Summer

We are a bit somber this Sunday evening.....you see, it is our final carefree Sunday evening - next Sunday evening we will be preparing for our return to work.  We are somber because we have had an amazing summer with the boys.  Being teachers we are so fortunate that we get 9 weeks off with the boys in the summer.

We have had the perfect mix of being busy and hanging at home.  We have filled our 9 weeks with wonderful time together and we have made some amazing memories.  We will be soaking in the last few days of vacation this week and also prepping for Jack's FIRST Birthday on Saturday.

Here is what we have done this summer...

Visited MJ's family in Minnesota.  We had lots of fun with aunts, uncles and cousins.  We took a trip to the zoo and took lots of walks to the park to play.

Went to a local water park, amusement park, the beach (twice), enjoyed Dis.ney's Pirat.es and Princ.esses, played in the backyard.

We spent three days at the brand new Gre.at W0lf L0dge here in New En.gland.

Got a new HUGE swingset/play structure for our backyard thanks to some friends.  Played with the neighbors.

Had a bunch of backyard fires and roasted marshmallows and made smores.

Made a pact to read through ALL of the books on Drew's bookshelf (we are making great headway and should make it by the end of September- the boy has a TON of books!)

Played mini golf, ate ice cream, learned how to play Chute.s and Ladd.ers.

Laughed, loved spending time together, made memories to last a lifetime.

We are so very blessed.
