Whew! It’s been a busy summer!
It started off with a wedding…an amazing wedding! My beautiful sister in law got married! Sadly, Joel and I both had the flu, but we still managed to have a good time 🙂 Ava and Em were the flower girls and had so much fun in their poofy dresses.
At the rehearsal:
See, she’s beautiful!
flower girl duties…nothing like a
Shirley Temple to bribe little girls
Joel and I before the ceremony:
Birthday for me! Voodoo Donuts in um, interesting shapes, from my BFF:
Despite a very mild summer here in Seattle, we’ve had a few days of sun here and there…time for ice cream! And yes, that second front tooth fell out too!
Mama got a new sewing machine a few months ago and it’s been getting quite the workout. I took an old t-shirt and sewed it to a little skirt and sash for Em:
And made both girls these outfits (Ava by Mod Kids…can you guess who picked it out? And the doll sized one, too!):
someone turned FOUR:
we picked some blueberries:
made LOTS of jam!
look! more sewing! Mama can never have enough aprons…
And on top of all that…we ditched the kidlets in Portland for a week and had a grown ups-only staycation (sorry, um…no pictures of that 😉 ).
Only a few weeks until school/soccer/Girl Scouts/fantasy football starts up again!
