Project Life | Week 24

Somehow, I didn't take many photos throughout this week. Thankfully, I had a lot of shots from our weekend in California. This left side were photos of our time on the Del Mar beach on Saturday night.

I included an insert this week. The front was a photo taken at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. The back side has the park's map which Ryland absolutely loves to look at.

This last page is from Father's Day at the safari park. It was so fun to experience something new in beautiful California.

Project Life | Week 23

Kind of a week of mixed emotions this week! The best things of the week included the Mumford & Sons concert, Taylor's dance recital and water balloon fights on the driveway with neighbors.

I was the backstage mom for the third year in a row. I told myself that I wasn't going to do it again this year, but my help was really needed and I was happy to be involved. From the opening circle of prayer with the entire dance team to the very last dance, Taylor danced her heart out and had so much fun. My mom also came over to help me out a little over the weekend and came to the pool with us on Sunday. It was a treat to have her around. Earlier in the week, we had run into a group of motorcycle cops at a local pizza joint who offered to give my kids the experience of sitting on the motorcycles and checked out all of the gear. The boys loved it.

Project Life | Week 22

Swim lessons commenced this week! While Taylor and Landon immediately jumped in, Ryland was a little fearful of moving over to the deep end of the pool for lessons. He cried off and on but did great. Taylor and I also had a girls night where we had dinner of her choice, In N Out, and then attended her last Polished Pebbles meeting. Hank took the boys to their last Contenders meeting for a pool party on the same night.

Taylor had a dress rehearsal and photo shoot in her various dance costumes. Afterward, we went to dinner with our dance friends, Brayden and Jayme. Hank was a good sport and had multiple water balloon fights outside with the kids. They get such a kick out of throwing water balloons at us. We even have been to the pool a couple times; the kids could live there if I let them.

Project Life | Week 21

A great end to the school year... The kids preformed in their end-of-the-year program. The singing was so cute, and Taylor did excellent in her school play. I love the photo in this spread with one of her best buds, Ava, and their teacher, Miss Farhana. Landon also has started to tie his shoes without any asssistance.

In this side, I included their school program and photos taken on their very  last day of  school. I also included some of Landon's artwork  that was sent home with him. We ended the week with a trip to the mall (we never go there), ice cream with friends, and the purchase of our new family car!
