Summertime is one of my favorite times. The weather is perfect for outside activities, there are so many things to do, produce is at its peak, we BBQ and spend evenings outdoors instead of in front of the tv… it’s just full of so much awesomeness. I have a tough time sitting still at the computer. In fact as I write this on my phone I’m sitting outside Hunter’s door with it cracked open making sure he doesn’t get out of bed. #napwarsdrama
Once he’s all calm and sleepy it’s a shower and working on things around the house. When summer activities and get togethers pick up, house organization and tidiness goes down. Like I said in the last healthy on $75 post, it will continue on through July and until I share all I want to. Over these next few months I foresee short quick posts. Foods I’ve been making, life lately and kiddo update posts. Who knows, maybe they’ll be more frequent if they’re shorter. Pictures are worth a thousand words right?
Here’s a glimpse at our life lately.
Berry picking – we’ve gone strawberry picking twice and raspberry picking once and I hope to do more raspberry and blueberry picking as well before the seasons end. It’s fun for Hunter and makes berries so crazy adorable. Plus then I can do some canning!
Garden harvesting – this is my first year of successful gardening. I’ve harvested peas, kale, swiss chard and green onions. In a day or two I’ll have my first grape tomatoes and zucchini to harvest too!
Hunter loves helping in the garden.
Friends – lots of get together. Weekends are packed with fun filled times with friends, yummy food and lots of crazy kids.
Sewing projects. My latest few include this 4th of July romper and headband for Zoe…
This sa-weet tank top for my hubba hubba hubs…
And a pretty pinafore for my niece.
I also have a tank top in the works for me this week and so many projects planned in my mind. Can we please have about 10 more hours in the day?
Play – when it’s not too scorching hot we get outside.
Hunter and Zoe both love being outside. I’ve been doing more walks with them, we’ve been enjoying the yard and everything outside. Zoe doesn’t love carriers, but she does like her car seat which fits into the jogging stroller so my new way of walking with them is her in the stroller and Hunter in the carrier. They both love it, I get more Hunter snuggles and the walk is an actual workout too lugging the 2 year old on me.
Our Fourth of July was pretty mellow. Not much firework watching and the kiddos thankfully slept through all the noise.
How was your 4th? What’s life like lately?
