This summer has been a whirlwind of fun!
Between enjoying our new house, time at the lake, hanging with friends, t-ball and biking- there has been little time of anything else. This summer, we dropped the precious nap time. While I used to love weekend naps- not having napes actually made our summer that much better. We played hard and then fell asleep hard!
The days are the lake were amazing. I think that we have reached the easy years. Overall, the kids can go with the flow more, they get excited about making plans and are easier to calm if they do get upset.
We signed up for t-ball, and unknown to us, 6 other of Henry and Zoey's friends from school were all signed up too. They had so much fun! There were several trips for ice cream after getting all sweaty and dusty.
Our annual spring trip to the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum- always a good time.
PSA- the small size icee at the movie theater is still bigger than your toddler's head. We loved Finding Dory, Zootopia and Secret Life of Pets this summer.
For the 4th of July, I said up at the lake for the whole week with Henry and Zoey (Nate had to work for a few days)- and it was wonderful. Relaxing, perfect and fun! All of the weekends that we were up north managed to be sunny and nice. The sad news, we sold our jet ski. It was a fun experiment, but just never worked well. Nate shed a little tear each time a jet ski would drive past. Overall, the summer was amazing!
Those weekends that we were not at cabin, we biked to the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Always started with a cinnamon roll from Great Harvest.
While interior house projects have been light this summer- we have taken on the largest landscape project ever! Our yard was a little less usable this summer, but we plan of fully enjoying it for the years to come. I will show you more next week.
We did get to enjoy a few meals and fires outside.
While I am sad summer is over, I am ready for fall. I feel like fall is a little like new years. A fresh start. I got more organized, the kids are learning again, windows are wide open, and the leaves are turning colors. There always seems to be little more free time, and now I wont feel guilty about tackling indoor projects.
Look for more in the coming weeks.
