A New Challenge!

I was cruising around Pinterest (if you haven't checked out this site, do it, it's quite neat) and I stumbled across a pin of this list...a list of 10 Can't Miss Photos to Take Each Month

It seems like they meant it to go in a scrapbook or some such nonsense.  I'm going to aim for all ten each month.  Since this Friday is the start of July that seems like a great time to start so be prepared for some "Can't Miss Photo" posts! 

Here is the List for July!

Farm fields
Family reunions
Camping activities
Fun in the sun
• Water fights
• Sunbathing
• Pool time
• People boating
• Swimming lessons
A concert in the park
Girls playing Hula-hoop
Ice-cream or snow cones
Watermelon ready to serve
Fourth of July celebrations
• Firework displays large and small
• Parades
• People wearing red, white and blue
• Flags flying
• Military personnel in full regalia
A boy holding a worm, frog or bug

Oooooo super challenge would be to get all the additional bullet photos as well!

Weekend Wackiness

See I promised I'd update more!  

So after that crazy spring how on earth can there be more???  Well guess what.  There's more!

This past weekend had all kinds of wackiness planned.  

First there was a picnic with the boyfriend's Masonic Lodge.  

It was great to hang out and relax with his friends and family.  We've been running here and there so often lately that it was good to sit for a minute.  

Course being me, I didn't get to sit for long.  I had to pop in the car and go directly to a bachelorette party for my friend Missy.  Do not pass go, do not collect $200.  

And shenanigans ensued.  

me n the bride lady!
 Missy is getting married in Cancun, Mexico in a few short weeks...and you can see she's already working on her base tan...and I am not.  

We danced the night away at the casino.  We rock the party that rocks the party.  

So what were you up to this weekend?

Oh hey I have a blog...


anyone still out there?  so hey, I turned 30 and dropped off the face of the blog-world.   many apologies.

It's been quite the spring so far...and tomorrow is the beginning of summer *phew* where has the spring gone????  (prepare yourself for the longest update evaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr)

it started with us walking for a cure to MS
One Small Step for Mom
then some shenanigans with the boyfriend's fraternity

it was their annual alumni softball game.  they all had fun.  (can you tell?)
do these pics really need captions...I feel that "shenanigans" kinda covers it :op
then there was a bachelorette party

then I turned 30!  (but you've already heard about that)

then Meg turned 30!

then there was a recital 

yep.  dancin Irish style again.
then Lauren and Jose got married

the ladies!

then the Irish invaded Cape Cod
Kevin loves the beach

since it's the rugby world cup this year there is a nice long break between the end of the season and the beginning of training camp.  luckily that means the whole family gets to visit the States.  they rented a lovely house on the Cape for a week and I drove out there to visit and meet my little Irish nephew!

proud Dad and Mum
sunset walks on the beach...awwwwww

and since the boyfriend is kinda awesome he drove out too.  he spent the week with the National Guard then road-tripped to the Cape for a walk on the beach. 

then the Irish invaded a local pub
since Kimmi and Mike are visiting from Ireland and so many people love them (and wanted to meet wee Kevin) it made a lot of sense to gather everyone in one place for an evening.  the owner of the pub was so very happy we chose his establishment...the Irish are good for business haha.

then Jenny and Frank got married

the boyfriend and I roadtripped to Buffalo, NY for my cousin Jenny's wedding.  8 hours in a car there and back and we still like each other.  :o)  we arrived at 5 am on Saturday, slept about six hours, got showered and changed and went to the wedding. 
cocktails and cousins!
he's so suave my man

soooooooooooooo that's kinda what I've been up to...not a lot goin on right?  what were you up to this spring?  any big plans for summer???  (I have lots of plans, and I will update more often!!!)
