Out of My Funk...

Blogging funk that is. I haven't blogged in ages, and honestly haven't missed it much (except for all my favorite blogger ladies, who I keep up with on twitter). Our summer has been a whirlwind it seems. I thought it might be a tough summer for Macie and I since I couldn't do a lot to entertain her during the day, but I am SO thankful she was home with me. We had a great summer, and she stayed plenty busy, and Addaline is still as sassy as ever, Lord help us!

So what have we been up to? We took our Disney vacation, the girls had a few rounds of VBS, we did a LOT of swimming, Addaline played some t-ball and did a great job, staying in and keeping cool when it was 8 million degrees outside watching chick flicks while G worked out of town, and our most recent activity included taking the girls on a surprise weekend trip to Omaha, NE to the zoo and to stay at a water park resort. We have made so many amazing memories with the girls this summer, I couldn't have asked for a better few months, and I'm a little sad it's over!

So here's what you could find us up to this summer...

Hanging out in the happiest place on earth

Enjoying a photo-op with their favorite 'fix it' guy

Having a party with some of our favorite people

Finding out that my 3 year old has NO fear when it comes to fireworks and fire

Posing like our usual 'diva-esque- self 

Sneaking photo ops with a death grip when your toddler is just 'too busy mom' 

Enjoying baby snuggles

Mom's acting like 12 year olds 

Playing babies and getting a glimpse of the future 20 years from now

Cheesey smiles because you're just SO excited to be on a new adventure

Savoring the moment of my sweet, not so much my baby anymore, growing girl

Acting like a kiddo posing with your mini-me

Monkey'ing around on the Gorilla's

Taking photos right into the sun causing everyone to have the 'squinty' smile

Taking the precious opportunity when someone finally lets you take her photo and actually smiles

Checking out all the under water life, and being in awe of it all

My first born starting 4th grade, my oh my where has the time gone?

Striking a pose and requesting this photo be sent via text to all her favorite loved ones

Party planning for my favorites... how can it be that they're already this old. Emotional mom moment in progress. 

Glad to be back to the place I love to write. Hope you all had a wonderful summer and savored every moment!
