black and white Wednesday - a little bit of sunshine

March park 5-2
"Wherever you go, no matter what the weather,
always bring your own sunshine."

~ Anthony D'Angelo

March park 9

"In the garden my soul is sunshine."

~ unknown
March park 8


"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."

~ James Matthew Barrie (creator of Peter Pan)
Peter Pan

This is Will pretending he's Peter Pan.
He's taken an interest in the movie and I've been reading him the story.
He was using a stick for a sword before I shot these.
I love this boy's imagination very much!
March park 3

These two are my sunshine.
Always.
Their laughter and joy is contagious.
March park 7-2

Everyday I'm thankful that I've been given a second and third chance to be a parent.
And blessed to have been chosen to be their mom.
March park 6

Taken on Saturday, it was a beautiful early Spring day.
We had to get outside and get some exercise and Vitamin D.
I had found a park that we'd never explored before and I loved the light there.
We'll be back I'm sure.

Happy Spring.
If it hasn't arrived where you live yet, I'm confident it'll be there soon!
Enjoy these days.


the long road

I have to say he is the most adorable Peter Pan I've ever seen. So happy the sun is finally shining and you were able go out and enjoy the day. Looks like a beautiful park for the kids to explore.

Beautiful...I love the trail picture. And the light is definately scrumptious! Oh and hope you are still saying Happy Spring where you are at tomorrow and the snow misses you....we were forcasted to get 12-19inches and dodged the whole thing! Not one snowflake, all went south which in turn goes to you...hopefully not though. Happy Wednesday...gorgeous as always.

Hahaaaa, oh I love that shot of the two of them racing, the look on Will's face is priceless. And that shot of Will beside the tree is amazing...I love the colouring.

Oh sunshine, how I love thee! And I love the song you have playing! It made me grin. :)

Perfect day for romping in a brand newly discovered park with your adorable kiddos.

Their joy is infectious Gail. I'm happy to see the snow has disappeared (can't say the same here)and Spring is on its way.
