our last few weeks of summer

The final two weeks of our summer vacation have been chock full of a hundred tiny moments, things missed (and also more of the same) in the previous few months that I just couldn't let go by without squeezing in before school starts (uhm, today). Making every second count like Jack Dawson, that's my game. Swimming and corn on the cob and visiting a giant pet store and playgrounds and ice cream and italian ices and flowers and sunrises and sunsets and biking on trails and being with friends before they too leave us for school and bounce houses and birthday cake and sandboxes and well-visits and cousin time and walks and scooters and water parks and roller coasters and pedicures.... We've done it all, enjoying every moment. And yeah, I wish I still had more time.
Summer of 2016? You were a good one, that's for sure!

  2. If our summers were as fun as yours I'd probably miss them too! They are not. You sure know how to pack in the fun!!

  3. Girl, I feel you! We milked every last second of summer. There is just something about grade school that makes summer so much sweeter. You guys sure did summer right and found so many awesome adventures!! I know I’ve told you before, but you document life so well through photos. You capture the greatest moments.

  4. I wish we would have had a few more weeks of summer. It seems like a distant memory now in the depths of homework and routines.

  5. oh gosh, these make me emotional!!! each photo is just so perfectly, flawlessly, childhood and summer. i never want either of those things to end!!! [...i might still riding the overly emotional train over here!]


I love hearing from you. Honest I do. You won't find my response to you here, but in your inbox. F.Y.I.
