I'm not sure what's up with my blogging funk lately.  Sometimes I think it's time to throw in the towel and call it quits, but then I remember why I blog in the first place.  I do it for the memories and to have something that Poppy and Sam can look through to remind them of all the fun things we do together.  

Just tonight we went for a quick trip to the playground.  As I was walking out the door, I thought to myself that I should grab the camera.  Then I thought- don't bother, we're only going for a few minutes.  But I grabbed it anyways and I was so glad I did.  It's not that I took any award-winning pictures, but I want to remember every trip to the playground, and pictures help me remember.

After we put the kids to bed tonight Marc and I started talking about how fast time flies and before we know it we are going to be our parents age and Poppy and Sam will be starting their own families.  Time flies by.  But pictures help keep the memories strong.  So I will try to take more pictures and I will continue to blog.

Here's what we've been up to lately...

Poppy's school held an art gala.  Our proud artist showing off her work (it's the picture in between Marc and Poppy and she said it's a picture of a carnival.  Duh!)...


Fishing with cousins...

 Poppy had the first catch of the day...

Sammy thought it was so cool to hold Poppy's fish...



 Our trip to the playground tonight...





playing hide-and-go-seek in the rose gardens...


Daddy being a goofball...

Oh, and just wait - once I go back to work (and start bringing home a paycheck!!!) I'm going to get an iphone (yes, I might be the last person in the world without a smartphone) and one of those new super small DSLRish cameras and I'm going to take sooo many pictures!  Just wait!!!

Don't throw in the towel! But yes, I can feel your pain. I love the pictures of these two partners in crime. I cannot believe how big Sam is now. Yikes.

Oh man, the thought of you throwing in the towel makes me so sad... I love your posts! (And save them for when I can appreciate them!) So many great ones of sibling love... LOVE that.

I hear ya on the blogging funk... I wonder about ending it all the time too. I love how proud Poppy looks with her art work - as she should be! And fishing season is back! Must get my license renewed...
