Summertime, Sunshine, Smiles and Splashes

I'm pretty sure this summer will go down in the books as one of the best ones EVER!  As I tried to cherish every moment with my girls before sending Audrey off to Kindergarten and Addison to Pre-K3, we found ourselves having lots of fun in many different ways.
The girls took gymnastics classes during the summer.
They loved taking bubble baths in mommy's "big tub" after spending hours in the swimming pool.  I think they may be turning into fish!
We spent many days playing dress-up at CHOM.

Audrey and Addison enjoyed their first trip to a movie theater to watch Monsters University.  It was a tad bit scary for Addison, but both girls really enjoyed it.

We made "playgrounds" for the hermit crabs.
The girls and I spent some time in the kitchen baking and preparing vegetables we gathered from our garden.

They are great helpers!
Addison entertained us with some of her guitar music.

She also claimed to dress up like Uncle Keith.
Several days I took my computer to the back porch and worked while the girls played in the sand box, playhouse, and on the swings.
We spent time running around, finding treasures and catching leaves.

Some days we enjoyed a new place we found that has lots of indoor playgrounds an inflatables.

As the final days of summer zoomed by, Audrey and Addison spent time on these little treasures that Grammy bought them.  They splashed on the hop scotch pad and learned how to use the slip-n-slide.

For me, this was the best summer EVER!  We had so much fun spending time together this summer.  I am sad to see it come to an end.  Monday brings the start of school and I am going to miss these girls terribly when they aren't with me. 
I'm looking forward to finding our "new normal" and still making time for lots of fun.
