This & That

Summer is well underway and while some days it doesn't really feel like summer, we're making the most of it and enjoying what we can do.  We get in as many pool days a week as we can and lots of playing outside.


We've taken a break from most of the activities and crafts we'd been doing but Tatum did make a few festive creations ahead of the Fourth of July.


We had an outdoor movie night a few weeks ago in our neighborhood and it was such fun for the kids - Tatum must have had about four cups of popcorn and after sitting nicely for a bit was running all over with his friends.


Most weekends we've been enjoying a wonderful and relaxing time at the lake - lots of sun, swimming for Tatum and family time.

Fourth of July

We had a great Fourth of July weekend - it was nice to finally have some things to do - Friday night we went to our country club's 4th of July party for swimming, bbq-ing and fireworks.


Saturday morning we headed right up to the lake and enjoyed a perfect day on the water.  Tatum is such a little fish and swam all day taking just a quick nap break than back into the water for more swimming and jumping off the dock.


We did classic burgers, dogs and sides for dinner and then watched some more fireworks being shot off over the lake.

Father's Day

We had another nice weekend at home - our last one with no plans and home for a while so it was nice to take it easy - Friday night pizza night, lots of time outside in the sun and we had a great time celebrating Father's Day.

Derek wanted to golf so Tatum and I spent the day at the pool then he met us afterwards for a while to swim - it was a great summer day.


That evening my family came over to BBQ and celebrate with meats, lobster and many other delicious items to enjoy.

This & That

Almost two weeks ago restaurants around here opened up for outdoor dining so we had our first meal outside in 3+ months and we all were very happy to be out.


We had another wonderful weekend at the lake - perfect summer weather, lots of relaxing and lots of swimming from the waters edge over to the dock ladder for Tatum.  He loves when Stella gets in and swims with him too.


I included this leaf blower bubble toy in an online order to get free shipping and it's been such a hit - we play with it outside just about every day!


On what should have been the last day of school we had popsicles and did a little popsicle craft that I had seen for our morning activity.
