Our Day

AJ found the life vest in the basement & insisted on wearing it as he helped daddy fill up the pool this morning...
you know...just in case he fell in...
He got a little thirsty in the mean time...

After our failed attempt at going to the farmer's market(apparently it is on Sundays...oops), we decided to treat ourselves.
Oreo Blizzard for dad, Orange Julius for mom, & a sprinkle covered cone for AJ...everyone was happy!

Until AJ decided he was finished and bolted from Dairy Queen...where mom had to leave behind her Orange Julius & chase after AJ, sprinting down the sidewalk with Abby bouncing around in the sling...
apparently he IS strong enough to open the door by himself... 
I should know to never underestimate the strength or speed of my little escapee...

Here is the little man on an afternoon bike ride.  
(Notice the blocks on the pedals.)



Girlfriend in my favorite color!
Yellow!
Today I bought coordinating shirts for our family pictures we are getting at the end of next week.  I can't wait!!! I am SO excited!  It will be our first professional photo shoot!  I have lists of picture ideas!  I already have frames for our pictures...that are yet to be taken...
 
Our color scheme is inspired by one of my favorite Abby dresses I received as a gift from a student...it is pink & yellow!  YELLOW!  Can you believe I am getting our pictures done with yellow as our coordinating color?!  It is a daring color to center our pictures around...I know...but it is SO me!

I have to admit that I got a little distracted on my shopping trip
(imagine that?) 

Abby ended up with her first pair of jellies...they even have glitter infused in them!  
I'm sure you couldn't have passed them up either...


I won't mention the 4th of July outfits I got for the kids...or the Father's Day outfit I got Abby...& I'll never admit how much I spent on my new shirt...

so...

Here is Girlfriend sporting a bracelet that one of my students made her.
I might talk about my kids a little at school...just maybe...

Peace out friends!  Have a great weekend!

Thank you for the new pics. I can't believe how much AJ has changed once again. Everyday he looks more and more like you. He's so funny! And so bold! Goodness! And that GF! I wish I could snuggle her! I love that your pictures are going to be so summery and fun! Can't wait to see them! That bracelet is really cute. Just be careful she doesn't break it and try to eat a bead.

VERY good advice aunt jess! it seems to me that you had a very similar pair of jellies when you were a baby chance. i believe yours may have been a pinkish purple color but infused with glitter non the less. xo recca joy
