  1. I had such a bummer summer this year. I was sick and didn't get to take the kids on any fun vacation day trips or long trips. They did get to go swimming a whole lot, though. They loved that. Next summer my husband and I plan on making sure that our children have a fun summer!

    I love your blog!

  31. I took a week off work around July 4th and we ended up staying at home because it was absolutely too hot to go anywhere. It was 102-105 each day, and it was all we could do to stay halfway cool! At least we didn't have to go to work those days :)

    Next year, we'll probably go somewhere for a long weekend, but not sure where yet.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  40. This summer my husband and I went on our second honeymoon. We came back to the place where we had our first honeymoon (Carmel, CA). It was amazing. We had some extra time during this honeymoon. We did lots of hiking, window shopping, and spent time at the aquarium in Monterey. It was just as romantic as the first time. :)

  46. Over the summer, we made a stressful out-of-state move. I DESPISE moving! Since marrying hubby 16 years ago, we've moved a lot(6 times) -- 2 of them out-of-state. Who knows how long we'll be where we are? I'm so tempted to tell hubby to go alone ;)
