April 30: To blow or not to blow.
What do you think she did?
May 1: Bridals at Memory Grove.
This was a portion of the park that I hadn't been to before. Hidden back up in the woods, is this long stone stairway, with what looks like a sacrificial altar at the top, framed by trees.
The scene just begged me to drop a bride into it.
Bridals are some of my favorite pictures to take -- I love the radiance of the white dress against the more earthy background colors, and the contrast of the elegance and the rugged.
May 2: On the one hand, this cracks me up.
On the other, it makes me a little misty.
This is what compromise looks like.
(Incidentally, Matt and Emma are wearing MY inline skates -- men's size 10 -- which is why it comes up to Emma's knee)
May 3: Obligatory weekly flower shot.
The tulips are beginning to bloom! We have pinks, purples, whites and oranges, with dark blues coming soon.
May 4: Obligatory late night shot.
Have you tried Izze? It's carbonated fruit juice. I love the grapefruit, clementine and blackberry drinks.
I wasn't sure I could drink this new Blueberry flavor.
It turns out I did just fine.
May 5: I use a lot of lotion.
A LOT OF LOTION.
Consequently, I have to buy lotion quite regularly. Today I saw something I've never seen before.
Since I am a man (in case you were wondering -- as, evidently, some of you do...), I thought it was my "Y" Chromosomal Duty to try man lotion.
So I did.
Who decided that a man wants to smell like this?
It's so musky! And it's SO strong, and abiding. I only put a small amount on my hands, and I could smell it for hours. It curled my eyebrows. It was so potent, my wife made me go buy some "normal" lotion, or she wouldn't let me back in the house, after I took the lotion out for a rugged, manly photo shoot, amongst the dirt and rocks.
So, I've got a giant bottle of man lotion going cheap.
May 6: Running late, and need to get this post up.
Here's a shot of four of my favorite kids.
