Happy Second Mother's Day!

We had a great weekend. Jim and Chloe got me a new camera for Mother's Day and I love it!  I had a Nikon point and shoot and it was horrible!  I had to push the button 3-4 times every time to get one picture and then most of the time the pictures turned out out of focus or I missed the shot completely because 2 year old's move fast.  He got me a Canon elph 300HS and it is AMAZING! It takes pictures fast and in focus!  I am so happy with it.  I don't need a camera to take great portraits that is what Jim's is for, I just wanted something that will take good snapshots.  Something to help me capture what life is like so we don't forget.  Moments like this...
Chloe loves to help me with my hair.


I love how serious she was about helping get my hair dry.

After nap today I caught some pictures of Chloe playing on her climbing toy.  

Love those eyes! 




Then there are faces like this that can never be duplicated!

It was fun taking pictures of some of the flowers in the yard too!  

Our first Clematis bloom of the year.  I can't wait to see them all in bloom.

And I had to give the Marco function a try too. 

Mother's Day was great.  Chloe and Jim brought me McDonalds and Starbucks in bed! Then Jim took Chloe to Lowes while I went to Target by myself!  Then we spent the rest of the day out in the yard.  Jim did most of the work and we got grass planted in the back!  Can't wait for it to come up, project backyard oasis is a work in progress.  

And last but not least, new job update...I LOVE it!  I am so happy that I took the plunge and did it.  Everyone is so great to work with and I am actually not dreading going to work everyday!  

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

I love the pictures. Chloe is the perfect model. I would buy a better camera too if I had something to take pictures of. Your flowers are great.
