We’ve been having a fun and busy spring! It’s been a while since I made a real update – I have been so busy with work, then Zachary caught a cold and then I caught his cold! I thought I would post a few snapshots (taken with the Canon Powershot G11) to illustrate what we have been up to.
Last month Zachary was on Spring Break from school, so we spent a week, just the two of us, spending time together. We also met up with Aunt Amy for lunch, which Zachary was very thrilled about, and actually remembered to take a picture:
That week, Adrian started working in the new Táve office in Ft. Lauderdale, and I took Zachary to see the office, and we also got lunch together. Táve Studio Manager is the product that Adrian and his business partner Jason created a few years ago to help photographers manage their businesses better. It is a valuable part of my daily life and helps me run my business and keep track of my clients and photo shoots. Adrian used to work at home in the same room as me, but as you can imagine, that isn’t the easiest thing to do, so he and Jason got their own office last month. We are all so much more productive now!
I love this picture of Adrian and Zachary at the office. Zachary was so used to having his daddy home all the time, so he was truly excited to find out where Adrian was going each day. Now when I tell him that daddy is at work, he knows what work is!
We’ve also been dedicating a day each weekend to spending time together as a family. Last weekend we filled up the baby pool and all three of us had a good time splashing around. Zachary adores being in the water as well as running around outdoors in the backyard (and saying hi to the doggies a few houses down as you can see). I think this is going to be a very fun-filled summer and I’m sure we’ll be going to the pool frequently as well as using the baby pool!
I swear it’s been so hot out lately that it feels like summer has already arrived here in South Florida. Just as a reminder to all of my Florida friends (and those of you who also live in hot, sunny places), don’t forget to use sunscreen when you and your little ones go outside. I really like the spray on sunscreens (Target has a good one with the Up & Up brand), but I usually use a high-SPF lotion on Zachary’s face, back, and shoulders when we are playing in the pool. You can never be too careful!
We have a lot of fun things to look forward to this spring. Next week we are celebrating the Passover dinner (aka- the Seder) which will be at my parents’ house. A few weeks later we will be celebrating Adrian’s 32nd birthday, and also in May I’m shooting my first destination wedding of 2011 in The Keys. So excited about getting away for a few days, possibly relaxing and reading a book, and capturing some awesome images.
Before it gets too hot in the next month and a half, I’m also hoping to check out a few more South Florida Farmers Markets with Zachary. I love going to those since they always have so many interesting things to see and taste.
What are your plans for this spring? What are you looking forward to the most?
