Improvising and Beating the Heat

Another day, another picture from our zoo!

I was practicing archery in the yard the other evening and Jimmy ran to our garage to do something. A few minutes later, he came out with a homemade target crafted from insulation and wood. Now I don’t have to shoot Amazon boxes as a target!! (more…)

Hello! I found more time to blog. Score.

I got a cute text from Jimmy on Tuesday morning and it made me smile so big. Don’t you love text messages like that?!

Jimmy’s birthday was on Saturday and I bought us tickets to the Pirates game. We had a blast! We started the evening just walking around Pittsburgh aimlessly, then we had dinner at Hyde Park (a steak house on the North Shore), and finished the night watching the Pirates and fireworks. It was such a lovely evening with a lovely boy. 🙂

Sunday was a blast as well. It was 90* in Pittsburgh, so after church my family + Jimmy and his brother hopped in our pool. We played “silent polo” which is Marco Polo without talking! We also played with Nick & Jimmy’s hair while a thunderstorm rolled in.After sufficient hair-playing we headed out to eat and then back to church. Perfect day!

I was drinking from my water bottle the other day and thinking that the slogan on it was so right…Amen? Amen!
