the last few days have been a whirlwind in my world.
but the good kind of whirlwind
the kind that involves family and best friends and beach trips

so while I join the rest of the population and head back to the work world today, i wanted to share a few pictures from my weekend.

My dad got sworn in as a police offer. He graduated as Class Leader and Top of Class. We are very proud of him! 

Best Friends 

Finally got to spend some time with Kayla, Caleb and Emmy!

Food comas from the Ihop....Most adorable person under 2 feet ever!! 

And a coffee date with this pretty lady!

Beach, Family and Fuzzies
my happy place

Shannon and me

Bridge runs

Mom and I

CONGRATULATIONS to your dad. That's incredible. So, I was flipping through my reader before I have to go get ready for class and saw that first picture, where he's being pinned. And since I just woke up, it looked like he was being punched in a court room brawl and I started freaking out. I like the way the story ends in real life way better. :)

Katie said...
