Botanical Gardens!

Just a little help needed!


Taking time to rest on chairs set aside for a wedding.

Breaking by the pond.


I thought she was pretty!

Learning about so many plants!

Having fun with all the new discoveries!
Pretty waterfall!

Spotting all the goldfish!

Lovin' on Nana every chance he got!

Although breathtakingly beautiful, it was also breathtakingly humid in there!

This is the life!

To learn of my obsession over this banana bloom, visit my photography blog!

In the mist!

Getting a cool drink of water!

Exiting the humidity chamber!

Ending it all with a kiss!

Cutting off the curls!


Not sure about what is taking place.

Getting the hang of things.

Staying busy picking his fallen curls.

Tolerating the procedure.

Gumdrops to the rescue!

Distracted by cartoons.

Loving the gumdrops!

Not knowing healthy limits!

Seeing himself for the 1st time!
He loves it!

I was NOT prepared for the change that would take place in cutting all of Charlie's curls off. He looks completey different to me. I informed his father that the curls were coming back and were going to stay until Charlie could tell me otherwise. Some things are just the right of the mom!

I love this child!

My little helper loves to sit on the washing machine and help me with laundry. After all the clothes are in and the wash begins, he has a blast sitting on top and looking around. These are the days!!!

I love it when I FINALLY figure IT out!

I called on help from another blogger out there. You see this watermark here? Notice the faded wide strip? Well, I used to want that so bad. With a helpful hint and that ah ha moment, I figured it out! I knew how to make a watermark, but do you know what was actually the most difficult part for me to learn? What kind of file to save it as!!! Knowing that JPEG does not save in layers, I deligently made watermark after watermark after watermark. When it came time to "stamp" my watermark on that oh so desired faded strip, I could not for the life of me figure out why in the world my watermark was stamping a white background on there! Then it happened. I said to myself, "Self...if jpeg doesn't save in layers, it is going to combine this image. Self...when it combines this image, I lose the transparent layer." I sat back, cracked my nuckles and made rubber on my keyboard designing all kinds of watermarks with transparent backgrounds...only this time...I saved them as Photoshop files!

Sigh...I really do have a brain.
