As a part of one of my assignments, we took the kids for a walk one night to the farm down the street.  I was supposed to find open shade to shoot in.  I didn't. However, I did find some nice warm light, and got some pretty adorable photos of my guys enjoying big messy lollipops :)

So dreamy...

I love naptime.  I really do.  But I also love when my bub wakes up from his nap and he's not cranky, he's sweet and loveable and so talkative!  Here he is sitting in his room, after waking up one warm afternoon, sitting by an open window and reading a favorite book.  Ah, to be young again ;)  At least I get to document it all for him :)

I mentioned I'm taking a photography workshop.  Well, one week's assignment was backlighting.  I was having so much trouble getting a backlit window shot, that I actually took desperate (DESPERATE) measures.  E doesn't nap very often.  And when he does, at the same time as N, that is MY time.  I enjoy every second of it.  But this day, I risked moving him from the couch, to the ottoman, and slid him over in front of the window, kicking his trains out of the way as I went.  Here's the fruit of my labor.

I love this time of year, everything in bloom, birds chirping, eating outside where I don't have to clean up the mess (okay, clearly some stain removal was needed, but I enjoy that more than vacuuming and wiping down my kitchen after every.single.meal!!).  We had a picnic dinner in the yard a few weeks ago.  Here's Mr. N enjoying his watermelon dessert.  I love how carefree and daydreamy this is!

For the past few weeks, I've been taking a photography workshop, I'm learning so much!  I've been out shooting in different locations and it's been so fun.  I'm lucky I have a Hubby who not only goes along with it, but encourages it and does his best to get the boys cooperating, too.  I've taken more photos in the past month than any other, but I haven't had a lot of time to share them!

On N's 2nd birthday, we went Downtown.  We went on a trolley ride and out to lunch.  Here are a few of my favorites from that day!

This BOY

Is SO boy! And he's gonna be two in a few short days. Where does the time go?!  I had fun with this!

Beautiful day in the neighborhood

We are so enjoying being outside! Here are a few favorites from this week.

N showing our neighbor's dog some love:

E facing off with our neighbor (his idol):

And N, leading the pack down the street:

Fun in a box

I ran upstairs the other day to grab some clothes for E.  At the time, he was sitting naked in a cardboard box.  Asking for an apple.  Don't ask.  So I'm coming down the stairs with the clothes in my hand, and I hear the boys laughing.  It's like, seriously, the most joyous laugh.  So I started feeling all warm and fuzzy.  Until I heard sprinkling.  I suddenly realize why they are having such fun.

N couldn't find an apple, but he found Christmas sprinkles:

And according to E, they were "YUMMY!"

Have I mentioned that I love these boys?

Spring!  I just think it's the happiest time of year.  When I see bulbs and buds popping up, I just get so excited.  Here are a few of mine right now.
