Happy Humid-day!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July. Mine was spent pretty much like I’d spend any normal Sunday (did it feel like a Sunday to you too?) except that it ended with fireworks. And it was so humid that we all were sweating profusely the entire day. That part wasn’t my favorite. I did get a chance to take my siblings to the playground to goof off for a bit. 

Handsome Gavin. Side note: I took this while swinging! How talented am I? 

What happens when you give an 11 year-old the camera. Not bad, actually.

Cause we’re grown ups.

Sisters. She is the live version of Merida from Brave.

My handsome fella.

Have you tried this recently? It’s 100 times harder as an adult. In this photo I
make it look like I’m going to continue across but really I fell right after this. ha

In the 10 other versions of this photo, you can see up my skirt. Fail on the outfit choice, Nadine. 

I love these two and they are a constant reminder of how not ready I am for kids any time soon. 

That’s really the only reason I posted the photo.

Obviously the 4th wasn’t complete without Smores.
From the looks of some of these photos (and the 100 others that I’m not in), I’d have to say my photography skills are slightly improving. One of my 30 Before 30 goals is to by a DSLR camera and learn how to use it. Right now I’m using my beau’s Canon point and shoot. It does the job but I can’t wait to learn how to take truly beautiful photographs. 

So tell me, how did you spend your 4th of July?
Did it not really feel like a holiday to you either?

  • i need that marshmallow roasting contraption! 🙂

    • I have no idea what it’s actually for but I’m pretty sure my family uses it exclusively for marshmallow roasting. Get’s the job done, fast!

    • KCA

      It actually is for marshmallow (or any other food) roasting. It is a double tined bbq skewer. You can find them at places like Home Depot or Lowes, and sometimes Walmart. They come with little caps to cover the points when not in use.
      Also, I stole your pics of you and the kids. 🙂

  • I love swinging. No matter how old I get, there’s nothing like feeling the rush in your guts and the wind in your face of swinging as high as you can.

    • I totally agree. And these swings are extra tall so they feel like they are grown up sized. I used to walk to the park to swing on them as a kid and they are still fun now!

  • I love swinging, too! It just makes you feel like a silly kid again and all worries melt away!!!

    • Exactly. I wish there was a good park near my house. These swings are by my Dad’s house so I really only head up there on weekends. Plus it was so humid, we created our own breeze!

  • Oh my gosh, that looks like so much fun! Pretty sure I want to grab my hubby’s nephews and go swing immediately…somehow I feel like I need kids with me in order to not look like a crazy 🙂
    P.S. You and your manfriend are adorable.

    • You definitely wouldn’t look like a crazy. It’s fun at all ages! And thanks, my beau will be happy to hear that. Silly as it is, he loves when he gets the shoutout or occasional photo on my blog. I think it makes him feel famous lol. Silly boyfriend.

  • Just stumbled across your blog & I love all your pictures! Glad you were able to spend some time with your siblings! Me and my hubby love being silly like that and going to the park (without kiddos, since we don’t have any haha).

    I also am pining for a DSLR! I’ve been begging hubby for one, but just can’t find the nerve to shell out that amount of money for one yet. Here’s hoping we both get one by 30!!
