Because, if I'm going to embrace a weekly theme, can you really see me doing Wordless Wednesdays?
Some things I'm loving today:
My boy's birthday is today. I keep being afraid that I'll be done with the fun-loving kid years, but my kid? He's some kind of awesome. Growing up like you wouldn't believe, but all kid.
Cake baking. Not cake-baking-aftermath cleanup, though.
A boy calls 911 to save his family -- from gunmen. I've heard the kid-calls-an-ambulance stories, and those kids heroes. But this? Whoa. Just listen to it, and see if you don't get choked up. That kid stepped up.
I just remembered Buzzard Day is coming. I'm ridiculously happy about it.
Wildflower season is here. Expect flower closeups, flowers-from-below-with-sky, flower-with-smiling-kid-bokeh, and many other floral clichés in the coming days.
The Preserve rocks. Well, it always does, but it's golden right now. Literally. Also, the birds are awesome. My son and I ran into a fellow the other day who was new to both the area and to photography. He grabbed a shot of the black-crowned night heron we were all ogling before running on, saying "I want to get a shot of each bird in here." I didn't have the heart to tell him. Still, that's the cool thing about places like that. You never really run out of material.
Good stuff. Happy Thursday, y'all.
