Saturdays In Saxapahaw

Summer in the Moment: Saturdays in Saxapahaw

June 15, 2015 Sarah Coggins

On a Friday night a couple of weeks ago, a friend asked if we were interested in joining her family for Saturdays in Saxapahaw, a weekly Saturday event in Saxapahaw, NC. We had known of it, but never been. I’m not sure why except maybe the drive which was a good 45 minutes from our home. Nonetheless, we made a quick decision to go for it, load up the kids & necessities, and join them for this little adventure.

Saturdays In Saxapahaw: June 2015

Supplies: My Tribe by Gennifer Bursett.

The event featured live music, a farmer’s market, face painting, bubble making, water slide, etc. We picnicked and just enjoyed being out with our friends. The kids (well, minus my tiny one!) had fun running around playing freely while Trent & I had a chance to catch up with our friends. Although, you could joke they were all imaginary since I have no photos of our friends or Trent. But they were there. Honest. 🙂 I was just caught up in the moment and didn’t get too many photos. A rare event for me, I know.

This was a perfect example of Summer in the Moment. Allison & I are both embracing this idea this year.

Toss the bucket list. Toss the stress. Just go, live, and enjoy the summer.

I shared last year about how much I enjoyed summer without a bucket list and how we really did accomplish a lot. Both Allison & I will be sharing our adventures throughout the next couple months using the hashtag #SummerintheMoment. Please join in! We’d love to see how you enjoy your summer too.

Do you have a favorite “must do” during the summer? Or place you enjoy going?

Linking up with Mommy & Me Monday at Really, Are You Serious?

      High-five for no lists! And, yes, how has it taken me this long to get to Saxapahaw? So fun!

    Looks like a super fun event! We don't really do bucket lists but we do try to make it to the beach every summer. :)

      It was a lot of fun! I hope we can find time to go again before the summer is over. And, yes, we try to get to the beach once a year too. No luck last year due to my pregnancy and other commitments, but we've already rented a house for later summer. Looking forward to that trip!

    This looks like such a fun time! I've never made a summer bucket list and we always seem to have a great time! Glad you got out and had fun.

      It was fun! I hope we can squeeze in another visit later this summer. Glad to know we aren't the only ones who skip the bucket list. Nothing wrong with just enjoying summer.
