Snapshots of Summer

Summer needs to slow WAY down in my opinion. I am not looking forward to when Jack isolation begins again. I am trying to enjoy these sunny days and not think too far into the future. We have certainly filled our days up with lots of travel and fun. Here are some snapshots of what we've been up to (in no particular order):

Trip to Utah (wedding and vacation)

Missoula Farmer's Market (literally my most favorite thing about Missoula)

Celebrating 6 years!

Showing Jack off to my friend of 20+ years, Emily

Enjoying our lilacs

Jack hanging out with his best friend, Gary

Eyepatch - not that Jack loves it, but I will always remember this summer as "eyepatch summer" where Jack has to spend every other day wearing an eyepatch for 3 hours. It is strengthening a weak eye. He sure is cute, isn't he?

Trip to Leavenworth. Here is where we stayed... I am still dreaming of it!

Hanging out with friends

My friend for life, Heather, came all the way from Virginia for a visit!

Lots of time in Missoula

With Deaette

Favorite family shot to date!

Trying out the new swing at Grandma and Grandpa's

4th of July in Butte, America

We also just got back from a family reunion in Wyoming! It was so much fun to hang out with Jon's mother's side of the family (Winterholler). I got to meet some of Jon's aunts and uncles that I have never met before and many of his cousins. He has such a big family (and this was only half!). We spent lots of time talking and generally eating a whole bunch, which is definitely something the Winterholler's are known for. Jon loves to cook and he gets that from his mom's side. Here are some of my favorite shots:

First time in the water

Boat ride!

Sweet Grandma Alys

Loving the swing


Some of Jon's siblings

Famous Winterholler breakfast

Growing up, Jon always said he wanted to be mayor of Warren, Montana. It's right by the Montana/Wyoming border and if you blink, you'd miss it. When we were driving through there last weekend, I got this great shot. I would totally vote for you, babe!

Here's to 2 more months of summer! I'm praying for lots of fun, health, and special memories made.
Pin It!
