Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 30

Mon, July 23 ~ Monday was water park day! After visiting with Mama T in the morning, we headed on over. At first I just thought we were heading to a little splash pad / spray park, but once we got there, I realized it was a full-on water park and I hadn’t even brought my swimsuit. So I ran to Target and got a new one that I really love! Then I was able to get into the 4 ft wading pool with Homer, and ride the kiddie water slides, and it was a ton of fun. I loved snapping some shots of the kids. Here’s one of Winnie!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 29

Catch the Moment – ROAD TRIP EDITION!!! Epic Road Trip 2018 continues… Have you all ever gone on a long road trip? When I was a kid, probably about 11 years old (I think?), my whole family piled into our minivan and drove from San Antonio, Texas, to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Then we spent a couple weeks there with my grandmother, and then drove back. I remember the drive out way better than the drive back. When we stopped in Texarkana, we stopped in a store and I saw Jelly Belly jelly beans for the very first time and fell in love with them! I also remember thinking Memphis was pretty. I have a lot of fond memories from the trip, and my hope for Homer was that he’d have a lot of great memories from this trip for himself, too. I’m excited I got to see a lot of states I’d never been to before, and excited it all went as well as it did!

Mon, July 16 ~ On Monday, we drove from Spokane, straight through Idaho, into Montana, and stopped in Billings. Idaho and Montana had so many beautiful trees! And I saw 4 bald eagles in Montana while driving!! This was the sunset view from the hotel once we stopped for the night.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 28

Hello, hello! I apologize for having a longer hiatus than intended! I’m back and will begin the catch up process for posting the last several weeks of Catch the Moment! The first is July 9-15, which turned out to be a week of mostly Homer pictures. 🙂 It only makes sense, he is my favorite subject, and my favorite little guy! On to the photos…

Mon, July 9 ~ This kid cracks me up!! He tried all the combinations he could think of for wearing his clothes. One foot through each arm hole of his shirt, his shorts on his head is what is pictured here:

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 27

Here we are, week 27!

Summer has been in full swing lately. We’ve had some ice cream outings, watermelon, most of my coffee I’ve been drinking has been iced… XD We’ve run the air conditioner a bunch, and have driven with windows open a lot, too. Our home windows are almost always open, fans going, and we’ve been reading, watching tv, playing video games, and watching movies all in the middle of the day. I love Summer! Here are our summery photos from the week ~

Mon, July 2 ~ Homer decided out of the blue that he really needed a “whole lot” of Solo cups to stack. “Like, at LEAST a hundred, Mommy!” It was pretty inexpensive for this set of them ($4.50 for 84 cups), and he has already spent about two hours total playing with them, so… Maybe it was an ok idea? I feel a little bad about the plastic purchase, honestly, but then again we have a lot of plastic items at home. I’m not sure why these cups bring more guilt than any of the other plastic items we have purchased. (Maybe it’s just that I’ve been reading more about waste reduction lately, so it’s making me rethink a lot about what we buy and what we use. This probably won’t be a repeat purchase, but also, they should last a long time as our play cups, so that’s good…)

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 26

Summer Vacation is in full swing, and apparently my brain is in full vacation mode, because I somehow missed TWO days this week! I have no idea how that happened. Actually, I was feeling a little down and out, under the weather, and just overall crappy on the days I missed photos, so I guess I do know how that happened. Anyway, this week is mostly portraits and plants, check it out ~

Mon, June 25 ~ Homer and I had a really fun day! We went to Homegrown for our favorite spicy egg and avocado sandwiches, then Molly Moon’s for ice cream, then Half Price Books. It was awesome!
