Weekend

The weekend was packed with sports and get togethers and next thing you know it’s over.

Q14A7538

Cole and all his buddies decided to do band. Let’s just say be happy this blog doesn’t come with sound. Hudson hides when he pulls out the trombone. I was hoping his guitar lessons would be enough but I guess not.

Q14A7540

Andy hung up my new mailbox on our side porch. Love it!! We were using our old mailbox that was just sitting on the ground. SLOWLY we are getting this house pulled together!

Lens Love

There is no doubt about it I am addicted to lenses.

Farm

We took a quick trip down to the farm this weekend

Q14A7285

It was so hot! I have to say I am starting to long for boots and sweaters and soup and pumpkins and fires and all things Fall

Q14A7292

But I do love Summer so I am not wishing away this time. Winter will be here before we know it and I it will be cold. Boo.

Q14A7293

Austin’s girlfriend came with us. She is so stinking cute.

Q14A7319

And Hud. This dog. The fave of the family by far. He has so much “swagger” according to the boys.

Q14A7333

So as much as I have loved having all the kids around I am enjoying the back to school routine and having time to grow my businesses and not be on such a crazy time crunch all the time. I am doing more freelance photography and just trying to grow myself in a way I haven’t done in 18 years.

It’s a good thing.

Q14A7339

Love him.:)

XC

Austin had an overnight in Ashland, Ohio this weekend so Andy and I got up early today to head out there.

Q14A7118

We didn’t tell him we were coming.

Q14A7124

The texts from the coach last night were so funny- be downstairs at 6 for movie, tape going on doors at 10.:)I have no idea what tape on doors means, the lacrosse team does not do that.

Q14A7139

So I took some candids before he knew we were there
Q14A7143

Austin is a kid who would never ask us to make an hour plus trek to his meet

Q14A7149

Q14A7151Q14A7154Q14A7157

Which makes showing up all that more fun

Q14A7173

It WAS SO HOT.

I felt sorry for these boys but they seemed to be doing ok

Q14A7192

Austin’s team has been doing well. 1st in the state so far.

Q14A7193Q14A7198Q14A7199

It’s hard having a Senior and knowing this is the last time for all this.

Q14A7006

And this little gem tucked away

Q14A7011Q14A7012Q14A7014Q14A7016Q14A7018

This dog would stay outside 24 hours if we would let him. And if someone would stay out and play with him-

Q14A7028Q14A7029

But it’s hot so no one is willing to play.

Happy Wednesday!
