April Showers Bring May Flowers ... Or Maybe Just Crazy Life Events?

May 09, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

April was quite the month!  Perhaps the biggest stories of April were the health crises that our family experienced, with and ER visit due to an asthma attack for Cayleigh and an extended hospital stay for my husband, Russell.  We also had Russell and Seanna's birthdays, the National Cornbread Festival, and Cayleigh starting preschool in the mix.

I love moments like those!  They make all the harder moments with bad news a little bit easier to deal with.  There was also lots of flower and garden planting.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY Who needs regular clothes to play in the sandbox?  Let's just skip a step and go out in our Elsa nightgown.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY A little bit happier here with a piece of bread and a toy ... although he would have loved to have been outside.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY NiNi's bed will always be a favorite; whether for playing or for stories when you don't feel good.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY DM PHOTOGRAPHY I now have a five year old ... who had to have pizza (with a face), balloons, and a strawberry cake for her actual birthday.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY Yeah, Sawyer pretty much hates going into the carseat but it does make a good nap spot when going to work with mommy.

DM PHOTOGRAPHY The last two days of the month are spent celebrating my niece's birthday and then Seanna's.  There is exactly 20 years and 1 day difference in their ages and Seanna was the first girl born in the family after Laura.  This gorgeous sunset became my {sky} shot when I spotted it while at a family cookout to celebrate their birthdays.
