July 2013: Roseburg Trip


We try to get together with the Newtons and Nelsons over Fourth of July every year. This past summer we headed to Roseburg and the Newtons hosted. It was one of the most perfect summer weekends! We spent one morning picking fruit and veggies that we used to cook with all weekend. Maddie and Edrie have been friends since birth, but this was the first trip they really could play together. SO FUN TO SEE! And I love these pictures of them in the field.



Sister ate and ate and ate.

We went on walks and the girls held hands ... so sweet! I didn't get any pictures of little Natalie! She is about a year younger than Edrie and is just the sweetest - she was just starting to walk and she trekked all over the house!

Janelle arranged for one of her students to watch the girls so all 6 of us could go out. It was SO MUCH FUN! We went to a local winery and had some amazing wine and appetizers then headed to a great Italian spot for dinner. I hope we can do a repeat of that weekend again soon!

June 2013: Randoms

This is one of my all time favorite pictures - she looks so sweet and innocent! She was making father's day cards. Sister friend loves herself some art projects. She is her mama's daughter, afterall!

I can't remember exactly why they made me these signs but I think it was becuase I was getting sick and tired of working full time. I know lots of mamas do it, but working full time is such a struggle for our family. I started a new job last April and to orient to the new unit I had to work full time even though my actual job is part-time. It makes is a huge challenge with childcare and my schedule was different every week so we felt all out of whack. I kept these signs up for months and months - just so sweet and special. 

And the rest of our randoms... 

June 2013: Beach Afternoon

We had nothing planned one Saturday so we decided to head to the beach. It was gorgeous - the perfect summer afternoon. Edrie entertained herself with the sand and a new friend and we relaxed. I love that we are so close to the ocean again! 



June 2013: Lindsey's Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party


Lindsey is one of my best friends. We've been SUPER close since we met in General Chemistry in college. She's been there for all of my big and little life stuff. And so we were super excited to celebrate her impending wedding.

We did a bridal shower brunch followed by a wine tasting tour in 'vintage' bridesmaid/wedding dresses. We were surely the talk of the town!

June 2013: Giant Salad for Two

Everyday for lunch Grant eats a giant salad. He LOVES them. Even on the weekends he wil typically throw one together in a mixing bowl. Sometimes Edrie will chow down too. This day I caught them in the act and I just die looking at these pictures. SO FREAKING CUTE!


June 2013: Date Night

At some point last spring I was looking for a recent picture of just Grant and I and I couldnt find one anywhere. We used to take pictuers ALL THE TIME (see blog archives pre-Edrie), but now there is someone much cuter to take pictures of. We've been doing better the last year or so at going on regular dates so one night I had G's mom take our picture so we'd a picture that was recent. We're still pretty cute, right??
