Summer Lovin'

Wow! Another weekend has come and gone. Do you feel like you blink a couple of times and Monday is here again? Even though we try to make every minute count and do as much as we can, there doesn't seem to be enough time to get everything done and accomplished. I am not complaining, just wishing we could add a few more hours onto the weekends.

And can you believe it will be August this week? Where has the summer gone? This is my favorite time of the year and it is coming to a close. I already spotted a few Christmas decorations on the shelves of some stores. WHAT? Can I please just enjoy a few more moments of summer before we start seeing Santa Claus everywhere? 

If you have been reading along, you know that Mondays on this here blog mean weekend snapshot sharing via Instagram. So, here we go...

LOGAN IS A ROCK STAR
She participated in her first biathlon Saturday morning. She had to swim 4 laps in the pool and run a 1K race. Our cousin trains young triathletes and invited Logan to join. She has only been "training" for about a week, so I was super nervous about how she would do, especially about having to swim without stopping. I am proud to report that she rocked it and wants to join a team and train. This was seriously one of my proudest mom moments. When she crossed that finish line tears came to my eyes!  

A FEW REASONS WHY I HEART SUMMER
4. Pool with friends

5. Celebrating the start of the Olympics. GO TEAM U.S.A. We watched it all weekend. Did you?

6. Backyard shindigs at the casa...fried fish, washers, cold beverages, music and friends...it doesn't get much better than this.

7. Hearing the kids' laugh and giggle playing in the backyard, doing what kids are supposed to do...jump on the trampoline, make up dance routines, play volleyball and run around like crazy animals! These are what memories are made of. 

WEEKEND RANDOMS
8. What I wore on Sunday. The shorts are my new faves from Old Navy. I have found some jewels there lately. If you haven't been in awhile, you need to make a trip soon!

9. We found these cute little skinny jeans for Logan at Target. Another thing she had to have or was going to DIE! I secretly want a pair for myself.

10. We went bowling on Sunday and check out the scores. Momma knows how to roll!

11. I downloaded Text Free on Logan's iPod and she won't stop sending me messages. This is how it started off. By the end of the day, I had about 20 new messages from her. What have I done??


What was on your summer agenda over the weekend? I hope you enjoyed it, made the most of it and got to spend it with the people you love.

Cheers to making it a great week!

Logan's already participating in biathalons?! That's amazing. And it makes me feel sort of unaccomplished ;) It looks like you had a fabulous weekend filled with all of the right things. I too wish we could tack on a few hours to each weekend, or a full extra day would be nice as well! Have a happy Monday :)

Bring on the Santa Claus! I am so pumped that summer is almost over. Only because my husband and I have a cruise planned at the end of the year though. Normally I don't want summer to end!
