Soaking up the end of Summer.

That feeling is creeping up. You know, that feeling of summer being over and the air's getting a bit of crispness to it. Not often, but every once in a while Fall is peeking it's little head around the corner. And I have to be honest...I quite like it.





Evening walks? Our favorite after dinner event, by far. It's two fold, really. One: We love, love, love to be outside and get fresh air. Oh, and the family time is nice, too. And Two: I love, love, love to tire Emeline out to assure she has absolutely NO reason to protest bedtime.

It doesn't always work.

But, sometimes we just tire Daddy out instead. ;)


We've been really, really trying to figure out ways to soak up each season with Emeline. Our schedules are getting insanely busy lately, and I'm starting to feel this guilt about not doing enough and enjoying family time. Or, being creative with it, really. 

So, in efforts to take full advantage of the crisp, cool, Fall season coming up, we made a Fall Family Bucket List. And well, tomorrow? I'll tell you all about it. In fact, I even slaved over a printable for you to have, too. Because I'm so nice :) Oh, and I quite like you guys.


Eme does, too. She told me. 

[And OMG, she is just gorgeous. I mean, I know she's mine and all. But I sometimes cannot believe I made her. You know what I mean.]
But for now, we enjoy what's left of summer.

Have a great day...

  4. She IS gorgeous, truly! Her hair is really growing in and completely changes her look. Same thing happened with my now 2-yr-old daughter and I look back and her baby photos and hardly recognize her! Enjoy the onset of Fall...a lovely season indeed!

  5. She really is extra gorgeous!
    Fall is my favorite season of all, and the first hints of it are always the best part of the year, I think!

  14. The pictures are great! Summer won't really be over for us until middle of October (maybe?). But the temps are cooling down a tad (it's not 90 at 8am anymore!), and I'm so excited. Fall is my favorite season, and I am so ready!

  15. I am SO excited at the prospect of Fall. I'm so guilty of wishing this last bit of summer away.. I can't help it! I need a little bit more color in my life- enough of this green already! I love that Dec is literally running with the wagon. Hilarious.. :) Excited to see your Fall printable! A girlfriend of mine has one that she hangs in her kitchen and swaps out every couple of months for her and her 18 month old.. Lot's of great activity ideas each month! Really gets you thinking and motivated to get out the door and explore! :)

  17. Such great pics! I'd say we are hanging onto summer here, but it doesn't take much effort. 103 today! YUCK!

    Anyway, I can't wait to see the bucket list and venture out for some Fall activity in summer weather! THANKS!

  18. I'm excited for a little taste of fall myself!

    And we have that same wagon! Jamie got it for his birthday, seriously best gift ever! It's not something I would have ever bought, thinking we wouldn't use it. Wrong! Love that thing!

  19. I love her big blue eyes and her excited smile! And I can believe you made her: she resembles you a lot! I think. Beautiful!

    Hope you enjoy the last days of summer! And Fall, the best season of all :) Excited for the printable tomorrow!

  20. yay! i love, love, love the idea of a seasonal bucket list! i am HORRIBLE at keeping some kind of daily diary, even though i desperately wish i was somewhat ambitious enough to do so. SO, what a GREAT idea to keep track of things we do together as a family on a seasonal basis! SURELY i can do this! thanks for the fabuloso idea~

  22. Since I work in a school I feel like fall is already here. Fall is my favorite time of year and I can't wait to get all my fall decor out!

    Eme has the most beautiful blue eyes, as her mama I'm sure you are aware of that! :)
