Let's go fly a kite...

...all the way home from Sam's Club today the boys sang the same two or three phrases they knew of that song! They were so excited. There was not enough wind. So you had to spin or run.
Russ tried spinning.
Kite tail was an issue.
Daddy tried running.

Oh Jedd, he's a hoot!
Note... the smile just gets bigger and the shoes drop off!
You might have to click on it to see it bigger!
Jedd and I also biked over 8 miles all over town today.
Must be my inner biker chick! or is it chic?
Or I am just so in love with spring.
Either way I think I am gonna be sore tomorrow.
I get so crazy in spring!!!

Sorry but there are tons more pics from today that will get posted!
More funny pics of Daniel, they still make me laugh when I look at them.
More spring buds.
Sorry, I am desperate for photo opportunities!
I am learning soooo much just by taking tons and tons of pictures!
I love this quote from a National Geographic photographer, Jim Richardson:
"If you want to be a better photographer stand in front of more interesting stuff."
Don't you love that!?
I am slowly getting over the embarrassment of how I look taking pictures... laying on the ground in my front yard..on my tummy.... moving forward and backwards getting used to a fixed lens (the 50mm 1.8)....
as my friend Janette would say, "It's all good!"
Really, I am sure people notice me way less than I think they do! Really! Who do I think I am, anyway!?
I just live on a street that is 90% retired people,
so everyone is always home ~potentially laughing
as they watch that neighbor girl crawling around the yard with her camera!
Silly me.
