Alex and I both took this week off and had a "stay-cation" here in Indy. On Sunday after nap, we got ice cream and then went to the park to play. I got some cute pictures of the boys playing in a tree that I love.
Monday we went to the zoo, since Alex doesn't usually get to go with us. (And he wanted to check out the new orangutan exhibit.) It was a nice, not too crowded day, and I took a few pictures of animals for fun. The baby elephant was playing in and out of the water and was SO cute!
Tuesday, I got to take 3 month pictures of my neighbor's cutie, Brayden. He was not so into smiling for the camera, but I felt like I got a few cute ones his mom will like! :)
Wednesday we went down to have dinner with Alex's parents and sister at Pizza King. They have a train that goes all through the restaurant that carries your drinks to your table. Needless to say, the boys were extremely thrilled that a train brought them their chocolate milk!! We will be back for sure.
Thursday we cooked out with my family. I wanted the boys to get to try sparklers, but it really doesn't get dark enough until so late in the evening. We tried a few, and I did get this cute shot! After the boys went to bed, Alex helped me do some sparkler photos. That is his American flag interpretation!
Friday was the 4th, and we had a fun day. We cooked out with some friends, but I was really excited to try and get photos of the fireworks. My photography group had given me some pointers, so I was really hoping to get some cool shots. I'm really happy with them for sure! And the boys loved watching them. This was the first year they stayed up, and they really did great.
Saturday I think we took it easy. But my favorite flowers were starting to bloom! They get so tall in front of our front window, so I love watching them get taller and taller until they finally bloom. Bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds all love these flowers, so it gives us quite a show to watch out the window.
