Summer Update Part 1

Though summer is officially not over (I know this because the pool is still open), it feels like it's over because a) my mom is back to work, b) my husband, who has never in the entire six years that we have known each other, made an ill comment about my appearance, recently said to me, "you need a pedicure," and c) yesterday on facebook I read talk of Honeycrisp apple picking.

So in my mind, summer is over. OVER.

And guess what, the last event I blogged about was Mother's Day.

It's safe to say that according to my blog, summer came and went with nothing to show for it.

And that's pretty much true. Except that I just downloaded (or uploaded, I don't know the difference) 350+ pictures off the camera, all of which captured memories from Summer 2012.

And that is why you, my fair-weathered fan, will be receiving this little update that I like to call, "Summer Update Part 1." You might realize that this title is awfully creative. And by awfully creative, I mean awful. That's because I have three small children, one of whom has been sucking the life out of me, literally, which includes all of my creative brain cells. You might also realize that this blog post title implies there will be more than one part to the summer update. And that is also true. But I make no guarantees, people. Did you read the part about my cute little life sucker? At the rate she is eating, she might just consume me whole before I ever get a chance to add part 2. So you've been warned. Oh, and what the title doesn't tell you, but you should know, is that this update will be wordless. Because I don't have time for words. She sucked those out of me as well.

But I digress. Allow me to get this show on the road. Without further ado, I give you, Part 1.

Until next time . .


  1. You had me at Honeycrisp apple picking. Please tell me where I can get some of that deliciousness fresh off a tree.

    p.s. Love and miss you!

    1. Have you been to Lynd's Fruit Farm in Pataskala?

  2. The fact that your blog post was quite hilarious and totally you comforts me - because she obviously hasn't suck all the life out of you.

    I dont like apples, but I am seeing fall themed stuff sooo I agree summer is over. Buh-bye horribly hot summer!
