A couple of times I've tried to do a photo-a-day project for an entire year so that I could capture some of the everyday moments that I may forget. Unfortunately, I've never gotten more than a month or two of daily picture taking.
I recently found a photo idea on Journey to Josie that I'll join this month. Instead of worrying about taking a snapshot a day for 365 days, she takes snapshots on the first day of the month to record whatever everyday (or special) events happen. Hopefully, I'll continue this idea every month so that I can have a collection of everyday moments to cherish.
August 1st wasn't necessarily a typical day for our family, but it'll be fun peek into our lives. After waiting a week for repairs to my van, we were finally on the road between Little Rock and Tucson. This day's drive took us from Texarkana (hi Jennifer!) to Abilene, Texas.

|This smile's a bit more snaggle toothed than it was that morning. Lauren pulled a loose tooth along the way.|

|We finally found the real log.|

|Lego tower building with a new friend -- all the way up to the ceiling|
