During the month of July, I decided to do the July Photo a Day challenge. Here is the challenge list:
Day 1 is a self portrait and Day 2 is busy. I combined the two of them. Here I am busy with the boys leaving Splash Station- a water park in Fremont. It was SO HOT this month!!
Day 3- Best Part of My Day: The boys had their EIGHTH birthday party!!
Day 4- Fun: What's more fun than having lunch with Josh? Not too much!
Day 5- floor: On the floor with my super cute nephew Jack!!
Day 6-chair: In this heat what else is there to do than sit in a chair in a pool?!?!
Day 7-Garden: In a garden taking family pictures with Joe! He's the best!!
Day 8-lunch: (however I'm changing it to brunch) Having brunch with my family before they leave. Loved having them here to visit!
Day 9- BIG: Today we drove to Lincoln to visit Morrill Hall with some good friends. Awesome day!!
Day 10- favorite color: I don't really have one. I just like lots of colors! However sometimes I do say pink just because I have a house full of boys.
Day 11- letter: Sending out thank you letters from the boys.
Day 12- texture: Josh making home made granola bars. Lots of delicious texture in that bowl!
Day 13 I skipped. A really dear friend of mine's father passed away. His funeral was that day and I wasn't in a creative or picture taking mood...moving onto Day14- building: Here I am after the color run with the Omaha skyline behind me. SO MUCH FUN!!You can read more about it HERE if you are interested.
Day 15- finger: Whew-we! It's hot out! This is me wiping the sweat off my brow (with my fingers) after playing sand volleyball.Which is the first time I have ever played volleyball. It was a BLAST!!
Day 16- sign. Just a sign or two I saw carting the boys around today.
Day 17- addiction: This summer it's a nonfat iced chai tea latte! Mmmmmm!!
Day 18- plate: This plate makes me smile when I see it. It's Josh's plants vs zombie plate he painted earlier this year.
Day 19- animal/pet: Don't get totally grossed out but we have two pet rats. They are actually really good pets. Rats really do get a bad rep! Meet Steve. Hi Steve!!
Day 20- eyes: We seeeeeee you!
Day 21- 9 o'clock: Yahtzee with Zach!
Day 22 skipped.Not sure why. I just did....Day 23- mirror: Time to get back to working out!
Day 24- stranger: Lots of strangers at the pool today. What else is there to do when it 109 out?!?!?
Day 25- heart: Alex making a heart with his hands while waiting for the doctor. He had an ear infection. There was also some talk about a tonsillectomy but thankfully the doctor decided it wasn't necessary at this point! Whew!
Day 26- sunshine: Don't mind the sun too much today. It's about 15 degrees cooler than yesterday. Which puts us at 93!
Day 27- on the road: Driving on the newly paved road taking Alex to hip hop.
Day 28- cup.
That I painted with the lovely Kassie:
Day 29- last thing I bought: Make-up. Eyeliner to be more specific.
Day 30- calm: Strangely enough it is calm in the house right now so I am going to enjoy the moment and read. Woot! Love moments like these! Now if only I had an iced chai tea to go with this moment.....
Day 31- toothbrush. Yeah I totally skipped this one. Who cares about my boring toothbrush?!?! Besides me that is! Don't want my teeth to fall out. But honestly by this time I was ready for the photo a day challenge to end. :)
