Down by the river.

Nathan and I went walking by the river the other day. We're trying to enjoy this nice weather before the heat knob is turned up aaand we don't have a house which really forces you to get out there! ha. And there are the weirdest trees here, cottonwoods, that litter tiny white fluffs everywhere. I keep calling it summer snow, because it flurries in the sky then coats the ground. We didn't have them in Birmingham, you know so they're weird.

Home.

 I went to Birmingham, a few weeks ago, but I haven't posted pics yet.
I had gotten so homesick and with all the stress of our house search, I couldn't get there fast enough. As always much fun was had...

Me and the bro.
We got matching tats. Somehow mine ended up being bigger...maybe cause someone changed theirs at the last minute? I dunno...
I also finally got my peace sign tattoo.
Me and the mom.
There was a little of this:
And a little of that:
Izzy! She climbed into my lap numerous times. She's so sweet.
My uncle and dad grilling out.

We went to see my dad at the shop. I was excited to finally see some of the things he's been working on. He built this cabinet!
FYI this machine will make you yawn when in use. You may need to click the picture to see why. My mom and I thought this was hilarious and my dad thought we were weird. Nothing has changed. haha
On Sunday afternoon, a tornado came through. The sirens kept going off and that's the cue to go out onto the front porch, right? I have become mildly obsessed with weather, something I got from my dad...apparently. There is nothing quite like a thunderstorm at my parents house.
The older I get the harder it is to be away from my family.

(I made Zac some tea in his favorite mug.)
