Dearies, I've missed you. We've been soaking up summer around here as of late and to be honest, I just haven't been feeling much like blogging. There have been concerts and otter pops. Days by the pool and days spent at home. I've been cleaning + organizing (weird for the summer, right?), running + lounging. It's been lovely.
This past week we spent a few days in Idaho screaming at the tops of our lungs riding roller coasters and playing in the prettiest lake I've ever seen. The children were so happy, we're already regretting not staying longer. There were cousins involved. Need I say more?
I think this may be my favorite picture from our adventure. We had been coaxing Owen to jump in the lake for a solid 5 minutes. Uncle Bill was waiting with open arms, (can I just publicly say how much we LOVE Uncle Bill? He's the best and my children ADORE him) Ryan was promising chocolate milkshakes and The Wimpy Kid movie, Abby and I were chanting "O-wen, O-wen" and Easton looks like he's about to snap. It was awesome. And yes...he did eventually take the plunge.
Now that we're home I want to savor these last few weeks of summer. I want to enjoy every moment but am mighty worried I'll get caught up in the planning + preparing for the coming school year and let these precious days slip by. Are you worried too? Well if you are, I've compiled a list of things that may help you.
The very kind Heather from Simply Feather asked if I would share with her readers how I plan to enjoy the last days of summer. You can read my post here. Be sure you enter the giveaway for some treats from my shop too. And if you're looking for more inspiration, Heather's line up from the week was fantastic.
So. Friends. What are your plans for the remaining days of summer? I'd love to hear.
