10 days

Since my last post.

Where did the time go?!

I’ve wanted to write, but I’ve been doing things.

Working on projects, exploring Portland, and enjoying a visit from Ryan’s parents.

{12 days}

Until school starts for my kiddos.

That means we have 12 days to soak up the rest that summer break has to offer.

Pool time, backyard fun, and maybe some additional adventures that we still need to cross off our summer list.

{8 days}

Until Ryan turns 40.

No party planned.

He didn’t want one.

I am kicking him out of the house this weekend.

I told him he had to go do something for himself and he had to be gone at least two nights.

It sounds like he has a perfect getaway planned.

{4 days}

Until college football starts.

Our house will be filled with the sights and sounds of college football all weekend.

I am so excited.

{10 days}

Until baby girl turns 3.

Where did the time go?!

{summer in snapshots} week one

Like I told you all last week, I will be taking part in the Starfish Blog’s linky party every Wednesday this summer for her Summer in Snapshots series.

So, here it goes…

Monday, June 13th: No photos…not even sure what we did that day, but since I didn’t even know about the Summer in Snapshots series I guess it’s OK!

Tuesday, June 14th:  We played outside most of the day, and had to take a quick trip to Urgent Care after baby girl got hit in the face with a shovel.

Wednesday, June 15th:  We went to Cook Park to take photos for Ryan’s Father’s Day gift.

Thursday, June 16th:  I didn’t take any photos…our babysitter came over and I ran errands to get ready for the weekend and playgroup.

Friday, June 17th:  We opened presents in the morning to celebrate my 36th birthday…

and enjoyed a morning at the park with our friends from Friday Playgroup.

While baby girl napped, I relaxed and watched the little guy wash his cars.

After dinner we had ice cream cake!

Saturday, June 18th:  Ryan and I had a date night…dinner and shopping!

Sunday, June 19th:  We celebrated Father’s Day as a family. Baby girl and I met the boys down at the river for some fishing!

I am so excited to take part in this series! This will make me be more deliberate with my blog posts, and be sure that we are taking photos as we cross things off of our own summer list! I will probably have more than one photo a day as I find it hard to just pick one when I take so many photos…hope you don’t mind!

Finally, Emily at Jones Design Company also linked up today…she has a great tutorial on how to make photo collages using Picasa. I’m going to have to give it a try!

home is…crossing things off of our summer list and having FUN!

funtime carnival

I love the little guys school.

Remember this post from a year ago?

I couldn’t be happier with our choice.

And, most importantly, he loves it too!

On Friday night there was a carnival at his school for all the families to attend.

Games, prizes, balloons…the kids had a blast!
