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!
