No more monkeys jumpin' on da bed!

One of Nicks favorite nursery rhymes right now....

And one of his favorite things to do.
My little monkey

And no, this shiner isn't from jumping on the bed. He got this in a fight with the table at dinner one night. We went out with some friends and he got a bit fussy. Started thrashing around and BOOM! A big, fat goose egg on the corner of his eye. This was a few days later when the blood started draining.

No do-overs

One of the things about the Hipstamatic app is that you have to compose your shots. There aren't a lot of do-overs. The app takes a minute to 'process' or 'develop' the shot. And its hard to compose. You're looking through a fake lens on the screen of the iPhone.

And then trying to chose which lens and film to use. Thats another blog post. I'm finding I like certain films best. Like the Pistil and Blanko. The Jimmy Lens is another favorite. I need to go through all of my lenses and films and do the same shot over and over using each one so I can print out a sampler.

Lens: Helga Viking
Film: Blanko
Flash: Off

These were taken on one of the first warm afternoons we've had. Warm enough to actually sit outside after school and blow bubbles.

Easter Morning

This year, he 'got it'. We talked about the Easter Bunny and how he hides the eggs. We talked about him finding the eggs and that there would be treats.

All we needed to do was tell him there was candy hidden and he figured the rest out on his own.

I'm a Hipsta

Yeah, I'm addicted to this stupid Hipstamatic. I've pretty much left the SLR at home and used this as my little point and shoot.

The normal camera on the iPhone is decent too.

Took Nick to a birthday party. In fact, he's had a party to go to almost every weekend lately. Seems every kid in his class is turning 3. In less than 2 months, he'll be three. Guess I should pick a theme and start planning. Parties don't plan themselves do they?

Ben's Birthday

(Bouncy House thing - every party has one and Nick refuses to go near it.)


(Thats Ben)

(You'd think, by looking at this picture, that someone was well behaved.....)

(He carried those balloons around most of the afternoon. You never heard me ask where my kid was.....)

(Time for the pinata. The girls had better swings than the boys!)


(This kid just exudes cool.)

Easter flashback

So, I realized I never finished with Easter. Someone 'kindly' reminded me.

So here ya go!

More Egg Dying at Gioia's house.

This is serious business in this family.

And its not just for the kids anymore!

A little bit of playing with the new puppy - Rex. Nick named him T-Rex. He was going through a dinosaur phase at the time.
Back to the eggs.
