Summer So Far

Summer is in full force, and so far it has been a busy one! Z is in summer camp at his former (and Lu's current) preschool, which is great because I get to drop them off and pick them up at the same place, but also exhausting because I have to drop them off and pick them up at the same place. Know what I mean?

Besides drop offs and pick ups (thank goodness for audiobooks!), we've been busy with doctor's appointments (planned and unplanned), swim lessons, and home improvement projects (planned and very much unplanned). Things have been crazy, but we've managed to have some fun amidst the chaos.

Last day of school!

Memorial Day fiesta at Superior Grill

Afternoon at Mama's office

Friday afternoon at the library  

Swim lessons!

Stretching (haha)

Carpet Angels

Celebrating one of the best for Father's Day!

Going to the movies!

And everything in between! 

We're looking forward to lots more summer adventures, including a road trip to Nana and Tata's very soon!

Beach 2016 Part 2

We loved our pool and beach time, but we also made more time to get out and do things this year. We hit up the doughnut truck and splash pad in Alys Beach one morning.

 Went to Seaside multiple times (matching shirts and all).

  We  went to Panama City (Pier Park) and on the rainiest day, we hit up Destin for the arcade and pizza followed by the outlets. 

  We quite enjoyed our outings and between the arcade, Game Stop, the Disney outlet, and Duckies, the kids made out like bandits!

Beach 2016, Part 1

We just got back from a wonderful family trip to the beach! There were several things working against our annual summer beach trip this year. Once we finally found a good time and a place that wasn't booked for our time or out of our price range, we thought we were good, then they cancelled our reservation because the place changed ownership. We almost called it off, but we persisted, and we were so glad we did! Although it wasn't long enough, we had a great time!

 The first thing we did was check out the house and the backyard pool!

We got there too early to get in, so we went to Seaside to hit up some of our favorite places, then went to the grocery store. Somehow stocking up at the beach grocery store seems to mark the official beginning of vacation! We were excited!

After we got in and unloaded groceries, we had to go check out the beach, and the cool private beach access!

Another day, another visit to the pool and the beach and lots of way overdue relaxation time!
