It has been a long time since I have dumped the old iPhone, so I thought I would catch up today and share some of my daily Instagram favs.

Just popping in (a little late this morning) to wish everyone one a Blessed and Happy Easter!
We are enjoying the Spring weather and the extra family time.
The bluebells are in FULL BLOOM now, so I snuck in a quick shoot with Sarah last night.
We have a neighborhood Easter egg hunt tomorrow and family celebration Sunday.
The girls are just a wee bit excited and the sugar shock is already kicking.
They wish every day could be a holiday :)

First Sprouts of Spring

We are just a little excited over here. . .
Yesterday brought temps in the low 70's and beautiful sunshine. The better part of our day was spent outdoors playing and we also took a quick trip to the park to see if there were any signs of Spring beginning to sprout in our favorite field. There were not many, but a few bluebells are beginning to pop up from the ground. I am thinking in the next day or two they will be in full bloom.

It has been a LONG TIME since I have had the opportunity to shoot outdoors in the warm sunlight, so I was in photography heaven. We had planned to paint our Easter Eggs but we wanted to be outdoors. The table is set and all of the dye, glitter, and paint is ready to go. The girls will be doing their egg decorating this morning followed by Sarah's first Spring Soccer game this afternoon.
It will be another beautiful day in PA. Hope you get to enjoy a little sunshine too!
~Happy Palm Sunday~

Sarah and Julie

These were taken almost a month ago on one of the many cold days where we were stuck indoors.
It was a self proclaimed PJ day and as I walked down the hall, I saw Sarah playing with Julie, her fav doll!
Since they were dressed alike in their matching pjs, I decided to pull out the camera!!
It was so sweet to watch her interact with the doll and then things began to get a little rowdy:)
When Mom has the camera the rules seem to go out the window and jumping on the bed is allowed. . . so someone took full advantage!

I have one more post to go and I am officially caught up and it is a good thing because the weather has been beautiful this week and I am just itching to get outdoors with my camera.
The bluebells should be sprouting any day now and all of the locals are waiting to go wild in the park with our kids and cameras!!
I think it is safe to say that Spring has finally arrived in these parts and not a moment too soon. It really does a lot for the mood when it is warm and the sun is shining down.
Hopefully we can enjoy most or our weekend outdoors.

Shadow Dancing

Shadow Dancing Collage
Same dress she was wearing in the previous post, but completely different look and feel.
This is why she loves it so much.... it has the twirl factor!
She could spin herself dizzy in this sweet dress:)
Trying to catch up and get the backlog of pictures posted.
Be back on Friday with some pics of Sarah... Have a wonderful week!

Hi there, Remember Me?

Purple Tulips Reags Collage 2
Sorry to have disappeared for a while.
Life has been very "full" and I was beginning to feel like I was spinning in too many different directions.
I was in dire need of a break, so I stepped away from almost all social media outlets for a few weeks.
It did me good and now I am ready to come back and share the backlog of photos that are piling up on my computer.

Due to the crazy winter weather, our kids have not had any scheduled time off from school.
No extended weekends or spring breaks. They have had to make up too many snow days.   They do have off on Holy Thursday and Good Friday, so we are very much looking forward to an extended weekend to celebrate Easter.
We have been spreading some "Easter" touches throughout the house and I told the girls we would do some egg decorating very soon!

Purple Tulips Reags Collage 3

Last weekend I was placing new tulips in a vase and photographing them for the daily clickinmoms instagram prompt, when this little one decided to sneak a few of my flowers out of the jar!! The photo shoot sort of changed directions from there and I loved the outcome :)

This dress was given to her by a dear friend a few weeks ago.
It was a hand-me-down that her daughter wore at one time.
Reagan is in LOVE with this dress and if it were up to her, she would wear it EVERY DAY and sleep in it too!!
It is so pretty and it can really "twirl"...... More photos of her spinning the dress coming soon:)

Hope you have all been well!
I have missed all of my blogger friends and look forward to catching up.
~Happy Weekend~
