Week 31

We got real rain on Monday! I loved just hearing it coming down and the sound of cars driving by through the puddles. Our new (replaced) library opened and I couldn't wait to visit. It's gorgeous! And Mr. Logan celebrated his 6th birthday with a pool party at his Aunt Sue's. 



Rode my bike to the park and back before these beauties opened up 
and blessed us with sweet, sweet rain.



Too cool for Brother's shoes.



Library selfie. 
I may have to donate to the library so I can get my name on one of these pretty tiles.



If you're looking for me, I'll be here.



Art in their jammies.



My boys, checking out the view from Aunt Sue's beautiful backyard.



This Birthday fish spent most of the day in the pool with all his friends.



Happy Birthday!

Fresh, juicy summer peach. Yum!

Week 30

Another busy yet fun week on the Logan and Paisley show. Managed to get them out for TWO walks and we had a sleepover too. I found some time to do a Procreate beginner series that was fun and informative. 


Crazy time in the morning.



Went for a walk around the neighborhood. 



This girl and that face 🥰



My Intergalactic art piece in Procreate.



Miss Cleo on the patio table, in my business.



Fresh cut deserves a selfie. 
I had about three inches taken off and it feels so much better.



Snug as bugs in a rug.



We didn't feed them but these ducks followed the kids all the way around the pond.



We got a few sprinkles Sunday.

Week 29

It was a busy week hanging out with these babies for three days versus my usual two. They keep me moving and wear me out. Worth it!



I take my eyes off them for one second and they're sneaking out back with a yogurt to share.



Hanging out on the front porch.



We're pretend camping.



Bailee waiting for some popsicle drops.



She calls them "copicals".



Messy and yummy.



Afternoon tea with my girl.



Saturday night dinner.
Grilled burgers with caramelized onions, swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce, mustard, and tots.

Week 28

As I add these photos, I think I may need to rename this project the "Logan and Paisley Show." They're just so adorable I can't stop myself. I brought out my big-girl camera this week and I'm happy I did. 



Morning yogurt facial, of course.



My heart!



Still waking up here.



A moment of cooperation and sweetness. 



He's on top of the world!



Early morning light and shadow fun.



I got them out of the house for a walk. 
One loves to explore and doesn't want to leave the house.




This is one of the many cute houses in their neighborhood.



She's living her best life.


Three generations. 
The older ones talk about work ALL. THE. TIME.



Analog art for calming the nerves.
Sharpie and Crayola markers.

Week 27

Continuing on with my birthday celebration. CynCyn spent the whole week with us. She got to see some friends, visit the boys' offices, spend quality time with the 4T's, go out to brunch, lunch, multiple dinners, day trip around the bay, wine tasting, and binge-watch Ted Lasso. We all enjoyed her visit and miss her already. 

It was the best birthday week ever!



Good morning Hubs and Dr. CynCyn.
Time to pack up camp and go home.

Week 26

While the world burns…Oh, I mean let me get this out of the way. 

I made this banner for my July Facebook cover photo. I like to change them up every month even if it’s the only thing I post and this one needed to be shared. I also set up a fundraiser on Facebook for Planned Parenthood for my birthday. It ends on the 16th and I’m hoping to get $500 that I plan to match.


 



In the meantime, I had a wonderful 60th birthday celebration. 

Camping, boating, tubing, mimosas, food, drinks, music, family, fun, and a “hitchhiker” we picked up from the shore. I had no idea who the woman was for a few seconds and I want to always remember seeing her, waving champagne bottles, and smiling at us…our Dr. CynCyn flew out from Florida to surprise me and spend the week with us. Excellent job family! I love you all, past the sky.

Family ❤️






It was as fun as it looks!
It was a challenge to get sharp focus of these priceless faces from a moving boat,
still, I'm so glad I brought my camera. 



The perfect birthday weather.
