August 2017 iPhonetography

We’re running on a little delay for August’s photo roundup, thanks to the untimely death of my iPhone.  Whomp whomp.  One night, I went to bed and my phone was working just fine… and by the morning, it had shut itself off and could not be resuscitated.  Pour one out for my old phone, please.

Fortunately a neighbor helped out and lent me her old iPhone 5, and then I found a good deal on an iPhone 6 to tide me over until I upgrade to the new iPhone (which we were planning on doing anyway).  But of course, this snafu meant that all the photos on my phone *poof* disappeared.  Fortunately, I back up my photos pretty regularly so I only lost a few day’s worth, but those photos were all now on my desktop and not on my phone where my photo grid app is and, well… you get the idea.  This month took a lot more effort than usual.

But what a good month it was!  Soccer practices, day trips to the beach, lots of time at the pool, and ending with a weeklong New England road trip.  Our little vacation actually split August and September, so in a few weeks, there will be even more vacation pictures to share.

All in all, it was a great end to a great summer full of lots of 2 year old fun.  We’re all having a difficult time adjusting to our new fall schedule, but we’ll get there — and in the meantime, I’ll keep revisiting these pictures for great memories of the fun, carefree days we had last month.

As usual, here’s a roundup in pictures of how we spent the past month. Many of these come from my private Instagram account, but you can follow along on my public account here.
