Photos of the Week: May 1st

I felt like I did awful on my I Spy photo challenges this week and yet when it came time to pull this post together I had a photo for every prompt and only 1 of the photos was taken using my cell phone!  



Backyard (Spring) I finally stood in the doorway to our deck and just snapped a photo in the rain of our backyard.  



Working it My husband and I spent Sunday working on our countertop; we kept re-working it until we had a design we liked. 



Together Alec worked at putting together a peanut butter pie for his brother's birthday. 



Light The perfect place to sit and enjoy the sun-light




Your Choice We had a heron on our beach and I grabbed my camera just as he took flight.

    1. I can't wait to see it against the cabinets. Of course we still have a lot of work to do before it's done but I am getting excited.

    1. I couldn't believe I captured him the corner of the photo like that. I thought for sure I had missed the heron... again.

    1. It is very tempting to just sit on the deck/ patio and not leave once the nice weather hits. We compensate by inviting lots of people over though.
