some shots from da weekend

 We had a picnic in the backyard of our apartment complex
to congratulate the seniors on graduation coming up.

The weather was great, the food was good, 
and I attempted to learn some new Frisbee tricks
[the operative word being attempted].

our centerpieces

so many delicious pies!

our most festive backyard picnic attire

Grace and I got hungry...

so we hopped up on the tail gate and ate our hotdogs

and surveyed the party.

What a beauty.

one of my lovely residents!


On Saturday, my boss had a birthday party for his kids
Giselle (3)
and Evan IV (1).
But not just any party.
Oh no.
Princess and Pirate birthday party in the Park. 
[and yes, the above picture is my boss]

Check out that precious baby pirate.
[and his gold earring]

And last night, Alyssa and I
together with all of our dear teammates
went to the PBU Athletics banquet.

Glad I got to sit next to that girl,
because otherwise the lack of spoons to eat our mousse with
would have been unbearable.

gym visit
study date
final for night class
last Bible study of the semester
and gigantic sleepover

hope your weekend and your Monday are absolutely
