June Recap...

We are halfway through the year already! Wow I can't believe it!

It has been a very VERY hot summer so far..106 degrees today..yeah. No fun!

But even with this warm weather I am trying to make lots of memories and still try to take lots of pictures to capture the little everyday moments. I've noticed I have been using my iPhone camera a lot more lately, mostly because it's a lot easier then lugging my DSLR around..but I sure love my Nikon!

Instagram is my new friend...well we have been friends for awhile but lately..we've been besties! lol

And instagram pictures and soo easy to add to my Project Life album. Iknow I have been bad about posting my pages, but I am proud of myself that I am actually (kinda) caught up. Hopefully I can get around to posting some pages soon.

So anyways I just wanted to share our month of June in photos...we took a few trips to the lake, listened to new music, read new books, played and played and played with Natalie, started eating better, went for nature walks, got crafty, farmer's market days, and trips to the mountains. It's been a good one!

Bath time.

Awesome book and a little green juice..been juicing a LOT!

Doggie haircut.

Silly faces.
She got a new dolly.

 My new favorite band!

I made Natalie a cute heart mobile for her room. She helped.

She tooked pictures of me this time. :)

 Painted little piggies.

Played dressup.

Went for a nature walk.

 Took a trip to the lake.

Had a wonderful Father's Day visiting with the in-laws in the mountains.

Watched the sunset on the way home.

Visited the Farmer's Market and got a deal on those pretty flowers.

Another lake trip.

 And got a little crafty with some glitter glue.

And her sweet little cousin gave her a Snow White dress that she wants to live in! lol..cute.
So you's has been a great month..busy and fun. I am so blessed and grateful.

It's June already?! and some backyard ideas..

We are getting closer and closer to summer and it is getting hotter and hotter every day here in southern Cali.

With these hot days I am dreaming of laying outside under a shady tree reading a book sipping on some ice cold water with a slice of lemon while Natalie runs around in the grass chasing the dog.'s all a dream right now beacuse our backyard needs some MAJOR help! I wish I could call up HGTV right now to come take over because I have no idea where to start! We basically have a 4x4 cemet slab and a whole bunch of dirt and weeds (which hubby just cut down, yes!).

So I have been having fun pinning lots of ideas on my "Future Backyard" board on Pinterest and probably driving my hubby crazy with all these ideas pouring into my little head. We have to start somewhere.

Here's a few ideas that I have been daydreaming of. :)

 (all of these images can be found HERE.)

So there you have it..this is our "one day" project and hopefully it will be our soon someday backyard!

I just feel bad that Natalie doesn't have much of a yard to play in. But she still loves being outside. 

This was her yesterday soaking up the sun...

So far she hasn't complained. It just takes time and lots of mulahh! Which we are working on! :)

And a little bit of encouargement from the bible to keep me going and remind me that it's all about baby steps, one thing at a time!

On a clear day..

Natalie is a sweet little girl.

On this clear sunny day, she posed for me..and I gave her a lollipop to say thanks. :)

I think she is really starting to love the camera more.

For awhile she would yell at me and tell me to put it

But I love taking pictures of her big beautiful blue eyes and capturing these little moments as she grows.

I can't believe she is 3 and a half! I wish time would slow down a little.

I thank God every day for her. :)
