Brayden finished up with school a week ago Friday, and summer is in full swing at our house. We have been staying up later, already had our first bonfire and s’mores, and I have pitched the baseball to Brayden probably 1000 times. It’s more laid back, the house stays a little cleaner because we are outside all day long, and the kids’ imaginations are running wild.
The weather (up until yesterday!) has been fantastic, and I can’t even begin to tell you how ready we were for summer. I am really soaking this one up, too, since both of the kids will be in school this fall. I am already mentally preparing myself for it!
The kids can’t wait to see Inside Out and The Minions Movie, so hopefully we can hit those up on a rainy day. My sister is due in the beginning of July and we all can’t wait to meet that sweet baby boy. Kenley is all about being Aunt J’s big helper, so hopefully she sticks with that plan.
My summer bucket list is a little different- picnics, swimming, splash pad, reading, a few reorganizing tasks, a date night or two, snuggling my new nephew, photographing my first wedding, increase my work outs, and soaking up these days with my kids.
Time flies when you are having fun, and we fully intend to this summer!
What’s on your summer bucket list?
