Time to clean up

I had zero prompts done as of yesterday morning. I hit a mental snag with this one...but it was a great set of prompts. It didn't help that I'd hardly had time to devote to photography last week. Luckily, Saturday, and a trip to the Hartford Science Center, got me back on track.

Time to Eat

We went to one of my favorite sushi places last night and, of course, I brought along my camera. The entire building is lit solely by red lights, so my pictures are rather crazy-looking. On the bright side, I will be strengthening my editing skills as I attempt to fix them. I left this one slightly red because I like the in the moment feel of it. Jared was absolutely determined to eat his entire meal with chopsticks. Including his rice. I've never seen someone concentrate more during a meal. It was really cute to watch.

Getting Ready

Mario made this bowl in his glassblowing class last year. I love it so much that I claimed it as my own. I keep all my morning essentials in it rather than letting them clutter up the surface of my dresser (well, that still happens sometimes). This is definitely my getting ready bowl.

Playtime

This photo was taken yesterday at the Science Center. As you play with the different instruments, you get to watch the music you are creating in wavelengths on a screen. He was so engrossed. To see your kiddo really fascinated by something is pretty amazing...which is why these types of photos hold a special place in my heart. I'm not sure he even knew I was there.

Sweet Dreams

Mario left last night, so I had the bed to myself. Or so I thought. I woke up to this sleepyhead laying on the pillow next to me. In a rather human-like way, actually.

Scrub-a-dub (dub)

Jared has a whole bucket of rubber ducks in varying sizes and styles that were collected throughout his younger years. Occasionally he will take them out to the hot tub and soak surrounded by duckies.

Happy Sunday!

  2. That glass bowl is pretty! I wouldn't mind having one just like that on my dresser. :)

    When I saw your first picture, I immediately thought of my boy: He would love the shirt that your boy had on... and my son is learning how to use chopsticks now, too.

    Great shots!

  4. These are all great interpretations! My daughter has quite the duck collection from her younger years too. Her cousin pulls them out and plays with them when she's over.

  7. I'll see your last minute pull together of photos and raise you 12-18 hours (mine came together this morning). I can't tell you how many times I looked over at the cat snoozing this week and thought - that would be PERFECT for sweet dreams. I completely understand your delight over pictures of your son engrossed in an activity - love that about kids.

    Well done with your group.

    1. You have me beat! :) I had a couple photos I took of my son sleeping last weekend, but couldn't resist the cat with his head on my husband's pillow.
