It was a gorgeous weekend, and it’s finally starting to look like Spring in our yard. We spent lots of time enjoying the weather, planting in our garden and, of course, taking photos. I’m really starting to love my new camera! Here are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend:
My new camera arrived on Friday, and then the rain began and continued almost the entire weekend. Not the best weather for playing with my new toy, but I still managed to snap quite a few shots during our weekend cooped up indoors.
A few scenes from our weekend:
In typical Texas winter style, we went from 70 degrees evening-on-the-patio weather on Friday afternoon to freezing rain by Sunday. Perfect weather for fort building, balloon bouncing and just generally being lazy.
It was an action-packed weekend, with highlights including a Blue Man Group performance, an afternoon at the ceramics studio and a visit from grandma and grandpa. Here are my favorite pics from the weekend:
It was a gorgeous weekend and we spent lots of time outdoors, taking a nature hike, feeding the neighborhood geese and celebrating Tara’s birthday. Anyone else ready for Spring?
After a week of vacation followed by a week of sickness, we’re almost back to normal around here. We spent the weekend removing the last traces of Christmas from our home, and it’s wonderful to have the house back to a (somewhat) clean slate. Removing decorations, however, makes the house seem a bit empty, so I added a few new plants yesterday – something I do at the start of nearly every year (thanks to my blog, I can now identify trends in my behavior). Another January trend I’ve noticed is a focus on food and healthy eating. I’ve never been big on New Year’s resolutions, but last year I set a bit of a resolution to cook more and eat better. I don’t think I can claim success on my 2013 efforts, so I’m giving myself a do-over this year.
Happy New Year!
We had an ice storm last night in the DFW area. The kids were thrilled to wake up to a blanket of white over their entire yard, and they ventured out almost immediately to play in the snow. Unfortunately, the temperatures were still very low and they came inside almost just as immediately. For now, we’re bundled up by the fire, enjoying these views from the warmth of our home.
We had a wonderful weekend visiting with family in the town of Fairhope, Alabama. Here are a few of my favorite photos:
