As of July 1 I began posting my daily photos over at my main blog, A Fresh Perspective.
I found the need to eliminate one blog, and since this one came second, this is the one.
I hope you will choose to join me over at A Fresh Perspective for daily photos, photo challenges,
and some other fun stuff thrown in.

March 31

Alex and I went up to our church to play at their playground today since it is so beautiful outside!  He was having a good time on the tire swing that just spins you around until you are too dizzy to go on.  :)

March 30

Jordan is always cooperative when I break out the camera.  This day was no exception.  :)
Edited 4/1/10 - I realized I didn't crop until after I posted the original pic (thanks, Laura, for reminding me!).

March 29

I've been trying to get a good picture of a bird.  Unfortunately with 3 kids and a dog, it is hard to get one to stick around long enough to have his/her pic taken.  This one was perched way up in our oak tree.

March 28

I just love it when you can see the moon during the daylight hours.

March 27

I know I posted this pic on my other blog, but it is my fav of the day!
Oh, and Happy Birthday Maw!

March 26

Snow in March in Pennsylvania isn't uncommon and I know it doesn't look like much, but this little bit of snow - changed from rain overnight - had all 4 of my doors frozen shut this morning.  And it really felt cold today - especially since it has been so sunny and warm lately.  I even broke out my driving gloves!  The forecast for tomorrow is 50 degrees and mostly sunny.  That is great considering the past 2 weekends have been rainy.

March 24

Last night's sunset behind my neighbor's tree.

March 23

I actually didn't take any pics on March 23 - this is from March 24.  For some reason I can go days without picking up my camera, but then when I do, I take a gazillion pics in one day.  Weird.

Anyway, this is a picture of a woodpecker hole in a tree in my neighbor's woods.  Alex and I went for a walk yesterday.  We wanted to walk over to the other neighbor's farm and take pics of their new baby cows (they are sooooo cute!), but my legs were aching from yesterday's run.  Another day!

March 22

Alex was playing around with this mesh bag.  He looks like he's ready to hold up a bank!  :)

March 21

Nicholas has come such a long way this year when it comes to reading!  He reads about 10 minutes a day - usually to me.  But sometimes to his dad or sister.  He's even been "caught" reading to Alex!  You go, dude! 

March 20

Just playing around.
Alex got this light-up sword at Chuck E. Cheese the other night.  I put in on top of a black filing cabinet, turned out all the lights, and used my tripod to take these.  I played around with the aperture priority setting on my camera (thanks, Laura, for the tip!).

March 19

Nick's first sleepover!  His friend, Will, stayed over last night.  They spread their sleeping bags and a pile of stuffed animals all over the living room floor.  Nick wanted to stay up until midnight, but when I came down to check on them at 10:30, they were both zonked out.

March 18

The kids found a package of balloons we had from a while ago.  They only lasted a few minutes because they kept popping them.

March 17

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 
I noticed this crescent moon tonight while picking up the kids at church.  So I had to run home, set up my camera and tripod and try to capture a shot of it.  This picture really doesn't do it justice because, although only a crescent is lit, you can see the whole thing and it is gorgeous!  Maybe I'll try again tomorrow evening ... a little earlier.

March 16

Poor Jordan fell and scuffed her face yesterday.  She said it still hurts a little but was more than happy to let me take her picture.  How pretty are those eyes!

March 15

Alex helping me Swish and Swipe the bathroom yesterday.  He loves the new toilet brush.  Go figure!
{No pics taken on the 14th so stop looking!  :) }

March 13

The boys were playing around today and closed themselves in Honey's cage.  When I got the camera to take a few pics, they decided to make it look like it wasn't their idea to get in the cage.  I will admit I've thought about locking them in there a few times, but they know how to open the door from the inside so it wouldn't do any good anyway.  :)
Honey wasn't real happy about them being in her space.

March 12

Keira's Wood-U-Race car from last Friday's race.  She named it the AquaSwirl.

March 11

Signs of spring!  Our maple tree is budding! 
(Yes, I know my lens needed cleaned - already done!)

March 10

I realized I hadn't taken any pictures today until I was posting the past few days' pics, so Alex was happy to oblige with his goofy face tonight.

March 9

Sunrise from Keira's hospital room - taken through their cruddy window :).  As much as I hated to get up early, I'm glad I didn't miss this.

March 8

Keira having her "clear liquids" after her surgery - chicken broth (which she said tasted yucky), hot decaf tea, Sprite, and Italian ice.  She's ignoring me taking her picture because she's watching a movie.  :)

March 7

Keira took this one.  The boys kept kissing me ... over and over. 
Loud, wet smooches.  Love it!

March 6

This frog pillow was wrapped around a blanket that came with it so it has velcro to keep it closed.  Nick decided it would be fun to wear the frog on his head.

March 5

We have a rope tied to our snow tube so we (and when I say "we" I mean Doug) can pull the kids around.  He spins them around and around and they love it!  Well, Honey loves ropes, so she thinks the rope is for her.  She's pulling Alex around the back yard by the rope.  Alex doesn't mind at all.  Too cute!

March 4

Another one of Alex.  I know it is a little blurry.  He doesn't like to stay still too long.  He's showing me his "big M&M".  I love how it is green like the strip on his shirt.  :)

March 3

I know, I know ... I've been taking a lot of pictures of Alex lately.  The ones I took today are fun because he didn't even know I was taking them. 

He and Daddy were having a great time out on the swings this afternoon.  I just love the look of shear joy on his face as Daddy pushed him on the swing.  He looks like a boy having a great time!  I wish you could hear him laughing!

March 2

Alex was sitting in time out today (a spot he seems to be visiting a lot lately) and he kept saying, "take my picture!  take my picture!"  So since he's usually yelling at me to NOT take his picture, I got the camera.  I think he's trying to look innocent here?

March 1

"It's not nap time," he whispers quietly when I pick him up to take him to his bed.  :)
