The Summer Album: The Sequel


Let's continue with my recap to our summer, shall we?  See yesterday's post for Part One.

Our 10-Year Anniversary

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary this summer!  Anniversary trip is still to come, but we did go to a fun local restaurant/petting zoo/park to celebrate.  The kids ran around and played, and we ate Southern comfort food.




Ballet Class For Gwen

Gwen has been dying to do ballet all year, and was beside herself with excitement when we finally signed her up!  She loved it so much.  We will probably be doing another class for her in the future - it was so sad to see her disappointment on her last day of ballet.  Clarice also dressed up in ballet clothes and tagged along a couple times.




Art Projects On The Porch

A lot of the summer looked like this - just having around at home and goofing off.


Naps

We took a lot of naps.


Lots Of Birthday Parties For Friends And Family

There were a lot of birthday parties this year.  We went to splash pads, and a couple bouncy house parties (one coming up this weekend).  


Trip To Six Flags

A friend of mine got a season pass to Six Flags, and invited me to go with her for a mom's day out!  Derek and I went to an amusement park a couple years ago, and we got sick on a few of the rides but found our sweet spot by the end of the day, so I figured I'd be fine.  My friend and I had a ton of fun, riding all the roller coasters and getting a chance to talk uninterrupted by children!  I did get nauseous between rides though and had to sip a lot of water - why are adult stomachs not as hardy as kid stomachs?  It's just not fair.  I'm bringing Dramamine next time.


$1 Movies At The Theater

Some of our local theaters do $1 kid movies over the summer, so we went to see a couple of them!  I want to go more next summer, it's a fun day out for all of us and it's a nice little break for me!



Campfire In The Backyard

They finally lifted the fire ban toward the end of the summer, so we had a backyard campfire strait away!









Camping On The Porch

We also threw in camping on the porch, because why not?





Trip To See Dinosaur Footprint Fossils

We had an opportunity to hear a creationist geologist speak at a nearby area with dinosaur footprint fossils.  His talk was more geared toward the adults, and I found it interesting (until we had to dive out because the sun was becoming a little too much for Georgie).  The kids were fascinated by the dinosaur footprints, and we all wished we could search through those rocks on the side of the road for fossils.







Last Hoorah For Summer Camping Trip

We decided to take a camping trip on the last weekend before we started school this week!  We went to a KOA, and it was amazing.  They had a water park included in the price of the campsite, so we spent several hours there, letting the kids play!  The water wasn't very deep, so I could just let them go off by themselves while I watched.  It was so much fun!  We also snuck in a hike and trip to "Whit's End".  We got one more campfire in before the summer ended.  It was lovely.










Now Autumn is officially welcome to start!
