Summer VACATION!

Oh hello there readers. Have you missed me? Have I lost all of you? I am  off for summer vacation, and I couldn’t be happier. I didn’t realize just how much I missed staying at home until I was off. Piglet has been so much happier (minus the fussiness from what turned out to be a double ear infection, ouch!). We kicked off our summer vacation first with his ear infection and then with my super weird, 24 hour flu. I had a terrible fever, body aches and dizzy spells the Friday before Father’s Day. We were supposed to go camping with Adventure Family, but ended up cancelling. Luckily I didn’t stay super sick for long, and we were still able to salvage some of Father’s Day weekend. We spent the day at Adventure Family’s place, on their 40 acre tree farm.

Piglet and Adventure Girl are like twins, only 3 weeks apart. I love that they are getting the chance to grow up together, especially since neither of us knows if we will have more kids. They are learning about sharing, playing nice together, and many thing that come along with being a sibling. Adventure Girl’s grandma just moved into town, so Piglet is also getting the benefit of having a grandma to snuggle on.

Watching him devour a smore in her lap was priceless! He looks so sugar drunk.

On Father’s day we went on a nature walk in a local nature preserve in our town. My favorite part was that we were the only ones in the park. Have I mentioned how much I love our small town life?

My father’s day gift to Match was a book written from Piglet’s perspective. He teared up reading it, so I know I did alright.

The rest of our summer days so far have been filled with fun walks in the mornings, and afternoons cooling off in the kiddie pool.

We get together with friends, and weekends we soak up the family time. I am dreading going back to work, and scheming on ways I can go back to staying at home. I’m praying that a solution comes along soon. In the meantime, I’m enjoying every extra minute I have with this wonderful little person.
