Top 10 Summer Memories

This post was supposed to happen last week  last month, but didn't. Our week last week felt so OFF although I couldn't put my finger on it. I was off for sure, forgetful and feeling like I was running around like a chicken with its head chopped off. At least I still have 4 days left of Summer so technically this post isn't too late!    Ya got me, I'm officially late But now that it's officially FALL- I wanted to be sure to share these memories! 

I thought I'd round up some of my favorite memories from Summer-- It feels redundant to say but WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO, GUYS?!?! I swear, we were JUST planning our trip to Florida the other day. Anyway, here are our TOP 10 favorite moments/memories. I asked everybody what their favorites were and we compiled this list!!

1. FLORIDA/WDW
You can read about our trip here and then tips for WDW here. 
Our girls still talk about our Florida trip and already are asking when we can go back!




2. JUST KEEP SWIMMING, JUST KEEP SWIMMING
We spent so much time at the pool. The girl's skills really grew this summer and we saw swimming with our head under water and holding our breath for longer.



  Summertime and the living is easy


3. Spending time in nature (Ledges State Park and Jester State Park)








4. Fourth of July in Chicago







5. Celebrating 7 year olds  






6.Training wheel free!
It took a little coaxing but Sophia finally took off without training wheels! She needs to gain a little more confidence with turning and stopping (sort of essentials when you're riding a bike) but our brave girl did it!

7. Indianola Balloon Festival




8. Donating hair

We were so proud of our girl when she decided to donate her hair! She has been growing it out for more than a year, just waiting for her hair to be long enough! This summer was the time! She got a letter thanking her for her donation- she was so excited to think her hair was being made into a wig to help someone!





9. Iowa State Fair





10. Back to School
