This summer has been one amazing journey after another! I can’t believe ten weeks just passed like a flash! I love the carefree feeling that summer brings. The days last longer, the sun shines brighter, people are more friendly! When I was a kid, I remember running around with my brothers and friends until it felt like my legs would break. I remember jumping into the pool faster than the half hour rule, and getting a horrible belly ache. But I would not admit it, because even as a child I would show no weakness! I remember how amazing that ice cream cone would taste, as I licked it so fast I got a brain freeze. I remember roasting marshmallows and watching for shooting stars. I remember that if the next T.V. show came on, I was staying up later than my bedtime! I remember a lot of things about summer when I was a kid, and those memories make me happy, so why not make the same ones with my kids?
So, this summer, we did just that! All of that and loads more! We didn’t spend a ton of money to make our summer one to remember – we didn’t fly on a plane, or need a passport. We had good old-fashioned long summer days spent splashing, laughing and celebrating life!

We had so many great days at the beach, and lots of long days spent pool side! I thought I had so many more pictures, but the truth is, I was too busy for my phone, or T.V. or much other than enjoying this small window of time with my family! When you can put the world away for a few, and let the clock tick and not care what time it is when it tocks – that is amazing. From my family to yours, we hope you had an amazing summer!
Now bring on the cider and pumpkin coffee! Time to lock my self away from the world and hibernate again!
