Good Bye Summer...picture heavy post

Monday, September 6, 2010

It's hard to believe that summer is over. School starts for Scott on Wednesday and this is the last year my little girl will be home with me. My heart drops at the thought of that but I know that she needs to grow but I won't take any of the time we have left for granted. Our cuddle sessions and trips to the park are times well spent.
Scott also begins his journey as a 8th grader. He has changed so much this summer and is very much a teenager now. I love his funny personality and laugh. I am sure this year will be full of many fun things including his first school dance.
This summer brought us so much fun! I thought it would be cool to recap some of our adventures!

We kicked off the summer with a visit from our friends Sam and Elise and a day at the beach!

Then Nana and Papa made their vacation plans to come visit us. Mom and I spent their first day in CA at the CK Convention in Riverside

We took Teri's class and a bonus was meeting the super sweet Kelly Marie from Lawn Fawn

Teri was sweet enough to take this pic of Mom and I

Then we all enjoyed Lily's first trip to the Magic Kingdom for Father's Day

She even got a cute button too!

We also had a first visit to the Aquarium in Long Beach

She was fascinated by the fish

We celebrated birthdays....Lily July 18th

Scott August 2nd

We played at the park near our house...alot

Had more trips to the beach (the boys are in the background with their Boogy boards

I went to Chicago for the first time to work at CHA and hang out at the Imaginisce booth. A highlight was teaching a make and take with my fellow design team member Pinky

We swam with friends...

And we had FUN!

That's life in the big city...and a summer full of great times and memories. I wouldn't have it any other way! I hope your summer was a full as mine was. I am so thankful for a loving husband and wonderful children.
Life couldn't be better! Simple as that...
