Easter Sweets

I took several pictures over the Easter weekend. From egg hunts, to Easter dresses, to the Easter Vigil, I captured some nice Easter-y images. But these three are just so sweet. The picture of the girls hugging (or actually Lucy hugging Sophie) makes me smile because of the look on Lucy's face. It's especially sweet to me b/c Lucy has beat up her sister a lot this past week, so it's nice to see a shot like this. The second photo of Sophie just checking out life and green things and such is also super sweet. She is such a sweetheart of a girl--and I like how she stops to take in life and smell the flowers. The third picture makes me think that Yay, Spring is coming even though this month's weather has been more February then Spring. The little petals are sweet and sturdy standing up to the cold and the wind. Here's to all the sweet moments in your life and also to hoping that the sweet sun makes an appearance SOON!

I love me my arboretum

We are very lucky to have a wonderful little gem here in Omaha...the OPPD arboretum near 108th & Blondo. It's adjacent to a big ol power station, which makes it that much more beautiful. Here are a few pictures from a fun lunch hour spent there last week (when the weather was warm!)...enjoy.

On Chicken Hawk Wings

I snapped this chicken hawk circling us as we played at the arboretum this week. I think it looks like it could be the album cover to the song On Eagle's Wings...only it's a chicken hawk..not quite as catchy of a tune.  :)  At least I call it a chicken hawk. Maybe it's just a hawk. Chicken hawk sounds better though.

Color and Black and White

FINALLY! I have color in my backyard. My forsythia shrub is about to burst forth with gorgeous yellow flowers. Bring on the sun and heat to help it bloom! I've also included a gorgeous picture of my furry nephew Pip. He's a goof, very happy, lovable, and as it turns out, also has a very regal profile.
