Weekend in Review





We had a wonderful 4th of July. I checked off every last item off my list so now I am just going to relax and just enjoy my family. Over the weekend I majorly cleaned and organized so Kellen will only have to play keep up for the weeks that I am out of commission. Oh, but don't you worry I also found time to take the kiddos to a friends pool, do a little shopping, and enjoy a 4th of July cookout. We also had fun using Kellen's fathers day present a fuji instax instant mini film camera. Definitely the coolest thing we have gotten in awhile. It's never practical to lug around all our pro equipment for the little moments.

Glad you had such a nice weekend. I've been wanting that fuji for quite sometime now...

Stephanie Sabbe said...

so fun! you look too cute.

why do little kids always like hot tubs? We were in Hilton Head last week and they all wanted to be in the hot tub and it was literally 105 degrees outside.

Heather said...

The new camera looks cool! Wishing you the best for a super speedy recovery after your surgery. Good luck!

P.S. Yes, that is my garden in the photos! Still growing strong after being stomped on a little by my son!
