summa recap + favorite

Whatever Wednesday's topic this week is to share our favorite moment from this summer. This was quite the summer. We had a first birthday, a third birthday, and a thirtieth birthday. My sister got married. My mom finished chemo and kicked cancer's ass. There was a hilarious night where we chased an ice cream truck. I went to NYC. We hit up the beach and the Catskills. I got a new camera! There was some potty training fiascos. We went many many times to Dutch Wonderland. We kept ourselves busy doing things you do when you have young kids. How do you pick just one? This summer played man.

I will choose the wedding (apologies for the poor photo quality, as this was pre-camera). It was so nice to have all of the family together. Drinking and dancing and celebrating. My sister looked gorgeous and everything went perfectly. It was a great event if I do say so myself. And I think I have the right since I planned a sizable portion of it. Wink wink. You can read my wedding recaps here and here. For my favorite professional photos by Whitcomb Photography here's that post too. That was the biggest event of the summer, in the year of our Lord 2013, and so it's pretty much a no brainer. People marrying people is always a big deal. Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Sauder! Mrs. Sauder. 

I think I'll keep this blogging thing up. I love that I can look back and relive all these moments with my family and see how they've grown. Maybe someday they will read this and enjoy hearing of these many little moments that all add up to the best life one could ask for. Plus since I have a serious case of the mommy brains it's great to have this little corner of the interwebs to remind me what I did with my life. To document all that small stuff.
