"Grandma's" last day here...

My mom is leaving tomorrow (well, technically today since it is after midnight!)  I wanted to get some images of her with Hayden before she left so we had a little session out in the beautiful weather today.  I really love the sunny, hazy look of them!

Caught some yummy flare in this one ;)
More yummy flare ;)  And kid is a nail biter :-/
Isn't my mom beautiful?
Visits from family never last long enough :(

What a handsome devil ;)
Speaking of Hayden...he now can climb out of his crib even though its on the lowest setting and I removed the bumper (and the fact that he is one short dude.)

I think we will be converting this crib to the toddler bed very soon...

Also, an early birthday present arrived for me today. To say I am excited would be a complete understatement...

Thanks to some birthday money from my grandma, the (hopeful) sale of my current camera and a contribution from my hubby (thanks to our tax refund) I took an opportunity to purchase a used Nikon D300 from a pro photographer that was upgrading and got a great deal.  I am anxious to learn this new gadget as it is quite a bit different from my beginner dslr.  What a fun investment/b-day gift!  :)
