Summer Recap

So, I didn't blog much over the summer.

I'm sorry.

But life was crazy,
and busy,
and wonderful,
and stressful,
and all of the above.

But, even though I wasn't blogging, I was taking pictures.

Lots of pictures!

You wanna see?

I thought so ;)

Well, we kicked off the summer with a visit from my parents, little sister and brother (professional photographer from Hawaii).

I have LOTS of pics of this on my computer, but they are not mine, they are my brothers and I'm afraid to touch them or edit them for fear that you may think I took them and believe me to be a much better photographer than I actually am.

But he did take a few photos that I know I have permission to share.

Such as this one, from my girls' Wizard of Oz birthday party.

Wizard of Oz party for my girls <3

It was a pool party complete with blue gingham bathing suits and ruby red flip flops!
