on wednesday the weather changed, and the rain clothes came out. we went to a birthday party and had a potluck dinner with alexander's class at school. isabel, lucy and i hit the sales on thursday and came home with a couple of bags of summer clothes for the kids. isabel really loves shopping! (it's her coupland genes ;)). friday we went to a summer party at isabel's preschool, and alexander wanted to bake chocolate chip cookies. i'm hoping that he'll get the hang of it soon enough, and will start baking them by himself! the highlight of the week was the visit to oldemor (great grandmother), who is 93 but can still chase the kids around with her walker. every time we go there, the first thing the kids ask (as soon as afternoon tea is over) is, "when can we play tag?". lots of giggles, every time!
this week i went back to my starting point...simple layout, big photos, and text here and there. i'm really happy with it. after looking at last week's pages, i just felt they were a little too white. this week i used the pl kit midnight by the awesome liz of paislee press, and a single "simple white" template by tracy larsen. i love how it turned out, but then again, summer pictures always look great! i found it really difficult to choose photos, as i usually try to choose pictures which show what we did. this week, however, i just chose my favourites and wrote down what we did. maybe that's why i like this week so much, because i have way more everyday moments in my life than anything else.
i hope you had a great week! i'm linking up with the mom creative.
hugs, fiona xoxo
