2 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans

********************52 Weeks********************
52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. We are always the ones behind the camera, this is YOUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. We are glad you are joining this challenge. More importantly your family will really enjoy having you in the picture. Thanks for playing along! Oh, you can just jump in now with 1 of 52, you're not getting off that easy! Now go take a picture!**************************************

First of all, I quickly realized last week, that there is no way I am going to be able to look at EVERYONES 52 wk posts. Sorry- I'll do my best to make my rounds. I also realized I jumped on this bandwagon at the perfect time, on my bday weekend! I manage to score many pictures of me and the kids/hubby/family. We went back to my parents house (on the other side of our state). It had been 1 1/2 years since we'd been there last. (We've seen my parents many times in-between that.)

We had to wait until mid-afternoon for Daddy to come home. Here we are not so patiently waiting for him! John was likely running around, terrorizing the house :)

A 'watermelon' DQ ice cream cake..YUMMY! I happen to love this picture. Maybe it's because each kid is doing their own thing..that makes them each so special.
Maybe this was the highlight of the trip, not that seeing my parents, sister and being at home wasn't.. seeing my G'ma. 87 years old. She was equally thrilled to see some of her great grandchild, as they/me were to see her.

4 generations- my gma, my mom, me, my kidsWe FINALLY got to see my lil sisters apt. My 4 kids are a great form of b.control for her (besides the fact that she's not yet married) :-)
Our your mailbox- we made copies of this one! :)Me and him- I may or may not be standing on my tip-toes. He's 6'7". I'm 5'6"ish
okay.. maybe I am :)

** I am scheduling this post ahead of time, because my Thursday will be busy. So if I don't get my post linked.. feel free to do it for me.. please! thanks!! :)
