The Low Down on Summer

It flew by.

We spent the majority of the summer moving. And I took zero pictures. For almost an entire month I would spend every week day moving boxes and unpacking and then in the evening going back and packing more boxes to unload and unpack the next day. It was not all that fun. Finally, I declared August “summertime.”

And the boys swam every single day. Sometimes jumping in the pool first thing in the morning, in their PJ’s. Rules were implemented after the fourth time this happened.

We had a few play-dates.

Went on a few day trips.

And then I woke up one morning and thought, “Holy cow, school starts on Monday.”

That was four days ago. Over the course of the summer, I took approximately 100 shots. Glamorous I know.

So without further ado, here is a snippet of our summer.

The boys went to VBS again this year.IMG_1579IMG_1586

Bogie was tested for allergies, so these guys spent the day with their cousins.IMG_1927IMG_1919


One of my life-long friends, who now resides in New York, came home to celebrate her daughters 1st Birthday. It was great seeing her and her entire family. IMG_1947

We cashed in on our Easter present from my parents.IMG_1952IMG_1955IMG_1961

These guys were in hog heaven with hot dogs, nachos, sprite, frozen lemonade, and ice-cream. When I went as a kid, we got a hot dog and our seats were in the nosebleed section you see in the background up there. My kids think that ground level behind home plate is where you always sit. Can we say spoiled?

Thank you for the game and all of the treats!IMG_1988

Now, my MIL had to clean out  half of her house to fit us in, which meant going through tons of closets and drawers and cabinets. She cornered her two sons into going through their things. She had saved everything. Want to know how much stuff each guy kept?

About 5%. Men!


Bogie and Kai did gymnastics again this summer and guess how many shots I got of the two of them. If you guessed zero you are correct!

I loved seeing your pictures here. Summer did fly by, didn't it?! I thought it would crawl by, but it went so fast. You've been busy with moving, and everything else. You've been missed on here!
