Summer Snapshot

I simply did not post this summer.

I had no intentions of taking the summer off – I just did.

I had plenty of things to work on – not all of it was things I will share.

I focused on having fun with my family.

I thought I would share in photos some of those moments.

The first thing we did was institute ‘Date Night’.  Once a week Mom & Dad went out for dinner.  Girls loved the independence we enjoyed to reconnecting time.  I highly recommend this.  We made it a point to go to newer places we wanted to try.

Finally got the Mr. back up on a ladder to finish painting the house

We packed up and took a family trip to my happy place – the White Mountains

We spent a day at Mount Attitash riding the Alpine Slide.  I remember being there when I was 10. It was thrilling.

There is no way I would ever flip my sled!

Even though we did flip our sleds earning a dislocated knuckle and numerous skin burns

we make it out alive. 25-IMG_23151-IMG_2316 23-IMG_2307

Lulu is almost officially taller than Coco! Yikes!

I spent almost a week of my summer trying to lock down and control the wifi in my home – with not much luck. (Due to iPhones – if we had Androids this would be a lot easier!)

That is a whole other post!

Unfortunately, then this happened.
