Spring is finally here and we have taken full advantage and spent every minute outdoors that is possible.
But the saying rings true: April showers bring May flowers.
And so we've had a lot of indoor play too which often ends in a meltdown because we just can't go outside.
Henry's newest obsession is playdoh and I have to say, I don't remember it being such a mess. It can get EVERYWHERE...and I mean everywhere.
Of course, Henry's favorite thing will always be pretending to be a dog. And cars. Well...anything with wheels really.
My boy is so fearful and wild some days, climbing to the tops of everything, jumping off couches, and running circles around his Mama.
But other days he's nothing but sweet and kind and loving, giving big, tight hugs and kisses.
I love both his sweet innocence and kind heart and wild side all the same. It is equal parts that make him Henry, and also make him boy. My boy.
There's also this, this photo which Mama has not seen yet and has no idea how much she is going to love. I know she thought I was bonkers when I said, 'trust me, you're going to cherish this simple shot years from now' and I hope to continue getting it every single time I take their photos. But she will, because I mean...just look. Look at that precious face - the same and yet changed, and Mama's love...it's priceless. This is why I love photography.
Oh yeah...and there's me. Still working on becoming the best I can be. Down 35 pounds, feeling wonderful about how far I've come and yet, a little discouraged about how far I've yet to go. But I'll get there...just keep on believing in me.
Now follow along by hopping over to Sara's page to see how she documented a day in her life!

Henry's Easter basket has a huge theme this year: BEACH.
We will be on the beach in less than 3 weeks and Henry needed some beach toys to play in the sand so I figured, why not turn an Easter basket into a beachy Easter bucket!
So what's inside?
|This was his favorite shirt last year so when I found a larger size on clearance, I snatched it as quickly as I could. It will be PERFECT for our trip to Disney.|
|What little boy doesn't NEED socks with Planes on them? Plus, they were a dollar...|
|We're going to be digging and raking fools.|
|Let's build a Sandcastle!|
|I had to add a card for us to write a little message in.|
And because I'm the best aunt ever - I put my niece and nephew little goodie bags together too - complete with that 'prized' money-egg!

3) Rinse your green beans so that they are no longer completely frozen (you could use canned too but I prefer to stay away from canned veggies) and rinse well. Layer them on top of your potatoes and sprinkle your minces garlic on top of that.
