This & That

I know a lot of my posts lately have been focused on baby #5 and updates with that...and I feel like it's been a hot minute where I kinda did a rambling update post.

BUT!  Fear not!  I've got that for you today!  Lucky you!!

And truly, this is gonna be all over the place and a giant photo dump mostly cause I have a ton of pics and I've slacked on blogging and posting them.  HAHA!  LIFE HAS BEEN BUSY!

First off, I've had 2 births in the past week and that makes 10 births documented in the past 6 weeks or so. HOLY CATS.  So busy!! I've got EIGHT births booked between early August and early September and I am hoping and praying they don't overlap AT ALL!  HAHA!  So keep your fingers crossed for me that we luck out and don't have any overlappin' right as school is getting back in session...cause I sure hope I can document ALL OF THESE for these amazing families!!!

Earlier this week I took Annie to the pool and her favorite pool toy is my naturally here are a few snaps that this little lady captured:

Gosh isn't she a hoot?!?!  She kills me!  Speaking of, at the pool we got asked to go to lunch with Charlie and Giselle and Annie got to pick:

So duh! We went to MOD Pizza!

Man they love going out to lunch.  We actually were spoiled this week and got to go out twice -- with uncle Ben and my dad to IMOS earlier in the week too!

They really REALLY love cheese.  I totally order salad for them but hold the dressing and lettuce.  Yes, they just want a bowl of cheese. And God bless these employees for doing that for them!!

My sweet, adorable new niece Eliza came home from the NICU (she was hatched at 33 weeks 3 weeks ago!!) and I got to go over and take her newborn pics!  Patrick got some snuggles with her first and then I got to go over a few days later for her newborn snaps and I am obsessed with how they turned out!  Can't wait for the second 2019 kiddo to join her in November!!

Mike and my's mother/father's day gift from my parents was Cardinals tickets...the game when Albert Pujols was back for the first time in 8 years!  We were so stoked to go.

And I got serious goosebumps the ENTIRE GAME -- standing ovation for every at bat -- for a visiting player!  Gosh, STL is such a great sports town and was just wonderful to Albert.  One of my favorite games I've ever been too.  Probably second to game 6 in 2011.

On Friday this past week we got invited to Rosie's buddy Jack's house for a swim party.  Both Annie and Rosie got to go and it was chilly but so much fun!!  I had the GoPro out again and got some real gems I think. haha!

The girls had a BLAST and I think NeeNee did too!  Rosie loved the diving board and Annie did it once and was like yeah no, not doing that again.  HAHA!  But it was a fun morning before the torrential rain came pouring in...again.  I am SO OVER this wet weather!

On Saturday one of my shoots got canceled (poop!) and so did Patrick's baseball game (I swear he's played like 2 games all season!!) so we headed to my uncle Chuck's memorial.  It was WET.  But the kids LOVED getting to use their umbrellas in the rain.

Yeah, they love the rain way more than I do.  Haha!!

BUT!  After nap time on Saturday, the skies opened up (finally!!), I was able to get my evening shoot in, and the kids got some playtime outside before dinner and baths.

Totally obsessed with the pics of the big kids in front of Clark's tree too...somehow we had magic and they were all smiling and looking! MAGICCCCCCC!!! WOOT!!  Definitely my new phone screensaver.  

This may be 'meh' but I'm excited about it: the kids new backpacks (from Pottery Barn Kids) came in the mail this week and I'm LOVING them!  They haven't seen them yet but are gonna flip when they do!  EEKKKK!!

AHHHHH!  Rosie had her final dance practice this week and she's got her big recital later today (I'm sure I'll have a separate post on that...bringing my big camera and lens!  But we snapped a few pics for her last dance class to celebrate...she had such a great year and cannot wait for her recital and class to start again next year!

Okie dokie, that's about all I've got...but, I've got some random photos and videos for ya too that are worth dumping here and you taking a look at cause I'm not at all biased but they are freaking adorable!!!

Have a good one my friends...happy {almost} new work week!!
