Goings on

I feel like I haven’t posted a real blog post in a while, so here goes…

The weekend before last was crazy busy. I had an Easter egg hunt (that I was an organizer of) on Saturday morning, a neighborhood party (that I was supposed to be helping out with) Saturday night, then a day’s worth of photography on Sunday. Busy, busy, busy.

The Easter egg hunt went great. We had about 200 kids, and all proceeds went to the March of Dimes. The weather was nice, and even though we didn’t have enough eggs, really, everyone had a great time.


The boys had fun playing with a portable microphone I borrowed from a friend:


Later that evening was a Candyland-themed fundraiser for our neighborhood park. I had volunteered to photograph people outside the “Gingerbread House”, but the weather went from gorgeous in the morning to freezing and ominous in the evening. Suffice it to say, no one wanted their picture taken, and after the boys whined at me for an hour and a half, we left. I dropped them off at Granny and Grandpa’s in advance of my photo day on Sunday.

Sunday was spent photographing seven of our triplet families. It was meant to be spring pictures, but it was, oh, 40 degrees. But at least it was sunny! I spent all day at the park, and had a great time. I was really nervous about doing this, but it went much better than I could have hoped! Here are some of my favorites from the day:

So that was fun, but exhausting.

And then last week, George became mobile again. Woo hoo! He’s still doing a bit of limping, but at least we were able to send the peg leg back.

This weekend was pretty busy too. Though I can’t seem to remember exactly what we did. There was a family lunch involved on Saturday, at Panera. The only thing I can say about that is, what crazy kids don’t like grilled cheese?!? (I am guessing you can figure out the answer to that.)

And then yesterday was the boys’ school fundraiser. I was asked to be the official photographer, but I got a VIP ticket out of it, so I consider that a good deal! It was very nice.

The only problem was, I didn’t get home until 11. The boys were staying with Granny & Grandpa since I was gone so much of yesterday at the event, and since I was called in for jury duty today, I had to leave the house at the crack of dawn, drive to G&G’s, pick up the boys, drive across town to school, then get back downtown to make it to court for 8:30. Ugh. I’m tired now. And it was cold and gray today, which just makes everything yuckier.

Fingers crossed I don’t get called back tomorrow, but we’ll see. I don’t find out until 5:30 the evening before. So ridiculous.

Looking forward to Wednesday – Tee and I are going to Cirque du Soleil! I’m so excited, I’ve always wanted to go. Yippee! And this weekend is a baby shower for Mary Catherine, and possibly a fun play date with friends, and maybe more triplet photos, and a St. Patrick’s Day race on Sunday that a friend roped me into. I just wish I liked Guinness. Ah well, it’ll be fun anyway!

Oh, and related to one of my last posts – I’ve been drinking smoothies every morning, and I’m really liking them. A bunch of spinach, a random assortment of frozen berries and fruit, some almond milk and a bit of greek yogurt. Yum!

  1. I love all of the great photos you took! Have a wonderful time at Cirque du Soleil! Good luck in your St. Patrick’s Day race.


  2. I love reading your blog for lots of reasons, but one is to get a peek into the mind of an extrovert. 🙂 Just the listing of your weekend events makes me shudder and look for a rock to crawl under. I need long stretches at home to make it through busy events! But you’re getting lots more accomplished than I ever will in a weekend!


    1. George is an introvert, too. I never thought of myself as an extrovert (I can definitely be shy) but I guess I’m definitely NOT an introvert. 🙂
