End of Summer

Besides going to the MN State Fair for the first time with the kids tomorrow, we have pretty much wrapped summer up :(.
It won't feeling like summer is over next week, since the temps are going to be high, but we'll be officially starting school again on Monday.
Summer was amazing this year. The weather was perfect, the boys were friends, we got a new basketball court, and it just felt really relaxed and long---until now. Now it suddenly feels as if it just started yesterday.

Here are a few of our "end of summer" pictures before I post back to school next week.

Summer Part 2

Wow, we're already almost halfway through the month of August.

We have done so many fun things this summer and we've enjoyed so many beautiful days. But, no matter how much we take our time to enjoy the summer, it always seems to get away too quickly.

I never tire of walking outside barefoot, eating meals outside, going for warm evening walks, or having free time everyday.
This summer has been wonderful, and I am sad to see it coming quickly to an end.

I wanted to share a few more of our summer pictures.
In just over a week, we'll be doing our yearly family camping trip to Stoney Creek, followed by the boys' first time to the MN State Fair (with the free tickets we won!), and then school starts up again on August 31. Crazy!

Swimming before the water warms up is COLD!
