I heart faces...May Peoples Choice

I haven't done an I heart faces challenge in a long time but since I caught some cute face photos today I thought why not.  This weeks challenge is best face photo from May.

Toddler Tuesday 5/31/11

Photographing a toddler can be difficult at best because they don't pose or stand still, they think running from the camera is the funnest game ever, if you say look at the camera they do just that...literally stare at the camera like it's going to do a magic trick, or my favorite is to try to take the camera saying "my turn".

One of my friends does a toddler Tuesday where she writes about funny things her boys say so I thought I would do a twist on that with toddler Tuesday pictures.  The good, the bad, and the ugly of photographing a toddler.  I will post all of my photos even the ones that normally would end up on the cutting room floor.  So here was today in a nutshell...or at least me following Ava around for about an hour to see what I could capture.

Memorial Day 2011

We decided we wanted to hang close to home on memorial day and avoid the traffic.  I made North Carolina pulled pork, drunken hot dogs, cucumber dill salad, baked mac and cheese, and chocolate pound cake with strawberries and whipped cream.  It was a nice quiet day but we were all excited after spending so much time out in the hot sun.  Ava enjoyed her new pool though and it really helped cool her off.

It's a wonderful life.....
