Family in Spring

Remember those Easter dresses? I've decided they were made for outdoor pictures. Especially when it's a day the air is clear, the sky is blue, the sun is warm, and life is just good.

A friend met us at the botanical garden on campus to take the family pictures, then we stayed later to get a few of the girls. It worked well, because Ryan took some family pictures for him the day before. :) Spring is the time to capture them for sure!

Especially since both the girls and the flowers are in such bloom :)

We are so blessed to be just a 15 minute bike ride from such beauty!

 We had to take a few running breaks for the squirmy toddler ;)

 On with the aprons! And do you know how hard it is to get both girls to look at the camera at the same time? A squeaky book toy helped with Ellie!

 Told Hadassah to put her arm around Ellie for a picture, and she just started kissing her over and over. She truly does love her sister, and it melts my heart...

 Sweet sister smiles

 Seriously, does it get any better? And I've decided toddler-baby pictures are so much easier to capture when the baby can almost sit up on her own!

 I have my arms full...

They're full of love.

 This stone was pretty convenient - allowed for a single portrait of Ellie while the apron hid my hands holding her from the back.

 The essence of little girl-ness :)

Dassah is never long parted from a stick of some sort!

Ryan and his little girls :) Dassah was done with pictures and Ellie was due for a nap, but the sweetness comes through. He's an amazing Daddy.

All loaded on the bike and ready to go! Somewhat of a pain to get in the elevator, but it allows me to go places with both girls that I'd almost never go by walking, so it's a blessing! And I'd forgotten how fun it is to ride a bike...
