My Week(157) in iPhone Photos

It really might as well be week one million. It feels like week one million.

Sunday:

I hung out with the cutest, chillest baby ever at the Community Baby Shower

My teeny little table showing off my work

Don’t worry, I pulled over before I took this picture out the car window of the regatta in the river

I took this picture AND threw that ball. Impressed????

School makes him tired.

Princess Sadface was sad, so we had lots of extra cuddles

Tuesday:

Processed with VSCOcam

I bought ALL THE GROCERIES. I also broke my crock pot (the second one!) so I can’t make half the stuff I planned.

Processed with VSCOcam

I like this spot.

Evan likes this spot too.

Wednesday:

Saying good morning to Fred, the giant fake Halloween spider

Face painting at school. She meowed all afternoon.

Reading on the front porch

Thursday:

All the RescueBots HAVE to come outside to wait for the bus with Evan.

Mr. Incredible from Enterprise. They’re office of superheroes was the best part of my day.

Trick or treating at the fancy houses

Processed with VSCOcam

They actually liked handing out candy more than collecting it

Friday:

It wasn’t actually raining, but the gingers do not care. Umbrellas make them look jaunty.

Processed with VSCOcam

WTF Target, it’s only NOVEMBER FIRST.

Processed with VSCOcam

I wasted fancy hair and spanx on a lousy event for E’s work.

Saturday:

Processed with VSCOcam

My assistant at the morning photo shoot got a liiiiitle dirty

Processed with VSCOcam

We have too many couches right now, but at least it means they can watch iPad OVER THERE and leave me alone.

Processed with VSCOcam

Yes, she is wearing her costume AGAIN. At least it was at a costume party.

E’s submarine was commission on Saturday, which means they’re one step closer to being a fully functioning boat that goes to sea. That is both good news (no more shipyard!) and bad news (deployments) but it also means he’s going to be working even more over the next couple of weeks. Since this is still the busy season for pictures too, I suspect there will be a lot of late nights for the next month. Although it hardly matters now, since it’s 4:55 pm and PITCH BLACK outside. Thanks for nothing, daylight savings time.

In blog news: I’m about 3 meals into a brand new round of What’s For Dinner – which I haven’t done in a crazy long time – and it’s nice to be cooking new stuff again. I can only handle taco salad and spaghetti so many times before I give up and let my family eat pop tarts and grapes for dinner. So watch for that sometime next week!

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

Welcome to August in New England, where the weather cools down juuuuust enough to make life bearable, the days are still super long, and the kids can SENSE that I’m shipping them off to school soon so they start demanding the playground every day.

Terribly grainy drive thru photo of the kids attempting the clapping part of the Cups song.

E’s hours are still killing him, but we managed to fit in some family time today, which was super fun. He even put up a curtain rod we’ve been meaning to put up for seven years. Maybe in another seven years we’ll fix the shower door that’s been broken since we moved in!  No, probably not. That clothes pin keeps it closed pretty well.

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.

Swinging is fun

 And now school vacation week is OVER and I get some Suzanne-time back. I love love love my children more than life itself, but there’s a point during the day where I want to lock them both in a closet. THE WHINING OH THE WHINING. It’s amazing what a difference 5 hours a week makes to my sanity and patience. Oh and P.S. World? Try not to go totally INSANE again next week, ok?
