Day 24 Photo Challenge

Today's posts on a color scheme. I chose to take a photo of my garage. We did most of the packing, except breakables, and moved the boxes to the garage once they were full. It is very full since we leave on Saturday. Ahhh!!!!

Day 23

Today's post was on something that reminds you of childhood. I chose to use a picture of my boys playing in the water. I remember many summer days growing up laying in the sprinkler trying to stay cool. Today was actually a beautiful day and almost a little chilly for water play. The boys had fun though. The Baby did not want to get sprayed so once he found his little puddle he was good.

Today was about the people we love. I am so lucky to have such a loving and fun family. For my photo, I chose my boys. This picture was taken at Easter. In less than a month we will be adding another boy.

Day 21 Photo Challenge

For today's challenge, we are to take a photo of the sunrise or sunset. I was up at sunrise with The Baby, who has not been feeling well today, but I forgot. So I took one of the start of our sunset, mainly because I was thinking about it and knew I would forget if I waited for a colorful shot.

Day 20

Today's challenge is of something we like. Since it's Saturday, we went to the Farmer's Market for once last time here in Ohio. Came home and made Bruschetta, sliced a cucumber, and some mozzarella. A delicious, fresh lunch.

Day 16-18 Photo Challenge

So, I may have mentioned before that I do not own a fancy camera. The camera I do have us very basic and since getting the iPhone in December, I use that mainly. The last few days have been to use light, day 16 was light trail and 17 was use of light as well. These I could not seem to capture one my phone :(. However, I was able to join in today's, which was a show of emotions. I took this photo of The Baby about a week ago. If he is waken up from his nap by anything, he cries for about an hour not wanting a thing!!!! It is rather frustrating and funny. You hand him his paci, he throws it then reaches for it all the while getting more and more angry. The last time he did this, I snapped a picture and was able to "show emotion" for today's challenge.

Day 14 and 15 Photo Challenge

Yesterday's challenge was to focus on the eyes. I chose a picture of The Baby I took back in November. He was peeking around his stroller to see my mother. For day 15, we were to do what we wanted. My friends husband and mine are gone this week for work so we are spending about everyday together. Today, the boys were jumping beans!!

Day 12 Photo Challenge

Today was a little, ok, FAR from my knowledge of photography. We were to take a bokeh photo. I do not have a fancy camera or even really know what type that is except that the background is blurry with a focus point. I cheated and downloaded an app to help me out :/.

Day 7-11 Photo Challenge

So I'm a little behind on posting my photos :/. We have been very busy around here getting things ready for our move in two weeks!! Crazy!!!!! We are going to miss our friends do much but looking forward to our next adventure :).
So, day 7 was a silhouette photo, which I was not able to get...a portrait of my oldest was as close to a silhouette I was going to get.
Day 8 was a close up shot. Here I tried to get our youngest but he was moving around so much it didn't turn out how I had hoped. Oh well...he's still cute!
Day 9 was from a distance. We went to a friends house the other day to play and the boys had so much fun in the bounce house. The Baby LOVED it when the big boys were not in there! (I can't seem to find that photo at the moment :/)
Day 10 was anything we wanted. A friend of mine helped write a book so I took a picture of that :)
Day 11 was a black and white photo. I took one the other day of our sweet little boy. He was swinging away having the time of his life. I love his smile and how little, yet big, he looks!

Day 6 Photo Challenge

I am far from being a photographer so I tried my best to get our shot for today, a low angle shot. We just got back from a local farmers market with loads of yummy fruits and veggies. Today I'm making a fresh Strawberry Rhubarb pie. I cannot wait for dinner tonight!!! Here is my attempt at a low angle shot of my strawberries and rhubarb.

Day 5 Photo Challenge

Today was an interesting challenge. We got to take a photo of whatever we wanted. It was fun to see all the different things we were up to today, what each of us thought would be interesting to post. For me, it was the delivery of our boxes to start packing. The adventure is about to begin!!

30 Day Photo Challenge

One of my friends started a group to challenge us to take a photo, already decided what the photo would be for the day, for the next 30 days. Today was the first day and it was a self portrait. All I hope is that I remember to check her posts on what the photo is for the day. Here is my portrait for today...

Last Day of School

Yesterday was The Boys last day of Pre K...for this year.  He will go again next year since he is only 4.  A friend of mine suggested dressing him in the same outfit he wore for the first day of school.  She did it with her son and it was so fun to see how different the clothes fit, how small they were.  So, I did!!

Strawberry Picking

Today, I took the boys to a local farm to pick strawberries. There is nothing better than fresh strawberries. They are so sweet and delicious!!! I wasn't sure how The Baby would do, but he had fun. He picked a few red ones, green ones mainly and tried to eat a few. The Boy, however, knew exactly what to do. He looked for the biggest, reddest strawberries he could find. Everyone one he picked he said, "oh this one looks great mommy!". It was a beautiful day to go pick our berries. I hope to make it out again very soon!

Mother's Day

The Boy came home from school on Thursday so excited about his Mother's day gift for me. I asked if he wanted to wait until Sunday for me to open it, but he couldn't. When I unrolled his gift I almost started to cry, and being 30 weeks pregnant did not help. He had painted a flower using his handprints for the petals. In the middle of the flower was a picture of my sweet boy. On the back, this really made me cry, was a questionnaire about me...

My mommy is "5" years old
My mommy is "100" feet tall and weights "90" pounds.
My mommy has "black" hair and "green" eyes.
My mommy's favorite tv show is "football"
My mommy's favorite food is "pizza"
My mommy's favorite color is "pink"
My mommy always tells me "work"
A special place I would love my mommy to take me would be "museum with airplanes"
My mommy loves me because "we play in our dreams"
She's the best!! I love you mommy!!!

The last one really got me. Every night when I'm tucking him into bed, we talk about where we are going to meet in our dreams to play. When I leave his room, I look back at him and together we say, "see you in my dreams.". I love that boy so much!!!

Water Slide!!!

Yesterday was such a warm day, almost 90 and full on sun. What better way to spend it than playing in the water slide and sucking down Popsicles! The boys had a great time. The Baby is still not a fan of the slide being on, but lives it with just a tiny bit of water or splashing in the puddles. A few time, The Boy would turn the water on high to surprise The Baby. He did NOT appreciate it!!

Carriage Hill

Today was a very busy day.  I had a million things to do and one was to make a grocery run.  After loading the boys in the van, I realized how nice it was out.  It has been a bit chilly these past few weeks so it was nice to have some great weather.  I decided to take the boys out for some fun to one of our favorite farms.  After all, they had been cooped up most of the week and had to deal with my chores for the day...not much fun for a 4 yr old and 19month old.  We headed to a nearby farm where they boys could see how things were done back in the day and LOTS of animals, including a lamb and 6 brand new piglets.  During the warmer months we make many trips to this place.  It will be one I miss once we move.  I asked The Boy if we should take one home and his response, "What?!  A piglet?!  In our house!? I don't think so!!"  He makes me laugh!!! One fun thing we saw, a man was out plowing the fields...using horses and an old plow.  The Boy had a hard time understanding why he didn't just use a tractor.  This is one of the things I love about this farm.  They don't do or use anything modern.
Here we go!!!

The Baby checking things out

No horses here

Talking to the chicken

Loose chicken can only mean trouble with The Baby near

And he's off!!!!

The Piglets

The Baby really enjoyed himself.  This was the first time he really got to explore the farm.  He is usually in the stroller.  He talked to all the animals and LOVED the chickens.  He would have talked ones ears off but eventually started chasing them, as did The of their favorite things to do.  He was not too much of a fan when the horse came right up to him though.  Every time he heard the rooster crow, he would throw his head back, point up to the rooster, and laugh.  For some reason, it was really funny to him.  I am so glad we stopped for this outing.  The boys, and  myself, had such a great time getting out of the house and doing something fun on such a nice day.  We have been soooo busy with other things it was great to have some fun!  Too bad the General Store was closed...or maybe not.  We will just have to go back on the next perfect day!
