Flashback Friday June 7th

Hey guys,

Our trip to a bird sanctuary. The kids had ducks, chickadees, and sandhill cranes eating right out of their hands!

Always love those nature shots of yours, Amy!

Your kids always look like they're having such fun, Tracy! And that bird place looks awesome!

I survived a week alone with the kids! Hubby has been out of town for work, but coming back today. I didn't think I could do it, but getting the kids out of the house every day worked well to help me keep my sanity Wink

We went bowling:

And stayed all day at my best friend's house playing in the water outside:

Someone doesn't want me to take his picture anymore

We tried to have a movie night at our house, but they were more interested in playing Wink This was when they sat down for popcorn, and that only lasted about 5 minutes lol!

Then a swimming playdate with Mommy and Me

I found a tree frog the other night (which got loose in the house...). The boys loved it!

Awww! So cute! Our schools don't do kindergarten grads, but it's fun to see the photos from others. They are so sweet!

Steph, those bowling shots are so great, and I just love the frog shots!

You ladies are making me jealous with your warm weather shots. It is f-r-e-e-z-i-n-g here.

Love the duck feeding shot Tracey. Amy, your nature shots are awesome as always. El, congrats on your boy's kinder graduation. Steph, love the tree frog.

A few camera shots and some phone snaps from me.

A rare smile for the camera from my boy

Those are so great, Shadow! Kaia is so stinking cute! And I love the picture of the morning walk to school with the sun and that wonderful spider web!

Great shots everyone! Amy, I am going to start calling you mother nature cause MY GOSH are u amazing with the outdoor nature shots!
Here is one of my BFF We met in pre k when we were 3 years old and 30 years later we are still best friends. I hope the new neighbors get to know me soon cause I was standing on a kitchen chair outside with her laying inbetween and to a normal person it might of looked kinda bad but to a photographer they would get it lol

bff (1 of 1)

And 2 from 8th grade graduation! Shes going to highschool:(
I was so happy when her girlfriend and her wanted to wear converse sneakers rather than the high heels every other girl was wearing. To me shes still too little for that insert crying face

Thanks Tia, I would happily accept being called mother nature! LOL

Aww I love the fact that they wore Converse too, for the same reason, and because it's cute!

Love the sneakers for the grade 8 grad, wonder if my 14 year old will go for that? She loves the converse, and you can get glittery ones.

Tracy ... you have so many great, fun snaps that it's hard to pick one or two for comment! That bird sanctuary looks SO FUN! I wish we had something like that around here.

Amy ... again, there are so many great shots that I don't know what to say! The clouds are so fun! But that sunset just grabs me right off the bat!

Steph ... looks like the kids are off to one great summer already! LOVE the little froggy! We had one end up in Logan's tub a few years back. Never did figure out how he made his way there (no windows, far from doors, etc).

El ... Brandon looks so grown up! Make him stop! So very cute - love his tie!

Gem ... your kiddos are growing too fast as well. Especially your boy - goodness, he looks like he's all legs these days. Biggrin Kaia is so very cute in her dance outfit! I'm jealous of your cool weather. It's hot for a very large portion of the year here and I treasure my few months of cool weather. I'm going to keep looking at your photos and dream of cool breezes.

Tia ... LOVE the 8th grade grad photos! The sneakers are the PERFECT fit! I'd bet anything she's much more ready for high school than you.

TFS Guys! I just love this thread to pieces!

Best,
GiGi

Tia, I love the converse from the school photos. Such great shots - their personalities definitely shine through.

Thanks Gigi, Hayden is definitely all gangly limbs at the moment. He shot up over 1cm in 2 weeks! And his newfound "school attitude" is making him seem much bigger too. Definitely got the cold winds, was 0 overnight with wind chill factor apparently making it feel like -4. Nice and cold

Gem ... He just LOOKS like he's on a growth spurt. Tugs at your heartstrings, no? I am so jealous of the cool/cold weather! It was 98F at 6pm when Carlos and I started our workout (in our garage and outside). And with the high humidity, it felt a lot hotter. It totally wiped me out. I've started a countdown to October (when we usually get our first cool - not COLD - front). Smile
