Six things I’m going to miss about Summer? I sat staring at this question for a while. I couldn’t think of many things I’m going to miss about summer. The only thing that came to mind are the adventures I’ve been able to take with my babies. Having them all to myself has been awesome. At times, I’ve wanted to just take a break from it all. Two kids, all day can be a bit much. Overall though, it’s been great to be able to surprise them, to plan our day with fun stuff and just watch them enjoy it all. That’s what I’m going to miss most about summer.

Here are six of my favorite moments this Summer with the kids:

Palm SpringsWe rode a tram (suspended in air) up a mountain. Once we reached the top of the mountain, the elevation was at 8500 ft!  Fun, but scary adventure with the kids!

4th and laila b day 043Beach days – We had more than a few adventures at the beach. One of the most fun was a family trip with friends. My daughter decided to unleash her inner surfer girl!

minionSplash Pad/Wading Pool – The kids and I met up with a friend and her kids for a day in the wading pool. The pool is right next to a park. We thought we’d hang out at the park AND the pool but there was no getting these kids out of the water. Of course, everyone slept good that day!

Our adventures will take a hit as he settles into big boy school. Big.Boy.School. Would someone like to tell my how my son is already making his way into elementary school?

There is one thing I’m looking forward to once we enter Fall – darkness! The kids don’t believe bedtime is real when it’s still light outside. While day light savings time is great for hanging out and enjoying more of the day, it’s been cramping my style at night. So bring it on Fall and bring the earlier nights with you.

What are you going to miss most about summer?

  1. Whoa that is a scary but fun way to get up the mountain. I wonder if I’d want to do it, lol!!! Probably, but I’d be a little wee tiny itsy bit hesitant too. 😉

  2. I am missing our beach days, our pool days, being able to visit anyone any day and any time. The freedom to sleep a bit if the kids sleep in, etc. I love the summer sun, and when winter comes I get very moody due to lack of sunlight around here in NH. Not looking forward to that. Love Summer and Fall.

  3. I think what i will miss the most will be the weather. i love the sun shine and warm breeze. Fall is a nice season i just wish winter didn’t follow.

  4. Aww it is always sad to see summer go! I am going to miss my summer work hours! During the summer on Fridays we got off at 2pm and now it is back to normal 5:30pm 🙁

  5. I’m going to miss a lot more than six things about summer– I wish we could have great weather all year round!

  6. This summer we moved so we didn’t do a lot of adventures. However, my husband was on military leave for over a month. It was fabulous having us all here together and just enjoying family time. This doesn’t happen every summer but it will definitely be one thing I miss about this past Summer.
