catch the moment: week twenty-two

Linking up for Catch the Moment: Week 22 with Mindi at Simply Stavish, Stephanie at Behind the Camera and Dreaming, and Sarah at Nurse Loves Farmer.

This week has been full of fun, adventure, and surprises.  Whenever I think about things that have happened in the last seven days, a few highlights (and maybe a few lows) might pop into my mind. But when I compile these posts - one tiny glimpse of each day of our lives, I realize and think about how much we really do pack into each Wednesday through Tuesday. The pictures trigger memories of other things that we did on the same day.  I thought I would be losing steam with this project by now, but the opposite is happening. I look forward to putting the posts together, even if there are many days where I've just grabbed the camera for the sake of having at least one pic to post from that day.

Here we go...

148/365: May 28th. Just a laid back Wednesday afternoon of coloring while dinner was cooking.  I love coloring. Before the boys, I hadn't done it in years. Now I find myself still sitting at the table sometimes after they've long moved onto something else. 

149/365: May 29th.  One of those hit-the-brakes moments on my way to work when I saw this and many other beautiful poppies blooming in a field of wildflowers in front of a barn that I have photographed before.  Love this picture. 

150/365: May 30th. Friday morning drop-off at the babysitter and I spent a little extra time with the boys, letting them walk over to see the fishies.  Ryan and I decided on the spur of the moment to head to Kings Island for the day and I knew I wouldn't see them again until the next morning. 

151/365: May 31st. Read all about Theo's rise to stardom in this separate, dedicated blog post

152/365: June 1st. What better way to spend the beginning of June than at the strawberry patch, picking berries for the first time?  See and read more from our visit here

153/365: June 2nd. Surprise! Nothing like coming home from an otherwise disappointing Monday to find belated birthday gifts from an old friend waiting in the mailbox! 

154/365: June 3rd.  One of those hurry-up-and-take-a-pic-before-the-day-is-over pics.  But I like it. That's my big little boy watching Sheriff Callie before dinner.

I really like all my photos again this week, but my favorite has to be that poppy in front of the barn on day 149.  So many of these pics elicit warm, happy memories for me.  Hope your week was full of warm fuzzies, too.

xo,

    1. Thank you... the imagery of someone licking their computer screen is almost too much! Ha! I guess if my photo brought that out in you, I'm taking that as a compliment and running with it!!

  9. Great photos! The poppy one is gorgeous. And Crayola Twistables?!? I must look these up. I find myself lingering after Lily is done coloring. It is relaxing.

    1. WHAT you guys don't have the twistables? They are great -- much harder to break. Unless you aren't paying attention and the kid twists the crayon/colored pencil ALL the way before coloring...
