Blazing through…

Oh no! Summer’s halfway over, and it’s been two months since I’ve posted anything.

A quick photo recap for those who might care (looking at you, family…):

We started out strong.

Despite turning 1, this wild puppy-beast is still wearing us down. Destroyed items now include dominoes, shoes, Legos (how on earth does one destroy a Lego?), stuffed animals, sofa pillows, socks (ingested and then regurgitated), the corner of the cabinet in the laundry room, and too many shirts to count. (Nonetheless, I still think she hung the moon.)

We front-loaded all of our beach time this summer; now, we are missing the sand and the waves in a big way.

Kirbo still cannot get enough of the beach.

Tuck rocked it out during a week of surf camp–one of the coolest things he’s ever done (and if you know Tucker, you know this is really saying something; the dude oozes coolness.).

I’d love to be taking this picture right now.

Tucker’s Half-Birthday/The 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays. We had some friends come join us to celebrate. It was one long, hot, fun day. Kirby rode in her first parade:

After a day spent riding the huge waves (thank you, Hurricane Arthur), playing bocce, swimming, and tossing the football, the boys horsed around on the beach while we waited for the fireworks.

The parents had a good time waiting, too.

Officially 8 and 1/2. Where is the time going?

We had some incredible photos taken of the boys over Memorial Day.

And our post-beach summer has been filled with the usual suspects: swimming, movies, fireflies…

Hard to believe there are only 22 days left until school starts. It’s even harder to believe that today is the first day I’ve checked the calendar for that total. Summertime with 3 boys is getting easier; that’s for sure.

(Thank goodness.)

Boy and Boykin. One of my favorite shots I’ve taken this summer.

Here’s to making the most of these next 22 days…
