FFF-Spring Has Sprung!

It's Favorite Foto Friday! We have been spending a lot of time outside because spring has definitely sprung. Colter loves going on long walks in his stroller and looking around outside, but he's not sure what to think if I try to get him to touch anything. He's scared of grass! He also clings to me tightly if I bring him close to a tree.

Here he is when a branch from a bush was blown into his space. When the branch brushed the back of his head, his mouth dropped open, and he quickly backed away! Pretty amusing.

Now he is refusing to even acknowledge that I've got the camera. He's not going to look at me and smile! I abandoned him in the evil grass.
He's starting to look more concerned. Maybe grass really is scary.

Yep it's scary! Time to put the camera away. No smiles for this photo shoot!
Some subjects are more cooperative. Look at this gorgeous plum tree!And this lone tulip!I love red bud trees.
Everything is so pretty in the spring!
Even the despised dandelions are pretty! I'm sorry, John. I know you've suffered greatly in your battle with the Dandelions of our Yard, but I kinda like them. They're spunky. I hope you can forgive me for taking this puffball's picture instead of ripping it from it's roots, dousing it with gasoline, and setting it ablaze.
To see more spring has spring picture, head over to Kiss the Frog 4 Me!

LOL! Sophie did not like grass either as a baby. Colter is such a cutie!

Awe - mean old mommy *j/k*

I love the pics of the dandelion, I've always thought they are kinda pretty too - and blowing them, that's the best, just don't tell the hubbies because you know that just makes it worse! (or more fun because well you get more puff balls)

Oh I remeber Jaden's first introduction to grass - same result ... He is too cute and I could just kiss those cheeks of his! Thanks for sharing - you take great pictures!

Have a great weekend!

He is soooooo CUTE! I love your pictures too! The color is great on the flower pics.

A couple of days ago F brought home a HUGE dandelion that he picked on his walk home from school. When I opened the door for him he had it in his hand and proudly said "Look at this big dandelion mom!". My response: "Yes. It's lovely but it needs to be outside." The words no sooner left my lips when a big gust of wind blew through the front door and hundreds of dandelion spawn fluttered through my foyer. When I was little we used to make a wish before blowing the seedlings off the stem. I figured since the wind had blown it into MY house, I got to make a wish. Ed McMahon hasn't shown up yet. I'm still waiting.

Beautiful pics! Even the crying ones! Emmi hated grass when she was a baby, she's always pick up her legs if we tried to put her in it. Now it's hard to keep her off the grass. I bet he'll love it in no time!
