This summer seemed to be a very busy, on the go type summer. This was atypical for our family. But, definitly a summer to remember. So, here is for memories sake. As a family, we....
Took a trip to Northern Virginia where we were blessed to house sit for friends, visit the National Museum of Natural History, spend a day at 6 flags, patronize the lego store, picnic, play games as a family and watch a movie.
We enjoyed a day trip to Skyline Drive where the deer were out and fun to watch.
The kids joined the swim team this summer and loved that. We spent most days at the pool.
We hosted lovely friends from out of state and made good use of our "new" 12 passenger van.
Grandparents came up from Texas for an extended weekend. We had a relaxed and blessed time with them.
We enjoyed camping with friends. Once at Natural Chimneys
and another camping trip with friends at Camp Overlook.
We enjoyed times woth cousins eating popsicles on the front porch and just hanging out.
The neighbors spent some time at our house. We also build puzzles, played games, started building a fort, put up a clothes line, deep cleaned and rearranged in areas. We even had a big yardsale.
We went to friends houses and played games.
We went to the neighbors and had picnics, jumped on the trampoline and played in backyard pools.
We also had quiet moments watching the pair of doves build a nest outside our window.
Or simple fun at home playing legos, cars, babies, reading good books, doing art projects, visiting the library, watching movies, taking walks, playing outdoor games, riding bikes and skates or baking. The kids also helped Daddy at work many days this summer. Time flies. Children grow.
