Have you seen Just Go With it? When the hairdresser says that? It's funny.

Holy where have I been?! This blog has got put on the back burner these past couple weeks. I started photography and it's been insanely busy!! I have had 5 sessions this week and one tomorrow. I am LOVING it. I might not be amazing but people have been saying such supportive things to me! It's so exciting expanding my talents. I don't even feel like it's work and it's weird when i'm in the middle of a shoot, I just feel like I know what to do. It makes me comfortable and be able to fully enjoy it! You can go view all my photos on Facebook, and "like" the group while your there! Or go follow my Blog. I've been doing mostly back to school photos for people and I love doing kids! Next step, family pictures. I have start somewhere right?!

Anyways, besides photography we have been spending a ton of family time together. Just Dust, me and the girls. We took a weekend last minute trip to Edmonton! We haven't been on any holidays this summer and it kind of sucked so we decided to go there! We booked a hotel and spent 3 days shopping and playing. We took the kids to Galaxyland too, they loved it. Kyla wanted to go on all the huge scary rides! She was tall enough to go on some rides where I thought she's get scared but she loved them! The twins did great too! We did A LOT of shopping. It felt AWESOME. I was totally rejuvenated! Retail therapy 3 days in a row.

This weekend Dustin actually ended up having it off again, so we took them to the Summers End festival down at Mac Island. Man we have been good parents lately eh? I always used to feel inadequate because i'm not the mom to take my kids to everything, everyday. Nopers. I've learned to accept it though and it's totally ok! I'm only one person and honestly, I don't care about it anymore. I still feel like super mom when my kids are dressed and the dishes are done! As long as their happy, right?!

What else. Kyla starts KINDERGARTEN on Tuesday! Holy mother. I swear I just had her and now she has somehow turned into mini me and is the most popular girl on the block. She is gone all day playing with kids! I was kind of paranoid at first. Dustin was worse. Shh. But i've gotten more comfortable with letting her leave the house. Ha. He still looks out the window every 15 seconds to make sure she's ok. It's pretty cute.

I am pretty lucky with my husband. I was a little stressed out with being out of the normal routine and how messy and behind the house was. Laundry was way behind and our room was a disaster. So last night I climbed into bed while Dustin said he'd tidy up the room. I zonked of course and he was up until 1am cleaning! Best. Husband. Ever. Oh speaking of husband, it was his birthday last week! Since he has been working so hard, like 24 days in a row hard, I decided to pamper him for his bday. I booked him an hour massage and a facial. ha. I know a facial?! But he wanted one! I told him I wanted to go get one a while ago and he was like, "what? I want one!" and brought it up a few times. I learned facial massage in hair school and would always practice on him, and he always loved it. So I surprised him and he loved it. Don't judge until you've had one! We also went out for dinner with Kimball and Becky and went back to their house for cake and games. It was a ton of fun! So he got pretty spoiled this birthday. Mines next month so i'm expecting it to be amazing. Big gifts and everything. It's all about the material things.

Ok enough writing. Here are some jumbled pics, enjoy!

Edmonton and Galaxyland!

Holy look at the twins faces. Hilarious.

Tell me she isn't the cutest thing you have ever seen?!

The end of the day. Seriously. Passed. Out. I was dying laughing. He had to carry them all the way to our room on the second floor at the end of the hall! ha

Out for dinner with our little-big fam!

Swimmin at the hotel! Jayci fell running and hit her head pretty hard. Twice. So I took the twins and Laken back to bed.

Check out those eyes.
I forgot to say we took Dustin fishing the day of his bday. It sucked. I felt bad. The fish would not bite and Dustin NEVER has bad fishing days. Oh well!

Birthday Evening!

Work it

 Summers End Festival!

 The end.
