I Heart this Face

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is the favorite face picture you took in the month of May.  And even though I've posted this one before I have to say I absolutely LOVE this face - my beautiful little girl.  The challenge this week is a people's choice challenge so please feel free to go to their website and vote for her.  :-)

You can check out some other fun May face pictures at the I Heart Faces website as well.

A Pretty Challenge

This weeks "You Capture" challenge was pretty.  And since we finally made it to the Arboretum, (Yay!!) I thought it would be fun to post all of the pretty pictures I took for this challenge.  :-)  The kids and I had such a blast today with the photography moms and their kids - the moms are all so sweet and our kids wore themselves out.  We met in the Texas Town area so the kids had a lot of room to run around and play.   Then we had a picnic lunch and enjoyed the beautiful weather.  It was a great day!

Yellow ~ An I Heart Faces Challenge

This week's I Heart Faces Challenge theme is yellow.  I took this picture at a play date we were at with some of the moms from my photography group at the Frisco Heritage Museum - such a great spot.  It has lots of cute little buildings that the kids can explore.  And he was so impressed by this wild flower while we were there that I couldn't help but take a picture.  :-)

Busy, Busy, Busy - "Challenge"

This week's "You Capture" challenge is busy and we definitely have been!!  We've been unpacking fools lately as we're getting settled into the new house.  But since it's not always easy to get things done around the house when the kids are awake, the kids have been busy too.  :-)  They have played outside a lot, run errands with us, had some play dates, and overall just been having a great time.  Here are some of the pictures of what we have been up to.

They have been playing outside a LOT!!
They love playing on their new slide, in the dirt, with their ball - anything outside equals fun now days. 

They have also been playing with their toys and books more.  We moved them into their own rooms and they seem to love it!   We have been playing in them quite a bit.

We even managed to sneak in a play date with my photography group to Chesnut Square in McKinney.  Beautiful location but man the kids are fast now days.  :-)

And probably my favorite thing was watching E make a new friend today.  She had so much fun walking around with her new friend and giving her hugs.  It was so sweet!!

May Flowers ~ An I Heart Faces and You Capture Challenge

I really enjoy doing challenges.  I feel like they make me try to become more creative with my photography.  So I thought I would try out a new challenge this week from I Heart Faces.  The theme this week is May flowers.  I also wanted to add this to the "You Capture" challenge.  :-) We have such beautiful wild flowers around here and I absolutely love the Indian Paint Brushes.  I told my husband I would love to take a picture of some of them.  So while he was mowing today, he found some for me and brought them back for me to photograph.  :-)  He's the best!!  I hope you enjoy!!

Butterflies and Mommies ~ "Challenge"

The You Capture challenge for this week was Motherhood.  I almost didn't post for the week because I wasn't sure I could capture a picture that would represent all that motherhood is - the special bond and love that you have for your kids, the worry you do about them all the time about EVERY thing, and all the fun moments you share.

Some of my twin mom friends and I went to a butterfly festival at the Collin Creek mall yesterday and I found a fun mommy moment to share .  There was a tent set up with hundreds of unsuspecting butterflies for the kids to touch and look at.  :-)  Hehe...and apparently my son wanted to see how they tasted. 

For me it was such a mommy moment because as he was just about to put the butterfly in his mouth, two of  my mom friends and I all instinctively yelled "no" at the same time and reached for him to stop.  The mommy just came out in us.   Luckily we stopped him just in time.  *** Disclaimer - No butterflies were hurt in our visit to the mall.  :-)

We enjoyed our visit with the butterflies.  Here are a couple of other fun pictures I was able to take while we were there.

Outside ~ This week's You Capture Challenge

We've been so busy moving and packing the last week or two that we haven't had enough outside time.  So yesterday we finally got a chance to enjoy the great outdoors and take some pictures for this week's "You Capture" challenge.  The kids LOVED going outside to play.  We met some friends from my photo moms group at The Frisco Heritage Museum and they had a blast running around from building to building.  It was a cute little place - great place to take pictures! 

Then later after lunch and naps the kids and I decided to take a nature walk.  I love living out in the country and seeing such beautiful scenery.  It was definitely a wonderful day!
