DO ALL THE SUMMER BEFORE IT’S GONE.

Sunday:

sunday1

I put away the changing pad (that I’ve used maybe twice ever) since I don’t have any babies anymore.

sunday2

Fresh neighborhood eggs are a game of IS THERE A CHICKEN FETUS IN THIS OR NO?

sunday3

Best spot ever for senior pictures? Probably.

Monday:

monday1

Tired.

monday2

Mess.

monday3

Tired.

Tuesday:

I WILL MISS YOU WHILE I AM AT SCHOOL BABY SISTER EVEN THOUGH WE ARE GOING TO SAME SCHOOL.

tuesday2

Mommy the donkey is my best friend!

tuesday3

Cloud or portal opened to another dimension by a tesseract?

Wednesday:

Our last gymnastics class. She’ll have to use her super strength somewhere else.

wednesday2

Our duck pond has an endless supply of adorable baby ducks and I cannot stop taking pictures of them.

wednesday3

Waiting patiently for her grilled cheese.

Thursday:

thursday1

NO PICTURES PLEASE.

thursday2

Tinker Bell rests in the tasting room of the winery. Being a fairy is hard work.

Friday:

friday1

The princess generously bestows bacon upon her people.

friday2

friday3

THREE GINGERS.

Saturday:

saturday1

Yard sale. Most of it’s on the curb now, it was not a smashing success. But at least it’s all out of my house.

saturday2

Second day of the princess dress. I peeled it off her to wash it because 2 year olds are gross.

saturday3

Watching more Watch Us Edit videos from Clickin Moms and it’s still blowing my mind.

It was a surprisingly good week, even if I continue to make poor choices in regards to my own bedtime. 11 pm has become midnight has become 1 am, which means I’m getting like 5 hours of sleep which means I am chronically tired which is my OWN FAULT and yet I keep doing it. I am not very good at learning my lesson. I’m also so, so excited about Ginger Snaps Pictures (website! facebook! in progress, so don’t judge too harshly) and the photography classes/workshops/critiques I’ve signed up for I CAN’T go to bed any earlier. I need those post-kid hours. Although I have managed to thoroughly wear them out several days this week so they took naps – NAPS! – and slept a full 12 hours at night.

This week will be almost as full as last week, which is my favorite kind of week. Even if I am tired.

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

Our week was busy, except for when it wasn’t because of the pouring rain and flash floods. But mostly busy.

Sunday:

sunday1

I mean, I only have three doll houses, why not buy another one? (I did not)

sunday2

Caroline is destined for music videos with lots of mind machines

sunday3

I appreciate how the trees on the point hide most of the nuclear power plant. More scenic.

Monday:

I’ve never actually seen the state capitol before

monday2

Confucius say: Give a man $120 and he will give you an LLC.

wednesday2

Playdates make me hungry, and this was super delicious

wednesday3

I told Evan he is my photography assistant, and he said that means he has to push the stroller.

Grocery store in the pouring rain

thursday2

Destroying the house and having pillow fights in the pouring rain

thursday3

Friday:

Saturday:

saturday1

Home run!!

saturday2

I never should have showed her how the front-facing camera works.

saturday3

Restarted C25K. This time I am determined to finish.

The urgency to do as many things and have as much fun as possible before summer is over has hit. I was actually grateful for a rainy miserable day to stay home and relax (even though we ended up having friends over and totally wearing out my kids). July is almost over and August is going to FLY by and then Evan starts 5 days a week morning pre-k, which I am both totally ready and not at all ready for. They grow up so fast, etc etc, but I’m looking forward to a new stage where I have a lot more time to focus on things I love (especially photography) instead of just being Mommy.

This is Evan’s idea of being helpful when I try to take his picture. So helpful.

It’s 9 pm Monday night, which means the long weekend is officially over. E actually got 2 full days off and we fit in as much fun as possible – TWO parades on Monday! I also took pictures for two different friends and I’m buckling down to get my editing done. I’m actually HOPING for rain at least one day this week so I don’t feel bad keeping the kids inside. I’ll make up for it with a beach or two when it hits 85 later in the week.

Best birthday party ever? I THINK SO.

SO MUCH SUNSHINE this past week. I need to buy some more sunscreen immediately. Or maybe I need a super cool hat so I fit in with my kids. Right now I’m hoping I FINALLY managed to tire them out past a 6 am wake-up call, but I’m not holding my breath and plan to go to sleep right now. Soon. Probably. Maybe after to more glasses of wine.
