Favorite Photo Friday - Instagram Edition

August 3, 2012

I'm sure this will come as no surprise, but I have become completely addicted to instagram over the last few months.
It is so much fun and I think the thing I love about it most is that it allows me to catch those spontaneous moments that I would normally miss because I don't always have the big camera within reach. My phone is always by my side and it is easy to grab and quickly snap as something memorable is going on.

Duck Umbrellas BLOG
(All photos taken with my iPhone)
On Sunday, as I was working in my office, Pat was out front pulling weeds. The girls had been inside playing "ballerina" and they decided to go out and help Daddy in the yard. After about 30 minutes, I looked up and saw it was starting to rain. The girls had gone into the garage to grab their favorite umbrellas and rain boots and were dancing around in the driveway. I came flying out the door and Pat said, "I knew it wouldn't be long before you were out here with a camera in hand". Reagan was wearing Sarah's leotard hence the saggy rear and she put her boots on the wrong feet, but couldn't have cared less. This picture makes me smile!

Partners In Crime
These were taken on a recent grocery store run and I love the one on the right in the freezer aisle.
They were cold so they hugged to keep warm.....my heart gets warm just looking at it.

Reags Running Down the Hall
Sarah and Reagan really are inseparable and have a bond that seems to be incredibly strong.
They are joined at the hip.... two peas in a pod. From the moment Reagan wakes up (she is our early riser), she is looking for Sarah and anxiously waiting to hear the pitter patter of her sissy coming down the steps. If the wait gets too long, she runs up there and wakes her up so they can begin their day of adventures together.

There is no way you can watch these two in action together and not have a smile permanently pasted on your face.
They are super sweet and they are blessed to have each other.

Love love love the new blog makeover!!! So happy and fun! And I love your instagram pictures. I've been using my "purse camera" (little canon point and shoot) since I still have a "dinosaur" of a cell phone! :) I'm lovin it too like you... able to capture the everyday fun of life. I love your happy sister pictures Lisa. The duckie umbrella pic made me smile. Hope all is well with you and your beautiful family this summer. Hugs, tara

Love the photo of the girls and the fact that Instagram makes it so easy to capture and share these moments. I know how overwhelming it can be to pull out the
"big camera" and want to really make the shot look great...but the beauty of the everyday moment captured equally in a moment is priceless as well!

The girls are getting so big but seeing them together just melts my heart!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look of your blogover....every time you redo it it just gets more and more beautiful!

Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

xoxo
