Yesterday was the first official day of Summer break here, all three girls home all day & nothing but three months of heat ahead of us! I thought it would be fun to really document our first season in our new home, the kitchen renovation that is kicking off next week & all the activities that we do with the kids. So we are going to kick off a little Summer series, week by week & share what we are up to!
The first day of Summer break kicked off with impatiently waiting to get out of bed, heaping stacks of pancakes & a long walk around the neighborhood. Harper wanted to make summer fun lists, so we each wrote down five things we wanted to do this season. Harper & Ellie’s both wanted pool, splash pad, lemonade stand, sleepovers at grandmas & an ice cream party. Claire wanted her nails painted, to have coffee & “Christmas!” so we will keep these all in mind when we wake up and need something to do.
The girls ate popsicles, played in the sprinkler and walked around the house with watering cans to water all of our flowers & grass. Having freshly laid sod in the heat of Summer is no joke! By early afternoon, everyone is pretty exhausted, I usually let them have their ipads for an hour, and nine times out of ten, Ellie & Claire fall asleep. Dreams really do come true. We are in the middle of unpacking, and at the same time, packing back up our half assed kitchen for our full renovation to begin next Monday. We plan to live with a fridge, toaster & microwave in the dining room for about a month. Oh, and eat lots of sushi & bbq!
We really love our new city & are SO excited for our first Summer here, we have big plans for baseball games, late nights at the pool and as many backyard hangs as we can handle!
What are your plans this summer?! What do you want to see more of over here on the blog? Do people even read blogs anymore? 🙂 Hope you all had a great weekend & are staying cool! XO285
