milestones and memories

So, my mom was right in laughing....but I think we're at a place where I can pause and catch my breath!
The past 2 weeks have been overloaded with big activities.  Here's a peek at where we've been:

First we had Mainstage production, which was a One Act Festival this year.  The week prior to the performance was full of rehearsals and productions and finally parties and more parties.....such fun!
on the way to dress rehearsal....

 For one of her roles, Maggie played the part of Ricki Zi....an overly zealous auditioner!



After Mainstage was over and the curtain closed on this year's production it was time to get ready for Prom.  We had a bunch of the girls over to the house to do make up and hair and then we hosted a fancy schmancy dinner for everyone....it was a wonderful night of fun and dancing....
there was so much make-up it was incredible!

getting ready....and texting friends while getting ready...it's a entirely new generation!
 I found this potato in the bag that I was washing for baked potatoes...I told the girls it was a sign that someone would have romance....

all the girls in their glory....it had been raining all day and it stopped just in time for photos!




 John and I were asked to chaperone and photograph the prom...we took over 700 photos...whew!


 this was near the end when we (meaning John and I) were ready to be heading home....

Oh and I can't forget my boy...he's had baseball games scattered in among all these big events.  So far, this season his team is 9 and 1....he's having so much fun!  I love watching him play!



It's been a fun two weeks...full of milestones and memories.  Now I'm ready for some normal...anybody got some of that!?!

Awesome photos of Maggie performing in the play. Your girls look amazing in their formal prom gowns - my goodness Maggie and McKenzie look so beautiful and so very grown up! You are doing a wonderful job and you and john look so cute while on chaperone/camera duty. No normal around here; only five full days of school left so lots of rushing before the summer fun begins! Hope you find a bit of time for yourself this week.

Wow you have all been very busy! Just looking at all your high-energy photos has brought on the need for a cup of tea... If you're coming up on the school holidays, do enjoy the different pace.

Looks like it's all good at your house. The kids will remember each and every moment...all the driving to practices and games, all the "come on over to our house" moments, all the photos documenting each milestone.

all. of. it.

your efforts will be well rewarded. He'll make sure of that. xoxo
