Play Time With Auntie Genny

Yesterday afternoon Gennifer called to see if Noah and I wanted to come over for some outside play time. Of course we jumped in the car and headed straight over, goldfish crackers and camera in hand. Yes Spring is springing, and we sat out back and enjoyed all of Jake's hard work in the yard. He has planted new flowers, laid new bark in the flower beds, put in a new water fountain, and recently had their patio cover redone, complete with electric fan and lights and music! It was delightful.
This first picture is of Gennifer demonstrating how she now does her grocery shopping with a baby and toddler in tow. She has MAD shopping skills, wouldn't you say? Noah got in on the action to show how he does it.
Hannah showed Gamma her finger painting she did.

Claire Bear just happy to "be."

Hannah Bug about to smell the flowers. And pretty little Claire Bear against the pretty blue sky.
Then I took this same picture and with Picassa, added some color saturation, and this one below is the result. And with the bottom one, took a slightly different picture, and softened it. I LOVE the way it turned out.

Cute pictures! That Claire is just a doll baby! So cute. What a nice afternoon. By the looks of it, Genn's a pretty quick shopper! I can relate! Except for I use a larger shopping cart. ;)

You did some fun things with that photo. I just love Picassa. Unfortunately, somehow mine got deleted off the computer and I haven't been able to re-upload the program. I have to have someone help me who knows what they're doing.

Cute pics Mom. Thanks for coming over for a bit.

Those pics of Claire look great. I need to learn how to do all that to my photos.

Cute pics. I bet Genn got one of those shopping carts before she could walk. I say that because she has shopping perfected. She is the perfect shopper.
