It’s good to be my boys.
Other than having a seriously awesome mom (yours truly), they seem to have birthday celebrations that span multiple weeks. This year, they had three parties! Honestly, their cups runneth over.
Now before you think they’re completely spoiled (they are, but not completely), there’s good reason they were afforded a few celebrations. First, Ryder had a chance to celebrate his seventh birthday at Walt Disney World, as we were there for the Social Media Moms Celebration. Of course, we couldn’t celebrate Ryder’s birthday at the most magical place on earth without including Reid, whose birthday is a mere 11 days later. So, they were both treated to a memorable birthday, Disney-style.
Upon returning home, they wanted separate parties with school friends, so we had a small shindig with a few neighbourhood buddies. And finally, my family was dying to celebrate with the boys, so we hosted a small barbecue a few weeks later.
Contractually, this is my last post for the Nikon MOMents program. Those who have been following along know that for the last year, I’ve been capturing my most special moments with family, friends and often, a good beach. However, even though this is my last “official” post, you’ll always see my Nikon MOMents, because it’s my go-to DSLR for ALL my blog posts. After all, how else could I capture delicious MOMents like this?
Looking back, I can absolutely see how my photography skills – including my eye for taking the right photograph – have improved with each successive occasion. From a summer retreat in Muskoka to Christmas dinner with my family, I’ve had the opportunity to capture high quality memories that were made possible while using the Nikon D3300, creating stunning 24.2-megapixel photos and 1080p Full HD videos with tack-sharp details, vibrant colors and softly blurred backgrounds.
(Plus, if you love sharing photos like I do, D3300 photos can appear instantly on your compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing with the optional WU-1a Wireless Adapter.)
Therefore, to wrap up my campaign with Nikon MOMents, I wanted to post a few photos of the two people who are my entire world – my boys.
Ryder and Reid both had the same due date – May 25th. Seriously! We laughed when we found out that we were expecting another boy who was conceived around the same time as his brother, two years later.
However, they do not share the same birthday, as Ryder was born two weeks early on May 10th, and Reid was a scheduled c-section on May 21st. So, we’ve got two Tauruses who are incredibly unique in their own way.
Make a wish! Mine already came true. I have two boys who complete me. They keep me on my toes and have both inconvenienced and enhanced my life in immeasurable ways. Seven and five are great ages; the boys are full of curiosity and spunk.
And the BEST thing about little boys? They all love chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate. Pictured here, a La Rocca Milky Way cake: layers of chocolate cake and chocolate cream, finished with a caramel topping. Yum!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my MOMents and will continue to follow them. And, if you want to take stunning photos just like me, be sure to check out the Nikon D3300. Because your MOMents deserve to be captured, preserved and cherished.
