Let's Talk - Summer!

Today is "Let's Talk" Day and I seriously almost forgot.  Apparently I've already switched into full-on summer mode ;)

Today Erika and I are talking about all things "Summer" and we hope that you join in the fun and link up with us below!

This summer our plans are pretty low key. 

Lots of swimming...

... at home (eeek!!!) and with friends :)

The kids are enrolled in swimming lessons...

... Luke is headed to a Sky Ranch launch camp and a science camp and Mason is PUMPED about an art camp.  All the kids are signed up for VBS...

... and I have lots of big plans myself... like cleaning, organizing and decorating :) hahaha

Speaking of that, here's a sneak peek at Mason's room!  It got QUITE the makeover this weekend!

We always love us some ice cream in the summertime...

... evenings cruising the golf course...

... and a fair amount of red, white and blue.

We'll have a few family book club days...

... head to the Perot Museum...

... and (hopefully) take a quick trip as a family.  We had plans to surprise the kids with a trip to San Diego, but with the whole move we're not sure if that's still going to happen.   We may postpone until Fall, but regardless - we'll try to get away together at some point.

More than anything, I'm looking forward to lots and lots of quality time together over the next few weeks.  Sleeping in, staying up late and savoring the days.

I can't wait to hear what y'all are planning this summer!" title="click to view in an external page.">An InLinkz Link-up


  1. OMG Andrea please come to San Diego!! I would die !!

  2. What a fun Summer! Ours is pretty low key too...lots and lots of swimming and swimming lessons.

  3. Oh my goodness!!! I live in San Diego! When you need recommendations, just let me know! There's so many fun things to do here for kids! I've been following your blog for 4 years now and you guys seem like the best family ❤️

  4. Have a wonderful summer! I sure do miss the fun days when my son (16 yrs old) was little! Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

  5. We've got similar ideas. Lots of swimming here too! Many blessings to
    You in your new home!

  6. Ahh I've been reading your blog for a few years now and I am SO pumped to see that Luke is going to Sky Ranch launch camp!!! I've worked there this past summer and am a counselor again this summer. It is such an amazing ministry (not being biased or anything ;)). He's going to have a blast!!

  7. Oh Andrea, that picture of Griffin on the 4th of July with the puppy. It gets me everytime... just fills me with utter happiness. :) You enjoy your Summer. You for sure have earned it!! Here in Qld, Australia we're heading into Winter but like Texas, here we don't really get much of a winter which is sad. Anyway, can't wait to read all about it.

  8. The kids would LOVE a trip to San Diego! I live about an hour or so away and try to go down as often as possible. I would definitely recommend a trip to the SD Zoo (it's THE BEST) or the Safari Park and a friend recommended "The New Children's Museum". Oh and of course, the beach. I'd also say you should take a day trip and come up to Disneyland!

  9. Your family book clubs are some of my favorites!! Can't wait to see what you do with your kids this summer. I'm also excited to see your house come together :)
