Can you tell where we've spent most of our time the past couple of months???

Besides swimming at the pool, we've been

at the park
having playdates with friends
riding bikes
golfing (just Noah and Daddy)
playing outside
going to the free kids movies
the farmers market

and a few other things.


Strawberry Picking

and making strawberry pie,

Campfires and smores

and generally just being outside.
And being busy.
And eating yummy food.

And it wouldn't be summertime in Rochester without some memorable GNO's.

But mostly we've been swimming.

Did I mention that I'm exhausted?

It's been a great summer, full of friends food and fun.

But could school please start already?!?!
Before I keel over?!?

3 more weeks...
[And I'm out of ideas (the pool closed last week) and out of energy.]

Hope your summer has been as wonderful as ours : )

JoAnna said...

Wow. Summer! You are super woman! What I've been doing this summer: Barely getting by...

Shellie said...

Busy, busy woman you are! I love the pic of Alex's bum. I laugh pretty much every time Hailey takes a bath because of her tan lines. I think I might have to copy your idea and take a pic of her!

Sounds like it was a great summer - despite your pregnancy/health issues. Way to hang in there and give the kids all these great memories. I love all the pictures!

Tracey said...

I'm glad you've been having such a fun time, too bad the pool is already closed! Your trip to Chicago looks like fun, you guys are so awesome about going on trips alone, I guess you have to with how much Paul is gone! Good luck with the start of school!

It looks like the perfect summer! I am so impressed you were able to do all of that with feeling so horrible, you are an amazing mom!! Alex's little bum and tan lines are so cute. I can't believe they closed the pool already! You'd think in Minnesota they'd want to get in every spare moment of warm weather and the pool!

I love the pictures of your kids on the sidebar. So cute.
