Flashback Friday (5.2.14)

I have a few seconds here at work to post! It's Friday! My allergies are kicking my butt today. Sick of it! Hope you all have a great weekend! I will have my nose in my Ethics book- lucky me huh?

My boy at the game last night!

Ruthie snuggling with the new pups (yes we had more.....):

Bubble bath fun!:

This was after the tornado warning night. The kids were so scared so there was very little sleep for anyone. This is how I found him after we woke him up and took him to the couch!:

Great snaps, Sadie! T-ball is so fun! Though, it has me running around all over the place with 2 playing. We have a game for each this evening, one on Saturday, then one Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. I'm exhausted just thinking about what's in store for this coming week…. That last one is hilarious!! (And glad you guys are safe! I recorded Once Upon a Time, and it cut into it with the tornado coverage. We watched it last night, and it's super scary watching just how close it was to hitting us. It was headed straight for us at first, then took a slightly northern turn.)

I will see if I can get some flashback shots uploaded while baby is sleeping Smile

Great shots, Sadie, it looks like you've had a fun week! I'm so glad you are all safe... we are fortunate not to live in an area where we have to deal with tornadoes, but I always think it would be so frightening.

I don't have much to share that I haven't already shared on the daily threads. But here's a few.

This tree is on our walk and it amazes me how fast it has gone from this shot with just one of a few leaves (on Tuesday) to virtually covered with leaves (yesterday)!

Another share from Micah's weight-lifting exercises during our garage sale last Sat.:

A collage I put together this week:

I liked the way the light highlighted the colours and detail at the bottom of this tulip. It's blown on purpose... not necessarily everyone's choice but it works for me!

And a re-share of two of my faves from the river:

Brothers

They wanted to eat lunch outside. See all that nasty pollen on the table? I can't keep up with cleaning it all up!

Great shots, Tracy! I especially love the one of Micah with the weights! Carson LOVES playing with those weights. Every time we walk through Target, he has to pick them up and exercise.

LOVE that last one, Steph! I have a couple to add, today's snaps, I guess!

Um Tracy- that first one you shared is spectacular! It looks like a painting! I am amazed by it and want a copy! And Micah is so cute!

Steph- the pollen is what has me down! I am so sick today, but toughing it out. Love the one of your boys by the river!

Sorry, I goofed on sharing my snaps for the day. Replaced the first one with the two-fer of Nora. Smile

I think you were talking about the lilac, Sadie? That was a good combination of shooting super-wide open (f/1.6 on my 50mm) into the light for a hazy feel. It's very soft (i.e. nothing in it is tack sharp) but I love that kind of stuff!

Sorry about the pollen allergies. Nora has them badly and it makes me really feel for all of you allergy sufferers out there!

Sadie ... I'm glad that, with your busy schedule, you got a chance to share a few! I love your t-ball shots! I can see your pride in your boy in every shot. Smile And look! More puppies! AWWWW!

Tracy ... love the collage! such a little sweetie. And Micah's workout photo really made me smile. Smile Love the ones you got of him at the river as well. Nora looks very cool in your snaps for today, but that last shot really steals the show, Tracy! WOW!

Steph ... SO glad you guys are OK! That tornado was way too close for comfort. My home was hit when I was in high school. Scary time. I'm so glad you guys are safe. LOVE that shot of Carson and Jackson together. That's one to pull out when they get married. Biggrin Looks like Hudson is giving you guys more and more smiles. LOVE IT!

Here are mine for the week. I got a TON of shots at the 2 soccer games last week that I just love. I had a hard time culling it down to this batch. And then I got some new ones of Loki last night. He sits pretty well for me and doesn't run when he sees my camera (not yet anyway).

Sadie - look ... he's still snapping his fingers while he plays. Biggrin

We're planning a fun family outing this weekend. I'm hoping for a snap or two there. And then, of course, Logan has soccer tomorrow as well. Biggrin

Take care everyone!

GiGi, the intensity in #6 is AWESOME! Great capture!!

Love the dog shots too, the one in particular that I mentioned on FB is especially an awesome dog portrait, IMO!

GiGi- LOVE that he still does that! I look for it in photos! Too cute! I agree the intensity in #6 is AH-MAZING! The last one of Loki (right?) is too cute. He is HUGE!
