Is it REALLY the end of July???

Oh, I suppose it is! The stores are stocked with backpacks & various sundries in preparation for Back to School. The craft stores & clothing shops are drowning in summer clearance. And Moms everywhere are "tweeting" that they just CANNOT WAIT for school to start back up again. I can feel it. The end of summer is near.

For me, I feel like the summer has went WAY to fast & I haven't been able to accomplish many of the things I wanted to. I'm guessing I won't, either. But since it's been one of the hottest summers on record & I'm in the third trimester of my pregnancy, I am trying not to be too hard on myself. The last few weeks of summer are starting to be filled with preparing for the arrival of Miss Magic & for Smarty Pants to head back to school. Blue Eyes is rapidly making his way into the "terrible" toddler stage and is turning from a baby into a "big boy" right before my eyes. I am getting excited for this summer chapter in our lives to come to a close and a new chapter as a family of five to begin.

Here's a few pic's of what we have been up to so far this summer.


My Brother in Law is a race car driver & instructor for PDA, so we braved the heat this month & went to the races!

Smarty Pants & Grandma loved riding on the carousel!

Had a blast at the Fourth of July parade!

Visited "Old Ben" in Philadelphia!

What have you & your family done so far this summer? What kind of plans do you have for the last few weeks before going back to school?


  1. Just cannot believe that its the end of July...

  2. Looks like you all had a blast. I can't believe you got to see "Old Ben"..I so want to go see him. (okay so I am a freak for history)

    We took a long weekend and went down to Hotsprings, AR and played on one of the local lakes. The only thing left we have planned before Drama Queen returns back to her bio-dad's for school is a trip to Chucky Cheese and maybe a trip to the local park that has a waterfall.

  3. Ooops and forgot to tell you I am giving you an award,head on over to my blog to grab it.
