Summer is coming to a close?!

Today I looked at the calendar and realized that in two days, I'll be flipping the page to August. What?! That means school is coming. That means there are only 3 more weeks of summer. That means Randy goes back to work. That means our lives will shift back into real schedule. For a moment, I was sad. I love summertime because we spend so much time together. We go on a million adventures, which most days I love. :) There are days when I drag my feet heading out the door, but in the end, we always have a blast. So instead of being sad and moping around because summer will end in 3 weeks, I'm going to show you all the fun that we've had. Most of you follow our other blog, so you have seen the adventures. I'll try to choose new pictures, but there might be a few repeats!

So here it is, our summer in a nutshell. Well, there are way too many pictures to fit in a nutshell. In no particular order....

  1. Wow! And I thought we had a busy summer.

  2. I don't think I know anyone who goes on as many adventures as you guys do!! It's awesome! I love your family picture at the Ogden Nature Center- that should definitely go on your wall and probably in a Christmas card or something! :)

  3. I can't even believe you guys made it through all that. I can't wait to see what you do next summer, you might have to move to a new state and start over.
