Love this picture

I adore taking pictures of flowers. They are naturally beautiful, very cooperative and you don't have to convince them to smile for the camera :) I went to take some pictures last week of some Asiatic Lilies and they were gorgeous. Of course I my favorite of them all was the wonky angle one that I got on my last try! I am going to enlarge this as a wall print and I can't make up my mind which processing I like the best...

Daddy's right hand man

So we had a water leak in our backyard. We had to bring the backhoe in and Mat had a little helper the whole time!

Summer Fun

We're having an amazing summer. I have dedicated my summer to my little man and making sure we get plenty of quality time together (he is growing up too quickly) and we have been pool rats this summer. He is doing great at learning to swim. The 99 cent swimmies have been such a blessing. Those big bulky suits with the floats in them are nice, but the swimmies give him so much more freedom to actually swim and he has no fear so he's well on his way. Just thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures!

4th of July

I hope everyone had a great 4th...our family sure did! We had a great day swimming, eating and then we had a beautiful fireworks display although I am sad to report my pictures sucked. I was not as clever as my dear friend V to research the fireworks procedure for taking good pictures so I wound up with 100+ stinky fireworks pictures. Oh well there's always next year! But back to the good parts of our day, the food was at the top of the list. Potlucks are my favorite I love eating other peoples food as a matter of fact I hardly ever eat what I take to a potluck just because I want to sample all the other new foods. I'll share what I made with you because all the recipes got rave reviews and they are definitely festive and super delicious. I will be making these again in coming years!
