SpRiNg break...

Wow what a blog slacker I have been!  Well like people gets in the way, right?
The kids have been finishing up school before break, I was trying to get stuff straight at work and well the list goes on and on.  School oh school....Ansley has the CRCT next week...boy will we ALL be glad when that is over!  Sarah is like a learning sponge in pre-k this year and amazes us every day with new stuff!
Jake and I hit up Universal Studios-Orlando and had a blast!  We visited our cousin Russell and went to Hogwarts!  Yes, it was awesome!  :) 
I have been trying to participate in several photography challenges which I love doing but they can be time consuming, so that's just one more thing to do.  Check out some of mine and Ansley's stuff on my Flickr account.  Ansley has been playing along with me and her stuff is on there too!  Enjoy! 
We have been doing the My Four Hens Photography and Paint the Moon Photography photo challenges along with Rock the Shot Monthly Contest.
This week we have LOTS planned and I can't wait to start my big project.  I am going to refinish my kitchen table.  I can not wait and hope that it turns out amazing as it is in my head!  Jake said he will make me some chairs that I found on an awesome web-site that my sister turned me onto.... Ana White is an amazing wood builder person...and the chairs that she has will save us a bundle!  I can NOT wait and pictures will follow.
Can not believe Spring is finally here!!!  Hooray!

March Photo Challenge {Spring!}

Azaleas in the Spring

This azalea bush in my yard absolutely screams Spring!  They bloomed so early this year since we had such a mild Winter here in the South.  I used a macro filter for the first time to capture this picture.  This was not an easy task since I had to use my camera on manual mode....not easy.  But I got the shot and hopefully with practice will get better with macro lenses!  Happy Spring friends!!
This is my submission for the March contest!
