Mother's Day 2013

My requests for today were that I didn't have to cook and that we could get a family photo.  Done and done!

We had a yummy breakfast at Pomegranate and I set up our camera to do some photos in the back yard under our (not blooming since it was pruned back harshly last year) lilac bush.  LWK didn't want his photo taken, but once I got the automatic time set and was going to just do a photo with J, LWK ran and sat down to be in the photo.  Silly boy!

LWK and Daddy (he chose the hat himself)!
LWK and Mommy
Our little family!
After we had photos done with the family, LWK had a great time playing in the birdbath.  He just can't stay away from that water - it is gross and adorable all at the same time.

Caught me!
You can't stay mad at me, Mommy....
I was a bit inspired to take photos today, nut just because of my great subjects, but because my Mother's Day present was Lightroom 4 - a photo editing program.  J has used it on his PC, but since I have been the one taking most of the pictures of our family and I have been using a Mac since Christmas, I needed better software (although iPhoto has been a huge upgrade from what I was using on my netbook for the past few years).  There is going to be a huge learning curve, but I think our family photos will improve greatly AND I am keeping up with my New Year's Resolution to learn how to take better photos!
