We had a beautiful weekend here! Julian went for his first ride in our backyard swing and enjoyed the heck out of it, and Ava enjoyed pushing him and time in the swing herself, so “fun in the backyard” is my theme for this week.

I couldn’t pick just one picture to share (I never can), so I’m sharing a few of each of the kids, all taken on Saturday, May 19.

I know I included this picture in the post below about my Mother’s Day, but it’s my favorite from the week.

My flower child, Ava. 🙂

By the way, I totally spaced BSM last week, but I hope to get back in the groove again.

It’s time for another round of Best Shot Monday. I know it’s late in the day to be posting, but better late than never, right? And since I’m just now getting the opportunity to do this, I’m not sharing just one shot, but several from this weekend. I mean, might as well kill two birds with one stone and all that, and I usually have a hard time picking just one photo to share anyway.

We had gorgeous weather here this weekend – sunny and in the 80s – and we spent quite a bit of time outside enjoying it.

On Saturday, we had a picnic at one of our favorite parks. Here are a few of Ava from the day, and then a collage of Julian who enjoyed a nice nap in the great outdoors.

And earlier in the day on Saturday, Ava had a blast helping me water some new grass seed and then watering herself. LOL

This week’s Best Shot Monday (BSM) comes from the farm we visited (along with Grandma, Aunt Carrie & Jason) over the weekend.

Ava had a great time seeing all of the animals and she took her very first pony ride. Ya think she enjoyed it? 🙂

Spring is in the air and I couldn’t help taking several pictures of flowers this weekend. I love to see all of the colors reemerging after an unusually snowy winter here.

I actually didn’t pick up my SLR at all this past week. *gasp* I know, I know. I need to crack the old girl out again. I did, however, take a few snapshots with my beat-up, old P&S (point & shoot, or as I really like to call it, piece of sh*t). Using that thing sure does make a girl appreciate her SLR, that’s for sure!

Anyway, this week’s shots are just for fun – nothing “technically” great about them. 😉

Look, mom! I found the headbands!
One for me and…

One for Julian! Doesn’t he look pretty? LOL

What’s for lunch, Julian? Daddy’s nose! *suck, suck, suck*

I didn’t take many pictures this week until Saturday when we dyed eggs and Sunday, which, of course was Easter. However I still came up with a few that I’d like to share. 🙂

Here are a few of my favorites from Easter day:

We did our Easter egg hunt quickly outside in the snow (yes, snow!) this year.
Here’s a storyboard of Ava searching for eggs:

(Unfortunately, there are a ton of technical things wrong with this last photo, but I still love it because Julian was having such a blast as daddy tossed him in the air.)
