No paparazzi please

Thursday, 31 May 2007

This picture makes me laugh. Ava is getting so animated and has gotten into the habit of charging at me when I lie on the floor to take her picture. Then she demands to see the picture on the screen afterward. An artist in the making...



A random shot from last week of Ava sitting in her favourite Dora chair...

Ava's room

Wednesday, 30 May 2007

Looking at my friend Sheri's blog a few weeks ago I realized that I haven't taken pictures of Ava in her room for a really long time. Definitely not since she became mobile. Here are some pictures I took of her a few weeks ago. It's time to drop her crib to the bottom notch before she gives me a heart attack.

Thanks for looking!

Trip to the Antique Market

Saturday was a lot of fun. We went to an antique market at a conservation area and spent the day looking around. The rain was off and on, but off enough that I was able to take some pictures.

Can you spot the handicapped parking sign in the shot with the parked cars? Look hard for it - it's like finding Waldo. Not exactly the most convenient spot for handicapped parking, is it? Would you believe me if I told you that from the place where I was standing, you still had a five minute walk to get to the gate of the antique market?

The slide picture is of Ava and the little guy in the other pictures is a good family friend. He is easily the smartest little kid I have ever met. I could talk to him for hours. We walked around the antique market as he told me how I should never double dip and explained the difference between double dipping and double grabbing. It was very informative....

Thanks for looking!

Edited to add: I should probably mention that Christie is the name of the conservation area the antique market was held at. That is the significance of the cookie tin.

Play date

Monday, 28 May 2007

Last Wednesday Ava played outside with her cousins A & M. She had a great time as they pulled her all over the place. I have never seen such big smiles before.

They are great with Ava and she is very fascinated with them. They always make a point of running up to her when they see her outside and saying hi. It's nice to have such great neighbours.

A beautiful couple

Tuesday, 22 May 2007

Here are some pictures taken during an engagement session yesterday. I had a great time taking the pictures. The couple was so laid back and open to all of my crazy suggestions. I was so happy they went with the flow as I'm sure they were wondering what on earth I was doing (I am sure "why is she photographing our butts?" crossed their minds at one point! Thanks guys for being such ready and willing subjects. It's obvious you both love each other very much and I wish you the best of luck!

Anyway, without any further ado, here they are...

The beautiful bride-to-be...



The handsome groom-to-be...



A different kind of ring picture...



Together...







Thanks for looking!

More from Mother's Day

Monday, 14 May 2007

Ava playing with the frog (she so doesn't get this from me. I wouldn't touch that frog with a ten foot pole)...



Sara introducing Ava to the grass. She wasn't a fan at first and poor Sara had to hold her up because she wouldn't touch the ground with her bare feet...



Taking pictures in the backyard with Emma...



A photographer in the making...



Blowing dandylions...

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day! Here are some pictures I took today while we were at our family Mother's Day BBQ.

Wandering around the gardens...



Sara almost gave me a heart attack when she found this little guy. Ava wasn't scared but I kept my distance...



Today was Ava's first time sitting on the grass. She didn't like it at first - everytime she was lowered to the grass she would tuck her legs up under her so her feet wouldn't touch. After a few minutes she was crawling around and seemed to like it....



Both of these images were straight out of the camera...



Playing with my niece. We had a great time taking pictures of anything and everything. ..



Hiding in Grandma's new potting shed...



Thanks for looking!

A day at the park

Sunday, 13 May 2007

On Saturday we went to Riverside Park before we went to dinner for Mother's Day. The weather was beautiful. The only way the day would have been better is if the carousel had been running. We'll be going back once it opens for the season...

Through the tunnel at the playground...



The carousel...



A few pictures of my beautiful sister with her fiance....
