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.

May 31

Alex's favorite part of today's Memorial Day parade ... the tanks! 
Well, that and the tubas, the drums, and the cymbals.  :)
See the guy peeking out the front?  Cool!

May 30

This bumble bee was a little too quick for me.  I couldn't get him on the side of the flower I was on, no matter how fast I moved.  :)

Another of the beautiful flowers growing on our bank. 
I have no idea what this is, but it is so pretty!

Baby Christie - such a sweet baby!

My sweet girl.
It is hard to see but I put the color back in her eyes - they are so blue!

May 26

Alex and I picked up a bubble machine at Walmart on Monday.  We took it to a play date at my friend Laura's house yesterday.  The bubbles were gorgeous in the sun!!!  I think Laura and I had more fun with it (taking pictures) than the kids did.  :)

May 25

Not the best picture I took today but I like the story behind it.

Nicholas and I went back into our neighbor's woods and got the beetles some dirt and bark, since I guess they like those things.  As soon as Nick put the beetles back in the box, the male (at least we think it is a male) tunneled himself straight down into the dirt.  He hasn't come back up yet.  The female (again, we think) has been hanging out on top of the bark, chewing away.  Aaaahhh, happy at last. :)

Keira's creation ... a veggie face.
We had salad for dinner tonight w/LOTS of veggies.  YUM!

May 23

Nick's cheesy (leftover) pizza.
Taken w/ my little Casio pocket camera.
(Notice the little car in the couch?)  :)

I'm cheating on this one, since I obviously didn't take it ~ Keira did.
Me crossing the finish line in my first 5K running race.

May 21

Meet the two newest members of our family.  A male and female Bess Beetle.  Nicholas brought them home from school today.  Yikes!  Why did I agree to that?!

May 20

Jordan's last day with us.  Preschool is over so I won't be babysitting her anymore.

May 19

Nicholas at Field Day - doing the egg race.  I bet they went through A LOT of eggs that day!

May 18

My Love bought me roses again!  For no reason other than he loves me!

May 17

Love the cowboy boots with the shorts!

I hope this Robin isn't holding the caterpillar that Keira was coddling earlier.  :)

May 15

Keira found this photo op on our nature walk this morning.  The wind was blowing so it was hard to get the flowers to stay still.  :)

May 14

My dessert from our PALMS Spring Social dinner.  YUM!

May 13

A few of the wildflowers growing on our bank.

May 12

When Alex asks me to take his picture, I usually oblige, since he's usually hiding or running from the camera these days.  Hard to believe he was sick with a fever yesterday.

May 11

Alex showing me his muscles.

Baby Christie loved the balloons at her big sister Jordan's birthday party today.  She also loved my camera, which is why she's reaching for it.  (Notice her reflection in the balloon?  Cool, huh?  I meant to do that.)  :).

May 7

Nicholas at Grandparent's Day.

May 6

Alex tried and tried to blow bubbles and he finally got it!  He was so happy!

Nicholas was helping Doug plant marigolds around the edge of the garden today. 
I love how he was taking such care and being so gentle.

Today Keira made this "sunken pirate ship" for a school project she's doing tomorrow.

May 3

Keira asked me to take her picture while she was hanging upside down on the swing. 
Look how long her hair is getting!

May 2

I'm cheating on this one in two ways ...
1.  Doug took this picture, not me.  2.  He took it today (May 3).
I didn't take any pictures yesterday because it was rainy and crappy most of the day.  I don't feel too inspired on rainy days.
Anyway, this picture was Doug's view of Keira and Nick this afternoon on the community trail they went riding on.  They rode about 7.5 miles total.  Doug said Nick has a hard time keeping his bike on the trail.  Funny!

May 1

Since the weather was warm enough, the kids were going to have a water balloon battle, but we could only manage to get one balloon filled (the nozzle would not fit on our hose).  So they opted for the sprinkler instead.  They figured out that they could squirt each other with the little nozzles, so that is how they spent most of their time.  Too funny!

April 30

Nick's favorite part of the Children's Museum ... the super fast slide in "The Attic".  Fun!
