Instagram… Take 37 (or something like that)

image
Abstract art or condensation on my water bottle…


image
New neighbors… we see deer in our back yard at least once a week and I don’t know that I will ever tire of it, though I might not end up ever planting anything back there which would be a bummer since having both a vegetable garden and a flower garden are on my life list.


image
We went to a water activity-themed birthday party and it was awesome! The grand finale was a super long slip and slide which was just the best!


image
There were also giant bubbles.


image
Friday night at the ice cream shop.


image
And after ice cream it was necessary to burn off a little steam at the fountain.


image
Haven’t heard this song for AGES but have heard it three times in the last month on The Coffee House station – you better up your game, XM. (at least it’s not something by Shawn Colvin – they love her, too, and I DO NOT)


image
A brief moment of brotherly love.


image
The covered bridge in Ada is a magical place.


image
How this is even comfortable, I don’t know.


image
Mumford & Sons on Pandora and feet up on the couch… perfect Friday night.


image
George agrees…


image
We visited the Farmer’s Market, we bought dill for making pickles. Jack clearly does not approve.


image
Peek-a-boo… someone likes to pop up when I am standing at the kitchen sink.


image
Saturday afternoon nap time… note the jeans and sweatshirt in JULY.


image
Jack’s new talent.


image
I so love it when they get along.


image
Date night with a stop at the Rockford Brewing Company… cider, raspberry ale and something very dark – all very good.


image
Hanging with some besties. Girls are a whole different deal than boys…


image
Liam’s birthday outing with his BFF, Alejandro… McDonald’s for lunch, Chuck E. Cheese’s for games and Krispy Kreme for donuts (instead of cake).


image
Just adding another “log” to the fire… it only took 3 hours to burn.


image
Playing catch with baby Ethan at Quinn and Chris’s summer house… we didn’t drop him even once 🙂


image
Nephew Mitch (who has a new radio show, BTW), by fire light.


image
I do just love that face.


image
Sun pickles… the best dill pickles EVER.


image
A cold, but gorgeous day at Duck Lake and Lake Michigan.


image
The personal trainer’s license plate (but of course)


image
Jack loves removing Lego heads and playing with just them… here, they face off with cars… we call this every day life.


image
Extreme close up.


image
My faithful companion.


image
The new IKEA catalog… swoon.


image
Driving to a friend’s house we happened upon a cat leading a string of ducks across the road… as our car approached, the cat turned around and walked back off the road and the ducks all turned to follow. What in the world?


image
File this one under “Can’t Possibly Be Comfortable”


image
I watch the VMAs… decided I was too old to be doing that because I continually exclaimed, “Are you kidding me?” but then Justin Timberlake performed (and reunited with ‘Nsync) and all was right for a moment. My favorite part of watching is also being on Twitter and reading snarky tweets aloud to Simon.


image
French macarons (or macaroons) brought to me fresh from Paris. Little bites of heaven. I had never had one before and my coworker fulfilled a life list item for me. So far, passionfruit with chocolate filling is my fave.

  1. Ikea has a catalog?

  2. 1) it’s been way too long since ice caught up on your blog. 2) I got way too excited that I could see part of your reflection in one of your photos – also too long since I’ve seen you. 3) jack is adorable w his bracelet. 4) raspberry ale? Yummo!

Have something to say about that? I'd love to hear from you!
