Spring Lovin'

We are so fortunate to have The Biltmore Estate almost in our backyard and have a season pass. As you know we have really used our passes. I highly recommend getting a pass, especially if you have children. A lot of the times you can find a discounted pass through Mast General Store or even a passholder. My in-laws recently got a year pass and I met them there the other day as the Tulips were in peak bloom. It really is a site to be seen.
The picture on the right is my favorite picture of the tulips I took. It looks as if this is one tulip but it is actually two. What I like so much about these photographs is that I shot in the middle of the day with bright sun. A pretty tough time to photograph. I shot into the sun which gave a warm glow around the girls. I also like that you might not actually be able to tell that I am at the Biltmore and with all those beautiful flowers but the colors seem to still seep into the photographs.























No I did not have a third child that is just BellaRose's creepy baby that had to come to Biltmore with us.

Rosey wants to take pictures with Hollings, but when I put Hollings beside her she just clotheslines her. Poor Little!



Hollings is a walker, she still loves to crawl, but when she walks it is like Frankenstein. Pretty cute and funny. We have taken to calling her Frank lately.

I love how you talk about the lighting and the beautful tulips...and then you have hysterical captions for each picture. Honestly, I was laughing out loud.

Gorgeous pictures! They make me want to be in those pictures right now...well all your pictures do that. Especially ones of those beautiful girls of yours. And yes, I wondered if I missed the walking post too? Oh and my Mom's horse will be at the Blowing Rock Stables all summer and I will be up there many weekends with the kids. Please come, and Secret would love for you to ride her!
