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 :) I 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!
It was great having all of the family together (well, most of us!!) in addition to seeing old friends too!And of course, Graham-a-lam stole the spotlight quite a few times as well..Papa with 2 of 3 Allely boys! (Missed you Joe & Grace!!!)Uncle Neal workin’ hard at the grill…not quite sure what Uncle John is doing :P Haha!!!Dad’s request…:P Love my parents!!
Allie was QUITE the champion diver! (I mean, jumper..)
And then, after a long morning of swimming, tossing the football around, and playing cards — it was time for PIE!!!
Love this one of Nana watching him blow out the candles :)
The fancy binoculars were a HIT!!
My mom & her sister!
Haha, Aunt Bekah threatened to steal Graham away…he’ll do that to ya :P #puppylove
How gorgeous is Allie?!?! :)
I took some quick photos of Nana & Papa before putting my camera away & enjoying the day…this one is one of my favorites :)
Haha wish I knew what Papa said to make her laugh here!!
Love 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,
