The Botanical Gardens with Grandma and Grandpa

Grandma and Grandpa (Gary's parents) came up for a visit last weekend. On Saturday we went to the Botanical Gardens, and I took a lot of great pictures. I had great intentions to get the pictures uploaded and ready to post on Sunday, after some editing with the Photoshop Elements that I got for Mother's Day. On the weekends, I usually get the week's blog posts ready to go. Instead of getting this post ready, however, I spent my posting time trying to learn how to edit one picture with Photoshop Elements. . . . Then this week I've had very little time to play on the computer, between a very heavy construction week at our house, another trip to the MEU for contractions this past Wednesday (at which point I was the lucky recipient of a terbutaline shot -- still minor drugs compared to what I was on last pregnancy), the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man & Woman of the Year Grand Finale on Thursday night (I didn't win, but did far better than I had expected), and just life. So, I finally decided to just get this post up today and learn how to use Photoshop Elements another day when I have fewer pictures to edit. Enjoy!

P.S. I'm told that it is getting harder and harder to tell the girls apart, so for reference, Piper is wearing the mostly yellow dress and Rosemary the mostly green dress.

Love the pics! My kids never wear sunglasses or hats :( Love the girls' dresses!

Thanks, Samantha! Except for Henry, they don't wear the sunglasses for long -- I just have to snap a picture quickly! What I really wish I could do is keep a bow in the girls' hair. . . . Maybe one day!

I love the photo with Piper and my looks like a Hallmark card! Cindy
