catch the moment 365: week eighteen

Yay for the month of May! We are getting closer to summer and further away from that putrid winter that couldn't end soon enough.  We have been busy having fun and spending time outside on the really nice days.

Linking up again this week with Mindi from Simply Stavish, Sarah from Nurse Loves Farmer, and Stephanie from Behind the Camera and Dreaming.

120/365: April 30th.  Sea of Legos.  Cute boys working side by side. Not always as harmoniously as what you see here.

121/365: May 1st.  The first day of my favorite month of the year! Unfortunately, it was kind of cold and dreary. Dexter thought it would be a good day to snuggle up with monkey and watch a movie. Apparently our kitty, Niko, thought so too!

122/365: May 2nd. We didn't have a whole lot going on Friday night.  Played at the gym for awhile, grabbed some Wendy's for dinner, picked up some party supplies for Dexter's birthday, and finally went home to color and play with Play-doh til bedtime.

123/365: May 3rd. Ploppin' pepperonis on our homemade pizza. And poppin' a few in their mouths simultaneously. 

124/365: May 4th. Tired (and heavy) little boy wanted to be carried for most of our 2 mile nature hike. Makes for a great workout. 

125/365: May 5th. We had an impromptu dinner with friends and I got to spend some time with this wonderful girl.

126/365: May 6th. This is cute, y'all.  One of Theo's favorite things at school is stringing beads or making bracelets and necklaces. I am getting quite an extensive collection of handmade jewelry. Every day when Dexter sees that I am wearing a pretty new (always pink/purple) bracelet, he asks for one. But he makes sure to tell Theo that he wants his to be blue and red.  Months of this, you guys.  Months.  Well, on day 126, Theo FINALLY remembered to make Dexter a bracelet of his own. It made Dexter's day and just about made me cry.  Ssssooo sweet. 

That does it for this week. Which photo is your favorite of these seven? Is it wrong if I say my favorites are 123, 124, 125, and 126? What can I was a great week. 



  1. That is a lot of legos. I have to say I'm not looking forward to those days!

    1. Ha! I know what you mean. But oddly enough, I don't mind it as much as I thought I would (except for when they lose a piece that is critical to sustaining life and/or their happiness). They are a bit young for them but they love them and will (hopefully) play with them for many years. Theo has gotten really creative with them and it's fun to see his imagination grow.

  2. Look at all those legos!!! We have the larger ones - but those little ones.. oh goodness me! Great shots this week!

  3. Love the Lego shot and the pepperoni one too!! :)

  4. I love the nature walk shot. Perfect and so green!! Yes savor the rare moments they are playing nicely together. I know I do!

  5. Always such great shots!!

  6. Love Love the Legos! I have a thing with legos, even as a full adult with no children.
    The cuddled up on the couch - May 1st, is awesome - makes me want to cuddle in too -love the monkey!
