7 Picture Heavy Quick Summer Highlight Takes


This super quick, picture heavy post is just to remember some of the highlights of our summer activities so far. Some of these experiences were less blissful than the pictures portray, (cough, strawberry not actually picking) But we have been trying to get outside and have some fun and spend time with family and friends and the pictures have been took so why not blog it!

  1. Strawberry “picking” (only 10 raspberries were actually picked) But the kids loved this giant boat play structure at the farm, so, win!?2016-07-21 18.02.212016-07-21 18.09.18
  2. Zoo
    We have passes so try to go once a month or so, but its not always that dad gets to come along, so his presence made Hugh brave enough to try to Dinosaur park.

  3. Wading Pool
    Another favourite that we try to frequent a few times each summer. Definitely needed daddys help to keep everyone in sight

  4.  Wedding Reception fun
    My sister celebrated her wedding with a second reception on their 1st anniversary for everyone who wasn’t able to be at the wedding ceremony. It was the best party!
    Heres the snap story video for even more photos and video of the dance and song!

  5. Corn Maze and Fun Farm
    A friend invited us here and we had the BEST day. Everything was perfect for the 2-4yo crowd and they never wanted to leave. We didn’t actually venture into the corn maze, but we enjoyed the petting zoo part and slides and pig races and other activities. And they were big enough to do everything on their own!

  6. Road Construction
    What better free entertainment than our neighborhood roads getting resurfaced?

  7. Anniversary Getaway
    Brian and I pulled a giant lever to depart into the countryside for a night at a B&B for our 5th anniversary. The kids did well at Gramma and Grampas (THANKS!) and we had a great time too!

It’s been a good summer, and way up north in Canada where we are, we are just barely halfway through! More fun and sun (lets hope!) til September for sure.
