Memory making for sure

Let's see where did we leave off?! 
June marked the end of school and a beach vacation. 
And July is just plain ol' summer time fun 
We've been busy ... 
Catching fireflies 

Having couch slumber parties 

Eating ice cream (lots of ice cream) 

4th of Julying  

Scooter riding 

Movie watching 

Game playing 

Softball watching 

Sunflower growing 

Swimming - so much swimming 

Napping 

And just having some plain ol' fun 

Oh ya and we can't forget getting Willa- the best doll ever! 
Who by the way goes every where with us! 


It's been a great summer!! 
This is a memory making July for sure.

Summer beach trip

Our beach trip in pictures ... 

I can't let the June get away from us without writing about our trip to the beach! 

Back to Sanibel Island we went. 
It's like our home away from home after 20+ years of going there. In fact Lia calls it her "third home" - our house is #1, Oma and Opas is #2 and Sanibel is #3!! 

So... Here's our beach trip.. In pictures 

Our 4am departure came way too early .. 

... But a quick 2 hour flight and we are on vacation- at the beach- in the sand and sun!! 
Playing in the sand and swimming all day leads to napping for a certain little girl. 
The week was filled with food, fun, ice cream and swimming! 
Lots of swimming 
Did I mention ice cream ??? 
We had a few shell hunting adventures on the beach. Lia found lots of treasures! 


It was a relaxing vacation! We will cherish the memories we made and talk about the beach for weeks to come. 

We had a great time 

And can't wait to go back next summer

School's out for Summer

And just like that she's a kindergarten graduate! 
There are so many emotions surrounding this milestone 
Some sad 
But most happy 
This little girl took kindergarten by storm 
She went in a little nervous but came out confident 
We can't wait to see what's next 
"But what if I fall? Oh but my darling, what if you fly!" 
(First day of kindergarten and last day of kindergarten) 

Kindergarten was a year of growth. 
First grade is up next .... 
Watch out world she's pretty amazing!! 

Now onto Summer break
