Sunday Snaps--Crazy Week Edition

This week was the kind of busy that made my head start spinning every time I sat down to my planner. It was a really good and productive kind of busy, though, which made it so worth it to me.

Will and I switch off, and I was in charge of Family Home Evening on Monday night. We had Costco pizza and hot dogs for dinner and had a lesson in the car on our way out to my all-time new favorite photography location for an activity of "run around with daddy." I want to do a happy dance every time I think about the family I'm going to photograph there this Thursday evening. It's going to be awesome! But anyway, I wanted to check out the lighting and such and got a few shots of Magnet playing with the kids. My kids are so lucky to have such a playful, happy, strong, kind and loving dad. Happy Father's Day, Magnet! We love you!

Aside from the day-to-day busyness of motherhood, what kept me especially on the go this week were the three photoshoots I had, all of which are in the queue for a peek here on the blog. I'm still editing my cousin's wedding photos, though, so I definitely have some catching up to do!

We've had some blah weather, but luckily it hasn't stopped my kids from playing out back. They love our backyard, and I'm so grateful. All we have is a little mini-tramp and some odd and end yard toys, but they can entertain themselves for hours out there. Cuties.

Magson's speech is starting to take off. One of the things I picked up on this week was him singing the first line of "I am a Child of God" over and over again. He's been singing this mysterious song for weeks now and today I finally figured it out!

Maggie is just sweet to the core and so willing to help me with anything. Her imagination is soaring and I think she would love it if we could all just live her imaginary world all day long.

On Saturday Magnet's Aunt Julie and Grandma stopped by for a fun visit. My kids love them!

I hopped in a picture this evening. I wanted to get a snap of Magnolia in the gorgeous dress Aunt Julie brought by, but unfortunately she just wanted to get in her jammies and conk out. She sure looked cute at church today, though. Thanks, AJ!

Finally, I must give a Father's Day shout-out to my dad because he is simply the best of the best. A man full of integrity and honesty and complete selflessness, he is flawless in my eyes. A flood of happy and loving feelings always comes over me whenever I think of him. I love you, Dad!


  1. Fun pictures. I wish I could trust Ty to go play outside without running away, or across to the park by himself! I'm glad that you were busy and productive and hope that things slow down just a bit for you!

  2. So nice to see your lovely profile, and that dress really is beautiful; such a delicious shade of pink. Hope your shoot on Thursday goes well and that the weather cooperates.

  3. What a nice post :) Looks like you're busy but loving life!! Miss you guys!
    ps- I did get your comment this time. yay!!

  4. I'm loving your Sunday catch-up posts. I can't believe the amount of stuff you are able to get done in a week - and still looked pulled together and sane!

  5. That's so sweet. Love all their sweet faces. What color blue do you have on the wall on the second to the last picture? I love it!
