Week in the Life | Wednesday Pages 2016

Week in the Life is one of the memory keeping projects that I do every year. I take photos, then (slowly) add text and put together an album.

If I do the pages during the week I can get it all doen much faster but this year I waited to start printing photos and things took a little longer.

These are my Wednesday spreads of this year.

I left the pockets above this photo of Avinash empty and just glued a chipboard piece on top. 

I glued a matching circle chipboard piece to the flip side. 

What a crazy day!  Therapy, camp, school and ballet.  Phew.

This is one of my favorite spreads from the album.  Colorful speech bubbles, popped up on some glue dots.

Stay tuned for the rest of my album.  You can see all my Week in the Life posts here

Pumpkin Patch

Avinash is an October baby but I don't think we made it to an actual pumpkin patch until he was two or three probably.  We took pictures of him in front of the big pile of pumpkins at Central Market for years.  I love that memory.  

I love taking all three now to buy pumpkins at the grocery store and out to the pumpkin farm for even more fun. We visited Barton Hills Farm just outside of Austin.

We got there early for once and the weather was perfect until it warmed up around noon.  I asked the kids to indulge me with the pictures first before running off to the bouncy place, rides and corn maze.  I got lucky too because it was perfectly outcast while we were taking pictures.   Score!

 All the pumpkin shirts are old but the sunglasses are new.

His idea to jump, so much fun.    

Nandini's jump.  She almost got air. 

We had a crew with us on the maze this year. We (wisely) choose the easy route. 

And look at them 2 years ago. Wow!!

I don't think I ever noticed how Lakshman was snuggled up to me before, but now that would be heaven.

Week in the Life Album | Thursday and Friday 2016

Sharing two more days from my Week in the Life album. I love this Henry David Thoreau quote.  I used the Letterglow app o my phone to add text to my photo. 

The start of my Thursday page. Starbucks coffee with my Dad.  

Followed by a stop at the Donut Shop.  Lakshman was more than a little excited.

Love the look of text on photos + chipboard.  

Circles on each pocket.

I added another coin pocket page with 2x2 photos. 

The end of Thursday. Not a lot of evening photos, but I did include dinner.

Friday morning, scenes from my morning walk around Town Lake.

Followed by lunch and storytime.

Lakshman knows how to go up and down stairs but he likes to wait for someone to walk with him.  

Love these LLP Harry Potter journal cards.  Avinash will pretty much only read comic books or Harry Potter.  It's hard for him, but he has heard the books out loud many times.

Stay tuned for the rest of my album.  You can see all my Week in the Life posts here
