151/365 On the Move!

Pulling from last weeks archives since I am a little under the weather today.
Not sure what I will do for 365 when the girls move out in 4 weeks. You will probably get a lot of flowers!

149/365 Gabriel

Newborn Session. As difficult as I find these to do (babies are on their own schedule), I love finding tender moments that really portray the beauty of motherhood.

148/365 Goslings

Aren't these babies just adorable. Their parents didn't seem to mind me photographing them as long as I kept my distance.

147/365 Proud Mama

Attended the Celebration of Life Awards and Ceremony in Winnipeg yesterday to watch our son along with other paramedics, receive recognition for his part in a critical incident in Winnipeg almost a year ago. Mark was first paramedic/firefighter on the scene.

The girls helped me do a lot of planting so they are excited to see what the recent rain is going to do to all our plants.

144/365 Sisters

Man, it has been a busy weekend! I have been carrying my camera a lot - family shoots and then in studio newborn today. So before taking the studio down tonight the girls did a little posing for me. About 100 shots and about 90 of them are priceless. Those girls have the moves. But I will post this one of the two of them tonight.

142/365 The Traveler

I love it when they emerge from the basement after spending time in Grandma's "tickle trunk" and they are deep in imaginative play. She was on an adventure that included some serious travels and played in the back yard for over an hour dressed like this - mostly hide n seek with Uncle Harold and her sister. They played until sunset - this is what summer is all about.

141/365 Hangman

Friday night and Grandpa suggested we go out for supper so we went to Montana's.
It didn't last too long with two little girls with colds who needed to get to bed.
But it was a nice break and we played a few rounds of hangman before they petered out.
Check out the regular blog for some of our science fun we had today.

137/365 Summer

Corn on the cob on the deck means summer is officially here.
That and I spent four hours planting my garden today.

136/365 Lemonade

The girls are a couple of budding entrepreneurs. They had three customers and sold 4 glasses of lemonade and somehow didn't have any leftover.
They were quite pleased to walk away with $1.25 in their pockets.

134/365 Painters

My artists were busy creating today. I love watching them concentrate as they work on their masterpieces. We were painting these canvases to possibly hang above their new beds in the new house. It was  busy day. We worked on reading and rhyming skills, painted, baked cupcakes with Uncle Harold, danced while Grandma played the only song she still knows how to play on the piano and played two rounds of "Life". Norah won both! Again!

129/365 Happy Mother's Day

So blessed to be able to spend time with my 90 year old Mom. She is still sharp as a tack and living independently. An amazing woman!

Went for a long walk this morning through Beacon Hill Park and another long walk down to the harbor this afternoon. So many gorgeous flowers are blooming right now. Amother beautiful day in Victoria. Heading home early tomorrow.

127/365 Butchart Gardens

Wonderful three hours at Butchart Gardens today with David and my Mom.
Just spectacular. If I lived here I would buy a seasons pass and visit every month. Then lunch at Spinnakers - seat on the balcony overlooking the ocean. Afternoon snooze.
Perfect day!

Meet Max - the newest member of the family.
So good to have the kids home for a visit this weekend.
