What a beautiful day...

Light pink blooms on young almond trees, green-green grass, a beautiful blue sky, fluffy white clouds, perfect lighting, a camera (with remote), a tripod, two very handsome boys, lots of smiles and one very giddy Mommy...I had been driving past this spot for two weeks on the way to work, thinking each day what a beautiful spot it was and how perfect it would be as a picture place. So, last weekend we got dressed, loaded up in the car and off we went.

We (I) had such a blast. The boys were a little grumpy at first but after seeing how the pictures were looking, they really got into it. These are a few of my favorite pictures from that day.

I can't believe how grown up Red looks. I know he's growing. I see it in his "high water" pants. I hear it in his conversation. I feel it when I try to pick him up and hold him like I did not so long ago. But it is when I see him in a picture that I realize just how much. Life is sweet.

Oh that IS a beautiful spot & those are GORGEOUS pics of all of you! So glad those grumpys turned their frown upside down. Funny how that happens, now even DrillSgt. puts up with my "oh can I just take a pic?" and tells Da'Gorgeouses, "come here and hold on, mamá wants to take a pic!"

Must catch up with you and your busy life---thinking positive thoughts ALWAYS!

Hugs & Blessings!
