Green Thumb

If one garden was good last year, we need two this year! More gardens need more helpers. The Walker boys were so excited to help plant the seeds. I think they were actually more excited to play in the dirt and use the hose but all of the pumpkin plants are in the ground. Hopefully we will have enough for each of them to have one in October. I am most excited about the zucchini since we are going to get Grandma Garrott's sweet zucchini relish recipe. Now we just have to hope for the right amount of sunshine and rain.

Could this kid get any cuter?? (about three seconds later he was pointing the hose straight up in the air)

Little Miss Anna

We haven't seen baby Anna since Christmas time and she has gotten so big! I guess we should stop calling her baby since she will be 2 in September and isn't the youngest member of the family anymore. I think she was more interested in seeing herself on the camera screen than having her picture taken but I was just glad I could capture her attention for a little while.

This one is a little blurry but I love her little tongue sticking out!

These were the flowers that were on the table. I thought they were really pretty. I had to erase the that was on the bag to the left of them.

Lots - o - pictures

Weekly Update

Since it seems that I only update this darn thing once a week it might as well be done on Monday. Busy + Busy = no time to update blogs.

These are my final attempts at sports photography. I'm kinda sad the season is over. We were really getting used to going to games in the evening and I was actually getting good at setting my camera for action shots. I suppose I will have to find other things to take pictures of now. If the weather ever gets nice maybe I can work on my nature photography. Senior pics this summer too! I'm so excited, but kinda scared too. I don't really take pictures for anyone but myself so if they don't turn out I'm the only one disappointed... I don't want to be the one to ask for a "retake".

I hope I have some house pictures to post soon (keeping my fingers crossed).

The computer is being slow so I will upload pictures later... WARNING: TONS OF PICTURES TO COME!!!

Sorry for the wait

I finally had time to upload a proof my pictures from Monday night. These are the sweet ones. Sitting behind the back stop helped a ton with the angle of my photos but then I just had to deal with the fence. It freaked out my lens and it's way too hard to manual focus and shoot sports.

This one is my favorite. Al's a beast.

This is what you do when you get tired of trying to get good action shots... or during the inning changes.

Softball & Prom

Woah.... I have about a million pictures to post. Busy weekends = lots of photos

Saturday morning softball games... we have to go back when it isn't raining. Al's a beast and throws the ball so dang fast that I can't get a shot where her hand isn't blurry. Maybe some sunshine would help that out.

I missed her only hit because I was complaining about something... I should pay better attention especially when the purpose of my being there is to take pictures!

Saturday afternoon: Fun time with Caiden and getting our hair "did". Loved the fun hair and nails. I felt like such a girly girl.

Saturday night... PROM (number 4 for me, number 6 for Richie)
