i heart faces “dramatic black and white”


I think it’s safe to say that superhero mania has taken over our lives. Spiderman is still number one at our house, but Batman is slowly making his appearance.

I’m so glad I snapped this photo at the park this weekend.  Little Man was practicing his “super” skills on the slide once again.  Who said 2 was such a terrible age?  I happen to think it’s loads of fun (ok…most of the time)!  

 Now head on over to i heart faces to see some great dramatic shots.


When I say “cheese,”  Little Man does this:

It’s sort of a smile…I guess 🙂

As you can tell, superheroes have taken over our lives.  Little man doesn’t really know who Spiderman and Batman are…but he knows they are “super” and that they like to help people and that one’s his favorite thing…a spider.  What more could you ask for?  He even has a blue cape hanging in his room (handmade by my mom!) that he uses for when it’s time for being Super R.  He makes me lift him up and fly him around the house. Ah, to be 2 again!

i heart faces-“angles” photo challenge

This week is all about focusing on angles, definitely something I need to work on!

One of Little Man’s most favorite places to play is our local park.  He can’t get enough of the slides…I captured this shot as he tumbled down one, totally out of control.  He was laughing all the way and then just kind of hung out at the bottom of the slide trying to let the dizzy wear off.  I’m not very good at taking shots from above, mainly because Little Man doesn’t hold still long enough to let me try!  I guess I just got lucky on this day 🙂  Now head on over to  i heart faces to see some more great angles.

Dry Tortugas National Park

Touring the beautiful fort, hiking, enjoying the beach, strolling the moat wall

snorkeling along the moat wall was nice

Fun boat ride filled with visits to the captain, happy hour and naps

Almost 70 miles (112.9 km) west of Key West lies a cluster of seven islands, composed of coral reefs and sand, called the Dry Tortugas. Along with the surrounding shoals and waters, they make up Dry Tortugas National Park. The area is known for its famous bird and marine life, its legends of pirates and sunken gold, and its military past. 

Check it out here if you would like to learn more about this very cool place. We really enjoyed our visit and hope to go back again someday soon.

I heart faces-“bundled up” photo challenge

I had to laugh when I posted this picture….we spent the last week in tropical paradise for a spring break get-away and I’ve been sorting through tons of warm weather beach shots.  Editing this picture was a big change!

A little bit of snow is a big deal to us here in the South.  We may have only been covered in a few inches on this day, but we made the most of it!!  It’s been unusually cold and snowy here which has made for a fun winter…but I’m so looking forward to spring–especially after our trip!

Now head on over to i heart faces to see more great entries!


On a tiny island 70 miles off the coast of Key West…more to come…

Oh!  And *IT* came yesterday in the mail, so all is well on the adoption front.  Yipee!
