Loving My New Toy

I LOVE my new toy....LOVE IT!!!! Spring has sprung here in the south and it was the perfect day to play with my new toy. We headed for NB and one of the most beautiful parks I have ever visited. It was a gorgeous day...just wonderful. I shot over 400 pictures. I am still in auto mode, trying to focus on the "law of thirds" today. I think I got some pretty good shots, and can't wait to fly solo with the settings.

Here are few samplings....



Check out the drop of water...man....love it! I like water fowl too by the way.


Isn't she a beauty.



I love this picture...love it.




Yeah...she's a beauty too...my Grace.

Sweet baby tootsies.


Oh my goodness...have you ever seen such cuteness?


See...it was HOT today....



My son, my oldest, my love.



Joe cool Noah...what a handsome guy.



See spring has come.

How cool is this leaf? Honestly God is so amazingly creative.
I Love Him :)



Sweet doe eyed baby face, smacking her lips on a snickerdoodle.

Melissa I want to tell you that we woke up to -48 degrees this morning with the windchill. Your sweaty child gives me hope. ;-)

Melissa, thanks for your comment. I am sorry about your dad. You are right, though we all experience different situations, God uses those to draw us to him and let us know that he is God and is our daddy. Blessing and rest to you. Thanks so much for your cyber friendship. :) Melissa
