We had such a nice day today. We spent lots of time together relaxing and just hanging out.
We went to Costco in the afternoon to renew our membership and buy some tortilla chips and almond milk.
In the evening the sky was so amazing that we had to go outside and enjoy it. There was lightning and thunder and glorious colors and every now and then a few drops of rain would fall. There was the slightest breeze that broke the heat up just enough to make the evening outdoors perfect.
There are so many times where I catch myself marveling at the fact that I live in the gorgeous desert. I never would have imagined myself living in Arizona back in high school when I was living in my beloved rainy home of Washington but Arizona has become so special to me. I’m so thankful that I can appreciate the beauty of this state now.
I didn’t want to spend much time taking pictures because it was so nice to just be out there, but I did snap some that I really love.
These two were playing soccer. Payson’s really good at kicking the ball.
One of me and the ever-growing belly.
And I’m so excited that I took the time to gather everyone up for a quick family picture! My blog friend Mindy is the one who got me started on a weekly family picture project “way back” in 2008 and I’ve been meaning to pick it up again forever.
And today I did! I’m hoping that for the next 12 months I’ll remember to take a family picture every week!
Sierra and Payson spent the rest of the time we were outside sitting on this swing together watching the lightning.
It was so adorable how they were squealing and smiling and laughing and then at the end sitting there quietly cuddling together.
