Summer Highlights

Friday, August 21, 2015

Hey guys! I cannot believe summer is coming to an end. I'm always sad to say goodbye, but also so excited for fall to come. But before we pull out our cozy sweaters and pumpkin cookie recipes (am I right?), I wanted to share our family highlights from summer!

Kellen has been working, going to school, and prepping for law school all summer long, and I've been writing, starting the Happily Hezface online store, and chasing around Kenzie all summer :) Even though it's been crazy busy, we still had a lot of fun summer adventures and so many good memories.

I'm always chasing my family around with the camera, and they're probably sick of it, but it's my way of slowing things down! Kenzie is growing up so fast, and even when I look at the pictures from earlier in summer, she looks so little!

But I'm so happy I did film everything because I got to create this video of our favorite moments from summer, and it makes me so so happy! I think I'm going to try and make this a yearly tradition. I want to a make summer highlight video every year to document this for later.

So here was our summer checklist:
Play at the splash pad
Watch fireworks
Go swimming
Play at the park, a lot
Eat snow cones, ice cream, and watermelon
Go for lots of stroller rides (seriously, hundreds)
Celebrate Kenzie's first birthday
Spend time together as a family (my favorite one)

I Hope your summer treated you well! Have a fabulous day, friends!
