Friday Favs: Papa’s 80th Birthday

Happy Friday! Today has been a great and uneventful day — perfect for some summertime relaxation :) Graham & I went on a loooooong walk this morning with a friend, and now he has pretty much been snoozing every since!! Woohoo!! Yesterday I took him to a big field and practiced “Go Fetch”…but it sort of turned more into “Go Jump & Tumble & Miss!” haha!! If you didn’t check out the #instie video I posted, I highly recommend it for some laughs :)

Anyway, I wanted to go ahead and share some photos from my Papa’s 80th birthday last weekend! They aren’t all amazing or beautiful or awesome…but they are of my family & I sorta love them a lot :) 2014.7.13 Papa 80-1125_STOMP.jpgI had originally brought my camera to take senior pictures of my cousin Dave, but I decided to pull it out for a few photos of the actual party itself — and I am so glad I did! The first shot I got was obviously of the hubs flashing the peace sign..haha!

2014.7.13 Papa 80-1186_STOMP.jpgLove these two so much and am still so so thankful for the time we had together last weekend!! While it was crazy busy & involved lots of driving, it is always so great to see family.

This weekend is looking rather relaxing — and FUN!! Chris and I are going to the Tremont Ale Festival tomorrow afternoon, and I cannot WAIT to enjoy lots of different beers & ciders (especially my FAVORITE — Wyder’s Pear!!! Woohoo!!!). After a crazy busy week, nothing else sounds more fun that hanging out with my boo and sipping on some yummy drinks :)

Have a wonderful wonderful weekend!!!

Love love love,
