24/365 Birthdays and Bathtubs

First, I want to thank everyone for their help yesterday regarding noise. I will try over exposing a little bit and see what that does. 

Also, I am sure ya'll have noticed, but I am a rule breaker when it comes to the 365 project. I usually post my daily picture from the day before. I get most of my computer time in, during the morning hours, and then I try to spend my few evening hours, after my kids go down, with my husband. Or I am just to pooped by then to do anything on my desktop. I really need a laptop. Anyways... today is my oldest son's birthday, so I am sure I will have tons of pictures to post tomorrow, but I did want to post a little picture from 6 yrs ago because I am a little emotional today. :)

6 years ago today, I became a mother. Here is my oldest son, Anden. 


Edited to add:  My husband just took Anden to school, and when the teacher opened the car door, Anden jumped out of the car, threw up his hands and yelled, "THE BIRTHDAY BOY IS HERE!" over and over until he went into the school. A teacher had to run after him because he forgot his book bag. I think someone is excited! He had everyone cracking up outside. My husband said that was one of the funniest things he has ever seen. LOL!
 
Now on to today's picture. This was taken last night at bath time. I know my days are numbered with having all 3 in the bath, but they always have so much fun playing together.

Happy mother's day to you, Keara!

The bath picture is really pretty, and it's great as a b&w.

Trisha said...

Ha! Love this. Nice b&w too!

I love that you stepped back and took the whole scene in. One thing I notice with my photography is I always want to get in close, but forget that there is a lot more of the story to tell by stepping back just a little bit. Nice job.
