right in our own backyard

The past few weeks have been busy with random things- a wedding, a baby shower, a mall trip for school shopping, etc etc- plus there have been some crazy stormy days, mixed in with some steamy, too hot to even THINK about going outside days. So we haven’t had much time to just hang out in our backyard. But last night? We totally did, and I brought my camera along.


she refuses to make a normal face in pictures

she dressed herself.

grins on the swings

she's made of eyelashes and HAIR.

It was nice. And we’re finally at a stage where Audrey and Maggie kinda-sorta play together and I can just sit and watch. WOOHOO!

Hope you’re all enjoying this last month of summer!

    Maggie’s got the crazy face down! Looks like a fun evening. We need to get some sort of playset for our yard.

    Maggie is such a goofball. :-)

    Both girls are adorable!

    We have spent way too little time outdoors in the evenings lately – partly due to many of the same reasons: crappy weather type A, crappy weather type B, and Always. So. Busy! We spent so much time outside at the beginning of summer! I think it’s time to remedy that.

    Enjoy your August!
