Sweet Summertime!

I am so thankful to have the 9 weeks off in the summer with Easton and Preston. Here our the top 10 events for our summer bucket list:
1. Multiple beach trips- Longboat key, Anna Maria Island, Coquina Beach
2. Multiple Pool play dates-
3. Lowry Park Zoo
4. Hitting up every single park in our area, especially the splash parks
5. Florida Aquarium in Tampa
6. Mote Marine Aquarium
7. Bush Gardens and/or Sea World
8. Glazer Children's Museum in Tampa
9. Panama City with my best friend Lindsey~ We will take all of our kids on the military base to enjoy their marina, playground, and campsites.
10. Family beach house in July on Anna Maria Island

It's going to be an amazing summer! The key to success with Easton and Preston is to keep them busy. Like their mama, the busier they are the more productive they are and the less trouble they get into! Yesterday, we went to the beach and pool, came home for nap time and then played with the slip and slide in the backyard. Needless to say, the boys slept great!  In addition to entertaining the boys, my plans include cooking healthy meals four times a week. Last week was my first week off and I surprised myself with delicious kabobs, chicken fajitas and a yummy pot roast. I am not taking these 9 weeks for granted! I made a summer calendar to make sure we don't get sucked into a day in front of the TV with our pajamas on. (Ok, well maybe that will happen one or two days ;)

Have a great summer everyone~

Better late than never!

I just realized that I never posted our Spring Break and Easton's 3rd Birthday Pictures~ As always, I'll let the pictures do the talking! We had an amazing time in Breckenridge, CO.
