Seeing as how both boys have started school, I guess summer break is officially over. Not gonna lie, I’m going to miss our lazy days of sleeping in and doing whatever we feel like doing. We packed so much adventure and fun into summer this year. Here’s a recap of some of the highlights.
We have plans. We have lists. They are their mother’s sons after all.
This was the summer of American Ninja Warrior for us. We watched it all the time and we made SO many obstacle courses throughout the house.
Our summers are always full of birthdays and celebrations (3 out of the 4 of us were born in June or July.) This summer Brady turned 6 and Chris and I celebrated 11 years of marriage.
Brady’s birthday gift…a Beta named Shiny. He and his 2 follow up fish did NOT have long life spans, but they sure were fun while it lasted.
11 years, 3 states, 2 kids, lots of wine and dancing!
Boat time sans kids- an extra special anniversary present!
Lots of kiddie pool and popsicle time!
A few beach days here and there…
Fun at the library…
An attempt to do some school work…
A trip to Seaworld- the kids and teachers get in free. Hello cheap theme park day!
A visit with Aunt Claudia- always a fun time!
Swim lessons- so much progress made!
Celebrating my birthday with my favorites.
Celebrating Father’s Day
Visiting all the splash pads… if you build it, we will come!
Our big vacation was to Key Largo. It was the best trip ever! We had so much fun swimming, eating, boating, paddle boarding, fishing, and lounging.
A visit from the Hootens. Taylor and Nolan are 2 peas in a pod with their mad dancing skills.
A visit from Chris and Auntie Jill… who brought the boys bathtub slime.
A visit to a lake house in South Carolina with our friends the Easters. This was our Griswold portion of the summer. So many travel issues!!
We put our zoo passes to good use. Animals and another splash pad, you can’t go wrong.
The boys had their first lemonade stand.
We adopted our sweet girl, Sailor. She’s been such a fun addition to our family!
The Alligator Farm blew the boys minds. They were seriously excited!
Food trucks and bounce houses in the neighborhood.
I’m already missing all my time with my boys. They drove me nuts, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Now back to packing lunch boxes and setting alarms. Until next year, Summer!
