Since it is fall and before it becomes winter, here are some of my favorite pictures from this past summer and start of the school year. all unedited. because, really, I’m no photographer. And no amount of time on picmonkey is going to make you think otherwise.
needtobreathe concert. such a good time.
boy scout day camp. I went a couple of days. It made me want to be a boy scout. I may have partook in the bb shooting contest.
obligatory photo at the zoo.
foam party. fun was had by
tball trophies. no they didn’t “win”. But those smiles deserve some sort of prize, right?
hanging out at cousin allie’s wedding shower.
Fun at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. We walked through these no less than 10 times. but we did it very slowly. so they couldn’t yell at us.
THE BEACH! oh how I miss it. it is almost too painful.
we visited an ice cream parlour whle on vacation. i agree wholeheartedly with this saying that was flying above our heads. truer words have never been written.
the boys at the kids’ triathlon. ben really improved his time this year. so proud of them both.
Ben turned 8.
Ben and his buddies on his birthday.
My niece’s wedding. The kids clean up pretty well.
school started far too soon!
Emily didn’t like that she had to wait a few weeks after the boys to go to school. The first day brought pure delight to her face.
Alex turned 6!
he celebrated at the bowling alley with some friends and family.
we read close to 100 books in two days so that emily could ride in the street fair parade. during the parade someone in the crowd cried out, “there go the smart kids!” I replied, “Nope just a bunch of overachieving parents!”
em’s favorite ride.
the ride that i forced my children to ride without me (b/c I hate it). they all begged to go again.
And so farewell summer of 2014. It was a great one!
