What a great week! After days upon days of cold and rain, the sun came out! Everyone was quite excited, which was evident as I was looking over the pictures from this week. Lots of outside, just being kids photos...doesn't make for exciting blog posts, but its how we like doing life.
Princess Jasmine for the evening.
There was also a friendly game of baseball in the kitchen...
We were getting Trot some exercise and it was a little wet and muddy. As any boy should, Aiden heads straight for the biggest puddles.
Trouble is not too far around the corner when these two get alone without Avery's supervision. (Aiden insisted on wearing his knit hat.)
Avery made a hopscotch game.
Later, the kids went across to the neighbor's to "help" with yard work.
Shaun and Nathan took down a big tree and Aiden was in his glory as we unloaded Daddy's truck of wood.
I was asked to second shoot a wedding this weekend. This is Newport, RI, a short walk from the rehearsal dinner location. Beautiful town! When I got in my car at 11:30 pm to make the two-hour trip back home, alone, I realized how spoiled I am that Shaun always does the driving.
As we loaded up to go to the grocery store, I just had to save the moment in time. Such a mundane task, but these guys are always happy for the outing. This day the girls got their babies dressed, packed purses and put their dogs on a leash. And Aiden just thinks his sisters are cool.....love this bunch.
Oh, and you can see our freshly refurbished car in the back....good as new.
After church we went to some friends' house for some backyard fun. The seven kids played great together and the adults enjoyed some laughs around the fire.
