This summer has been so crazy! I feel like it has truly flown by! I feel like just yesterday is was still winter and we were anticipating the busy summer. Once it got started, it was here and gone before we even blinked! This is the summer of the party... you will understand why in just a moment!~ :O)
To start things off... I went to the 40th birthday party of a really good friend that I used to work with. Andrea is such a great person, and her party was so much fun. I really enjoyed hanging with all my old friends from Trinity. Some of them, I have actually known for 10+ years!
However, where things got really hectic was with all the bridal showers that I went to. I went to a personal shower:a family Pampered Chef Bridal shower (which I had to say, I really enjoyed!):and the church shower :of my cousin Michelle. Let's just say... I am just about partied out!
Next, was Michelle's wedding. I was a little more than just a guest here, I was actually the photographer and the mother of one of the flower girls. Grace was pulled in a wagon by her cousin's, which was so cute! Let me just share this... the night of the rehearsal dinner, Grace and Hayden did wonderful! They were smiling... and laughing, and waving!
They did perfect! We were all a little skeptical, but it turned out perfect. So, the next day comes along and they were all dressed up and cute, and Grace, who was in desperate need of a nap, was still really good... however right before they went down the isle, my cousin Abby who was helping out with the children, noticed that Grace had her head down. Well, they thought that she was pouting because Hayden was taking the puffys in the wagon, however she wasn't pouting, she was asleep! It was so cute. So, as Jennifer and Nathan was pulling her down the isle, they must have hit a bump, because this is the look that I got when they were passing me in the isle! Priceless!!!

The next weekend after Matthew and Michelle's wedding we had another wedding. This was for the girl that I had originally been hired as the photographer, but then got snakes out of the job by a professional. Let's just say... everything that photographer did, I could do better. So... if you ever hear of anyone using Beach photography, let them know to stear clear! They are over priced, and the person that they were told would be doing the wedding didn't even show up... he sent his wife instead! Ok... so that was my one mean moment. Here are a few (and... when I say a few, I mean, a lot!) pics that I took from that wedding...
So... that brings us up to Grace's birthday party. I am going to finish that tomorrow. After that, I only have one more thing to talk about, then I will be completely caught up! Go figure! :) Here is a hint... ok, I will just say it! Grace is walking! YEAH!!!! :)
So... until tomorrow! Have a great night and a wonderful tomorrow!
