as fall approaches, it is bittersweet. i am headed back to school tomorrow...ugh. max begins preschool in sept. but there is so much to look forward to with the changing seasons. namely sweaters, leaves, playing outside in the crisp change, the time change, and ultimately the holidays...and besides, once christmas comes...summer is right around the corner...
here is a small summary of our summer...last week, my dad got us tickets to idlewild for the rest of the season AND next year...what a great way to end the summer. they are open on weekends until october...who knew??
with the changing of the seasons, comes a change in attitude for me. more on that to come...
such a fun place...and another pool to use!
the most common activity of our summer
as much as weather would allow
my babies are so gorgeous when sun kissed
nothing is better than going on vacation to the beach.
the ride down wasn't bad...the ride home i almost drove off a cliff. ROUGH!
that being said, it was a fun week. a lot of sun, no pressure to clean, cook, etc.
best of friends
right now, all they have is love for each other
once she's mobile, hopefully that will continue
fun with friends
bike and scooter
max learned to ride both and we spent A LOT of time on both
he has become so obsessed with space. he knows
all the planets and some facts about each. we are getting
a telescope for christmas. he found this at a playground
and started telling kids about planets...they weren't interested.
fourth of july
we stayed at the hilton, we felt spoiled! it will be our family
tradition from now on. it was so great not having to go through traffic to get home.
and there were plenty
library, dinos, science center...
it's hard taking pictures with two kids
keystone state park
halfway btn pittsburgh and johnstown
our meeting spot for our parents
that is...until we got idlewild memberships...
that's going to jazz up our halfway point jaunts
swingin' is her thing
reunion of old friends
slip -n- slide
the solution to hot days before the pool opened
she's upright! and soon will be fully mobile
as if the van wasn't enough...i officially became a "soccer mom" ugh...
this became a twice weekly event in our lives.
he's really good and SUPER fast...
boo hoo to running. more time off...
so great to have carly off all summer with me. we had a blast hanging out. we laughed and talked into the night many times...
stace...married...lovely...and an incredible friend...
