Week 18 in Pictures

Wow, I can't believe it is May already!  And that Mother's Day is this Sunday.  And that our counter top is finally being installed this Friday!  Yay!  Hopefully Doug will have time to finish up the back splash soon and then I can finally do my kitchen before/after post.  So stay tuned.  :)

This week brought us a few days of summer-like temperatures.  In fact, we had to turn on the A/C for a couple days.  It was HOT!  And I discovered that I need to go shopping for some new shorts.  All but one pair of mine are too big for me.  Woot!

This week also brought with it several opportunities.  I was asked three times to take pictures and get paid for it!  One was a wedding, which was Saturday but I was unable to do due to other plans.  Another was taking photos at a school dance coming up.  And last I was asked to take pictures of an almost-two-year-old little boy for his upcoming birthday.  The last is scheduled for Tuesday evening, as long as the weather cooperates.  The school dance is later this month - still waiting for details on it - but I should be able to make it work.  I'm nervous and excited.  Stepping way outside my comfort zone here.  But I'm excited about the learning opportunities.  Anyway, let's look at last week's pics, shall we?

The neighbor's lilacs are blooming!  I wanted to see how many different shades of purple I could pull out for the color palette.  I'm impressed that I was able to find that many.

Alex and I spent some time in the morning at our church so I could exercise.  I walked/ran around the parking lot while he "read" the Bible.  Then we played at the playground for a bit.  It was a beautiful morning!

Grandparents' Day at school.  Doug's parents were able to come to see Nick's program in the morning and Alex's in the afternoon.  I was able to be there to see the programs since I'm involved with PTO.  One of the perks, I guess.  :)

Not sure what was up with me this day, but this was the only picture I took.  A dove sitting in our walnut tree.

I shared this already as part of Project 52's siesta theme.  Honey was wiped out after spending a few hours at the groomer's.

Our snowball bush is blooming.

I suspect we'll be seeing lots of similar photos this week.  :)
I wanted to capture the "super moon" while I was able.  This really makes me want a stronger zoom lens as I had to crop quite a bit just to get this.

LOVE your moon shot! I've linked up because... well you will see why. My photo's of the moon were somewhat more... crapper than yours, heheheee. (but with good reason)
The dogs paws are beautifully shot.
