A Photo A Day: Week 18

Day 120
April 30: Have you had your break today? It was yet another windy, rainy, yucky day. So I decided to take the boys somewhere to play. They had a great time and I got to read my book for a while. Don't say you haven't done this before!

Day 121
May 1: I took SO many pictures today. Pictures of Eli playing with Cheerios, closeups of the boys faces and pictures of the boys getting haircuts. Then when the boys were taking a bath in the evening I got this shot of them giggling their guts out in the tub. It makes me smile every time I see it, so I guess that means it's a good shot for the day.

Day 122
May 2: Another stir-crazy indoor day. I let the boys do all kinds of silly things... like jumping off their beds and running around like wild indians. Later in the afternoon I felt like supermom when I got the great idea to build a fort, which was a smashing success. I am SO glad we are due for some nice weather soon!

Day 123
May 3: Finally some sunshine. Of course I was too busy to take fun photos... but check out my strawberries! They apparently are enjoying the cool, wet weather we have been having.

Day 124
May 4: On our way home from aerobics we saw a crane in operation at the nearby pipe factory. So of course we had to drive over and watch. While we were there I noticed all this colorful graffiti on the walls of a tiny storage unit complex. I find it graffiti strangely compelling, but isn't it too bad that these artists waste their talent like that?

Day 125
May 5: Last night we planted our vegetable garden! I can't wait for fresh tomatoes. My Honey hasn't had time to set up the drip system yet, so today the boys helped me water the plants. They thought it was SO fun!

Day 126
May 6: Yesterday we actually managed to have a nice picnic in the park with friends. It was SO much fun. While we were there, Jonah found some pine cones that we just HAD to take home. He knows how much Grandma likes them, so we brought them with us. Later he asked me if he could paint them red (his favorite color). I thought... sure, why not?! I think they look pretty good. Maybe I've got a little interior decorator on my hands!

  1. that jumping picture is really cool... is he flying or falling with style?

  2. LOVE the tub picture. Love love it.

    I am totally with you on graffiti. It IS compelling!!

    Hooray for Spring coming back!! Down with the rainy, muggy days! :)

  3. I'm so jealous of u having fresh produce from your our garden :-(
    I always wanted to have one and still 'm hoping to have one day.

  4. I am loving the pine cone photo! Something about it just sings to me :)

  5. I didn't even know you could find the color red in Utah County :)

    Yes, I've done the McDonald's thing, and I'm not ashamed of it either. Not very much, anyway.

    Graffiti makes for some very interesting background -- as long as you can find some without vulgar words.

    Great shot!

  6. your theme for the week...sure seems to be FUN! WOW! what a blessing your life is. :)

  7. That jumping pic is great!!! LOVE it!!! I really need to get more veggies planted - I have some tomatoes and broccoli in right now but that's it. What are you growing?

    (sidenote: I have yet to take advantage of McD play place but I think the next rainy day we have I will have to do that. My father does it with the boys all the time though)

  8. I really like the photo of the graffiti! I usually hate when people do that, but this photo is nice!! That is awesome you have strawberries!

  9. Cute pictures! I love the one with the watering can. Kids love those things, don't they!

  10. I love the tub picture!!

    We had frineds over the other night, and put Buddy (just 2) in the tub with their litle one, 10 months old.

    The two of them, instead of sitting facing one another sat and looked at me, and squished themselves into only half of the tub!!

  11. That tub picture really is awesome!

    And I have taken my kids to McDonalds even when it is nice out when I didn't want to be stuck at home with them all evening. :)

  12. ooo, the red is so cool. and I love the one of your son watering the plants. very sweet.

  13. Oh I LOVE the bath funny!! Great shots..i like the pinecone one too!
