weekend adventures {in pictures}

this weekend was C.R.A.Z.Y. -really just because i took over 600 photos. i’m not even exaggerating.

we had an adventure to a rose garden with some dear friends. it was great to get to spend a couple of hours outside with the people we’re going to miss soon.  the roses weren’t out yet… but we took a bunch of pictures…

we decided that since none of us can afford professional photographs taken, we’d take them of each other!

{note, Husbuddy and i don’t really need photos of us… but a few of our dear friends have had a baby in the past year… so we were here to help! :)}

none of us claim to be that good at photography(although we’re all trying to learn!)…

our philosophy is to just take a million of photos and a couple will turn out alright…


then the girls had fun together. i love these two so very much. just thinking of leaving right now makes me short of breath and start to cry! 🙁 so i don’t think about it. o, tear, why is change such a bittersweet thing?

{friends, don’t hate me for putting this one on here…please talk to me again… at least before we leave… 😉 hee hee}

then it was the guys turn. we’re so proud of you guys for  finishing 3 long years of school!! good work boys!

bawhahah. this part  of you three peaking around the tree was so funny. you guys are goofs. so alike. so smart. yet so silly.

even the babies worked it. 🙂

then the next day i got out my camera again for this cute family::

this little chunker is freaking adorable. their family is so beautiful and i love them to pieces. we’re going to miss you too!

{Husbuddy met Matt the first day of classes here at Princeton and they’ve been buds ever since.}

the next day i got out my camera again… it was time for this one year old’s party!

he’s the last of those three little boys to turn 1, yet he’s the first to be walking around 🙂

it was the perfect evening for a party.

the weather was great and the decorations festive.

and baby’s beautiful momma was ready to celebrate:

the other important guests were ready to celebrate too:

as i mentioned in a previous post… we had a very hungry Caterpillar cake for the little man:

didn’t Jenna do an awesome job with the fondant?!

he mostly enjoyed it…

he just wasn’t too happy about  being dirty for too long:

ha! i love his face.

it was a beautiful but very busy weekend.

to say the least…

dear guests who are coming to stay with us next weekend for graduation,

i have yet to start the cleaning, so i appologize ahead of time for the state our apartment will be in…

sometimes living life is more important than cleaning… right?
