We are in the dog days of summer.  I would love to say that it has been restful and we are lazing around the pool all day long.  But, with two active boys at home most days- that just doesn't happen.  They don't know the meaning of "relax".  Thankfully I have the wonderful world of Pinterest to give me some great ideas for the days that can feel endless when one activity only takes up about 5 minutes of their attention before they are ready to move on.
However, it's relaxing in another way.  There is no rush out the door at 7:15am.  The boys can stay in PJ's a little longer.  We can have a bath anytime of day.  We aren't stressed about what to pack for lunch.  There are no forms to fill out.  Our biggest concern is putting on sunscreen and deciding which playground we should go to - and that is fine by me!

So for us right now, summer means...

snack outside
Superhero capes all day long

Bubble machine!

4th of July desserts

Picnics in the park

Movies and snacks in the playroom

sidewalk chalk race car tracks

Front porch selfies

watercolor paining

creative ways to stay entertained - no mess finger painting!

First Fro-Yo experience!
Soooo excited to take it home to show daddy!
