Saturday Snapshots, Splish-Splashing and Smiling #Saturdaysnapshots #Saturdaysnapshotswithmissnelson

I am having a blast snapping photos of my boys!
If they ever complain that they had a boring summer, I have pictures to prove them wrong! Ha!

Hopefully you are not getting bored with my snapshots of my boys, but if you are, have  no fear. There are other great snapshots to adore at Run! Miss Nelson Got the Camera.
Ok, so to start this week's roundup of snapshots I have a picture of our sweet rescue dog, Bandit. He is kind and patient with the boys, but barks like crazy at strangers and neighbors. He is trying to protect us and is still skid-dish of people not living in our home.
It is tough to get great photos of Bandit since he is a little scared of the camera. Guess he was never photographed by the previous (neglectful) owner. 
While we were swimming, the boys paused to admire the airplane in the sky. In a "Treasure Island" manner they were pointing and telling me, "The plane, the plane!" That included the big kid in the crew! See if you can find the airplane in this photo. 
Shortly after snapping this photo the sky turned totally black, I wish I would have captured a picture to show you a before and after. We had intense lightning, thunder, and rain about 40 minutes after this moment was captured. 
Alright, on to my favorite models, my boys. 
I was really excited that all 3 were happy and allowed me to capture them in their play. 
Can't you hear him saying, "Hi, Mom!"?
Of course, there was lots of jumping and cannonballs. 

Sean had a little wreck on his scooter this week, I hate the scrapes, but I love how this photo will remind of us his tough days when he forgot to apply the brake! Boy scars!
Notice, how eloquently he is spitting out the water? 
We were alone at the pool this afternoon, so the boys dominated the slide and worked on flips, tricks, and trains! 

Love the emotions I captured in that picture. They are definitely related! 

A great time was had by all! I really wish I had my timer with me, it would have been fun to be a part of the slide action! 
It was fun to splash, snap, and smile! I am thankful to have these snapshots as reminders to the fun we are having, since time flies so fast! 


  1. Keep those photos of your boys coming!! You are having such a great summer it looks like, and pulling out the pictures when it's time to go back to school will be so much fun. Your dog is so sweet looking. Our Ellie does the same and barks like crazy when strangers are around. Amazing how they want to protect those that they love! Can't wait to see what you do next week.

  3. You captured some wonderful action shots of the boys! I gave up trying to find the plane and then scrolled back up and it was as obvious as can be!

  4. Loving all these water shots. These are so fun.

  5. You must frame the first one of Daddy and the boys!!! That is a GREAT one! You are really, really making me want to purchase a camera still. I'm going to do it before the summer is over. You did another amazing job this week capturing the fun and smiles. XO
