This week in pictures | week 8 & 9 of summer

I did it! I captured not our whole summer story but highlights that span over 9 weeks of free-spirited days filled with sticky mouths, sandy car mats, and chuckling children all around.  We haven't been happy like this since summer of 2016!

So here it is, our last photo montage of summer (I got lazy during week 8 so there isn't a separate post 😜):

This week in pictures | week 2 of summer

I'm doing a lot better since finishing my Z pack.  Doing nothing, just to rest, is a hard task being the start of summer and all.  I've rescheduled coffee plans. Postponed play dates. Skipped beach day Tuesdays.  In fact, the only person I let in the house this week was the pest exterminator.

On the other hand, it's relaxing being effortless.  See where the day takes you kinda mindset is nice for a change.

And so, here's our photo montage of week 2:

Father's Day brunch at Joe's Cafe right after the Wonder Woman matinee!

This week in pictures | week 1 of summer

I was so sick this week.

But it didn't stop me from surrendering to our first week of escapades. Summer brings out the late-morning risers in us Huis so although I've been infected the kids have let me roll out of bed at a decent hour.  Plus the fact that we are all so freak'n happy has contributed to my positive recovery.

And so...our photo montage of week 1:

Park day fix before the heat wave sets in.

Mother of all holidays

Finally got a chance to post my favorite memories from Mother's Day starting with three words every Mom wants to hear on Mother's Day - I am sorry.

...or flash back Friday to two years ago when I conducted one of my infamous back door photo seshes.  

Presley used to give me the most back lash because he couldn't stand posing for pictures.  I don't blame him.  It's tormenting for all parties involved.  But I've taught them that suffering together helps the greater good of preserving memories.  

He seemed to follow the same pattern of emotions laid out in ten phases without fail - every time.

I survived Pali Camp week.  Truman was only gone for 2 nights and 3 days.  But it's an eternity in my world.
