I took a lot of pictures in July, some fabulous captures of amazing memories and some pictures of coffee pots and dunkin donuts cups. Going on a mega vacation certainly helped my supply of amazing memory photos and made it hard for me to narrow down the contenders for Top 10 Photos, but here they are, the pictoral champions of the past month:
My 6 year old used a sparkler for the first time last month while we waited for the town fireworks to begin from the comfort of our neighbor’s yard. It was a perfect night – good company, less noisy & less crowded than going to the official fireworks location, and then a short walk home to put the kids to bed (wayyyyyyyy past their bedtime!)
A friend dropped off a bag of her daughter’s old dress up gowns – lots of frilly, pink & yellow gowns, a few tiaras, etc. Suffice it to say, my daughter is in her glory now.
My little girl passed out in her grandpa’s arms (my dad) after a busy day.
Enjoying some fun in the sun in the backyard at my uncle’s house in MA where we stayed on our vacation.
Blueberry picking may be my favorite berry picking activity. We sat in plastic chairs on an overcast morning picking berries at just the right height with ease with my husband, kids, grandmother and teenaged cousin. A relaxing morning activity with delicious rewards.
For her third birthday my daughter got to wear a beautiful princess dress to her aunt’s outdoor wedding – probably the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever been to and certainly one of the most touching ceremonies. I took a lot of pictures today but this shot of BB collecting flower petals in the background during the ceremony is my favorite. Happy third birthday baby girl. I hope you always feel like a princess, beautiful dress or no.
A bundle of energy with grass stained knees and a smirk glued to his face. He spent the afternoon running from my camera, chasing after cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents at my sister in law’s wedding.
He slays me sometimes. Rolling his eyes at yet another of mom’s photo ops. :O)
These pretty purple blooms just showed up in our backyard along the house. Not sure what type of flower they will be, but I enjoyed photographing them and love finding little gems like this right in my own backyard.
It’s not often she does something to merit an actual time out. I wonder if I was sending the wrong message by taking a picture of her adorable pout. :O)
