Will this busyness ever die down! I feel like I’ve got 20 things going on at once! But I’m finally home, no more trips this year, and hopefully I’ll be able to catch back up on blogging. I’ve got lots of gorgeous new families to share with you. Some pretty adorable kiddos. And of course my little June Bug’s 8 month pictures will be up soon. So keep checking back often, I’ve got lots coming up! For now, I’ll share a little about my weekend.
Our camping trip was a lot of fun. Peaceful. Just what I needed. The drive up was actually enjoyable. Both girls sleeping in back, I celebrated my freedom to choose what I wanted to listen to! No Woody & Jessie, Robots, or Goofy. I put in Maroon 5, and just enjoyed doing nothing! Just as I was pulling into the camp, the sun was setting and it was gorgeous. I’ve never seen a sunset like that before. Absolutely beautiful. Wish I had my camera in the front seat!!
I hardly ever bring my camera with me when I’m not working. Sad, I know. It just seems like a chore to lug around that huge camera bag. But I have a new take on my life. I take pictures of other people’s families all year long. I try to catch those moments they want to always remember. I love it, it’s truly the greatest job……… but what about my family? What about my moments? They’re confined to the most convenient avenue available, a pitiful excuse for a camera, the iPhone. I decided not long ago, I needed to invest some time & effort into MY family. So I sucked it up and brought my 50 pound camera camping with us. I knew things were bound to happen that would desperately need to be documented…
Like, laughing with cousins.
Creepy spiders…. seriously, creepy.
Lessons from an Uncle on feeding grasshoppers to the creepy spider.
(Notice the iPhone… I guess Aaron thought we needed even more pictures of this thing. Ew.)
Sweet girls. And one amazing daddy.
Exploring… climbing trees… getting as filthy as possible… and of course more bugs!
I wish I could share a picture of us sitting around the campfire, talking… I was too busy rocking a sleepy baby girl. I don’t ever hold A when she sleeps, and I loved every second of it.
I wish I could share a picture of the baby freak out the 2 little ones had late that night. My mom, sister, and I couldn’t do anything but laugh at the situation. 4 kids crammed in aÂ Winnebago. Enough said!
I wish I had a picture that depicted exactly how much love is in our little circle of family & amazing, life long friends. I’m so blessed.
