Random - 118/365

I found myself taking a lot of pictures today, and I really liked a lot of them, so this is sort of a random entry, with pictures of lots of different things.  Scroll down for some of my favorite magnolia pictures of the season!!

First, Nana and Samuel kissing.

Samuel's post-nap bedhead:

Lilac-to-be - 117/365

I love this time of the year when every day you can see the plants growing, bit by bit.

Cousins - 116/365

Today we went to visit my sister and her girls.  The boys love visiting their cousins, and they always have a great time.

Olivia pushing Thomas on the swing.

Zoe swinging on the "big girl" swing.

Thomas steering the ship.


Why yes, Samuel is very thin, and yes his pants ARE too big for him.  Why do you ask?

After a tumble off the end of the slide, running all around, and generally wearing himself out, Samuel pauses for a drink.

Iris Again - 115/365

Iris is not the easiest dog to photograph, but I thought this came out pretty well.

Also, a small traffic jam.

Sliding! - 114/365

A couple of videos today because Thomas has really gotten comfortable with going down the slide now.  He looooves going down the very steep slide at his cousins' house, but after a few early trips down his own slide, he decided he was a bit scared of it, so I was very happy when he suddenly decided that he was all excited about it again.


And one picture of our magnolia tree in full bloom with the daffodils blooming beside it.

Easter Play - 113/365

The boys had a very nice Easter which started with matchbox cars and moved on to lots of outdoor play.

Mowing is tiring and requires frequent breaks.

This swing is AWESOME!

Easter Outfits - 112/365

Yeah, getting pictures of them in their Easter finery the day before Easter didn't work out very well.

Iris - 109/365

Iris, our very elderly dog, was groomed and then spent the rest of the day snoozing in her bed.  This made her an idea subject for practicing bounced flash.

Sleeping - 108/365

I'd been meaning to take some sleeping pictures for a while but was always afraid that the flash would wake them.  I shouldn't have worried!

 And because Chris could not resist... "When Poohs Attack":

After Party - 106/365

Thomas didn't wear his party hat until the day after the party - and then he didn't want to give it up.

Party! - 105/365

The boys' little birthday party was a big success!  We just had a small party (like last year) with just my parents, and my sister and her family and my best friend and her little family.  The boys had a wonderful time.

Colors - 102-365

The banner I am making to hang from the boys' playset for their birthday party this weekend is still in the construction stages, but I love the colors.

More Playset - 101/365

Well I can see where most of my photoshoots are going to be for a while.  The boys were begging to go out before they even had breakfast.
