Future Photographer?

After we picked apples last weekend Iz asked if she could take some pictures with my camera by herself. When I uploaded the photos to my laptop this is what I found...Enjoy :)

LOVE that girl!

Apple Picking

After Iz's soccer game Saturday morning we decided to take advantage of the nice day and go grab some apples. I love that I have pictures from EVERY year of doing this with my 2 favorite people.

Iz had her first soccer game this Saturday morning. Super fun to watch all those kiddos run around and try and figure out which goal was their's, which teammate to kick to and where, exactly, they should go next. Adorable!

First things first. Warm-up.
A couple laps around the field...

...and some jumping jacks!

Team huddle pre-game :)

Time to PLAY!

A quick break on the sidelines.

Our beautiful girl :)

Very fun! I'm so glad that Iz wants to try all these new things. We're already talking about signing up for BASKETBALL!!!! :)

Summer Fun: Funtown!

We headed to Funtown on the 2nd to celebrate Iz's first week of school and check another item off our list. It ended up being a beautiful day and the place was practically deserted :) I expected we'd be there a couple hours but, after a chance meeting with an old co-worker and his kids which gave us someone to hang with, we ended up there ALL day! 6+ hours and it was a BLAST!

Pictures speak louder than words and I know you're just here for the pics so...ENJOY!

10 Years

I can remember exactly where I was 10 years ago today. I remember what I was doing when they announced that the first plane had hit the World Trade Center. I had the day off from work and I watched the second plane hit live and I watched both towers fall. It was one of the scariest things I have ever seen in my life.

Today is a beautiful day. 

The sky is blue, the sun is shining and I am spending every second of it with my two favorite people. It will be a normal Sunday around the L house but I know that I'll be hugging Iz a little tighter and holding Hubby's hand a little longer....

Never forget

We had a visitor to our great state last weekend..."Hurricane" Irene. Not as bad as we expected though we did lose power for about 30 hours, Autie D didn't have power for 3 days, and there was a lot of branches that came down. Other places got it a LOT worse (big shout out to my buddy G in Vermont who can't even get to her HOUSE because the road is washed out! Love you!).

No power for more than a day. This is what we did...

A little coloring.

A lot of napping.

Some tunes.

A WHOLE book! (really good, btw!)

This one's hard to see but a pretty good size branch came down in the road right in front of our house but there were guys there within a couple hours with chainsaws to get it out of the way!

We survived with minimal damage. The wind finally brought down a branch that's been hanging off a tree over our driveway for more than a year but we had moved the vehicles in anticipation of it coming down so all is well up here at the L house :)
