First Fishin' of the Year

Fishing has always been a big part of our family. Me...not a big fisher "person". Not a big fisher "cleaner" and not a big fisher "eater". However its always nice to get away and see the earth. I now realize the true purpose of fishing. To take beautiful pictures. I am in awe of my children. The Girl wasn't interested in fishing this time(she was busy answering the call of nature and begging us to come see where the conversation took place), so I focused on The Boy. I think he is amazing and I want to freeze time right now. My prayer would be that I don't forget how precious he is right now. The way his little arms feel around my neck. The heat the spreads from my heart to my toes when he says "Mama, I love you much". Please let me remember.

Yee Yars

The other day the kids got to spend some time with Mimi and Papa's Yee-Yars. That's "horses" if you don't speak Luke. They are beautiful animals. I have always wished Id grown up on a farm, caring for animals. It seems that the folks I know who take care of others are not so wrapped up in meeting their own demands.
Sydnie was in heaven. I can see this becoming a passion of hers. I would love to get involved with her, if for no other reason than to see her so happy.

Luke on the other hand was not so certain that he was cowboy material. He was pretty sure the Yee-Yar was going to fall over. That and he was crammed into a child saddle with my....dainty bum. Yeah.
What would our world be like without Mimi's, Papa's, Yee-Yars and cute kids. I don't want to know.

p.s. The boy can say "horse" and knows that's what they are called. However when he pretends to ride them, he shouts "Yee-Yar lil dawggies". So, I'm content with them being yee-yars...for now.

You Capture: A Moment

I love this picture! I think its precious the way The Boy is holding on to the pole. I don't even think Daddy was aware that he had done that. Boys sure do look up to their Dads. That's a heavy load to should, Men, so do so with care. To see more special moments from other bloggers/photographers, be sure to check out I should be folding laundry.

Day with the Ducks!

What a great day we spent at the park!

Ive been wanting to drag the family here for a shoot.

We spent 3 hours....
and five loaves of bread at the park.

The park critters are fat on carbs.

the kids were begging me to stop taking pictures after a bit.

No such luck....
Shut up and smile...

and like it, too!

Just cause we are so crazy like that...
we got a bit out of control...and Beau decided to play coy!

We had fun Through the Garden Gates today!
