August 2020

August! I gotta be honest, it wasn’t too shabby. We spent a few lovely days up north at the cabin. Cece learned to water ski. I celebrated my 34th birthday (wha??? That can’t be right. Pretty sure I’m only 23. We had a few last outing to some parks, the splash pad, and finished off…

Beachin’

It would appear that the only times I’ve taken pictures with my camera instead of my phone this summer were beach and lake days when everyone is swimsuit clad and we are near the water (which ironically is probably the worst time to grab a camera, but whatever). Below are some moments from when we…

June 2020

We’re more than halfway through summer (and 2020!) This summer definitely has moved at a slower pace. There’s been less hustle and rush and I’m not mad about it. Walks around our neighborhood and park visits. Chasing the ice cream truck. Working on our landscaping, the house, and the garden, and decluttering. And shooting a…

August 2019 Recap

Summer has promptly packed up her bags and has strutted out of here in style. The month of August felt like one last glorious chance to do a lot of our favorite things (Such as visit the cabin and go for rides on Grandpa’s boat as pictured above). Here are some of the highlights! Even…

Cabin Life 2019

We just returned from a four-day trip to my in-laws’ cabin. The last time we were able to visit was a year ago and it felt great to finally return. This was a quieter visit than usual, as we were there from Mon-Thurs and only saw about 1/4 of the kids’ cousins while we were…

July + August 2018

Oh hey! I just wanted to quick pop in and do a July and August recap now that it’s nearly September and the 2/3 of the kids in this house will be in school in less than two weeks. So, let’s go back to the 4th of July! We lived that good cabin life with…

The Marvelous Month of May

“May, more than any other month of the year, wants us to feel most alive.” -Fennel Hudson Well, hi again! I’m on a blogging roll this week and today I might (just might) finally get one of my monthly happenings blog posts complete in a timely manner. So! May! How great was that? It’s been…

Memorial Day Weekend 2018

    Hi everyone! We just returned from a long weekend up north at the cabin. As per usual, I have lots of pictures of our kids and their cousins, but no grown-ups. So although it may appear that these kids were all running around unsupervised, I assure you they were all kinds of supervised….

I Love Fall Most of All

  I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year.  Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze….

Return to the cabin!

Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit.   Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about…
