Breakfast Picnic

We went on a breakfast picnic yesterday morning. The boys loved their blueberry muffins and eating alfresco.

Caleb 21 Months

Caleb is even closer to being two!! 

He is such a sweetheart, constantly making the cutest faces and wanting to cuddle and not afraid to give out hugs. He ate about a 3rd of a watermelon last night after eating a good sized dinner. His diaper was more than full this morning. He is really enjoying his books and there are some favorites that will get him talking every time like Doggies by Sandra Boynton, The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood and Big Red Barn by Margret Wise Brown. 

I really loved taking the photos this month. We slept in until 6:45 the morning of but managed to get dressed and out the door with camera and props in hand and set up before 7am at our neighbors backyard. The early morning sunlight coming up over the fence was perfect... so glad we slept in! The best part was the boys were all smiles! They are generally happy first thing in the morning but I was a little nervous about them not eating first thing (like the usually do) but they loved getting a chance to read and Caleb had a bag of Cheerios in his hand the whole time. The session didn't last more than 15 minutes but it was seriously a blast watching them giggle together and look through their books.

The 4th

We spent our first 4th of July with my family. It was nice not driving but we did miss Jacob's family.

I bought a few fireworks since we didn't think it wise to take the boys out way past their bedtime to see the big ones up close. We could not get the boys to hold a sparkler but they LOVED the poppers and had fun watching their Aunt Vanessa and Uncle Adam light the flowers and tanks and fountains.
We didn't get around to light painting this year but I have leftover sparklers that I hope to use later.

What Happened To June!?

Wow, I've been terrible at keeping up with this blog! I managed to take lots of photos but spent little time doing anything with them. Except I DID print out a book of just the boys so that's something.

I found them banging on the keyboard this morning. Making a joyful noise. I love their feet together.

This last Sunday. I love their outfits!

We got our family photos taken this last month and I managed to get a few of just the boys before our photographer arrived. I loved having Jacob there helping me get them to smile.

I love when they kiss!

These last photos are some of my favorites that I've taken of the boys (pre- father's day this year) I put them into accordion mini books as gifts for my dad and husband and of course myself.
I think I've done well so far this year!

I have so may ideas for photos and I kind of want to just take theirs but then I think about the lenses I can buy when I take other people's photos and I think I will be sticking with it for a while.
