Capture The Moments in April

Rainy Days

April came and went in a flurry of activity! It was easily the fastest month of the year. I sure hope time slows down just a bit for the rest of the year! Even though time went by so quickly that I could barely process what was even happening, I did manage to capture the special moments!

I take thousands of pictures each month. Even after I narrow them down by deleting the pictures I don't like, I still end up with over a thousand pictures in my monthly folder! Most of the pictures never make it to my blog or social media, but I do love to share my favorite moments from each month.

Organizing all those pictures for a monthly blog post can be overwhelming, so this will be the last time I plan on sharing a full month of favorite photos. Instead, I will be breaking it down into weekly document life posts from here on out!

Here's a glimpse at my favorite April moments...

  1. You had such a busy month! I love the rain coat pictures and the pictures of Liam in the woods!

    1. It was a busy month! Thank you so much...the rain coat pictures are my favorite!

  2. I just love these posts that you do! I used to do something similar and post random pictures that never made it to the blog each month and this makes me want to do it again!

    1. Thank you! There's just so much that never makes it to the blog. I want to try to be better about sharing the ordinary posts, too!

  3. Aw, lots of great photos last month. I really need to take more photos. I used to be better at it!! I love your kid's outfits, I have to say. :)


  4. Your family photos are all so beautiful - you are great at taking photos and they are always so much fun. They are all great but the top one is amazing - the colours are so great - it looks straight out of a magazine! A brilliant collection of photos for all of your family to treasure for years to come!

    1. Thank you so much, Joanne! I love how those ones turned out!

  5. You summed up April perfectly--rain showers, some cold days, and then some "hints of summer." I'll admit I like the "summer" pictures the best. Of course, who can resist those puppy pictures? Happiness abounds in your family!


I love hearing from you! Let's chat!!!
