Photo a Day: Week 13

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

Okay, so I’m a day late this week, but I have good reason. Yesterday we were traveling home from a week vacation and I was driving. So yeah, I couldn’t really get my Photo a Day for this week up while doing that. We visited family in NY, and had a great time lounging around and just enjoying ourselves, as you’ll see in this week’s photos.

Saturday

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Got to Nana’s house and discovered he left two of his toy cars there last time we visited.

Sunday

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Vacations are for lounging around.

Monday

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Vacations are also for amusement park fun! I’ll have more pics and info on our fun at Seabreeze Amusement Park in a few days.

Tuesday

More lounging, but on her gigantic teddy bear this time.

Wednesday

Photo a Day: Week 13 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Vacations are good for dance parties too.

Thursday

And more lounging.

Friday

And when we got home, we had a nice bunch of cherry tomatoes ready to pick and a cucumber from the neighbors. Guess I’ll cut up a salad tonight!

Photo a Day: Week 12

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear

This week has been full of fun and there’s no stopping us. We’re preparing for a road trip tomorrow, as next week is our last summer hoorah trip because as you’ll see, school is starting soon. Have your kids started school yet? We’re less than a month away!

Saturday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
We finally have our first tomatoes that haven’t been devoured by fruit worms. It’s a small, but tasty bounty.

Sunday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
When daddy leaves a shirt lying around, this girl jumps at the chance to wear it, even if it is on backwards.

Monday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Today she wanted to help pick the ripe tomatoes off the plants. And of course she gobbled them all up afterwards.

Tuesday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
We don’t just have tomatoes coming to life, but these huge sunflowers are blooming up too.

Wednesday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Not perfectly smooth, but I’d say it’s not bad for my first at-home acrylic job.

Thursday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
It’s official! We are starting school and I’ve got all the feels.

Friday

Photo a Day: Week 12 | #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Today was our son’s last day of summer tennis camp, so they had a huge BBQ for all the kids. Until next summer…

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear

As usual, my kids are the highlight of this week’s edition of Photo a Day. What can I say? They always steal the show.

Saturday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
I guess she wanted to go swimming.

Sunday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Headphones turned mutant buster goggles.

Monday

Minus the creepy look, he wanted to ride the decorative lion out front.

Tuesday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Can’t have nice things when you have kids. Can’t even have a bottle of water without a pen and colored pencil in it.

Wednesday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Speaking of having nice things, someone decided to take their art to the floor today. Guess it could be worse.

Thursday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
Learning to dust.

Friday

Photo a Day: Week 11 #photoaday #photoadayforayear
A big brain needs a big pencil.

Tuesday

This was once a dress. Now it’s a tunic kind of top. #ihopeitjustshrunk

Wednesday

Photo a Day: Week 10 #photoadayforayear #photoaday
If you follow me on IG, you’ve probably already seen and heard this. But I wore my house shoes to drop my son off at camp. As we walked out he said, “No mom. You’re socks and shoes.” I didn’t think anything of it because I wasn’t getting out of the car. He likes to walk to the tennis courts by himself (I sit in the car and watch to make sure he gets where he needs to be). He had different plans today and asked me to walk with him. Haha! Guess the joke’s on me. But that’s okay. #noshame

Thursday

Photo a Day: Week 10 #photoadayforayear #photoaday
This is another one I posted on IG, but this chicken was so good I just have to share. I thawed out a pack of chicken, not knowing what I was going to make with it. Ended up with this fresh and delicious, chicken and mushroom dish. I think I might share it on the blog soon because I’ll definitely be making it again!

Friday

Photo a Day: Week 10 #photoadayforayear #photoaday
Just a little sister trying to chase her big brother. They do this every day when we pick him up from tennis camp.

Man, Friday came fast this week and it’s time for “Photo a Day.” This week my daughter tends to be in a lot of photos, but we’re together 24/7 and sometimes I just can’t handle the cuteness. Enjoy!

When it’s hot out, the heat makes you do crazy things like eat ice cream. This kid NEVER eats ice cream. He’s so picky he misses out on the good stuff, but not today.

Photo a Day: Week 8 #photoaday #photoadayforayear

I’ve only posted on the blog once this week, and it’s because I’ve been laying low and spending a lot of time with family. You’ll see in this week’s photos it has been a week of busy park going and there are no plans of slowing down anytime soon. But that’s what the summer’s for right? Fun in the sun!

TGIF because I’m dying. Walked my son to tennis camp this morning and this was the result. A one hour walk, 30 minutes each way AND I still have to go back to get him. #dead #toohotforthis

I may not have gotten this week’s photos posted on Friday, but we did make our weekly run to the library for some new books. Last time we got a “Froggy” book and the kids loved it so much they decided to get two this time!

Photo a Day: Week 4

Photo a Day: Week 4 #photoaday #photoadayforayear

If there’s one thing you take away from this week’s “Photo a Day” pictures, it should be that we have a lived in home. Cleaning is not a top priority and I know I’m not the only one. I’m just not afraid to show it, haha!  A few of this week’s photos show just how messy our home gets sometimes, but the kids are happy and that’s what matters. Enjoy!

Saturday

When the refrigerator hasn’t been this empty since moving in, it’s a great opportunity to clean it out. This was after cleaning it, by the way.
