Oh summer, I welcome you with arms wide open and heart melting with gladness that you’re almost here. The memories made in those three months are such treasures. Perhaps this post stayed in draft status all winter just so I could begin the anticipation of all the adventuring that is so very close. We spend a week every year at my aunt & uncle’s cabin in the little town of Newport that lays right on the border of Washington and Idaho. It will forever be a place of true unplugged childhood delight for my kids and I love every minute of it.
Before this sweet squishy face is 2 months old he will have traveled to one of my all time bucket list destinations. I would be jealous, if I didn’t know he is going to be with a whole mess of family members that cannot wait to meet and love all over him. Safe travels little man. Enjoy Peru to the fullest.
There are so many summer days that I wish I had tangible photographic memories, but it is hard when you are actually living them as well. The simple, everyday activities that fill summer days and make up the deep-seeded-contented happy that is childhood. Little backyard pools filled with flowers, toys and grass. Blowing bubbles to chase with sticky soapy fingers. Slip and sliding down a hose soaked tarp that is more fun than Wild Waves because you’re at home with family. Then wrap up all these simple pleasures with a meal shared around a picnic table under the shade of a tree. Yep, these are the moments that fill up that happy in my heart reminding me childhood doesn’t have to be plugged in or expensive. Bring on the bubbles!
