Easter weekend photo dump.

This weekend did not go as planned. 
All week long I dreamed about going to the tulip festival on Saturday. 
Only to wake up to a drizzly dark day.
Needless to say, we didn't go and we stayed inside all day.
Although today my sister and I did get out of the house and find some beautiful tulips. Almost as good as the Tulip fest, but not quite.
 Saturday afternoon I went to the salon to get my hair trimmed and colored. I was going to do a bright red color but I didn't book enough time. So we just did a darker red. Keep in mind this picture was taken with the sun hitting my head, so it looks much more red than it actually is. I like it though.


 While taking a picture of one of the tulips I noticed that there was a bee pollinating the flower! Neat-o.

 UGH. This duck just makes me mad. Why you ask?? Because. I was at the lake and there was a lost baby goose looking for its mom. It wandered right on up to me, and I got a TON of really adorable shots of him. Lo and behold I got home and went to download my photos onto my laptop. When Sammie decided to jump on it and somehow deleted half the photos I took today:( So therefore just looking at the duck makes me furious. At least this little fella let me get really close up to him before diving in the water.
 Creepy Mallard.
 My sister and I went to a different pond later in the day, there were cute ducklings. The dang things wouldn't come close to me though, or turn their little heads! *sigh*
 I got a lot of their little backsides...
 We found a nest!


 I'm in love with all of the brightly colored almost microscopic blossoms that are popping up! 

 I love this picture. There were three beautiful trees all with different colored blossoms lined up next to one another.


 I think moss is neat.
 Hey look an ant! COOL. bahahah. I'm such a child, seriously ants impress me???
 My pup spotted me outside taking photos.
 Delicious looking fruit pizza my SIL made. Being gluten free SUCKS on holidays!
 My sister will kill me for this one. "well you should of made a cute face" <--- That's what I am saying to her, for when she reads my blog.
 Older sister and I at my parents for Easter dinner.
 My niece told me she would never talk to me again if I posted a photo of her on my blog. Whoopsies! She is also the same one that won't let me photograph her, see the smudges on the photo?? Yeah I took a picture of her through the front door. She didn't even know! I am too sneaky.
At least one of my nieces likes to be a ham in front of the camera!
Thanks for stopping by! 
I hope you had a great Easter:)

The photos are so fun. :) It looked like a fun weekend even if you couldn't go to the tulip festival. I've never been to one and tulips are definitely my favorite flower.

Lillian said...

I love the pictures. I will enjoy your pictures of the ducks because birds terrify me in person...or birdson? (Yes I have an irrational fear of birds of all feathers). The tulips are beautiful! And your little niece will one day be happy that you were sneaky about pictures! There are hardly any pictures of me for several reasons, the main one being it was expensive buying film and even more expensive getting it developed when I was a kid/teenager. (Thank God for digital cameras!).

Yes I play EQ. I don't know if that qualifies me for the coolest mom or the weirdest! Hahahaha.

Amylou said...

And that little duckies photo is too sweet!

I'm sorry the tulip fest day was gloomy...but all those flowers are BEAUTIFUL!!

Hello Again Vintage said...

Beautiful photos! Awwe..that bites that the weather put a damper on your Tulip Festival plans. But at least you were able to come home to something equally as nice.

And looking at that colorful duck always reminds me of my grandparents 'cause they used to have a stuffed animal duck sitting on top of their bed headboard.

P.S. Your new hair color looks so rad!
