Joys of Spring

Yesterday, my friend Jen, hosted a wonderful tea party at her house.  There was 8 very excited little girls in attendance.  

Our party began with a delicious lunch of creamy rice and chicken soup, peanut butter and jelly or chicken salad sandwiches, cheese and crackers, and chocolate covered strawberries.  The girls sat there for about an hour and then the wiggles over came them.  They were anxious to go outside and get started with an Easter egg hunt and to show off their tricks on the trampoline.

The awesome weather provided great picture taking opportunities.  Here are a few from our day.

As the yearbook photographer for the girls school, I have the privilege to bring in my camera any day of the week and snap away (unless I’m specifically told not to photograph a student because of confidentiality issues).

I’m known as Gabby’s Mom, Yearbook Lady, and sometimes Mrs. Ozsvath.  When they see me coming with my camera, they make sure they are seen.  In an instant, they go from sitting quietly to making silly faces or a striking a pose.  I usually cause “some” disruption wherever I go...and I love it!  The kids love it!!

Today, I took some candid shots of some very happy kids outside on the playground.  They have been working hard all week on Pennsylvania School System of Assesments (PSSA) and finally, they finished for the week.  Their teachers rewarded them with some “free” time outside.

This is guy LOVES reptiles.  He has been over to our house to see the snakes and fish and was thrilled to handle just about every snake he was shown.  When I see him at school he makes sure to tell me about reptile ads on Craigslist or sales at Petco that I might be interested in.  I just nod and say “Wow” a lot.  He’s a great kid with a huge you can tell.

Seahorse Championships

I decided it was time to take pictures of my two little swimmers and what better time than at the Championships.

Here’s Gabby doing the Butterfly stroke.  She has come a long way with perfecting this stroke.  So proud of how hard she’s worked.

Swimmer’s take your mark...


And then, there’s my little tadpole, Holly.  She is getting the hang of rotating her arms over head and putting her face in the water.

More great news...the Seahorse Swim Team has asked me to be the official Seahorse Photographer!!  Super excited but very nervous.  I have a lot of work to do if they want my pictures on their website.

Great way to end the season.

Mole or Vole?

Did you know there is a cute little critter very similar to a mouse called a Vole? A vole is a small rodent resembling a mouse but with a stouter body, a shorter, hairy tail, a slightly rounder head, smaller ears and eyes, and differently formed molars.  To be sure you have a Vole and not a mouse, use a magnifying glass, especially when you're examining his molars.

Another varmint commonly mistaken for a Vole is the Mole.  Mole's are carnivorous and eat worms, grubs, and insects.  Voles on the other hand are herbivores and will gnaw at the base of a tree or shrub especially in the winter.

What do you think this little guy is?  Mole or Vole?

Letting Her Hair Down

The other night, Gabby and I got to hang out with each other.  We don’t get to do that often, so I embraced the moment and grabbed my camera to enjoy Gabby while she “let her hair down”.

Gabby is very reserved, shy, timid, and quiet.  We call it her “business mode”.  Once in awhile though, you’ll catch her being silly, funny, charismatic, and down right cute.

Here are a few pictures of the “Silly” Gabby not many people get to see.

She acted the part of “an old lady” very well.  She definitely needs to join the Drama Club.

She could be a comedian one day.

Her personality shines when she has her Daddy by her side.

But, when Gabby is feeling the most comfortable, she let’s her hair down and smiles her biggest smile.

Intangible blessings, are the ones to hold near and dear to your heart.

Darling Darla

Our new pup has brought us countless hours of laughter and memories we will cherish for a lifetime.  She’s cute, soft, cuddly, and full of poop puppy dodo that requires quick reflexes and lightening fast jaunts to the yard.

Here are a few photos of Darla with her big brother, Nyati.

Love those green eyes and little red button nose

C’mon...let’s play!!

Man down!
