To start it off...



The weather's been beautiful, but hot in GA...


and, to stay cool, Sam was just playing
baseball with a "water bomb"...

 Naturally, I grabbed my camera for some cool "splashy"
shots, but he was making a crazy face in each one.
Apparently, he's been hanging out with Ashley and
I was none-the-wiser.  Darn it!)








Max loves hanging out in the foyer b/c it gets 
so much sun.  Plus there's always someone 
passing through to scratch his head...

(I love the foyer b/c that sun equals great SOOC photos!)






Luke LOVES being outside, and we're doing that 
a lot these days.  He also loves his "noculars"...

The new heat also signals the end of school, and
Sam only has a week-and-a-half left in 1st grade.
For me, that means a lot of work.  I just started
on his teacher's gift...with this Field Day DVD...


Photobucket




And, Molly just watches us come and go...

(See!  NO tail.)

Sweet Shot Day



Thanks for indulging me!  School is nearing the 
end.  (The. End.) I have a lot going on and need 
to pack a lot in a post.  XO!

I love how determined Sam looks in the photos with the "water bomb" - he is so into it! And seriously, Luke with his noculars - adorable! Good luck getting through the last bit of school...

Great collections of photos. Love the series with Sam, and the cat portraits are wonderful.

love the noculars ...

and now I finally understand Molly no tail! =)
cute shot of her btw!

I had a kitty once with a Manx tail that had two extra cricks in it... it was hysterical... she was fluffy... so it was like a curly pig tail with fluff!! =) we called her puffy kitty. Poor thing!

Ashley Sisk said...

LOL Sam is hilarious! He's definitely been hanging out with me. And Luke...what a cool shot!

Tara said...

Great shots, all, but I especially loved the one of the cat getting ready to pounce. Perfect timing on that capture.

=)

Too funny about the Ashely reference. She's a cutie. Fun pics. Wishin it were warmer here. But I guess I should be careful what I ask for.

Sarah said...

Susan said...

These were awesome Dina! Love stopping by♥

Tamar SB said...

That sounds like a great way to stay cool! Of course it's still in the 40s in Boston!! Send some heat our way! And your kitties are so cute!

frecklesandfences said...

Ah, the heat. Living in Florida, I totally understand. I like the idea of a water bomb - I'll have to try that. Love the photo of the kitty, too. Looks just like my dog: watching all of us come and go.

ChantaleP said...

oh man, send some sun our way!! There's been some sad flooding in my province of Quebec, near our home so I'd love some of that GA sun to dry all this water up! I absolutely LOVE that 'nocular' shot! Awesome!!

kimmyskids said...

Fun shots! Too bad we had to bring out the sweaters in GA this week...at least too bad for me. :) My littest says "noculars" too. Love it.

photosto40 said...

Great shots, I particularly like the binocular shot. Love the reflection in the lenses!

Heidi said...

What great action shots of Sam! Love the noculars too! Have a great week Dina. :)

Water-bomb baseball... we are going to try that game!!

What a fun post! Love the water bomb baseball shots. Too fun! Noculars are so neat! We use ours all the time to watch birds. :) That is a great shot!

AmyLee said...

Oh, your sweet family memories are so adorable. And can you BELIEVE how fast the school year went! My granddaughter gets out about the same time! YIKES! :)

Thanks for a lovely Sweet Shot Tuesday visit.

I will feel better when the weekend come along with warmer temps. It has been too cold the last couple of days.

Serline said...

What a splashing good time! And yes, I see where Ashley might have set the example ;-P

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Water bombs....and 'noculars'. And then...to top it all off, no tail!! I just adored each and every photo and your posting below them. Well done. But, I must say, the favorite of mine is the noculars.

Beach...catcus blossom

Have a grand day!

Jen said...

Rebekah said...

I'm so ready for the end of school! And what's up with these chilly May days?! It's usually blistering hot for Field Day and instead we've had chill and wind and even rain on Monday. yuck.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

His faces are fantastic!!! Great captures there!

Colleen said...

I love the crazy faces!

My Captivating Images said...

Awww...I think his funny faces are cute. :)

Nicolle said...

I love those faces you captured of Sam!!! And the binoculars and Luke.....SO cute. :)

Natalie said...

You're always so involved! I love it! Love the field day DVD. Same and Luke with his "noclars" is so cute! Great stuff today Dina!

LisaShaw said...

Love the shots! Molly is so cute she reminds me of my two dogs when I leave the house. They climb into the dinning room window and watch me with such a look on their faces. I call them my fur baby boys or my fur-toddlers. They act like children often :)

Enjoy the ending of school and the start of a great summer. Our last baby girl at home is going to prom tonight and then her last day of school is May 27th and she graduates June 6th. We take her to Christian University in August. I'm treasuring all the remaining moments now as this Momma Bear heart is going to be holding on tight while also having to let go so she can soar like an Eagle so enjoy these moments with your precious boys. It goes by too quickly.

Love you!
