Taking pictures to remember

I haven't blogged in a couple of days, but I have taken several photos that I'd like to share.

I'll try to tell a story about each one, if there is a story to tell.  Here they are.

Our friendly spider that we watched off and on all day, one particular day.
The boys loved it when she would extend down her silk string, and crawl back up very quickly balling up her silk at the end.  Pretty neat I must say.

Nolan LOVES baby blankie.  Very seldom do you see him without her, unless he's out of the house, even then sometimes you do.  We lost her earlier one night this week, he had to sleep without her one night, but he did have his back-up.....Big Blankie (the one my mom crocheted for him).  I found her the next day in between the comforter and sheet of the bed, never thought to look between those layers.  When I made the bed that's when I found her.

We made homemade sno-cones one night.  Wyatt had rainbow, and Nolan had orange/blueberry.

Wyatt begged to vacuum, so I let him and this is what I got.  Too funny.

What is he going to come up with next?  (This statement applies to both of them)

One of the best expressions ever!
#1, see 2 below

#2, something was really funny

They went to Trader Joe's with Blake, Nolan walked back into the house looking this way.

Nolan LOVES little birds, he calls them 'Chi-Chi' birds.  We can see down on top of the McCormick and Schmick seafood restaurant, there is constantly some water on top of the building.  Nolan, sees these little birds fluttering their wings taking baths in these puddles.  Some of the highlight of his day.

Another morning person

Nothing like a box to play in

Asleep at 8pm, exhausted from riding his bicycle

Wyatt said, "Silly Face!"

Who needs toys when you have boxes?

Blake after work one evening, tired, although I think he looks extremely handsome

Surprised the boys with "Cars 2" tickets, they were excited! 

I love taking pictures, I always have since I was in junior high school.   I just love remembering things or people at that very moment that I took the picture.  Every time I look at pictures, I can remember exactly where I was, what I was doing, and the emotion that went along with it.  It's one of my most treasured items, my camera and my pictures.  They are all so special to me.  I'm so glad that I had a camera when the boys were younger, I remember bits and pieces of their first 2 years of their lives, we were so tired and focused on meeting their needs we didn't do a whole lot of picture taking.  I think I may have 1 to 3 pictures of myself and the boys when they were really little.  I'm so thankful for my friend Renae W. that she took it upon herself to ask to take pictures of our family leaving the hospital with the boys.  They are the only ones that I have.  I will forever treasure those pictures.  They are truly my most favorite pictures of the boys ever.  I want to document our lives every step of the way, and reflect back on our lives when I'm older.
