summer journal: last days of summer

Wow, August really got away from me. I’m sorry I didn’t check in here more often! The month was just crammed full of summer:


swimming whenever and wherever we could,

lemonade and tattoo stand

having our first lemonade (and tattoo!) stand,

playing games

playing games on too hot days (games mama made!),

riding rollercoasters

and riding roller coasters for the first time!

How was your summer? Over too fast? Too ridiculously hot? Busy? Lazy? I want to hear from all of you! I’ve missed being here and I’m glad to be back.





We are finally home. And while I would like to say it’s wonderful to be back, my kids seem to have come down with all the illnesses they missed while we were away, so I am too busy nursing three very sick and whiny jet lagged kids to even know where we are. I only have a minute of quiet while everyone naps, so I thought I’d show you a bit of where we were.

we stayed in our friend’s amazing house.

we hiked up to..

amazing views.

we went to the beach everyday it didn’t rain (this is a crappy phone picture, but still!)

and we ate amazing food. It was an amazing trip. How could it not be? We are incredibly lucky to have such generous friends who live in such an unbelievable place.  We are offically screwed for all our future vactaions.

A quick shout out to all the awesome bloggers who kindly took care of this space while I was away: Anna, MaryJo, Julia, Rae, Holly, Erika, Abbey, Lily, and Eerika.   They baked and sewed and drew and photographed all that is the best about winter. Made winter look like paradise.
