Well, here’s the last of my “Week in the Life” pictures. I got so many during the week, that we just kind of took it easy on the weekend. Didn’t take pictures of everything, just some of the things that stood out:
I was not feeling good all day, so Ben spent time with the girls. Here he’s holding up the “door” (as Kaylia calls it) on the piano, which she loves. She always wants to see the hammers moving when she plays the keys:
Even though it was a beautiful day, the girls watched a video, special treat when Mommy is sick:
Ben convinced me to sit outside in the afternoon because it was such a beautiful day:
Kaylia exploring the great outdoors:
Watching a video on Youtube. This is how we survive “Hair-Combing Time” with Anika:
On Sunday I was feeling better, so we spent some time outside as a family. Ben raked up a big leaf pile, and I had visions of adorable fall pictures in my head. Kaylia was not impressed with this vision:
So Anika went solo:
And Kaylia smiled whenever she wasn’t forced near the leaves:
It was another really beautiful fall day!
Ben played basketball with Anika:
We had lunch at the lodge:
Then we napped and left camp to go visit friends in Niverville:
This was the first time we had Kaylia facing forward in her carseat. Yay, she’s finally 22 pounds! She was very happy about the change, even though it doesn’t show in this picture:
And I forgot to take any pictures when we were out with friends! We just had a good time.
And since then I’ve been enjoying not taking pictures! I’m really glad that I did this project for a week, and I love having all the pictures that we took last week, but there is also something to be said for just living life, and enjoying the moment, without always rushing for the camera!
