Today I am recapping some of our favorite family activities from this Summer.
I hope you enjoy the look back at our crazy busy Summer.
I can’t believe summer break will be over in 10 days!! Our girls are actually very happy to go back to school. They can’t wait to meet their new teachers and see all of their friends. We made a Summer Bucket List and I had high hopes to accomplish all 26 things on the list but we have only be able to complete 16 activities. Hopefully before school starts we can do a few more fun activities.
It is hard to believe I took this picture 70 days ago. We have had a very busy summer and it has gone by so fast!
We kicked our summer off with Abigail’s 7th birthday party.
Our summer has been full of a lot of swimming.
And making a lot of great memories.
I think one of my favorites things from this summer was our family vacation to California. It was a quick trip but we saw a lot and had so much fun!
This summer we did something we had not done in almost 5 years – a vacation with friends. Our vacation to Cabo was so nice and relaxing. Everyday that I wake up I wish I was still on vacation in Cabo.
As moms we are constantly taking care of our families and forget that we need to have “mommy” time. My friend Emily @ Simply A Rough Draft blogged yesterday about “#GOMO” (Going Out More Often) and I totally agree with everything she posted about and loved this one statement… “Let’s live life while we still can!” (go check her post her out – HERE!!). When this summer started I made it my priority to spend a lot of time with my girlfriends. I have several different groups of friends – church girls, school friends, PTA moms, etc. So this summer I was busy with a lot of Girls Nights Outs.
one more thing….
I love the Holderness Family videos. I saw this video this week on Facebook and I think all parents of school age children can totally relate to this video.
