It’s day 3 and I’m trying to capture more of the real and the stories and trying less to sugar coat and clean up before shooting. Our day was pretty sweet…gosh…why the heck am I at such a loss for words right now?
Just gonna get on with the pics:
the morning starts off with putting the dishes away to prepare for all the cooking we will do this evening.
matt always leaves his coffee puch on the counter. he likes sugar in his coffee.
check out the hair…wow…that needs to be tamed. i’m making suntea.
breakfast is everything bagels and cream cheese.
what’s a girl to do? florence + the machine? fleetwood mac? foghat? all on the same screen….tough decisions had to be made.
i got a little time on my beloved pinterest to browse while marshall played with trains in his room.
when marshall decided to play out back…i thought it’d be a good time to hang up my paint chip banner.
gibson trying to avoid the camera, but i got him. this shot cost me a buck! he’s charging me now…can you believe that?
also while we were outside, i made this shirt. a tutorial post will come soon.
these shoes. these shoes caused a huge fight today and in the end i gave gibson a Just Do It pep talk to help him understand the lesson we were trying to teach him. we cried. we laughed. we got over it.
i’m free. marshall went down for a nap and i jetted to my favorite scrapbook store for a little shopping time. the whole time was fabulous!
this is the lake in our town that we pass by on our way to rocklin. it’s beautiful when it’s blue!
i always have my ice water with me.
just a display that caught my eye. loving the colors..making me desperate to scrap!
on my way back i got the sweetest facebook message from a special friend that made me smile!
the bike trailer i have been eyeing at walmart was back in stock! $88 and it folds up! now we can drive somewhere with our bikes nad not just toodle around our neighborhood. =)
marshall wakes up from his nap with one sock on and one sock off. he said it was because he couldn’t find another one that patched perfectly. my kid is crazy OCD.
prepping kabobs for dinner tonight. matt’s sister and family are coming over tonight. we love them!
marshall plays with trains while he waits for his cousin to show up!
slathering the teryiaki chicken with the river marinade. we put these babies into toasted buns, with fresh grilled pineapple and cheese. so juicy and tender.
marshall and caleb. i failed to get any other pictures of the family when they were here. EPIC FAIL.
