Ten on Ten (sort of)- October 2013

Linking up with A Bit of Sunshine

I love the idea of this Ten on Ten challenge. I mean I LOVE it. I did really great for the most part. I did add two from yesterday. Hope they don't kick me out of the link up! Hehe!

Today was pretty much a normal day. I had coffee, we ate, we played, we visited Lucas' school for their annual book parade... Can you guess which book his class picked?

Outdoor Play

 I have come to learn that if you want great photos of your kids you don't need to plan. At all. As a matter of fact, just take your camera out into the yard and sit right in the middle of play time. You might just be amazed. I always get much better shots this way than if I try to pose them and create an elaborate set up.

Oh, can you tell someone is enjoying her gymnastics classes?

State Fair

We have had the best little "staycation" this week. Cag took a week off of work and we took it day by day. It was so nice to be able to sleep until we woke up and do whatever we felt like doing that day. We got some things crossed off of our to do list and we had a few fun outings. Last night we took advantage of the State Fair. The kids had an absolute blast. There is something about the rides, music, and fried food...

I hope everyone is having an amazing fall so far.

My blog has been quite neglected the last few months. I promise I do have legitimate reasons, but I will not core you with them. I have three children at three various stages in life and boy have I enjoyed having this laid back summer with them.

We went to the beach, which was amazing. It was Paisley's first trip and she loved it so much that she has mentioned going back quite a few times. Luckily we have another short trip planned in a few months. We have swam our little hearts out until the rain hit about two weeks ago. It has poured and we have had to spend more time than we like inside.

I started my very own photography business! I am super excited about it. Who doesn't want to LOVE what they do for a living? I swore I would not go back to work until Paisley started kindergarten, but I just needed this for myself. It's great too. I will admit that this is the main reason that my blog has lacked so badly. All of my free "internet" time has gone straight to editing pictures (which I am very thankful for). :) Here is my photography blog, I am still working on my website: Enchanted Photography

Now we have only two weeks left in this summer and we head back to school! We are hoping to cram as many fun activities as we can into the next two weeks. One of which will be signing up for fall baseball! Oh, and in case you missed it in my Project 52 post for a few weeks ago, Paisley is signed up for gymnastics! Yay for us!

I have several home improvement projects coming up, so stay tuned. I want to document before and after pictures here. This Saturday I am going to attempt board and batten on my hall bathroom- by MYSELF. I hope my husband does not kill me by the time this is over!

Stay tuned!

The Most Laid Back 4th of July Ever!

I'm a few days late, but I honestly do not have much to say about this years 4th of July. We had big plans to head to the lake and let the kids play on a giant water slide while eating some amazing food with family and friends... but none of that happened. Instead, it rained ALL. DAY. It has rained for a week straight here and the 4th was no exception. I made a trip to Hobby Lobby with my mom and then went to the grocery store alone to get the ingredients for frito pies since there was no way to cook out. I did make a double chocolate Coca Cola cake for the first time and it was by far the best cake I have ever made. True Story. :) The rain let up just enough right after dark for us to go play in the drive way (the ground is a sopping mess) and watch some of the neighbors fireworks. We broke out the sparklers and took some pictures. 

The kids did not even wear their 4th of July attire because it was just a lazy, do nothing day... but they did put it on to head to my grandparents for another 4th of July cookout on Saturday. It rained SO hard the entire time so we just all sat under the awning and ate. I did not get any pictures of all the cute kiddos due to the rain and trying keep all of them contained. Maybe next year we will have some beautiful weather...
