I Love Summertime

Summer is officially my favorite season. I know for many girls it’s fall — but I just love summertime and don’t want to see it end!

We had a wonderful summer weekend here. It started early with a date night for B and me – his mom watched both the kids and we got out for dinner and drinks. Getting out with two kids is HARD and I’m so grateful to have family in town to watch them!

Friday night, we got in some time on our porch after the kids were sleeping. We definitely have not done that enough since we moved in a little under a year ago, and sitting on the porch with white wine was pretty much the best way to spend a summer evening.

Saturday morning, we went for a little walk/run to the nearby farmers market. Yet another reason to love summer – all the local produce!

FW loves peaches, and I don’t blame him for not being able to wait to try one.

Saturday afternoon was my friend Cari’s baby shower! She is due in October and is having a little girl.

I’m so excited for her! She is going to be a great mommy- she already loves babies and kids.

That evening, we had plans to meet up with Dave and Anson for dinner- they had slow cooked a pork shoulder all day long and it was SO good.

This is all the meat that was left-

And I love a good cornbread.

After dinner, the kids played and we went for a little walk to a nearby community garden.

Sunday morning, I went for a run with FW. I pushed him in the stroller for 4 miles, a new postpartum record for me!

That afternoon, we took a walk to the bakery to buy some bread. Then, FW and I baked muffins.

See one missing? Someone had to eat one right when they cooled!

That evening, we enjoyed dinner with B’s family. As always, FW got to spend time with his cousins.

Some questions for you:

  • What’s on your end-of-summer bucket list?
  • Do you have any traveling coming up?

I’m linking up with the weekly wraps!

  1. I love your porch, I wish we had those in the UK! Your kids are super-cute and how lovely you have family and cousins nearby for them.
    We are on holiday in October, not too long to wait, esp as we had a week off as a staycation last month.

  2. You’ve got the best kitchen helper! Also, I love your front porch! I’d spend all my time out there. Summer is a fun season for me because I get to waterski. But honestly unless you are in are on the water, it’s pretty miserable being outside in the day time around here right now. Thanks for linking.

  3. What a fun weekend! Loved getting a sneak peak at the North Union Farmer’s Market (have never been to it). The peaches looked amazing and loved the creative diaper castle at the shower! You are living life well!

  4. Summer is my fav too. We ended up getting most things crossed off our summer bucket list in the last week, but never made it to Edgewater Live this year.
