Whirlwind.

Monday, April 2, 2012

This weekend was a doozy. That is certain.

Friday night, I was lounging a bit when I noticed how dreamy the light was. I was practically whimpering at the door looking out to our front yard, wishing I had someone to take pictures of. The air had a bit of bite to it, but Tony just told me to bring Ezra out, so I did.

Me oh my. So glad I listened.

Quite certain I can't stop staring at this picture. It's my desktop, my lock screen and my wallpaper.

Linking up with The Paper Mama's Photo Challenge again.

I wish I could have had a session scheduled, but still made use of it. :)

Saturday the weather played tricks with us, but I had so much fun with two of my scheduled shoots in the morning and rescheduled by the request of my afternoon session. Before I popped over over to a friend's baby shower, I grabbed a gift card at Target and got me a little something on sale, which I got to later wear out! After the shower, I got home to freshen up and then head out the door for my Dad's banquet with Tony and the boys. After dinner, we brought the boys over to my Mom's and then headed out for drinks with friends. We got to my Mom's just a little after 11:00 to collect our children. In the very near future, I think we'll have to start finding a baby sitter, instead of relying on family.
We're out! Sans bebes!

I just love Sunday mornings, bringing both boys into bed. Tony and Isaac had a little bit of wrestling match going on! Tony made the boys some chocolate chip pancakes and then we made our way to church.
The best part of waking up!Sunday mornings are for wrestling.

I played a bit of an April Fool's on facebook, with this status update "Tony and I can't believe it happened, but we're excited for the next phase of our lives in West Virginia!" Some quickly called it out as an April Fool's so I tried to keep it going, but I knew I couldn't "Tony has been considering a job offer in WV and Idaho. The offer just got upped for VW to cover relocation costs and, oh, who am I kidding. We'll live in MN till we die. :)"

I got to get in an amazing run on Sunday. I first set out for a 4.5 mile run, but extended it to 6 miles because I just felt that good. Hasn't happened in a long time! From there I quickly ran up to Anoka for my first senior session and then a family session with some close friends. 

After that we quickly jet off to my StepDad's birthday gathering!

Whew. 

Like I said, it was a whirlwind, but such a great weekend spent with a variety of quality friends and family.

Weekends always feel like a whirlwind to me! Looks like you guys had some great quality time though!

And those pictures of Ezra are fab!

Whirlwind for sure... but sounds like a fun one.

Love the pics of stinker butts. ;)

Glad you got to squeeze a date night in! It's always nice to have parents that can watch the babies, but I actually prefer someone come to our house and stay the night. We have 3 of our nieces on rotation who love to sit. None of them drive, so we pick them up Saturday afternoon, and then take them to church with us (all of them go to our church). We're able to stay out as long as we want without having to worry about them getting home late!

Holy moly I am exhusted just reading this! Now I call that making the most of each moment of the day. I smiled when I read about the choco chip pancakes - those were Jonathan's favorite weekend treat.

Love it! I realized lately that I'm really bad at getting my camera out and that I simply have been relying on my phone. That's a terrible habit and I need to stop it! Great pictures!
