WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN LOST

So John and I both had major phone trouble a couple of weeks back - the kind where both phones (that were purchased together) quit connecting to the cell network.  🤦🏻‍♀️ Apple ended up giving us loaner phones while they "double-checked" that our phones were really and truly broken.  Spoiler alert: they were.  At the end of the day, I ended up upgrading (Yay!) and John got a new phone for free, so it wasn't all bad.

But, it did mean backing up phones and having to visit the Apple store several times while also not being very gracious about my loaner phone that had virtually no storage.  When I finally got my new phone, the first restore that I did failed to include many of my pictures from June.  Instead of panicking, I wiped the phone and did a second restore where I did manage to find them all.

Here's what could have been lost, broken into themed categories.

Pool Fun: This has been the summer of the pool for us.  It is finally one of the most relaxing places we can be as a family, and we are maximizing this!

Another recurring theme I found was upside down twins, or, just pictures of the twins they wanted me to take. 🤣

Not surprisingly, the next theme was "injured child."  In this case, it was just William who managed to run a scooter into a wall at school which required a trip to his PCP for the largest goose egg I've yet encountered.  Thankfully, he was fine!

Clearly, we are enjoying our summer.  I'm SO SO SO glad these moments were not lost to us in cyber despair!
