Welcome to Nikonians! Lovely images, especially the first one (upper left corner). My only comment, seems like you could have used a bit more light directly from the side (off camera, perhaps) on the macro flower shot (in the right column)...still lovely images and cute kids!
Thanks for comments - will bear in mind the lighting on the macro shots - find this is quite difficult to get right - spent about an hour this morning trying to get the lighting right on a dopey wasp using off camera sb600, could get the exposure ok but trying to get a punchy image was difficult.
Yes first three kids are ours the last is a friend of my daughter

Yes sb600 bounced i-ttl bl although I guess it didnt have much to do it was on one of a series with different ISO's this one was shot with the 55-200 dx lens aperture f11 1/60 at ISO1600. I did no calculation - just set the aperture, composed and shot
