Tulip season

Since Nancy is visiting, and by serendipity I had today off, we decided to make the short drive to Burnside Farm to take in the tulips they grew.  While it wasn't quite as grand as Keukenhof (what is, really?), it was a nice way to get outside and enjoy some sunshine.

If you count Catherine's iPhone as a camera, we each brought one (or two).  The place was pretty busy for a Thursday afternoon, but not crowded, which was nice.

Not Leah's first wooden shoe she has stood/sat in...

This photo of Ian was a bit tricky to get, since he was in full sunlight.  Leah helped provide the shade, but the angle was difficult.  I was striving for Ian's blue jacket against the yellow daffodils, but this is what you get.

Family fun

Leah wanted me to play a bit tonight. Since I didn't particularly want to do more school stuff, AND since the days of Leah wanting to roughhouse with me are numbered, I couldn't pass up the chance. After we were done, I asked her if I could shoot her photograph, to which she obliged.

We had a good time with that. Leah convinced me to let her stuffed elephant, Ellie, take her photo, which was blurry and not on target. That got us to laughing, so we brought Ian over. He wasn't particularly happy to have his photo taken, but I did manage to sneak a photo of him smiling at my antics.

Then, to make Ian feel a bit better about getting his photo, I asked if he'd like to take my photo. Ian couldn't say no to that. Leah jumped in with Ellie...

...which made Ian grab Froggy.

I even managed to convince Catherine to come up for a photo. I don't have very many photos of Catherine, glad she broke down!

Have a great day,
