5/52 Photos of Me

Forever In Blue Jeans

"52 Weeks" is a meme that was created by Carin over at Forever in Blue Jeans. It's where moms finally get from behind the camera and into the spotlight. Since we are usually the ones snapping the photos, we tend to not be in as many. Join the challenge and post a picture or a few, as it were, of yourself with your family, or with some friends.

This week I have decided to put up some random pictures. I hope you decide to join because it doesn't matter which week you start in. Jump right in!

I met Debbie on our cruise in June. She's from Baltimore and has two daughters named Jaden and Kyla that became fast friends with my daughters, Braaten and Melanie. It was great getting to know her and her family and we may even one day go to visit them in Maryland once we move back.

This was a windy day at horse riding with Grant. We were watching the girls take their weekly lesson.

My friends, Jane and Leah, went to the annual Independence Day celebration with us that is held by the American Expats of Northwest England.

And lastly... how cute is this puppy? He is my friend, Liesl's, dog and his name is Marty. He looks like a stuffed animal, doesn't he? My kids love him!

Beautiful pictures of you! You look amazing and so full of love and life. My favorite picture is the one of you and Grant watching the girls at riding lesson. I love that dark stormy cloudy sky! I crave that here.

I think these are great. I've been trying to do this but just haven't posted any yet. It's very fun because Gabe likes to use the camera now..When a four year old behind the camera you never know what your going to get!

Thanks for visiting my blog, Carol.
I came over and I enjoyed your pictures. Sounds like you have a nice family and lot's of love from the Lord to share.

I am following so I'll be back. I'm in a real busy time of my life right now so I haven't been as loyal as I'd like to be, but I'll return especially if you comment.

Take care & have a great week,
