I'm Baaaaack !!

Long time, no post! I have been spending much of my time down with my mom since Daddy passed.  When I finally return home I spend so much time catching up on the blogs I love that I neglect this poor wee bit of cyberspace I call my own.  Here are a few of my favorite shots that I've captured lately.

The Many Faces of Niko

My youngest grand baby has one of the most animated personalities I've ever encountered.  This makes for some pretty cute photos and will likely be the subject of my next photo book.  Enjoy and feel free to leave caption ideas in the comments.

My Photo Garden

My parents, being from the South, have always had a knack when it comes to gardening.  I grew up with the most wonderful fresh vegetables and a home surrounded with gorgeous flower beds.  I did not inherit my mom's green thumb so rather than torture the poor wee plants I take great delight in capturing them with my camera.  I hope you enjoy the "boo-kay" I've picked below.

A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words

While words have been evading me of late, my camera has been busy. Below are a few shots taken recently. Perhaps the old adage, "a picture's worth a thousand words," will become my new moniker. I hope the few of you who stop by will forgive my long absences and accept my thanks that you do.
This handsome young man is Leia's nephew, Tyler.  I snapped this while at the St Louis Zoo with Leia and her  husband's family.

I am helping this gorgeous gal with her portfolio.  It is very easy to get beautiful photos when the model looks like this!

One of my favorites of the day.

For Rachel at LAWN TEA no post would be complete without an appearance of "Mr Concweet." 

My Dillybar will be starting school this Fall.  He loves math and is constantly asking us to quiz him with math problems.  I hope his teacher can find ways to keep him busy and engaged or he/she will have their hands full!

Happy Birthday, Little Man

My littlest man turns 3 today.  Happy Birthday, Nikolas Lee!!!  Gam's loves you bunches!

I think Niko would make a great fireman...he was very concerned that the candles were left burning while we sang happy birthday! He is saying, "We need to blow out the candles first!"

My Sister's Babies

I spent the day with my sister's family this last week. My oldest nephew was home from Purdue so I took the opportunity to visit and take a few photos. My baby sis and her hubby have a 4-acre "spread" 30 minutes north of me with many beautiful backdrops for photos. Some of my favorite shots over the years have been taken there. It's difficult to believe that I used to change the diapers of these 3...where does the time go?!

Meet Nathan, Caleb and Shelby.  3 of my favorite people :)

A St Louis Easter

I spent Easter weekend in St Louis with my Monkeys Jump.  The weather was gorgeous so we strapped on our cameras and headed to The Missouri Botanical Gardens on Saturday and then to the St Louis Zoo on Sunday.  Below are a few of my favorite shots of the weekend. To view the full size image, click on the photo. Blogger has cut the left side of the images off... grrrrrrrrrrr... and I can't figure how to fix it!
