With school starting for me tomorrow (1st teacher workday), I thought I give a recap of this summer. I had planned to do weekly posts of all the things we did this summer, but that just didn’t happen. Instead I’m just going to do one giant post of most of the things we did this summer so I can remember how awesome this summer was.
This has definitely been my favorite summer yet. Sebastian is at a really fun age and we did so many fun outings with friends and went to so many fun places. I didn’t take pictures of every single thing we did, but I did get a lot of them. All these were taken with my iphone (with the exception of a few professional shoots, my big camera got pretty dusty this summer).
Our annual “First day of summer donut date”
We met Aunt Jennifer in Greensboro for her work conference and had fun riding the elevator up and down.
We spent many evenings and days at the local pool.
Fire truck day at the transportation museum for Father’s Day.
Went out to lunch and to an aquarium with our friends Michelle and Macey.
We went to see Sebastian’s first movie: Home. We also saw Turbo, Minions, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and The Lego Movie. These were all free movies at our local theater.
Chick-fil-a dates after some of the movies. The boys couldn’t get enough of sweet Annie.
Lot’s of fun playing on his new swing set.
We went to Sebastian’s friends 3rd birthday party.
Family ice cream date.
The kids played at the museum while mommy helped work on a book project.
Next was our trip to Indiana for the Fourth of July. We went sailing.
2 years ago on fourth of July and this year.
We met some family at a park for a play date.
Great Grandparents are the best!
Sebastian made fast friends with sweet Aria.
We discovered this awesome play place right by my parents house. This will be a great indoor place to play on trips home!
We played with lots of mommy’s old toys.
Sebastian and mommy lunch date at Noodles and Company, mmm.
My mom and I took Sebastian for a little ride on my parents kayak.
Back home in NC…more pool time!
We made some play dough.
Went to pick blueberries two times.
We went to a cookout with friends on Lake Norman.
These two have an absolute blast together!
Some front yard pool and sprinkler time.
Playing “lawn mower” with daddy. Basically following daddy around on the lawn mower. (Daddy’s not actually mowing the lawn).
Building towers (and knocking them over) on a rainy day.
Park, splash pad and train ride with friends!
We painted (and set up) Sebastian’s big boy room. More to come on that soon!
We picked and ate food from the garden.
Played like crazy at Hickory Dickory Dock with friends.
Playing with trains (and all kinds of other things) at Discovery Place Kids.
Good friends came over for dinner. The kids played like crazy in the backyard.
Went for a family hike, but it was cut really short because someone wanted to be carried the whole way.
More water table fun.
Story time with the two Cliffords. (Not sure how we ended up with two of them).
Another playdate at Discovery Place Kids.
More pool time!
Checking out and having a blast at Safari Nation.
Cookout at Sebastian’s best friends house.
Aunt Christie and Michael came to visit!
Woah, that was a lot of photos. Thanks for bearing with me until the end. I probably should have made this into 2 or 3 posts. It really was a great and busy summer. I wish we could do it all over again!
