Oh, if I could bottle up that heavenly baby smell... (Oops, my ovaries just gave a little jump! Down, fellas.)

Kristina P. said...

That little Brooke is beautiful!

Hilary said...

Love these. The kids are gorgeous of course but that baseball image is wonderful.

RoseBelle said...

Baby Brooke looks like she's having a dream of being fed something she doesn't like. I love the sweet smell of babies. And the boys looked like they were having a blast mowing the lawn!

Sarah said...

Baby Brooke is A-DORABLE!! I love the picture with the Sonic drinks. You are so creative!

Marla said...

Oh little Brooke gets cuter every single day. I want a baby this instant. :)

PA has Sonic?! Now there is no longer a reason for me to stay in Texas! :) I could smell the fresh cut grass in your mower pictures. Ah, spring!

The Incredible Woody said...

I wish my second chin was as cute as Baby Brooke's!!!

Aunt Snow said...

On Mother's Day at a brunch I got to smell the head of a 2 month old baby. Baby-head smell is the best!!!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

I love the smell of freshly cut grass in the spring.

Natasha said...

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Babies...mmmmmmm.

slushies....
Heaven.
Just, heaven.

Jennifer said...

Great post! I love your 'take' on scents. :) I forgot there is a theme to the Tuesday link up... mine has nothing to due with scents. I will have to remember to look in advance next week!

Angela said...

Love it! Can smell that baby form here!!! *goes to google what Sonic is*

Angela said...

The Paper Mama said...

Thanks for the sweet comment! I'll try and find a scent photo and participate tomorrow. :)

Love your post!

Ash said...

awesome pics!! LOVE it! i'm sure that a baseball smells like rubber+soil. let's do a scientific research on it and make our millions.

Rebecca said...

I think a baseball does have a scent. I imagine leather and dirt. :)

Guess what...you asked me if I ever shot photos of people..well I did my first official photo shoot:
Grad Shots

Looking forward to June 5.

Frau said...

Your post smelled like baby powder, grass, cherry lime drinks, leather and happiness. Love the smells of Spring!

Queenie Jeannie said...

How fun! I'll have to play later. I'm going to be roasting a big turkey today!! YUMMMMY!!!!!!!!!

Marilyn said...

I like the smell of sugarplums. We had tornadoes. Boy, the sirens were going off to warn us and Nicky was so scared. Just a little roof damage here but some really bad damage just 3 miles from us. Not much sleep last night but hey, we are fine!!

Stephanie said...

Baby is the best scent :)

I've heard Cherry Limeades are sooo good but I've yet to try one. Think I might have to break down and bite the bullet!!! My kids adore their slushies!

Oh and baseball definitely has a scent-we live it at our house!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Brooke must smell like heaven. I need a big mower like that too...but with a blade running 24/7!
My scent? tomato plants, basil, cilantro and dogs. :0

TechnoBabe said...

The pictures of the boys driving the riding lawnmower by themselves are keepers for sure. They will want the pics in their photo albums one day to show their families. Who knows if we will even have real grass by then> Smile.....
We have a Sonic here but never been. Hubby and I pulled in one time and it didn't feel comfy to sit in the car and wait for someone to come to the car to see what we would like to order. Maybe we will try again though just for a drink like you describe.

Mental P Mama said...

Love this!! That first shot is adorable...and I'm pretty sure baseball's scent is a combination of chewing tobacco and popcorn. Pure summer!

amy said...

Your pictures are fun and tell a nice story!

April said...

Ahh...I can smell that freshly mowed grass from here! Smells like summertime to me! I would have to say that one of my favorite scents is lavender...can't get enough of it!

Natalie said...

Great post! I think everybody loves newborn baby scent!
The smell of the rain is one of my favorites, too.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello :)

Brooke said...

i think baseball is a mix of grass, dirty, and hot dogs. they should make a baseball scented candle! :)

momentsofwhimsy said...

There's something about the scent of a baby :-)

Lolli said...

Oooh! I love scents. Especially new baby smells. Grass makes me sneeze. ;)

mamamia said...

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

That riding mower is pure male bliss!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Amie said...

Your pics are just beautiful!

jennykate77 said...

I could just squeeze that little Baby Brooke!!! She is so stinkin' precious...sleeping so soundly! Baby scent is my favorite scent! Cute pics of Kaish and his grandpa mowing the lawn. Oh, and YUM on the Sonic!

Anita Johnson said...

The photo of Brooke is just the cutest thing! I smell somewhat like our wet dogs from the car, I may have to skip this week! :-)
The joys of spring!

Noooooooooo! I forgot to participate. I have a good excuse though. I was in the doctor's office with my husband all day. He's going to have to undergo a colonoscopy and see a neurosurgeon as well. Good excuse, right? :(
I loved your photos...as usual! I'm going to set a reminder for myself for next Monday! Nice to see you again. Have a great day.

i could almost smell 'em all! that baby face! oh! and love the photo of the shakes... great. but fav? the imagination of what the boys' day was like with g'pa. lovely! :)

Run DMT said...

I love the theme of this post. You had some very clever scents. All the photos make "scents" to me. Get it? Get it? Scents instead of sense? Sorry, I couldn't resist the pun.
:-P

Puanani503 said...

oh definitely baby smell and the scent of shakes:):)

Mighty M said...

I was smelling a 3 month old today. Love that baby smell.
