week in iphone pics

And when I saw week, I definitely don't mean last week.  I mean like three weeks ago.  The to-do list is semi long right now, and when I'm not working I haven't had a real desire to sit in front of the computer and edit photos/write posts.  I'm crossing my fingers that it all slows down a bit after this coming weekend, but I don't think it will.  Which is unfortunate, because I have a lot on my mind.

Anyway, here are some iphone photos from the week we were in Georgia (May 6th - May 12th).  Going through them all made me want to go back right now.  Especially since my mom is currently there with my sister (jealous.  definitely).  But thankfully we do have a trip planned for next month.  Hooray!  Oh and I apologize for the photo overload in advance.  Apparently beach = a million photos.


Ryann acted like a princess or something, and demanded that papa juggle for her.  Thankfully she's cute.  We spent the morning at the beach and Ryann and Papa tried to dig a whole to China or something.  And seriously one of the cutest things, Ryann dancing to Papa's guitar playing.  The next picture is Ry sporting some dress-up heels courtesy of my mom's friend Patty.  Coloring outside, a nice dinner, more coloring outside with Grammy, and a kid that seemed like she'd never go to bed.


My mom had to drop Papa off at the airport for a 7am flight.  When she got back we went on a walk and stopped at a cafe for some breakfast.  Not a bad way to start the morning.  We spent the next hour playing at the park and checking out the pier.  After nap we made our way to the beach.  It was pretty overcast with storms creeping up all around, but Ryann didn't mind.  Oh and of course I think her favorite part of going to the beach is getting sprayed off when the house when we come home.  Why oh why she likes getting blasted by ice cold water I'll never know.


Ryann hopped in the shower with me, and then refused to get out.  Which I've discovered is the best way to give myself a chance to get ready.  We spent the morning doing a little shopping, and Ryann of course came away with quite the haul from Old Navy.  Side note, I showed her the cowboy hat, her response, "I don't want a BOY hat!"  Ok my love, cowgirl hat.  Sorry!  The afternoon was spent, of course, at the beach.  The big floppy hat didn't stay put as well as I hoped, but the cuteness was worth it.  The tide had been so high the night before so we found all sorts of things on the beach, including a tire.  Ryann spent an absurd amount of time running through the puddle around the tire.  Post dinner we made another trip to the ice cream shop.  Mmmm peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream.  And I had a hard time washing the wee one's hair that night, simply because her curls in Georgia are too cute.


Apparently I calmed down a bit with the picture taking on Thursday :o).  We spent the morning at the beach, and Ryann continued to kill me with her cuteness.  My child is obviously better dressed than me on the regular, and looked like quite the vacation goddess.  Oh and Ryann was incredibly confused by the guy sunbathing on the beach.  I swear she must have thought he was dead or something.


Time to head home, which was of course bittersweet.  Yeah for seeing daddy, boo on leaving the beach.  We had to leave by 6:45am, and I pretty much grabbed Ryann out of bed and through clothes on her before strapping her into the car.  She was a wee bit out of it.  Thank goodness for the play area in the Nashville airport.  Ryann 100% wore herself out climbing on everything, and slept the entire way from Nashville to Kansas City.  She was definitely happy to be home that afternoon.


Chris had to  work Thursday night, so we finally got to see him on Friday.  Reunited and it felt so good :o).  Ryann's Great Grandma stopped by with a little gift, and that little gift ended up plastered all over my arm.  And just a cute picture of my little grocery shopper.


Ryann and I went to the gym Saturday morning and texted Chris before heading home.  That was his response... Lets just say it isn't normal for a tank to be driving around by our house.  We had to wake Ryann up from nap to head to my sister's graduation party, and she pretty much looked like that the entire drive.  The very last picture is probably one of my favorites of our little family.  I think it definitely captures our true personalities.  And my favorite part of it might be Ryann's little foot poking up behind the seat.  Not sure why :o).

Whew!  Ok.  One week down, two to go.  I'm hoping to catch up on my iphone pictures this week, and maybe next week I'll tackle all my project 366 photos (sort of dreading it, and not loving the project anymore :o(.  Then MAYBE I'll actual draft a meaningful post.  Maybe :o).

Ryann has the best expressions on her face.

On a side note, how do you manage to take such good iPhone pictures? Most of mine are blurry or too dark.

MommaBird - The best iphone pics come from the same places you get the best quality photos from a regular camera... in areas with a lot of natural light :). I do get several blurry pictures, but I just take another or don't post that one.
