    I love the second picture, you can see each one of his delicate eye lashes! I’ve said this a ton but I am in love with blonde haired blue eyed little boys. Getting one of my own doesn’t seem to be possible but maybe my genes will be strong :)!

    I love days like that — especially if the house is clean (which it never is around her so…).

    i love these shots. they are relaxing to even look at!

Finally!

As Grant and I were coming home from our run yesterday morning we saw a man walking around the perimeter of our grass…I thought, yay, the sprinkler system! Long story short, he was a sprinkler guy, but for the house next door, but gave me an estimate lower than we had previously AND he could…

    yay for sprinklers!

    Clost ups are my favorite, but Grant’s face in that last one is too cute, it made me giggle!

    He is just too adorable! Do you add anything to his eyes or are they that blue from the start? How fun and relaxing to actually watch the yard “water itself” :)!

    You can tell he has been spending a lot of time outside because he is getting really blonde. Yay Grant! Maybe he will take after his uncle and compete at diving. I hope everything goes well with the landscaping.

  • Mama Nirvana

    Yippee for the sprinkler guy! I’m so proud of Grant for going off the diving board — he is so brave.

    Good job going off the diving board Grant. He is so brave. Cute haircut.

Beautiful Rain!

If you are watching the nations weather patterns then you’ll know that in Northern Alabama we are in an extreme drought. We are in some serious need of rain. Now, for us Westerners it’s been nice, because it’s been an extraordinary dry summer thus far, so none of that extreme humidity. People are praying for…

    Hey–I think that’s my umbrella. I was wondering where it went! I guess you can keep it at this point :0) Glad to see you’re still a true Oregonian and like the rain. -d

  • Bryce & Brenley

    That is true Oregonian style right there, except for the umbrella part, but you can tell that it is just for fun, not to stay dry.

    I guess it usually rain a whole lot here in Montana, and right after we had moved here, on a Saturday it sprinkled for about 15 minutes, and the next day at church, every prayer that was given had a special thanks for the rain the day before. I thought that it was pretty funny to hear that.

  • Mama Nirvana

    So glad that you got a break from your new occupation as lawn waterer.

    Wow Kim, you make every kind of weather look beautiful and nostalgic with your photos. Love that pink umbrella. Who is the “d” in the comment above? It’s hard for me to imagine Darin having a pink umbrella that he was attached to, so it must be Diana. 🙂

  • Amanda

    wow! your photographs are amazing. I think you should start selling them.

    These are my favorite photos yet. Maybe it is because I am missing the rain right now and we are in the middle of a major drought. These pics are so vivid I can smell the rain. Nice pedi by the way. 🙂

  • Heather Donaldson

    I have to agree with Julia! I have been admiring your photography for a while now & I think these are my all-time favorites! So refreshing & crisp. The ability to make someone who does NOT miss the rain think these look fabulous enough to join in the fun is a real skill!

  • Leah

    I often take feet shots too-and then I realize I have ugly feet. Glad that yours are cute enough to post!

Swim Lessons

Grant started swim lessons yesterday and did a great job! He even was brave and jumped off the diving board! Other news of note, he got a haircut over the weekend… Don’t you just love the construction wrap in the background of these pictures? Some of it is actually coming down this week as we…

    Swim lessons sure brings back memories- I hope he likes them! He sounds like a brave kid already jumping off the diving board!

  • Ang

    I love how you have been experimenting with burning around the edges. If that’s even what your doing. Is this inspired by pioneer woman? Whatever it is, I love it. It really does great thing for focusing on the subject. Grant is a little frogger too. The diving board, very impressive!

  • Ang

    Sorry about the mispelled word! And leaving out the s on things. I should have proof read BEFORE I pushed publish.

  • Mama Nirvana

    Jumping off diving boards during swim lessons is one of my most painful memories — I was terrified. Grant is so brave. This is the kick I need to get John in lessons.

    We have nothing fun planned, and my birth was cancelled, so home today with Mike.

    Amy

One…Two…Three…JUMP!

    Look at that handsome boy!!! Love the new flower photo. I hope that we are in Oregon at the same time as you one of these days so you can photograph my kiddos. Also I think Ender and Grant would have a blast playing.
