Summer Fun

Can you believe it is almost July?! Summer is flying by. Nothing beats being a kid in the summer, nothing. My best memories are from summer days. Anyone else?

I think we are going to kick off July with a Summer MUST-DO-LIST. I don’t want summer to get away from us and wish we would have done this and that. Nothing elaborate. I’m a broke momma with one small car, but that doesn’t mean we cannot make the most of each day.

We happen to live minutes away from one of the best beaches (Parents magazine) and one of the top 50 beaches in the country! How is that for free entertainment. We also have a free public fountain (we did that today), a zoo we have a pass to, a backyard full of activities and parks within walking distance.

I am really going put on my thinking cap and make a plan. Otherwise by the time we have eaten, dressed, sunscreened, packed, made a plan and made it out the door half the day is gone…literally (Can I get an Amen!?). So I have to dig deep to find my inner planner/prepper-self and make sure we take full advantage of summer. Any fun suggestions?

Well in case you needed a dose of cuteness, a reminder of summer fun as a kid, or inspiration to get out and enjoy summer I have included some pics and a very short video (her first time in the fountain). You are already here so you might as well just scroll down and enjoy and then leave a comment telling me how cute my kids are (hard to pick up on my sarcasm here) what kind of summer fun you are up to.

Warning! The following video may bring on a bout of baby fever.

The house is kind of a mess and we have laundry to the moon and back, funny, because that is how much I love me kids too….so it is A LOT. I have no idea what is for dinner, but hey we made memories today! Daddy got to come down on his lunch and see the kiddos and so did Grandma. Nothing like summer to put a pep in your step.

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.

    Aww, so precious!! You’re wise to seize your moments, Megan! Just make a bucket list of what you want to do and check something off each day — even it it’s as simple as eating a popsicle on the front porch. My kids and I used to brainstorm on a list every summer — it’s cool to see what THEY come up with! Enjoy!

      Love it! You are one rocking mom :) I am sure that is evident by the stellar people they have grown up to be. I’ll share the list when it is up! Enjoy your summer :)

    Your kids are adorable! Great pics. I’m planning on taking an online photography class soon. Are you self-taught or did you take classes?

      That is a great summer plan! These photos were iPhone photos, but today’s blog post are photos using my mad photography skills (well, mad for me). I only took one class, online, Bella Pop. Worth checking out! Then just a lot of practice and playing around.

    I have a list of about 60 things for this summer. Some are for both boys and some are just for one of them. I think we might not get to all of them (especially some of the ones that cost money), but I did it so that at the end of the summer I can feel like we actually accomplished something. This morning we played with sidewalk chalk and this afternoon after the library I’ll take them for ice cream at McDonald’s.

      Wow! that sounds like a pretty fun day! I think I might have to break it up a little and add some fun things for Quinn (That E cannot do). I hear you on the money part, but setting goals is always good :)
