Spending Easter at Grandma and Grandpa’s house was good family time. We love their house and the cozy things we find there. Here are some shots and spring color inspiration:
Some more color inspiration from my vacation photos!
some of my favorite flowers from my favorite place, the ancient nunnery….

Leap year is tomorrow!! I’ve never really paid it much attention before, except to feel sorry for the people who are born on leap year and technically only have a birthday every four years…but this year all of a sudden I thought…here’s a day that doesn’t come around very often, we should celebrate it! (but not with commercialized sales, etc) We should celebrate it, because the next Leap Year February day that comes around, my 5-year-old will be 9, my 7-year-old will be 11, my 11-year-old will be 15 and my 12-year-old will be 16 years old…….YIKES!!!!!!!!! and double yikes. So tomorrow will be a celebration to freeze a moment in time, because the next time my family and I celebrate this day, our lives will be different and full of teenagers and tweens. *sigh* (I hadn’t actually figured out the ages until just this second as I typed this…gulp…a big lump in my throat).
So I took some photos and made up some color palettes to get myself in the mood to set up a little party for tomorrow….;)
(yes, i carved an apple instead of cleaning the counters and loading the dishwasher after lunch.)
I read that tomorrow is National Frog Legs Day in the USA (according to http://foodimentary.com/today-in-national-food-holidays/february-food-holidays/) who knew? It will be a good day to watch the original Muppet Movie! Maybe with a big bucket of green popcorn. Or something, we’ll see…
I guess February 29th is also a day when traditionally a woman could ask a man out on a date, or even propose marriage to him. (Maybe I didn’t know this because I missed out on watching the movie Leap Year, haha). Did anyone else miss this vital piece of information? I just did it anyways…in March….about 19 years ago…heh heh…. 😉
There was a lot of cool graffiti down Atanasio Tzul, and I even dared to get Henry to drive in close for some photos…but didn’t dare hop out and pose by the walls…too many scary stories 🙂
The kids loved this one:
Loved this little store front, an interesting mix of products/produce:
and my favorite, old Antigua door-knockers 😉
I can’t get enough of color! I’ve finally figured it out, I’m crazy for color. Doesn’t matter where I find them.
¡Ya lo decifré, el color es mi locura! Me encanta ver colores, no importa donde los encuentro.
Aquí hay unas paletas de colores que hice de unas fotos de mi viaje a Guatemala.
Here are some color palettes from some of my photos from my recent Guatemala trip.
One of the gorgeous window in Antigua…
I love bougainvilleas in any color, but especially in magenta!
So many corner stores! Lots of cell phone advertising; instead of hanging a sign, they paint your whole building!
I’m afraid that turtles are not my favorite animal, but the kids loved them….
There’s nothing like swinging in a hammock with the sea breezes floating past your bare feet.
I could just drink all these colors up!! 😉
