you capture: spring

Our Spring sprang a few weeks ago.  (Remember the lilac incident?  Yeah.  Me too.  Lesson SO LEARNED.)

Our flowered trees have dropped their blooms and our yard is full of dusty dandelions.

Clark calls them that, dusty dandelions.

He likes to make up words and phrases.  One of his favorites is "amn't"-- a contraction of "am" and "not".

"I amn't gonna come in and eat dinner right now, I'm gonna play outside with the dusty dandelions some more."

These photos were all taken exactly ONE WEEK post grass-mowing.

Dusty dandelions grow fast.

Skip on over to Beth's place for (probably much brighter flowery-er Springier than my own) Spring photos galore.

  6. Adorable pictures. And, I confess, I too use amn't. One of the more fun contractions :)

  10. Loving those kids. Seriously, they both look like you could just pick them up and never stop squeezing them. Though I'm sure Clark would have things to say about that.

  16. That second photo of Alice frolicking is SO FUN.

    {I've always wanted to use the word frolic, but it rarely "fits" - but that photo? It is the very definition of frolicking, don't you think?} :)
