The Beauty of Nature (and Zach)

We went on a search for wildflowers...and we failed miserably. There are plenty along the side of the highway, but apparently as soon as you leave the freeway, the wildflowers shrivel up and die. The trip wasn't a total bust as we headed UP, UP, UP, UP, OVER, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN and DOWN the mountain. It was purdy.


Okay, so we saw a FEW wildflowers...from afar.





And because everyone deserves a good Zach fix, here you go.

Pre Dunk

Post (Unintentional) Dunk

Mmmmm....Prunes!


Having a bottle...and holding it all by his-self!

Goodness! I love the outdoor shots, reminds me of home for sure! :) And your boys are absolutely precious. I think I want another boy now. :)

And hey, look! I'm the first to comment. :)

Those scenery photos are beautiful. I especially love the one with the purple flowers on the mountain.

Zach is cute pre- or post-dunk. They both are!

And, yes, I'll share my wildflowers.

Rebecca said...

SO great! :) I love them all, but I think the first one is my favorite. :)

Quart said...

I think you were just trying to show off your beautiful kitchen sink and copper tiles again. Nicely done, though the pale in comparison to Zach!! He didn't look too traumatized by the dunk.

Those hills are amazing. And OF COURSE your kids are adorable.

Ohhhhh, I so totally miss that part of the world. 'Specially my Santa Ynez Valley cellar club memberships (can't ship wine to Utah, dammit). And dontcha just LOVE when the punkins can hold that bottle all by their cute little selves? FREEDOM. To blog. For 6 ounces worth, anyway. ;-)

Totally awesome, all of them!!

Sarah @ Ordinary Days said...

Beautiful pictures!!

Angie said...

OK so Zach looks OH SO MUCH like you as he grows.

And the mountain shots - make me ALMOST hate you. Wow. I would go for Sunday drives every week if that were in my backyard. I just spent 7 hours driving through the rolling farmlands of Iowas where, not kidding, everything across the entire state was about 4 different shades of tan. Kill me now.

KEEP BELIEVING

You outdoor photo shots are beautiful, but those children are the best. Obviously, you are taking blackmail shots in the tub. They'll look great on his table at senior night.

I love the pic of your dog in the side mirror! And I have to say that your little baby boy has one of the most beautiful pair of eyes I have ever seen!!!

A sink bath! So cute. I also can't tell you how many pictures I have of my boys asleep grasping a hot wheels car.

JCK said...

Darling pictures of the boys. The wildflowers are everywhere now, aren't they? Well...everywhere EXCEPT where you're going.

Lulu said...

Oh dear heavens, Zach is just the cutest little bundle of cute! I used to give Gus baths in the kitchen sink, too! I doubt that he would fit now. He's 6 foot. And that would just be weird anyway.

Oh, the lovely wildflowers! Are you sure that you weren't in France? Those pix are awesome!
