Hi there! It’s been sooooo long since I’ve been back in this space – but as you can imagine – things are always so crazy for me. I’ve decided that it would be nice to come back and post here from time to time – if for nothing else – just to have some documented memories for my kids to be able to look through one day.

Speaking of memories, we took the kids camping last weekend – and I can’t tell you just how much fun it was! The weather held up beautifully – hitting the low 70s during the day, and dropping down to the upper 50s at night. PERFECT! It felt so good to wake up to that fresh spring air, with the sounds of the birds singing and the lovely sun shining down on us. My favorite part was just being with everyone. Working together to pitch our tent. Watching Tone teach the kids how to get a nice fire going – stuffing our faces with smoked salmon, huge burgers, and of course – s’mores. We did go out and buy a portable propane stove – which I used to make breakfast (pancakes and bacon) – which worked out really well. Even though our oldest couldn’t make it (he was working), we had a pretty awesome time – and the kids couldn’t stop talking about it after we left. I can’t wait for the next one!

I think it’s pretty safe to say that we’re milking this whole “summer” thing for all that it’s worth. We’ve been making the extra effort to take as many day trips as possible – mostly to the beach – and the kids are LOVING it! And honestly, I’d be lying if I said that we aren’t loving it too.
