A Look Into Our Lives {Unscripted} - May 2015

June 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

After reading the {Life Unscripted} blog circle posts, it occurred to me what a neat idea that was to share some of what happened in the photographers' lives the previous month.  So, taking those posts as inspiration, I decided to start a similar monthly blog post.  I certainly have the photos, with my Project 365, so I invite you to take a moment to see some of my life {unscripted} in this blog post.  When you're done, be sure to check out my galleries from each month's Project 365.

 

May was certainly a busy month!  We had Mother's Day, birthday parties, Seanna's dance recital, and a trip to Memphis all thrown in with our everyday lives!  I also started playing with freelensing on some shots ... one of the resulting photos is the first photo here in this blog post.  So, without further delay (and in no particular order), here's some of our lives' this month.

 

 

The girls had a great time playing outside Whole Foods following lunch while my mom was in town.  We spent the morning getting pedicures (the girls even got their first "pedicures" (or at least their toenails painted), so they were ready to let some energy out by the time we got to Chattanooga and done eating.

 

We certainly could have used more rain in May so that the fields didn't get as dry and so the grass would come on in for the horses, but we did have some beautiful days.  The temperatures have been fairly mild so far, too, which is great for naps outside while Mommy and NiNi worked on the flowerbeds.

Cayleigh didn't quite get into the whole napping outside thing that day - she eventually went inside for a nap - but she did have fun helping in the flowerbeds.  Seanna got quite a kick out of turning the waterhose on me the following day and trying to get me wet as I was snapping a picture of her watering the flowers.

 

 

 

Seanna is definitely a country girl and loves helping with the horses and chickens (who am I to argue when she wants to help scoop feed, carry buckets, and scrub waterers?  Might as well take advantage for it now, while she's still volunteering).  She also loves doing silly poses for the camera, even if its just the camera on my phone.

Seanna's birthday is in April, but with it being on the last day of April, we usually end up having her party in May.  This year, she had a Doc McStuffins birthday party.  Luckily for me, Laura, Carol, and Linda (NiNi) took the leading on the planning and setting up of the party since trying to do all of that with Sawyer just barely over a month old would have been pretty stressful.  We also had Justis' birthday party a few week later that we attended ... the rain held off and all of the kids had a great time at the park.  We finished off the month with Briley's birthday party, where Seanna and Landon had fun on the 18 foot water slide.

Cayleigh was still enjoying herself the day after Seanna's party ... with lots of cupcakes still around to eat and lick icing off of (and onto her face). DM PHOTOGRAPHY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course, I can't leave out celebrating Cinco de Mayo.  Most years, we just stay at home, but this year we were both working over at the Chattanooga office that day, so we went over to the Mexican restaurant (El Meson) that my husband's law clerk/best friend's family runs for a little bit.  O DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY h, I am going to miss that cheese dip with having to go dairy free until Sawyer gets a little bit older now that we've discovered that he has an intolerance for cow's milk protein (at least I still have salsa).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warm weather brings with it water fun outside (and more freelensing practicing)!  There have already been multiple times where the girls don't wait for us to get their swimming suits either, just going straight to playing in their regular clothes.

Sawyer is starting to enjoy some outside time and playing on his playmat as well.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY Bubbles, bubbles, and more bubbles!  We already have that activity marked off of our summer bucket list (although I don't think that will stop us from having more bubble fun this summer).

My little ballerina had her first ballet recital!  She did really good (and loved being backstage), although she did get distracted a bit by the dinosaur.  Be sure to check out her recital gallery!

DM PHOTOGRAPHY We did get some rain in May, which led to both Seanna deciding to catch the rain and to some dancing in the rain (another summer bucket list item marked off).

Can you believe that there's almost 6 months difference in age between these two?

DM PHOTOGRAPHY A trip to Memphis led to a visit to the new Bass Pro Shop in the Pyramid.  And a stroll in Downtown Memphis to Westy's for lunch.

Cayleigh didn't quite make it through lunch ... the late night traveling the night before and skipping her normal naptime caught up with her (PawPaw apparently makes a good pillow, too). DM PHOTOGRAPHY The afternoon light in my parents' new house was just too perfect with this scene for me to resist getting a shot (although Sawyer would have probably preferred for me to keep rocking him).

DM PHOTOGRAPHY Blackberries were a favorite treat, too!  I know someone who is going to enjoy it when our wild blackberries are ready to pick this summer!

A little bit of music and dancing as Cayleigh and Eli played together ... we had renditions of "Let It Go" and "Billie Jean" before it was all said and done.  Unfortunately, I did not catch on camera (nor see, I just got to hear about it) the two of them reliving their kiss from when they were babies.

Speaking of music, Sawyer loves blues and jazz music ... to the point know where he will scoot closer to my phone when I turn music on for him while he's napping when I'm at work.

Sibling playtime as Cayleigh took advantage of Sawyer scooting off of his playmat.  She did decided a few days later to entertain him, though.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY Speaking of playtime, here's a few shots of Sawyer starting to play ... at two months old, he's definitely already changed a lot!

Well, that's our life {unscripted} from May!  Be sure to check back next month for the highlights from June!  It is shaping up to be a busy month as well, with a Braves game planned, a camping trip, getting the garden planted, and working on clearing some of our bucket list items!  Be sure to leave me a comment below to let me know that you were here, too.  Looking forward to seeing you then!
