A Picture a day for 365 days...a year's worth of fun!
I hope you have as much fun seeing a peek into my week as I am posting about it!


Today we drove 3 hours North to drop Colin off at Camp Candlelight! He was so excited! A whole week away having fun! It was a lonely and quiet ride home for me and Ryan!

Monday~143/365 Monday I got to watch this cutie! She is a new member of the WCHS coach's kids club..Tori is her name and she is 7 weeks old! I loved being able to snuggle and love on her!

Tuesday Baby Z and mom Crystal came over for a dip in the pool! How cute is that frog floatie?!
Wednesday~145/365 Wednesday Brendan & I headed over to Stacey's house for coffee (or in my case, tea) time. Lots of fun with friends hanging out! The kids ran through the sprinkler and also took a dip in the pool.

Thursday I was invited to come and watch a dress rehearsal for a dance recital. The dance recital is Saturday, but since I had to go and get Colin from camp I couldn't go. I was excited to see Payton (above) & Teagan (below) dance their hearts out! Once upon a time I was a dancer and since I have 2 boys...well you know!


Friday was Brendan's last day as an only child! We let him pick his restaurant of choice for dinner...IHOP it is! And what a deal as kids eat free 4-10pm! Who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?!
Saturday~148/365 Today's the day...we become a family of 4 again! I sure missed Colin but he had a blast! I can't wait to share more about his fun time at Camp Candlelight!

This is what Sara says on her blog about Project 365...
"I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way! "

Well said Sara...thanks for letting me tag along!
Join in with Sara...It's not to late to join the fun!

Did he get older or is that just me? I see you filled your days with other kids to fill the Colin void. I miss the baby stage. I can't wait to hear more about Colin's time at camp. How fun for him.

Stacy said...

You kept busy all week:)

Those boys love some IHOP,don't they?

Hope Ryan has a great father's Day:)

sara said...

that frog floatie is so cute....they have the neatest things now that I don't have small children any more!!

Can't wait to hear about colin's camp experience. My kids always loved going to camp and looked forward to it every summer!!

Isn't it nice to get some one-on-one time with your children?

My boys left this morning for church camp...10 hours away! Molly is getting to spend the week at her dad's as an only child. There'll be no living with her when she gets back here! LOL

Bridget said...

Kyle would eat every meal at IHOP if he could ;)

Glad Colin is back and had a great time at camp!!

The Bug said...

Those little dancers were too cute! I'm glad Colin had fun at camp - & that you guys had some two on one time with Brendan. Now I think I'm going to contemplate French Toast for dinner.

Lori @ The Davidson Den said...

Camp Candlelight sounds neat. Where is it??

Oh, man. We adore breakfast for supper. And my kids think IHOP is awesome. This is because their Nana used to take them there. Only, SHE would take them for lunch!!!!

Alicia said...

What? Kids eat from from 4-10??? LOL!!

Those are great pics, and I love the one with the baby in the pool!! So cute!!

And by the way, I received the book! I can't wait to start reading it tonight!

Jen said...

So glad Collin had fun at camp. Can't wait to hear more.
IHOP is a great place for a supper of any kind! Yum!

Stephanie said...

I LOVE IHOP!!!!!!! and when you have 4 kids anywhere that lets them eat free is WONDERFUL!!!!

Can't wait to hear all about camp and oh my what a cute baby!

rita said...

Camp, IHOP, babies, dancers, pool fun, and great dads--the best!
How grateful we can be for those who truly reflect the Heavenly Father's love.

Lisa said...

I bet you are glad Colin is back, Brendan probably missed his big brother.
I miss those baby stages, I always cuddle the ones I have to x-ray, those are the only babies I see these days. I bet you enjoyed yourself having a little girl around. Nice pic of Ryan and the boys, he looks like he is doing well on his weight loss, I will have to pop over to his blog and see how he is doing.

Elizabeth said...

Camp Candlelight sounds like a very fun and special place!

RaD said...

I just realized when I popped by here yesterday I meant to come back and leave a comment, sorry!

I'll bet you were glad to get your boy back! It's so good for them to go and do things like that on their own, but you just can't help but miss them!

Jules said...

I bet he had so many stories from his week at camp.It looks like you had plenty of other little ones around to fill your days.

Tori said...

First off, that baby has the greatest name!! :)
Love the frg floaty and who wouldn't want to dance if you got to be a Pink Lady!
So glad you had some great one on one time with Brendan and that Colin had a super time. Can't wait to hear more about it!!
Have a super week!
