Shark Week Bread, S’mores, and Husky Fun

It’s Shark Week, aka one of the best weeks of the year! I don’t know what it is about Shark Week, but I just love it. I’m totally terrified of swimming in the ocean, and even more so after learning about sharks ­čśé

I had to celebrate all things sharks with bread, obviously. I made a challah shark and filled it with a buttery-cinnamon filling.

Hannah’s Graduation Party

Our family celebrated Hannah’s high school graduation, 18th birthday, and her and Josh’s engagement all in one day. Whew! It was such a fun celebration.

Also, Hannah’s decorating skills are on point. My parents’ backyard looked like a Pinterest board by the time she was done decorating.

Between Hannah’s friends, church family, and extended family from New York,┬ámy parents had 80 people at their house on Saturday. Though it was hot, humid, and stormy throughout the day, we didn’t let the weather stop us from having a great time.

Jimmy and I arrived a couple of hours early, and after I finished frosting cupcakes, I designated myself as the photographer for the day.

We ate Italian food, jumped on the trampoline, took turns holding┬ábabies, admired Hannah’s engagement ring, took a million pictures, and talked into the late evening.

I had a lot of extended family asking me to take their pictures, which made me so excited. My cousin had a baby in June, so I was beyond pumped to take her picture, feed her, and snuggle as much as possible.

The party ended with a bonfire and smore’s, the perfect ending to any party if you ask me ­čśë

All in all, it was a beautiful day full of spending time with loved ones and celebrating Hannah and the accomplishments she has achieved through Christ. Congrats, Hannah!
