Happy Friday friends! I guess that's it. Another August in the books. And just like that summer is spent. : / We filled the past week with celebrating, working, playing, babysitting, building, and eating way too much birthday cake. What have you been up to?

Link up your posts and have an awesome Labor Day weekend!

Happy Friday all! We are nearing the end of August - where did summer go?!!- and we are gearing up for back to school. I know most of the US is back already, but we start after Labor Day. It still seems too early for me! This summer has been busy and it's gone by in a blink. I've only been to the pool a few times, we never made it to the beach (for fun rather then work, that is) and we have hardly even had any backyard BBQ's. Seems like such a waste of warm weather, sadly. And as my kids are growing faster than I can stand, I really miss those carefree summer evenings, after dinner family walks, and chasing down the ice cream man. My life has become far too inundated with adulting, and it stinks.

We did manage to have some fun this week though and I'm thankful we grabbed the opportunity when we had it. Little Miss has been begging to ride the ferris wheel since it was erected last spring. I thought it was going to be a permanent fixture on the waterfront, but I saw an instagram post last week that said otherwise - we had only two days left to ride! So, we surprised the kiddos with a trip across the river on the ferry, and a ride on the ferris wheel. It was tons of fun! I'm not one for heights, and, had Little Miss not been so persistent, I probably would never have ridden it. But I'm thrilled that we all went and shared the memory. Pics below are all iPhone.

Hey friends! Happy Friday to you! I am running behind this week (as usual, but worse, ha ha) and I will have to come back tomorrow with some pics. I wanted to get the linky up though, so here is my pitiful post.

We have 7 birthdays in our family between July and August, plus they are two of the busiest months of sessions for me. We've had all that going on, plus car repairs, homeschool planning, etc., etc. So there is it. My juggling arms are tired and I'm dropping balls. Anyway, I will be back in the morning with a few photos. Sorry for the blank space in the mean time. I hope your madness is better managed than mine!

Update: I finally uploaded some iPhone pics from the week. Hubs and I had plans to go on the tall ship sunset cruise in Norfolk last weekend. Unfortunately, our excursion was rained out. So, we headed to the Waterside Marketplace for dinner instead. I snapped a few pics of the ferris wheel while we were downtown. Little Miss has been dying to go for a ride on it since it arrived several months ago. Her birthday is coming up, so we plan to surprise her with tickets. In other news, our oldest is now behind the wheel. Yikes! How was your week?

Welcome to Friday! I have been up to my eyeballs in work lately, as is typical in summer months. But Thursday hubs and I took a day to spend having fun with the kiddos. We surprised them with a trip to the water park. We spent the better part of the day slipping and sliding our way through unforgettable summer memories, while climbing umpteen stairs and spending wayyyy too much on food and parking. But, it's as close as we'll get to a vacation this year, so it was time and money well spent. And we ALL had a blast! There was no bickering, yelling, whining, and no work. It was such a treat!

I turned off and locked up my phone after we entered the park, so I don't have many pics to share. But I really needed a day to unplug and focus on family. Here are the few shots I took as we started our adventure:

What summer adventures have you enjoyed?

Happy Friday friends! Here we are heading into August, and summer seems to be slipping away. Last week I walked into the craft store and was bombarded with pumpkin spice everything. There were Halloween decorations everywhere, and clearance bins full of summer decor. This week, even the grocery stores have climbed on board with owls and pumpkins all over the place. Seems like we wish our lives away in the name of a buck.

Meanwhile, I'm still on the beach several times a week. Working that is, I have yet to take a beach day for leisure this year. : / This week's recap includes beach pics taken before or after client sessions, and a few iPhone shots from my niece's birthday party, which was tons of fun.

What have you been up to this week? Please link up your posts below and share. Have a super weekend!
