Two of a Kind

I had all these grand plans for this week's Theme Thursday. I was going to take my camera everywhere and snap as many photos of coupled items as I could find. Then I got hit with a double whammy: the summer cold (for me and Sam) and a massive heat wave. I've barely left the house since Saturday. I've barely left the couch since Tuesday. Luckily I was able to find a few shots that fit the bill.

The two ladies of the household, at least for the time being. This was one of the only shots from our photo shoot that came out even marginally acceptable. Luckily it was a sweet one!

Here is Sam on his new two wheeler! We've been meaning to buy him a bike all summer, and we finally got around to it. He loves it, as you can plainly see. His sister is a little pissed, but she'll live.

Especially if he keeps pushing her around on his old tricycle! I can't get my two kids to sit together for a photo, so I have to catch them on the fly!

Here are two little ladies at lunch. Lucy and Lily are only five months apart, and their younger siblings will only be about one month apart, so I'm hoping for more fun lunch dates to come! Even if some of the diners will be eating at the milk wagon.

And finally, from our one single trip out of the house since Monday. A pair, salt and pepper. Yesterday afternoon SOB suggested we take the kids out to eat if I could muster up the strength. I was only too happy to oblige, if it meant I didn't have to make dinner! We went to a diner nearby, and even though SOB was a little mortified at my constant clicking, I took a bunch of photos before our food arrived. Especially of the table condiments. I couldn't decide which processing I liked better, so I thought I'd put it to a vote!

What did you find two of this week? Hopefully at least two minutes to play along!

Literally two minutes worth from me in between everything! Love these shots. The b&W of the two girls is adorable and the salt and pepper work very well for 'Two'! Hope the heat lets up soon. We've been experiencing an early spring too...70F last weekend and it's the middle of winter!!

Cute pics! I like the color one of the salt and pepper...has a 50's feel to it! :)
