January 21, 22, 23 and 24 (phew!)

It was another cold day so we headed to the mall for a diversion. Declan got his haircut, grandma and grandpa met us for lunch at Johnny Rockets (hence the hat) and we went to the play area. Great way to burn off some pre-schooler energy!

Brendan was getting his bath with his daddy and I couldn't resist taking a few pics. Just a wet, happy baby!
Isn't the snowman great? My mother-in-law built it with Declan - she rocks! He had was the first "warm" day in a while here so we took advantage and got outside - hooray!

And another water pic - this time of Declan at his swimming lesson. We go to a great indoor pool that has water temps in the nineties all winter - it is perfect for little kids - they tend to get cold so fast in the water otherwise! I lvoe the water splashing up. I wish I had a better telephoto lens for my XTI - any suggestions?!?

Gorgeous photos, I love all the color in the pool one! I wish I had a good suggestion for a lense but you do an amazing job with what ya have!

Wonderful pics! Looks like a great time at the mall and it's great they have a play area.

Such a cute little baby boy taking a bath - love the smile on his face!

You've got a wonderful Mother-in-law that will building snowmen with your kids! Wonderful pic and great snowman!

I love the swimming lesson pic, it turned out really good! The colors are fantastic.

I only have a P&S, so couldn't give you any recommendations on a lense.

Have a great weekend!

Love the pics and processing. I actually have a Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G, I should have picked 2.8 instead. Try to rent and see what's best for you, sweetie.

These are a few of my favorite things...
