11 things I’m doing this summer

For the past week and a half I have been asking myself “What season is THIS?” We have literally gone from fall, to spring, summer sun and back to monsoon week just recently.   With all of this bipolar weather I haven’t even had a chance to think about the fact that my favorite season is right around the corner! _MG_1113

School is about to be out for SUMMER!!!!  Seriously in a matter of days we will be halfway through the year.  Time is moving by and this makes me want to hold on to as many memories as possible.  Just thinking about how fast my kids are growing makes me so emotional.  I want to share 11 things I’m doing with the crew this summer:

  1. Strawberry picking
  2. Enjoy a Staycation
  3. Visit the Zoo
  4. Sit on the porch and indulge in a fruit salad
  5. Enjoy a movie outdoors
  6. Take a trip to the beach
  7. Have dinner at the park
  8. Plant flowers
  9. Visit the farmers market
  10. Make your own lemonade
  11. Make tie-dye tees

Well this is my to do list this summer! What plans do you have for the family?  I try to set small goals and anything else is icing on the cake! In the mean time I’m enjoying these pictures to remind myself of how much I can not wait until summer is here!

Memories

* The following post is a sponsored post for Milestone,  all opinions are my own*

Life has been extremely hectic in our house, trying to adjust to 4 kids, a new baby, nursing , and just mom life in general.  While most of you are gearing up for Easter, I’m trying to remember what day it is…. I almost forgot that Axel turned 2 weeks old on Thursday and this was the perfect time to grab hold of our amazing memory cards from Milestone!  IMG_1035

We were gifted the new Over the Moon collection for Axel’s first year of memories.  This set contains a total of 30 memory cards.  I really love the color scheme in this packet; the black, white, beige, blue and yellow really compliment the graphics.  The memory cards range from 1 week to 1 year as well as sweet memories such as babies first smile, first words and blank cards to document your own special memory.

I love that each card has a date line so that parents are able to scribe the exact day each memory was captured.  With Axel being the last of our crew I am soaking up each and every memory.  These card will make it easy for me going forward!  I wish I had learned about these sooner to share with my other kiddo’s.  Be sure to grab a pack there are several themes to choose from here even a wedding pack!  And don’t worry mom’s if you missed the first year you can snag a pack for the toddler years or even activities from going to the movies,  visits to the zoo or to your child’s first visit to a museum.

IMG_1028I’m just thankful my life has gotten some what easier when it comes to capturing memories with the family!!! Which pack is your favorite?  I’m excited to know and tag me in pictures with your family memories. And make sure you check out the freebies, especially the My first Easter printable!  Until next time….
