Summer - Week 10

Our last week of summer!  Ugh!  It went by too fast!  We literally tried to cram in as much fun the last week that we could.  Here's what we were up to:


On Monday, we took a big crew to the water park for one last time.  It was me, Cooper, LL, Ben, Gigi, Maddie, and Brittany (her mom).  Then, we ran into several friends while we were there.  It was a blast!

Too bright - haha.

This boy is a trooper!  He kept right up with the big kids this summer and didn't let anything slow him down!  I am so proud of him!

These two sweet girls - I just love them.  They had so much fun being together at the water park!

I spy a Meghan in the background.  ;)

The kids in our crew!

I had been wanting to try a Pink Drink from Starbucks all summer, but never got around to it.  On the way back from the water park, we made it happen.  Better late than never, right?  It was delicious!

When we got home that afternoon, we found Lovie inside of LL's doll tent - haha.  Crazy, cross-eyed cat.


I had to use Tuesday as a kind of "catch up" day because we were going out of town at the end of the week.  First up, we dropped our last round of summer library books off at the library.  Then, the kids went to play with Oma, Opa, and Ben, while I met Laura at the gym.  We worked out hard!  After our workout, I recognized this handwriting on the "goals" board.  :)

The rest of the day was spent cleaning and doing laundry in preparation for our trip!  Matt took the kids outside for a little while that afternoon and Cooper came in with a flower for me.  :)


Wednesday we invited Meghan and Luke over for swimming at Gigi's!  The age gap between Lorelai, Luke (yes - Meghan and I love Gilmore Girls), and Cooper just doesn't seem as big as it used to, and they all play together so well.  Luke is smack in the middle of my two (age wise).  We had some cannonball competitions and the pictures didn't disappoint - haha.

Lorelai is doing an awkward wave, Luke is...??  I actually don't know.  Diving?  Haha.  And Cooper is about 30 seconds behind the other two.

Cooper's version of a cannonball.  Made me laugh so hard!  #frogjump


Thursday we left for the beach!  You can read all about it here!


Friday was a packed day!  Beach time, Ben's birthday, and mini-golf!  You can read all about it here.

Saturday and Sunday

The last two days of our trip and of summer.  You can read about it here.

That's a wrap for our summer vacation!  Man do I hate saying that!  I feel like I say this every year, but this really was the best summer ever!  Now that Cooper is bigger (and potty trained - hallelujah!), we were just able to go and do so much more.  We drained every last sunny, fun drop of summer, and I don't have a single regret!  Now the countdown to next summer is on, amiright?  ;)
