Summer Recap 2018

Happy Labor Day! What a much needed and well appreciated day off! Know what I did today? NOTHING!!! LOL! Honey, my tired is tired and that’s the truth LOL! With Labor Day comes the unofficial end to summer and I can officially say “It’s a wrap ladies and gentlemen!”

Tomorrow is the first day of school for the kids in our county. Lazy summer days are being replaced with books, papers, and homework. There are school activities and organizational hacks that need to be discovered. Summer is unofficially over. I decided that in addition to our regular Weekend Recap, I’d round out our Summer with a fun trip down memory lane. Hope you enjoy.

1.  End of Summer Bash/Baby A.'s Birthday Party.  It’s not every day you celebrate your first birthday. We decided to combine our annual End of Summer NFL Fantasy draft with baby A.’s birthday party. The kids had a ball with moon bounces. (Truth be told so did the adults). The adults enjoyed drafting their favorite players and building their amazing teams. We had food for days, friends for months, and fun memories for a lifetime. It was the perfect way to end summer.

The moon bounce was the hit of the neighborhood!


Baby A.'s Birthday Party Recap (plus End of Summer Bash!)

So, I’m not sure what I was thinking when I agreed to go with my husband on a couples’ vacation, only to return and host an annual party that would feature our daughter’s first birthday party exactly two days later.

Lesson learned. I don't think I'll try that again. Fortunately, everything seemed to fall into place exactly as it should have...despite being a bit crazy.  Now, let's discuss the party!

Weekend Recap: Prep mode

Hi guys! You already know it’s August. For me that’s the month of preparation because school is right around the corner. This year, it’s going to be a hectic trek because S. and I are actually away for some of our usual prep month. That makes things a bit more difficult, but we are a family that rises to the occasion during challenges. So, what’s on the prep agenda this month?

Weekend Recap: Family Fun at Kings Dominion (A Bucket List Item!)

Hi everyone!  You may remember a couple of weeks ago I posted our Summer Bucket List and shared that I hoped we would be able to check off quite a few items.  Well, it just so happens that it exactly what happened!

Coincidence would have it that my office decided to host a Company sponsored family fun day at Kings Dominion in Doswell, VA.  Kings Dominion is a favorite amusement park of mine and there is always so much to do for everyone.  Every family member has their favorite thing about the park.  Honeybee loves Planet Snoopy.  Bug loves Soak City.  S. loves the funnel cakes.  I love the people watching.  When the company sent out the email to see if any of the employees were interested, you know that out family was ALL in!

We arrived about an hour after the park opened and ended up staying until about an hour before it closed.  What a fun and LONG day!
