Spring pictures...

I haven't posted very many pictures lately. And I haven't been taking all that many either until May came around. Then I felt like getting the camera out again. I don't seem to find as many things to take pictures of in the later part of winter.

Owen fell asleep last week after we came home from a day at Lisa's house. I asked him if he wanted to go and finish napping in his bed or watch some TV. He opted for the TV where he fell asleep in about 5 minutes!

This was taken last week when he was playing in the pool for the first time this year. There were also 3 other boys in the pool! They had a great time!

One of my favorite things of spring. Lilacs!

Now that the lilacs are done the iris are blooming.
And this is one of my gnomes hiding out between the hosta.
I get a little obsessed taking pictures of the dandelions in the spring. I love to get that perfect focus. And this was it! I was really happy with this one once I uploaded all of them to the computer.

Today I went to babysit Nikki and her daughter for a bit while her mom went to an appointment. She has been home since Thursday and is doing well. She is rather weak and tires easily and has to take an astounding variety of medications but so far she's doing well and her blood levels continue to improve. Thank you to all of you who are keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.

And a quote to share for Wednesday:

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. - Marcus Aurelius

Such a wonderful way to begin a day.

Wonderful photos! That dandelion shot is amazing. :) So sweet of you to go sit with your friend for a bit. Continuing to lift her up in prayers.
