2010: A summary in iPhone pictures

2010 is almost over. It was a good year, complete with lots of laughter, love, friendship, new experiences, highs, lows, craziness, and everything in between. Through it all, I captured images that will forever be memories for me, thanks to my beloved iPhone camera. Of course, the pictures I took with my phone are only a snippet of my year, but a neat summary, nonetheless.

Here's my 2010, in iPhone pictures:

A trip to my favourite place, Florida. Taken while lying down beside my napping toddler, at the Westin Diplomat. I took this picture because of the giant blimp in the sky, trying to come to terms with one of my biggest fears ever: THE BLIMP. They completely terrify me!

A sunny day in February, complete with shades.


My snowman family. Aren't they adorable?

The fear of the car wash in early 2010 caused my son to spit out his granola bar.

Learning to skate, because that's what kids do in Canada. Freezing! Cold!

Vancouver 2010 Olympics! All about the red mittens.

Colourful backyard. It took a lot of chalk to do this!


Swimming lessons. By the end of the summer, he was a great swimmer, deep end and all!


Keeping busy parking vehicles on a hot summer day.


Brothers.


Plasma car racing in the book store, barefoot.


Soccer days. I sort of became a soccer mom. Wearing my FIFA 2010 hat!


Making strawberry jam.


Failed attempt at baking.


Followed by some retail therapy.


Hair cut!


Book store, our home away from home.


Getting dirty.

5th birthday party.


Pink Twitter, my favourite drink at BlogHer in New York City.


Pictures with a new friend and fabulous roomie.

Milk mustache. I know the secret! This is a picture of a picture, and I have no idea why it looks like my forehead is melting...


Summer fair.


The smiles that melt my heart.


APPLE JACKS!


Superman in Ikea.


LBD. My 'vintage' BCBG dress, circa 2002!


Enjoying nature outside the children's museum.


Backyard tree house. (Minus the tree.)



I can cook!


I also make the best carrot cake ever. Complete with cream cheese icing.




Leggings...with the controversial stirrups.


BlissDom Canada... yummy drinks at the Mabel's Labels party.


Mario and Luigo, and snow on Halloween.

LEGO.


Love of my life.


2 ipads and an iphone keep little boys very entertained!


Elevator hair check.


Back to my ex-hairdresser, perfecting my blonde. It was the best reunion ever.


Christmas tree 2010.


PBK stockings!


... and that's almost one whole year in iPhone pictures. Whew! Good times... I am looking forward to 2011, and to new wonderful memories!

It's so fun to look back and these are so great. I really LOVE they one of your boys sitting in front of the window together and that's actually a gorgeous photo! You should print that one and frame it.

Here's to a wonderful 2011!! :D

Avitable said...

Love the photos, although I think you need to learn how to take a photo of yourself in a mirror without blocking 90% of yourself with the phone. :)

CaraBee said...

Now I want to go back through my iPhone pictures! I love having a camera always handy. An opportunity to capture so many great memories.

I love the picture of the boys sitting side by side in front of the window.

Lady Mama said...

What a fabulous year. I noted a couple of things as I was reading through: we've had a similar experience at the carwash (tee hee); my son has that superman top; I love the olympic gear; the blond hair looks good; I still wish I'd been at Blogher!

Brittany at Mommy Words said...

Such a good idea, L! I have some great iPhone pics too that will never get printed. I should totally do this! Happy New Year, my friend! xo

Love the pictures!

I just caught up on the past month (seriously - it's been a month and I'm horrified - and kind of daunted by the impossibility of catching up on ALL of my reads...) Kicking myself for missing all of those giveaways.

But the real question is - did you get the blue dress????

Life with Kaishon said...
