 Busy life, dirt, and some photographs to sweeten the deal

My mind is spinning with the busyness of this summer - .... too much to organize into a post right now.

I'm truly starting to embrace this whole "boy mom" thing. This past weekend was filled with putting worms on hooks, taking fish off from hooks, dirt, camping, more dirt, bike rides, Lake Michigan, stress, love, dirt, a family reunion, sand, good food, not much sleep, and probably some more dirt. If you have boys you know that dirt and boys is a package deal.

So, while I go chase down some boys and sweep up the dirt that is settling behind them - I'll just leave you with some eye candy of pure sweetness (although some day the sweetness will automatically be mingled with dirt).

Yesterday I had the privilege of photographing my friend Kristin and her baby boy Caleb. He's pretty much too adorable for words - so here ya go:

Oooh, he's precious!

I hear you on the busyness -- too much going on for me to organize my thoughts...maybe I'll be back to blogging regularly this fall (because, you know it will be so much LESS busy after I birth another child ;)

definitely hear you on the busyness...

was thinking of you this weekend...and your four boys...my friend has two boys and watching her 2 year old run around made me realize JUST how different boys and girls really are! :) dirt, bugs, fish....you know, all the stuff that makes my girls scream!

and these pics...WOW!

I thought I'd be the mom that would break up the boys and dirt relationship. I'd see dirty boys and think...that won't be us. Wow, I was SO wrong. Are they magnetic to each other? It's truly crazy!

Your pictures are so precious! What a cute little boy...who hasn't found the dirt yet! :)
