Like all parents in the summer, my ears perk up when I get wind of activities that are not only fun for kids but also free. Since the sweltering heat has subsided, the girls and I were able to make it out to a couple new (to us) parks now that we are living east… Continue reading Teddy Bears, Splash Pads, and More!
Hello! Summer is about two-thirds over and life has been a whirl of time with cousins, living it up swim-style, lots of hot dogs and corn on the cob, athletic events, playground visits, sunscreen slathering, and kids who literally never go to bed because it’s always light out (they must be solar-powered, because their energy… Continue reading In Summer!
Hello blog world, my old friend! You probably gathered from my last (emotional) post three weeks ago that we’ve moved! We are now residents of Hudson, Wisconsin. And there’s been a whole lot to do between unpacking, address changing, getting Cece signed up for school (and a little bit of summer school!), purchasing new furniture,… Continue reading We’ve Moved!
Well, fancy seeing you here again! Through no fault of my own (just kidding), this has been a summer of massive technological failure and blogging got moved to the back burner for a good long time. Finally our computer is fully functional, my shattered iPhone has been replaced, and I’ve got my blogging pants on.… Continue reading Summer days drifting away…
As we’ve done the past six years, we applied our sunscreen and spent the Fourth of July in cabin style. We stayed only briefly, as we drove up Saturday morning and left after lunch on Sunday. So it was a whirlwind of food, cousin friends, fireworks, s’mores and sparklers. And hot dogs. So many hot… Continue reading Fourth of July, 2015
Summer is just about half over and none have it has been blogged! (This was due to major technological failure at our house. Our hard drive crashed at the beginning of summer and we just recently have a working computer again.) Anyways, we are into July. The living has been good and time has been… Continue reading Summertime!
I wish I could boast about being those super-fit people who takes wheatgrass shots, avoids pizza, and runs several miles a day. But I am so not. My ideal Sunday morning consists of coffee, donuts, and serious leisure. So, it was a little out of character for me to be voluntarily running instead! Along with the Olsons,… Continue reading We be runnin’!
Summer has officially started in my book. Cece is finished with school and Memorial Day weekend just passed. (Hope yours was lovely!) I would love figure out how to strike a nice balance of activities and relaxation this summer. This morning, we were all up early and made it to a playground before the weather got too hot. The most fun… Continue reading Living the Dream
Greetings! Life has been good lately (as indicated by those super smiles above) Summer is so close to being over which is even more reason to be enjoying it as much as possible. We’ve been making time for play dates and outdoor activities before they become indoor activities again. Below are some more photos from my… Continue reading August via iPhone
Going on a dinner picnic is something that has been on my summer to-do list for a couple years. (Yes, sometimes it takes me years to check something simple off a list!) Cece needed no persuading. Joe took a little convincing , but warmed up to the idea once he saw the fancy sandwiches I was… Continue reading Picnic Dinner
