Spring flowers

As has become tradition for us, we headed over to Duke Gardens last weekend to grab some pictures amongst the spring beauty. It was a last minute trip, so we didn’t really get to hang out like we would have liked to, but we wanted to try and get some shots with the cherry blossom before its beautiful blooms disappeared for another year.

You can see that we have gotten progressively worse at timing the tree at peak bloom. Next year I need to remember to go earlier in April I guess!

We’ve also posed Bella with the tulips each year.

I love looking back at her growth!

We sort of ended up doing this by accident but now it has become a tradition that we have to keep up. This was also the second straight year that we went just as all of the local high school kids were there getting prom pictures taken. Such a gorgeous spot to go for some dressy photos too.
