July 5

This morning we got up and took Alyssa's Bridal Shots.  She is so fun to shoot and so EASY to get a good picture of!  However, I did discover next time I do Bridal's I'll need to rent a better lens.  The kit lens that I have to use for anything wide angle just doesn't do the trick.

Here are my favorites....

Happy Independence Day!!!

This year due to limited finances we really didn't plan the party or even really invite many people.  It ended up getting thrown together last minute, but it turned out really great!  I didn't do a huge buffet like a normally do, but several of my friends brought food to share (which was YUMMY!). We had a bunch of newbies at this party - that part was great because Jess and I have been talking about needing to grow our group of friends lately and I feel like we are FINALLY starting to do that!

Here are a few pics from the evening...

July 3

Lollie and Aunt Nancy came to visit today - good thing we have a Costco and Teacher Heaven in this town, I'm not sure we would see them otherwise!

For the record, we love it when Lollie comes and it is even better when she brings along company, and I do mean to tell you, Lollie LOVES Costco... L - O - V - E - S it.  I discovered that Aunt Nancy has just found a lovely store here called Teacher Heaven - and they mean it, if you are a teacher or a parent trying to have a learning environment you really must go there, but have a budget in mind because there are SO many neat things there it is dangerous!

So here are a few from the day...

This is Jake and his Lollie...

Here is Jake when Lollie had to get out of the car for 3 mins...

As a parent I am always looking at Jake and wonder what he might be when he grows up...

The other day I got a glimpse of a possibility...

Accountant perhaps???

How is it July ALREADY?!  Well, I am feeling a bit like a failure, my accomplishing great cleaning and organizing feats has not really panned out so far this summer.

I just can't seem to have enough time ever.

I suppose all I can do is keep on keeping on....
