Playin' with my camera...


I was granted permission by Raffa's Mom to post this pic of him. I am joyfully surrounded by children most of the time and dearly love to take pictures of them. So when one turns out wicked nice - I'm excited. It was also his birthday yesterday - he's 5 years old. At school yesterday he brought cupcakes for sharing and I presented his with a candle in his. That evening he had his cake with 5 candles, he said...
"Miss Sarah gave me one candle this morning, and I have five tonight... that must mean I'm six." Cracked me up - love these guys.



I finally managed to take a picture of my Lucy Lu that I liked. She is a very wiggly girl and hard to get a good shot. I discovered my telephoto lens - whoo hoo. Isn't she beautiful!!!



And.... drum roll... it is finally Spring in N. Idaho - YAYAYAYAAY!!



Ok just one more.... a pic of Jim - well sorta - he said I could share this one of him in his dry suit - giggle - he is really cute under all that... Have a wonderful day everyone!!

PS - Don't forget to enter my giveaway!!

Great pictures Sarah. Little Raffa is a total doll. And how great is that - I must be 6!!! Intersting how little ones can't wait to get old, and add years to their current age, while adults like to shave years off!
Happy Birthday to beautiful Raffa!
