a rather blustery day

lately i have had saturdays off of work, so a couple of weekends ago we spent the day together outside. the sun was shining and the wind was blowing, what a perfect day for flying kites! danny had never visited the jc raulston arboretum with us yet, so we decided to head there. it was perfect. the wind gusts made it difficult to keep our el-cheapo kites up in the air, but we had a lot of fun trying.



malcolm actually held on this time, and did not let go of the string!




beautiful tree and beautiful girl :)


these statues remind me of edward gorey, so the kids were pretending to be dead, haha



danny enjoying the view from the rooftop garden


i made malcolm stand by the 4, since he is now four!


and i made alanna sit by the letter A


she hates having her picture taken.

a year's worth of photos

 these pictures were taken by danny on his smartphone in 2011. i love that he always takes photos when we are together, or while he is with the kids. danny transferred them to our home pc a couple months ago, and i finally found some time to share them here.

*i would like to make note that we do usually have many photos of alanna as well, but since she is fifteen and hates nearly every picture we take of her, i don't post many of them here. i just don't want anyone to think that she gets left out, because that is definitely not the case. :)
