Yesterday was a gorgeous day! I love this time of year here. The grass gets nice and green and the pool is ready to swim in. You can break out tank tops and shorts and sundresses...It is by far my favorite time.
These are of Sydney she was just having fun and I was snapping away.
These are with my new lens...don't judge the lens on these though! I am totally getting used to it and need more practice with it. I love the sharpness of it though already. You can see the water droplet on Syd's arm from the hose and all the texture on the stucco behind her.

Anyway....I bought this from an online friend last year when I found out I was having a boy. I wasn't sure we would even get to wear it since it is 12 months and summer is fast approaching. However, living in MA, we are in a cold spell with highs in the 50's and rain, so I pulled it out for Jacob. He looked adorable. The pants were a little long and he did not want to keep on the jacket/vest part, but I loved it on him and had to take a few pictures.
On another note, Sydney completed preschool yesterday and we had her end of the year program last night. I took pictures and video clips. She has made such amazing gains in the last 2 years I am so so proud of her!

These pictures were shot super quickly when I had Sydney try on another Matilda Jane halter that came. If you are new to my blog then I might as well just tell you up front. I love to shop for clothes for Sydney and the boys. I discovered Matilda Jane last year and have not been able to control myself when it comes to her designs. She just had an online art fair, where she had many new designs but in limited numbers. I was able to order several items that you will see on here as the orders trickle in. This is the Deer ol Ellie and I love it! Ellie is her halter style and they all have such cute names! I also have the Ellie at Play coming which I will be sure to feature when it comes. Lighting and focus on these were not good...I used manual focus, which I am def. not up for yet. I will stick to autofocus for the forseable future!

Miss Sydney before school. This is her last week of school! I am so so sad for her. She loves school and says how much she is going to miss her teachers and friends. She will be going to a new school in the fall too. I am sad because I adore her current teachers. She has been with them for 2 years and they have taught her to read and write and do addition and subtraction and basically just an amazing foundation. Most importantly though, they have given her a love of learning which I hope she never loses.
