Something to make you laugh

Really? Look at these faces!

And these…

They love looking in or out of the window by the door at each other or us. The only time they don’t love it so much is when they watch their daddy walk away on his way to work. When they see him getting ready for work they start to get upset and whinny.

Here are photos from the kids first visit to the strawberry patch. It was a lovely overcast day.
The first bite. I love Blake’s hair!

They didn’t mind being barefoot. Guy was helping me get out the door to meet some friends and forgot to put their shoes on. I didn’t notice until we got there.

Lisa took some shots with me in them and of the kids.

There was crushed strawberries everywhere. Luckily I thought to bring some wipes out into the field.

Great shot, Lisa!! Thanks for getting the goo all over Madison’s face.

Blake checking out his messy clothes. Maybe he’ll love being clean and having everything clean around him like Guy. That would be nice.

He is so done and needed some cuddles.

Lisa was up for the job as long as he was wiped down first! If I had those cute pants on I’d feel the same way.

Then Madison decided she was done.

She doesn’t like how dresses hinder her crawling so she posts her legs up like below and crawls with her hands and feet. It is so funny. Hopefully it helps encourage her to walk sooner.

Her very messed up dress floating through the air. It took me quite a few tries to get this shot.

I set the camera on interval timer to take a shot every 7 seconds for 11 frames. We couldn’t count to save our lives and were getting tired of trying to guess. So we decided to jump for a shot. That got us giggling trying to guess when to jump.

Here we are totally giggling. Then Lisa decided she was done after this and walked out.

I walked right up to the camera with Blake to burn the extra frames. This gem is the result.

After only a couple more days they were already this big!

Only a few days later they were all out of the nest. This was the last shot I got before they were all gone.

ooh, a strawberry patch! what a great idea for a weekend trip with my little ones. though i think we will do blueberries instead since it is a serious obsession of theirs. i love the shots!

That looked like a ton of fun! I also loved Blake’s hair and all the strawberry mess. :)
