Amelia and I decided we needed a trip to the park. We've had a lot of really hot days here this summer, but this week is quite a bit cooler and much more enjoyable. I don't like 105 degrees. Isn't her shirt awesome!! We got that for her to wear when we announced our news to Mark's family. It suits her perfectly.
Amelia started Irish dancing in April and we are getting ready for her first competition over Labor Day weekend. We will be going out of town for it and my family all wanted to join us, so we rented a beach house and I'm so excited for the fun weekend it will surely be. She really loves Irish and I think that's what she plans to focus her energy on. I have to say she's picking it up a lot faster than I thought she would and it's so cute to watch.
Yesterday Mark and I celebrated four years of marriage. We've had our ups and downs like most couples, but I love that man so much and love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him. He does so much to provide for our family and works so hard to make sure I get to be a stay at home mom and pursue my passion for photography. If it weren't for that I wouldn't be able to volunteer so much at Amelia's school or go and visit my grandma as often. I couldn't have asked for a better father for my children... and I have to say I can't wait to see that man with a tiny baby in his arms again. Swoon. I'm so excited for all of the years we have ahead of us.
Today on the agenda... cleaning house. I know, such an awesome way to spend a Friday. Really though, this place needs it! We've got rain in the forecast for the weekend. I'm praying it holds off until after my photo shoot on Saturday so we don't have to reschedule again, but then I want it to pour!! I love summer rain.
