weekend recap {88!}

i’m a bit late posting this. i blame it on not getting my second trimester energy yet (hello, where are you??). but i figured better late than never, since i wanted to share my pics from sunday. have i mentioned that one of the biggest benefits of blogging for me is that i actually do something with the photos i take? before my blog, i took so many photos, but i can’t tell you the last time i printed them or even uploaded to facebook. my blog gives me a reason and the pressure to actually edit them and share them (which is why you see so many weekend recaps).

anyway. back to the weekend! it was another three dayer, and friday ryan and i hit up the shedd aquarium after candy making and a lunch out. it was cool, but i have to admit, i pouted a little when we were too late to go to the last dolphin show of the day, since the dolphin show was really all i cared about.
