Day 116 - Lava

Declan got a lava lamp for his birthday. 
I snapped a quick couple of shots before heading to bed - apres' soccer & a couple of drinks with the girls, so needless to say, they aren't exactly what I would have liked to capture.
I will try more shots another time - lava lamps are cool.

Day 115 - SIX

He is SIX!  When did that happen?  Hapy Birthday my sweet boy!


Day 114 - Cookies

Declan & I made cookies for him to take to school for his birthday. <3


Day 113 - In a rut

I seem to be shooting the same stuff over and over again - clearly I need to get out more and get myself out of this rut.  But I do enjoy shooting the stuff that surrounds me everyday.  Today, I couldn't decide which photo to use, so you get a bunch.

Jake, watching & waiting for the kids coming down the road.

More Tulips.  I like the light in this one.

A pretty little shrub in our front garden.  I love the delicate white flowers.

Day 112 - Scooby

We celebrated Declan's 6th birthday with a Scooby-Doo mystery party.  Fun was had by all!

Here is the birthday boy post-pinata swing.

I cannot believe he turns six on the 28th.


Day 111 - Ssss

This little fellow was hanging out in our yard today.  He didn't seem to be in much of a hurry, I think he was enjoying the afternoon sun.


Day 110 - Flying high

Okay - technically this photo is a bit of a mess; but it's Friday, we had a BBQ, and some drinks. :)
Todd was throwing Isla sky high & she was loving it!  I grabbed my camera & tried to capture it, in low light, after a few glasses of wine....

And one more, just because...

Days 103 - 109 - Catching up, again.

It's been a crazy week, I am so far behind with everything.  We are getting ready to celebrate Declan's 6th birthday on Sunday, a Scooby-Doo Mystery Party - I still have so much to do.  I have been a bit lazy with my project 365 - I haven't taken a shot for today yet, but thought I would get caught up on the last week while I have a chance.
I hope to get a chance to take a look at some of the blogs I follow and leave some comments - I miss everyone's pictures!
Cheers all & happy shooting!

106 - 109 - Flower Power

The garden is a bloomin'

105 - Feeble attempt

We have a pair of Cardinals that love our yard.  I tried to get a shot of them through the window, with a 300mm lens, without a tripod.  Needless to say, I wasn't very successful.

104 - Relax

Spent the day celebrating one of my BFF's 40th birthday.  The day started at an incredible spa.

103 -Cuddles 

Wee ones cuddling dolls is just plain cute!


Day 102 - Numero Uno

I know, I know, another flower picture, and the 2nd tulip in a row.  What can I say, I love Spring!
This is the first tulip to open in our garden this year.


Day 101 - Declan's Tulip

My son, Declan, has always been obsessed with flowers; in fact for his 3rd & 4th birthdays, he wanted "a purple flower party"  and "a rainbow flower party" respectively.  He loves, loves, loves to pick flowers.  Now my husband loves to grow flowers almost as much as my son loves to pick them; he does not love having his flowers picked.  So when my son found a tulip growing on the side of the road, it was like the holy grail...a garden flower growing wild, just waiting to be picked.  He did & now it is at home on our fish tank in a pretty glass vase looking out on the world.  I feel kind of sad for the tulip's bulb & I hope there is enough stem left to feed it its nutrients so it can come back next year -that is if a squirrel doesn't find it first.
Anyhow, the happiness it brought Declan is priceless & for that I thank this beautiful tulip.

Day 100 - Bust

So I completely forgot today was day 100 of my project 365.  I had hoped to do something special.  Instead I took a couple of quick shots of the hyacinth that is blooming in our garden before rushing off to do errands & play soccer.  I didn't love any of them. And we lost. Boo.
Oh well, hopefully day 200 will be better. :)


Day 99 - Takin' a break

Jake LOVES to play fetch - he is borderline obsessive.  He takes these mini-breaks that last maybe a minute before he is ready to go again.


Day 98 - New wheels

Isla's got a new ride. :)


Day 97 - Baby Blues

Some more wee lovely Spring flowers in our garden.  No idea what they are, but I think they are pretty.



Day 96 - Chilly

It was a bit chilly here today, even the crocuses were staying bundled up!

And for fun, the same shot with some cross-processing:

 Happy Friday!


Day 95 - Waiting

Can you guess who we are waiting for?

I know it's a bit early, but I have a source that says they are headed our way.  Fingers crossed that we get some this year.  There are always several at the cottage, but no so many in the city. I really hope they find us!


Day 94 - Boots

It was a bit of a rainy day today, but we made the most of it. :) 

Day 93 - Bird on a roof

Regal Robin on our garage roof.

Day 92 - Sunset

And the sun goes down on another day.

Day 91 - Bubbles

The kids blew bubbles on Easter morning.


Day 90 - Repeat

Another photo of Isla and another of those little flowers I like so much.  Sorry for the repeat but it is pretty much all I shot today.

And a bonus photo of the Easter Egg Hunt we took part in today at our local Children's Garden.

Day 88 & 89

So for day 88, I did not take a single photo.  This 365 thing is a bit tough right now.  Life seems so busy and I keep putting it on the back-burner and then the day is suddenly finished. 
Day 89 was much better, I took lots of photos, so I will post two.

Snack-Time - Isla & her very much loved "Doggie" and her new to her  "Monkey" (gotta love big brother hand me downs :) ).  She has been taking them with her everywhere and today they had a snack together at the park.

Johnny Jump Ups - or not.  I'm not sure what these little guys are called (they could be baby Iris's) but we have lots in our gardens.
