Catch the Moment 2018 ~ Week 35

Luckily, we had our family for a few more days, and got to spend most of the week with them. Here are a bunch of photos from our outings and fun together!

Mon, Aug 27 ~ Monday, we decided to go bowling! It was a lot of fun. Homer had a great time and even got a strike!

Allister really loved it, too. He seemed so excited to carry the bowling balls, and after he threw one, he’d go back to the ball return and excitedly announce which one he would choose next. “Now, the red one!”

We played a full game, ate some pizza, and played in the arcade, too. It was a great day!

Catch the Moment 2018 ~ Week 34

This week started out with smoke filling the air, from the rampant wildfires to the East and North of us. These fires seem more and more common each year, and honestly, it just weighs on me so much thinking about the potential implications of what this could mean for our future. The air quality index was anywhere from 190 – 220, rated worse than the air in some of the world’s most polluted cities, like Beijing. Headlines read Breathing Seattleā€™s air right now is like smoking 7 cigarettes.

Photos showing the thickness of the smoke were unreal. I just don’t ever want this to be our new normal. It’s so sad and scary.

Luckily, we got some rain, things calmed down some, and the air quality improved. Best of all, we got some awesome visitors, and had some awesome celebrations! So the week improved greatly during the last half! Here are the photos ~

Mon, Aug 20 ~ the skies turned yellow from the smoke and the sun and its reflection look really red. It was eerie.

Luckily, these two cute fellas were there to entertain me and take my mind off the smoke-pocalypse.

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 24

This was the week of double photos! I got a bit off track when choosing photos, and long story short, I ended up with more photos than usual. Bonus photos, if you will! Anyway, it was a good week, for the most part. Summer has arrived! It’s getting warmer and sunnier, and there are a mere four days of school left for Homer. Exciting! And now for the photos ~

Mon, June 11 ~ This little guy has been enjoying car rides way more than he used to! It’s so cute how amped up he gets, often giving many glances over to the car as I take him on walks each day. Ashton walks along, then looks at the car, then at me, as if to say, “Are we going??” He was happy the answer was yes on Monday when I brought him with us to go pick up Joe from work. They looked so cute together when Ashton just jumped into Homer’s lap!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 19

Hi everyone! This was a fun week, with a lot of variety of photos and experiences. The weather has also been really warm and sunny, so it’s finally Spring-y and even Summery out lately! It’s pretty nice, especially after the long, cold winter we had. I mean, I know we don’t get ten feet of snow like some places, but holy cow it was grey and chilly for such a long time. I’m really enjoying wearing tank tops and shorts these days. It’s awesome! On to the photos!

Mon, May 7 ~ I went for TWO walks on Monday, and actually made it to 10,000 steps that day. It was awesome! I loved walking by the water with a friend. We had a great time, and I got this awesome shot!
