Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #4!

Fri-yay! Weekly Recap #4!

Attention!! Its FRI-YAY! Another week is in the books and we are excited for the weekend! Not only does it mean rain (fingers crossed) but Sunday is Mother's Day and that is something to be excited for! We started out the week celebrating with the Gibbons family. If you haven't checked out their post, you should... seven beautiful, well behaved kids is reason enough to go check them out!  

This week we celebrated May the 4th (unofficial Star Wars Day for the uninitiated out there), by watching too much Star Wars. Ok, full disclosure, we watch too much Star Wars every day, thanks to the three miniature Jedi we have running around. In honor of May the 4th, we found this ridiculously awesome family shoot a couple weeks ago, and we figured this week was the perfect week to share it with you! How cute is that little BB-8?!

We've been having British television drama withdrawals since Downton Abbey ended a while ago, so this week we decided to get our binge-watch on and re-watch Sherlock. We are officially going on record to say...This. Show. Is. Awesome. Every time we watch this show, we go around scrutinizing people's shirt collars, fingernails, wrist watches, and shoe laces as we channel our inner Sherlock. Unfortunately, we haven't solved any crimes yet, but there's still time. We only finished re-watching Season 1. Don't be alarmed when, by the end of the third season, we will be able to look at your hair and what shoes you're wearing and know that you just came from Starbucks, ordered a Venti Caramel White Mocha with light Whipped Cream and an extra shot, and that you're having meatloaf for dinner at 6:12pm. 

Finally, we did our own little Mother's Day shoot this week. If you missed our true confession on Instagram you need to check it out. Don't let these photos fool you, these little angels are not fans of getting their photos taken. With photographers as parents they're just going to have to live with it...either that or they'll be discussing it with a therapist one day. 

 

Megan is truly the most amazing mom in the history of the planet. I'm not biased at all either. She spends every waking moment (and sometimes her non-waking moments too...hello, Barfpocalypse 2016. Yea, that happened.) serving, loving, caring, growing, teaching, feeding, hugging, kissing, band-aiding, tickling, nurturing, dressing, wiping, coaching, praying, and any other "-ing" you can think of with these three cute little bundles of chaos. There are days she's exhausted and is at the end of her rope, but she keeps going. How she does it, I'll never know. She's truly an astounding human being who loves her kids more than life itself and I'm honored to call her my wife. God is good for bringing her to me and I thank Him everyday. Our three kids are extremely blessed to have a mom who loves them as much as she does.

Hug your mother this weekend, and if you can't, hug a friend with kids, or if you have no friends with kids, hug a random mom at the store. Because, well, Mom's are awesome.

Cheers to Moms! Have a safe and happy weekend!
