hot, it was cool. It was sunny. It was rainy. We did a lot of playing and a lot of gardening. Here are some of my favorites from the week!

I love in-the-swing photos. Especially because since I take a lot of them I can go back and reference old ones. Like this! That photo was taken just over a year ago, and her love for swinging has only grown. Even if she spends our entire playground adventure on the swing she cries like a maniac when it's time to go. I can't even put her on the ground because she'll just run back and scream 'A-MOAR SWINGIN' NOW!' between sobs. Despite the hysterics, it's adorable.

Speaking of adorable, this is my son's concentration face. After spending the past two months playing basketball every day, I'm so relieved he's discovered baseball! Thanks Jake! For a few days I was pitching a wiffle ball to him, but after being hit a few too many times with a line drive, we invested in a T. 

I swore I would never plant annuals. Then I saw these gerber daisies. I could sit and try and rationalize this decision, but truthfully? Prrrrrrreeeeeettttttttty!

Finally, my boy again. He occasionally smiles when he sees the camera and if I'm quick enough I can catch it. He has grown so much in the past few months, and when he's out running and wearing his baseball hat, I search his face for glimpses of the baby he once was. All I have to do it look into those blue eyes and it all comes flooding back. That's why I choose this as my best shot.

nice pictures! I had to smile at the first. Kids in swings just bring back so many great memories...guess I still remember that!

OMG he is so grown up all of a sudden!!!!! Beautiful shot of him.
Love your gerbera (as we call them) too. I love them so much my bridesmaids had them in their bouquets at my first wedding :-)Bright red ones with black centres.

I am so jealous of that Tee. It's genius!

I'm buying one asap.

Sammy looks so grown up lately. I noticed it in that picture in the Easter clothes but I thought it might be a fluke. Nope.

And thanks for the link!
