Weekend Recap and the Start of Summer Vacation

Summer!  School officially ends on Tuesday, which seems so late - isn't Summer already half over?  No?  Okay good!  This weekend, we visited the boys' day camp that they will be attending for a few weeks next month.  I'm excited for them, and both my husband and I wished we could go too!  I'm most excited for them to get daily swim lessons.  Swimming feels like the next big hurdle.  

We also attended a ice cream festival on Saturday afternoon, enjoying four servings of ice cream from local ice cream shops.  YUM!  Perfect on a hot sunny day.  Kevin and I had a date night, which only consisted of seeing a movie, but it was good to get out.  (We saw "This is the End" - quite possibly the strangest and crudest movie ever, but I will admit I laughed out loud and often.  Actually, I'm chuckling now remembering a couple particular scenes.)  

Sunday's main event was a hike through a nearby wildlife sanctuary.  It was on our to-do list to hunt for frogs and turtles, and after much searching, we finally saw a frog streak by us right as we were close to leaving!  We also saw five turtles.  The boys were very excited.  I was happy too, because the boys were great about walking a long way and because the trees provided lovely shady relief from the hot sun.  

Here's what's on tap for the week:
  • Last day of school!  We plan to celebrate with a couple of Aaron's friends.  It's going to be another scorcher, so I'm thinking sprinkler and popsicles.
  • Party preparations!  I need to order the ice cream cake and pick up a couple favors.  Then I need to say a prayer to the weather goddess to keep the skies clear for an hour and a half Saturday afternoon.  
  • Movie!  One day this week we will go see Monsters University.  I am actually looking forward to it.
It's going to be a good week.  Hope yours is too!

  1. It's so strange to me in a way that everyone is going on about summer when it is so, so cold here! (by my Sydney standards, anyway). On the bright side, I get to experience a vicarious summer through all the summery blog posts :) I know that it has also been quite an adjustment for D to have his seasons turned upside down. But anyway. Your start to summer sounds wonderful, especially the ice cream festival - yum!
