So Long, Sweet Summer

Well guys, I have been thinking of starting a blog for so long now and after several friends encouraged me to go for it, I decided to give it a shot. I have always thought it would be such a fun way to journal about our life and I can’t wait to look back on this someday! I plan on sharing about anything and everything that I love with you all on here. I’m hoping to post several times a week!

I’m going do a little bit of an update on our fam for my first post. We had the best summer and I honestly can’t believe it’s over! Normally by August, I am so ready for fall. Fall is probably my favorite season. Changing leaves, pumpkins, big sweaters, bonfires, football- I know, #basic. Haha! For some reason this year though, I’m just having a hard time letting go of summer. This summer was a full and fun one and it makes me so excited for all of the summers to come with the boys! We enjoyed being outside often and lots of time with friends and family. We spent a lot of time at the pool and both of the boys just loved being in the water. Easton learned to swim on his own and it was so fun watching him become more and more confident! Boone is fearless in the pool too, and it’s a little bit terrifying!

We celebrated Boone’s birthday in August. I still can’t believe he is TWO years old! His current favorite activities include playing with legos and rummaging through the cabinets, haha! He is such a snuggler and he gives the best hugs and kisses. He keeps us on our toes daily! Easton started preschool a couple of weeks ago and he is loving it! He is going a couple of days a week. We love hearing all about what he does at school and the new friends he has made. He talks non-stop when he is at home so I would love to be a fly on the wall to see how that goes at school, haha. It has been nice to have some one-on-one time with Boone too! He has been loving running errands and hanging out with just me, and enjoying some treats too.

We recently started going camping and the boys LOVE it. For our first real camping trip, we went to a campground in Lexington. We went to Natural Bridge and to the safari park, made s’mores, explored, and slept (a little, lol). It was a really fun first trip and went over pretty smoothly with the exception of me locking us out of the camper for a couple of hours, haha. If any of you have any great camping tips or great places to go with little kids, let me know! We are looking forward to becoming more seasoned campers. Haha!

Since the first day of fall was yesterday, I’m finally starting to feel some fall vibes coming on! It’s a little dreary and 60 degrees today so I’m planning on lighting a candle and decorating a little. Thanks for stopping by and reading! I’m really looking forward to this blogging journey with you guys!
