Summer is flying by way too fast! We’ve barely crossed some of our favorite things off of our summer bucket list, like going to the pool, visiting the zoo, and taking a vacation! That is what summer is all about to us – making memories.
One of my favorite summer memories is the local kite festival. We would always pack a picnic lunch and our favorite kites. They would have kite demonstrations and everyone, amateurs and professionals alike, would launch their kites at the same time! What a sight…it was just a good family event. The first year we went my youngest was only a couple weeks old so it was fun to see him grow older each year and to watch my oldest learn how to fly his own kite.
Some of my other favorite memories include:
- Strawberry picking
- Just watching the boys chat on the patio
- Family basketball H-O-R-S-E tournaments
- Sitting by the fire making s’mores
That’s the thing about summer…memories can be made in the simplest of moments.
What memories have you made this summer?
