Fun Summer...

Hi there! With this past weekend marking an end to our summer,  I thought I'd share a little of it with you.  We've been crazy busy with all kinds of fun stuff.  Our summers aren't usually this busy but we had some great quality family time...which I LOVE!    I'm not a big fan of posting personal photos online like this, but we'll say this is the one post where I'll forget about that for the sake of sharing with you and implode with said pictures :)

I don't think I've mentioned how much we love the zoo...but we do love a trip or two or three :)  We've also been to the beach a time or two and I always love the pictures I can get!  We've also been to Dave & Busters twice which the kids loved {had never been before!}.  We've also gone to the NE Aquarium, which is always a fun outing.  We spent a week in Quebec with family which was super fun!  Went into Old Quebec City which is still as beautiful, Village Vacances Valcartier {water park}, and spent a ton of time with the ones we love.  We've had relatives over our house two weeks in a row and...we've done so much my mind is going blank :)  We went to Disney last week which was the ultimate vacation for the kiddos!{when I say kiddos that includes us big kids} lol  Unfortunately we came back exhausted as we only had 3 1/2 days and crammed as much as humanly possible in each day :)

There's something about being away from home as a family.  I always love the time we get to spend together without having all the household duties, the projects and work to get in the way.  As much as I could lock myself in a padded room sometimes {so much my kids drain my energy}, as much as I am thankful for the blessing they are in our lives.  They are amazing!  It always makes me smile to see how they interact {well...not when they're screaming at each other :) }, when they 're cuddling or telling each other a story.  They are definitely the sunshine to my days.  They always find a way to show you they love you unconditionally.  We do too, but I'm not sure we're as tolerant as they are sometimes :)   Ok...off track here!  But all that to say that I am blessed to have 3 wonderful children and an amazing hard working husband.  I am so glad we spent a wonderful summer together!  Hope your summer was as good as mine!  I'm looking forward to fall and all the changes that come with it.  I can't wait for the leaves to start changing colors.  I love going up to the mountains to see all the wonderful colors nature has to show off!  Well I wish you all an awesome fall!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
