Spring Time Fun

I am finally beginning to feel better...YAY! Started my antibiotics yesterday...just a nasty case of sinusitis luckily...better than bronchitis anyway. The little man and Ms Thang were playing for a bit before he left to go home so I thought I would take some more Spring photos to share with ya. Well, I got a little distracted. lol

Out of who knows how many photos, I did manage to get a couple of good ones of the little man in the air. *as far as a little man can go anyway* He loves that trampoline! Then I got another idea...

Under the trampoline I went....yeah...flat on my back on the ground....but it was worth it. How cute is this? It was so hard to get him to be still long enough to get a shot but I got one really good one. He thought I was crazy I think but it made him laugh. lol

The girl had to get in on the fun...I was afraid she was gonna jump too hard and make contact with me. She got awfully close more than a few times. The things I do for a photo op. Nice hair-do there, girlfriend! :P

I love to take pictures of them when they're not paying any attention...kind of a "stolen moment" sort of thing. These are so much better than posed photos in my opinion. He looked so deep in thought and I think the black and white just added to the drama. In reality, he was fascinated by my neighbor on his riding lawn mower...probably thinking of the damage he could do with one those things. The kid is fearless.

I've made a little progress on the second sock....hard to knit with the dang headache I had so I can't wait to get back to knitting more. I know I need to get that shawl going again but "the evil that is Ravelry" is making me want to knit a Clapotis . I have some Noro Kureyon ...had it for quite a while actually...didn't know what to do with it...saw a Clapotis knitted with it and now...I WANT ONE! I think I need an intervention....Back. Away. From. The. Noro. *sigh* Icelandic guilt will not allow me to cast on..... back to the socks.

Great photos! We've finally seen the sun here, so it's less painful to see the lovely spring you are enjoying.

Hope the sinus problems clear up quickly.

Excellent. So glad to hear the antibiotics are helping.

And UNDER the trampoline. Love it.

I always prefer unposed pics too!

Ahh trampoline photos... I have a couple of Adam on the trampoline, can;t wait to get more this year. I better get to finding a new camera first huh?

Your son looks like he's having the time of his life! And you are too probably.

I was going to encourage you to finish the sock but the clapotis in Noro, well, I might have to make a road trip with my Noro to cast on with you.

I love those stolen moments shot too. It's so rare to get them though. Children seem to have a 6th sense when you pick up a camera.

I'm so glad you are finally feeling better. Guess it helps when you know what's wrong and you get the proper treatment :)

Happy knitting :)
