52 Week Challenge - 9 of 52: Can YOU "bend and snap"?...

We have had a few non-stop weeks and are looking forward to a few more coming up! I did get my computer issues solved...moving all of our space-hogging movies to an external hard drive. And now the fun can begin again!

In June, my in-laws came for a visit. Their visit was two-fold: First, to see the grandkids (of course) and Second, to see the Lakers beat the Orlando Magic in the NBA Finals (pictures to follow).

Of course, no visit to Orlando would be complete without a little Disney fun! We went to Epcot since that is not a place they can easily visit living on the west coast. We just went for the afternoon and evening and it was great.

Grandma Tammy knows how to jump right in on the fun!


We did get one group shot that I almost didn't post since it is so hard to get everyone looking and smiling; not to mention my pose is reminiscent of the "bend and snap";

but hey, I got in the picture! On Thursday they headed to California for Brady's dance recital, so we spent the final morning at Disney's Animal Kingdom.
You won't see any pictures from this day because a week of:
not enough sleep + ice cream and candy from Papa + 95 degrees + 90 percent humidity = THREE.CRANKY.KIDS
Been there?
But still....All in all it was a great week!!
More updates from Florida soon!

*********************************************************************

52 Weeks is a year long challenge for YOU to be in a picture once a week for 52 weeks. Moms are typically the ones behind the camera, this is OUR chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family.

So, get yourself in the picture every week for 52 Weeks. Be in a picture with one or more or your children and post your "family photo" on your blog every Thursday - don't forget to list your post on Mr. Linky on Carin's blog!

Hi Kristin, I miss you. I got your message and I really want to talk. Been crazy- dr.s, Jake's bday, 4th of July preparations, plus niece visiting, and lots of kids's stuff. I know you know what busy really means, but I will call you. More pictures please. That is my only way of seeing you all. Hope you had a great vacation and that everyone feels healthy. I love you.
