Summer in the Moment: July & August

In spite of year round school, the last two months have been full of adventures … so much so, I forgot to write a July post! (You can find the June post here.)

Here’s an overview of our summer in the moment fun for July & August …

We took a¬†road trip to Virginia complete with geocaching, swimming, and beer tasting (that part was adults only! ūüėČ ).

We enjoyed last minute open play at Rainbow Room on a hot afternoon.

We¬†stopped by Quail Ridge books to search for Waldo and select a couple of books for Dylan’s birthday. He took time to read a book to Elise.

We had water gun fights, more running through the sprinkler, and dressed up like cows for Cow Appreciation Day.

We made Sprite Gummy Popsicles¬†and attended¬†our neighborhood’s annual Fiesta Pool Party.

We watched the annual Fire Truck Parade and managed 4 park stops in one day to get more passport stamps.

We had a picnic at a local park and watched Trent’s softball team play.

We visited 3 children’s museums. Spent an afternoon swimming with cousins.

We watched airplanes land & take off at the RDU Observation Park. And spent time swinging in our own backyard.

We completed a few color experiments from a recent Kiwi Crate.

And, our fun isn’t over yet! Dylan is currently “tracked out”¬†and on a break from school until after Labor Day so we’ll be soaking up a few more days of summer fun in the meantime.

    What great summer memories! It's so funny how they can go from hating the water to enjoying it in such a quick time. We skipped dress like a cow day because it was the same week as Chick-fil-A camp and we all already got sandwiches. I couldn't do it again:)

      Chick-fil-A camp?? That sounds awesome! My son would have us moving to ATL for that alone. :)

    This is so great - and I am so glad you shared. You certainly made Summer in the Moment look awesome!
