My Week(250) in iPhone Photos

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Can you believe I’ve done this nonsense for 250 weeks? Caroline wasn’t even BORN when I did the first one. So I suppose I can’t even think about quitting, despite the fact that I can barely remember to do them. This one is late and I had to check my dates three times because it’s so hard to believe a week ago we were still on vacation. Real life happens SO FAST.

Sunday:

sunday1

Evan is doubtful that 3 people in a one person kayak is wise.

sunday2

Linc loves vacation

sunday3

Caroline is ALWAYS ready for more pictures

Monday:

monday1

If you look hard enough, you can almost see New York down the river

monday2

I liked the reflection in the back of that tanker

monday3

Linc is happy to see all his stuff again

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Caroline is writing a song

tuesday2

Grumpy pants needed a walk to get ready for bed

tuesday3

I really, really love this front porch.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

The zoo was so fun.

wednesday2

I will never get tired of these photos.

wednesday3

I had three ladies tell me they liked my hair and none of them even notice I was nursing a baby.

Thursday:

thursday1

Lunch at Quincy Market should always involve a lobster roll

thursday2

Boston Children’s Museum

thursday3

Linc was over Boston (and I was over my poor choice of shirt on a 90 degree day)

Friday:

SUPER COOL PRESS EVENT POST COMING SOON

friday2

I was really good at juggling, if my really good you mean terrible

friday3

Red Lantern at Foxwoods = ORDER ALL THE SUSHI

Saturday:

They must have bought those water bottles at Target. Poor confused children.

saturday2

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaap

saturday3

What? I’m hungry.

I forgot I had Virginia vacation photos to post, plus I have the post about our fun date at Foxwoods, so as long as I don’t die of heatstroke (we’re on day 5 or 6 of 90 degrees plus) I’ll have more new blog stuff up soon.

Zoo Day June 2015

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

I have taken a TON of photos over the past week. I know you’re probably thinking “Um, but Suzanne, you ALWAYS take a ton of photos, why is this new information?” Really, I haven’t actually been taking photos. I’ve been trying to get used to wrangling 3 kids. It’s kind of been kicking my ass, especially in public. Even with Linc tied to my body I have a hard time, because he’s either grabbing the camera or his weight changes my center of gravity and I have a had time balancing to get interesting, in focus photos. Besides the

Besides the photo I take every day for my 365 project, I’ve hardly been doing any creative or documentary photography. This blog was built on me sharing photos of our adventures, so it’s really been suffering from that loss. Bebehblog started with a crappy point and shoot camera and evolved into somewhere I learned, shared and grew with my photography. I am hoping I can get back in the habit of documenting our lives with more than just my iPhone.

We went to the zoo with some of our favorite friends on Saturday to celebrate Z’s 4th birthday. Caroline and Z are like two animal-loving peas in a pod, so they a great time. We all did, because hanging out with friends is the best.

My Week(243) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

Caroline had morning day camp at Mystic Seaport last week, so we were out of the house Doing Stuff almost every day. Doing stuff is really fun, but I might not be up for stuff every day. Maybe every other day. This coming week Evan has full day Seaport Camp, so we’ll do even more stuff. I am both excited and already tired.

I can’t believe it’s already the last week of June. I keep having to triple check the calendar to make sure I’m not on the wrong month. I have less than 4 weeks before Lincoln turns one and before his birthday party. I ordered a ton of birthday stuff but have no actual decorating plans beyond “hang up some sparkly stuff” and “maybe cake?” Luckily we have a bunch of family coming, so I will have people to help me cut up one zillion foods into star shapes.

It is freezing cold today but the forecast for the rest of the week looks perfect for lots of #lakelife fun. So far it’s been a pretty good summer.

Did lots of things. Am tired. Kids are tired. Zzzzzzzzzz.

LOOK MY POPCORN CAUGHT FIRE. GET IT?

Trip #1 to the grocery store. We did buy cookies. We forgot a turkey.

They FINALLY built a playground at the zoo!

Those are yesterday’s lollipops they brought to the parade

Processed with VSCOcam

Our local parade is adorable, if not very fancy.

Considering it was only 30 degrees all week, we spent a TON of time outside. My kids don’t care. They were born in New England*. Today Caroline took off her jacket and her hoodie and ran around in just a shirt.  But despite the temps we had a really great week.

Now I am throwing myself FULL FORCE into Caroline’s birthday party. Luckily “princess” isn’t the most original theme, so just grabbing pink or sparkly or sparkly pink stuff is pretty easy. I just need to get my house in order so I can start putting things up before I buy yet another princess tent and realize I don’t have anywhere to put FOUR of them. Tomorrow I’m going to let her pick out the ugliest, most ridiculous princess cake we can find to order from ShopRite. I’m so excited.

*This logic fails since I was born in Massachusetts and I’m freezing.

The next week is going to be a busy one for me – TWO trips into NYC for fun blogging stuff. The weather is supposed to be a little more reasonable too (70’s instead of 90’s) so we can go back to doing other fun stuff besides hiding at the lake. Not that I really MIND hiding at the lake, I just don’t think I can afford to go through that much sunscreen every single week.
