iheartfaces - Week 47: We ♥ Tooshies

Yes, we love faces... but we  tooshies too!  
Here's my entry for this week.  It was Tadpole's 2nd time skating this afternoon, and he loved it just as much as he did the first time.
I caught this as he was pausing to look out at the ice at the end of the afternoon, after he'd taken off his helmet and coat was running around the arena lobby in his skates.  I just love how cute his little tooshie looks in his big pants.

Flashback Friday - Xmas Tree Hunt 2008

Christmas is my favorite time of year.  And one of my favorite traditions is our annual Xmas tree hunt.  We troop up island for breakfast at Grumpy & Granny’s, then we all pile into vehicles and head out in search of the perfect tree.  We’ve been doing it for quite a few years now, so we were pretty excited to get to take Tapdole on his first hunt when he was about 10 months old.

Galey Farms

A little more catch-up... about a month ago, we met up with Baba and his Mama and Daddy, and we took the boys to the Pumpkin Patch at Galey Farms.
Tadpole was far more interested in the tractor ride than he was in anything else, but I managed to get a few great images anyways.



And while I'm posting, I should take this opportunity to say a belated congratulations to Baba's Mama and Daddy on the birth of their new baby boy on November 11th!  Baba is a big brother!

At the park

I figure it's about time I do a little catch-up blogging...  A few months ago, Tadpole had some playtime at the park with his Unk and Winnie.  He loves playing outside... and I love being able to catch memories like these:

iheartfaces - Week 46: Sun Flare

As if I didn't already love the ifaces challenges enough... this week I'm UBER excited because [b]ecker is the guest judge!!!
My Daddy and I are registered to attend his Vancouver workshop in January, and the idea that he could see one of my images this week has me grinning from ear to ear! 

This week's theme is Sun Flare.  I took my Tadpole out into the front yard a few weeks ago to snap some Xmas photos, and I managed to get a small handful with some flare.  This is my favorite of the few...

(And if you happen to be reading this, Hi Becker!  Welcome to my blog :)  I'm so looking forward to meeting you at your workshop in Vancouver - see you in a few months!)

Flashback Friday - Rib Cage

That’s the name of the adorable onesie that Tadpole is rockin’ in this Flashback.  It didn’t fit him for long though.  It’s not easy to find black baby clothes – but I much prefer these kinds of clothes to “baby” clothes.  And even back then, Tadpole just knew he was cooler when he dressed like a big kid. 

(Omigoodness... would you just look at that chunk!  I miss those pudgy little rolls.)

iheartfaces - Week 45: Autumn Beauty

As I mentioned a few days ago, Mister and I are currently in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with Unk, Ma'am and Papa.  I skipped posting an ifaces entry last week, but I knew I couldn't do it two weeks in a row.

This week's photo challenge is Autumn Beauty.  I chose this photo to enter because I love the color of the background bokeh - and because of Tadpole's typical dirty little boy face.

Graffiti, Cabo San Lucas

While we were walking along the Marina, we spotted a few walls of graffiti.  I'm not sure what it is about graffiti that I love so much, but I'm always drawn to it.

Palm Trees, Cabo San Lucas

I haven't been shooting as much as I thought I would - but I did take my camera with me when we went into town the other day.  Here are some of the palm trees we saw...

Flashback Friday - My Boy

I wasn't sure if I would do a Flashback today... but I miss my boy so much - I really needed to see a little bit of his funny face.
We're not going back too far - just to this past summer - but he's already grown so much. I can only imagine how much bigger he'll be when we get home at the end of next week!

XOXO Tadpole!
Mummy loves you!
