A Month of Saturdays: April 2015

Saturday, May 30, 2015

I spent quite a bit of time working on blogging things last night! We're talking six posts drafted, a summer reading list built (coming next Monday, I think), a few more posts sketched, and some poking around on your blogs too. It was really great and it made me realize that I've got a lot to share with you in June!!!!

Before May is over, I need to share the pictures from a Saturday in April! Normally, the pictures come from every Saturday in the given month, but this time around I slacked and only took pictures on the very first one in April.

The day was gorgeous. We played dominoes and had our coffee how we like it (none for my sister, hot for my Mom, and iced for me). We puttered around in the backyard. We probably watched some tv. And then my brother and sister had some of their friends over for a little fireside dinner complete with hot dogs and s'mores.

The hula hoop picture is one of my favorites. As winter was giving way to spring, my sister (the girl who goes after what she wants) decided that she needed a hula hoop. When you're a teenager, you do things like google world records so that you can try to break them. As it turns out, the record for hula hooping is ridiculous. Soooo, my brother and sister decided to keep track of and beat their own records.Every time we turned around, they were hula hooping trying to get just a few more seconds. My brother managed to hula hoop for one hour and five minutes, without stopping. Beat that!

What are you up to this Saturday? 


  1. I believe hula hooping for any extended amount of time now would nearly kill me haha. I definitely don't think I could do it for an hour and five minutes!

  2. Such beautiful pictures! Thank you for sharing! Oh, my...I ever could manage to do a hula hoop. I can actually keep it up for a little while on Wii Fitness, but not for very long! I am just not coordinated. :) God bless you, sweet friend. :)

  3. HULA HOOPING FOR AN HOUR?! I'm so impressed. And I can't wait to read all your posts coming up! It sounds like that Saturday in April was lovely :)

  4. Whaaaat?!? An hour and five minutes?! That's seriously impressive…even if I could keep the hula hoop up for that long (which I totally can't), my muscles would die LONG before an hour was up. Good for your brother! I love all of these pictures…you guys do such fun things!

  5. WOW! That is a lot of hula hooping! I don't know if I've ever even made it a minute, haha!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
