Summer as seen through my iphone

What a fun summer, I just went through all of my iphone pictures and wanted to share my favorites.  warning: this post is going to be looooong!  And only include the appropriate ones!  why are my kids always down to their skivvies? (:

Closing Ceremony on the last day of school.  Tuck the Mayor. forever and ever.  Wes at his older brothers closing ceremony.  Second year he’s gone, and second year I’ve had to take him outside for part of it. (:

The next morning we went to the four seasons orlando, and had a kick off to summer.  It was the best time!

Grandma has wesley on Tuesday for gymnastics, and I got to have tuesday mornings with tuckie all summer.  

My kids are OBSESSED with these quarter rides in the mall.  at stump pass

early morning snugs

every sunday, all summer- BBQ and swim at my parents.

Just wes being wes (;

lots of beautiful beach dayswent back down to Boca Grande!

had a little staycation with these gems at The Vinoy i couldn’t pass up peonies at trader joes once this summercelebrated Father’s day with JB, my father in law, and my dad at my in laws house.  

Tuck did a tennis and golf camp at Long Boat Key resort — it’s such a great camp, if you are here or ever visiting.

I started something I’ve wanted to do forever – TENNIS!  

We had JB’s regional meeting down in Naples for a long weekend.

my mom hosted shannons mom, anitas, birthday.  All of the moms and daughters pictured!

Tuck at Art Camp.  It was every friday for two hours and they did SO much.  I was really impressed!

We took Wes to his first movie – Despicable Me 3.

we all swam in my parents pool 12o923 times this summer.

We went to Egmont Key on the boat

I am storing most of my ginger jars on the top of the shelfs and I love it.

wes took a couple weeks of swim lessons this summer, and improved so much!

The boys set up their lemonade shop.  I LOVE this antsy pants line – and it was a fun thing for us all to put together (under 20 min). 

We spent a whole week in Nevis and it was heavenly.  

a couple things I brought along for the flights (ipad, truck book, sippy cup c/o chicco , cath kidston  backpack, water wow, small cars, + lolly pops!}the boys almost always sneak into our room around 3am.  and I don’t mind onnnnne bit.

at the kids museum I watched wes line these all up.  this is SO not me.

After the splash pad, sharing a towel together.  heart melting.

I took the boys to Hollywood studios solo and it was one of the best days of summer together.  

Most everything is indoors at Hollywood studios, so it’s a great place to visit in the heat of August.

We went to Legoland with Jordan and Covington.  It’s huge and there’s so much to do.  Will definitely venture back when it’s cooler.  Tuck at his Art Show (:

we went to the Rays game!

my favorite park on LongBoat Key — Bayfront park!

My best friend haley and goddaughter have been in town, and we made sure to stop at the new Farmhouse donuts!!  so so good.

These TBBC prayer pajamas melt my heart.  

At the old historical park in Bradenton, I am always obsessed with this color blue, and love this combo.  We are getting close to the contractor finishing the repairs so painting can begin.  Can I pull the trigger on this combo though?!

It was my mother in laws 70th birthday!  We stayed at Animal Kingdom Kidani Village and loved watching the animals outside our window – we also went to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom.

It’s been a beautiful summer!  I’m not going to lie though,  having a few mornings to myself is going to be nice.  Eventually!  It was a hard day yesterday with no kids, and knowing wes was at school.  I was ready to pick him up about an hour after I dropped him off… but I know that’ll change, and I’ll get used to it.  Or I hope so, anyway (:

This was a long one!  thanks for making it through. xox
