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 Springs – We 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!
Beach 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!
Fishing trip – We took a fishing trip with friends. Though we didn’t catch anything, the kids had a ball exploring and running around.
Universal Studios Hollywood – My husband’s company had a meeting at the theme park and after the meeting we joined him for a fun day seeing lots of the kids favorite characters and enjoying the rides.
Splash 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!
Backyard Bubbles – At the beginning of summer, I bought a bubble machine. It may have been one of my best investments so far. The kids love chasing and popping the bubbles!
I think we had a pretty good Summer. Now that school has started, my son has a whole new schedule and we’re working our life around that. 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.
