As Summer Fades


When children head back to school and the weather becomes less humid the feeling of summer begins to fade.  As we absorbed our last city summer weekend together, as a little family of three, I could not help but reminisce on what made this summer special.  There were milestones for all, many playdates and birthday parties, family and friend visits, fumbled and learned as a parent, which I’m sure will be a lifetime of growth, learned not to sweat the small stuff, and learned how to squeeze a stroller onto a subway during rush hour.  I took countless pictures and went through them all!  Tear.  Here are some of my summer favorites…

Exploring the city through the eyes of a child…a new experience for us all and how fun it was…covered half of the city parks…

Maddie’s summer milestones…first birthday and walking on her own…

Our many new ways to get around the city with a stroller…taking the ferry through the East River is one…

Family trips we took over the summer.  Learned to adjust travel schedules to nap schedules…no trip is a small trip or as simple as it was before…

Numerous fun playdates and birthday parties.  I’ve never been to so many parties in one summer, actually make that a year!

My husband’s 40th surprise birthday party…two big birthday milestones this summer…phew, have to hand it to those party planners!

and, of course, all the crazy places and situations Maddie got herself into.

May the last few weeks of your summer be fun, memorable and shared with those you love.  This week we’re planning for guests and getting ready for our final summer trip.

What are some memorable moments from your summer?  I would love to hear about them.

Until next ride,

    Sounds like you had a busy summer. I did too believe it or not. A baby didn’t stop me. We took the girls to a lot of places this summer. Disneyland, Universal Studios, Gilroy Gardens, camping, the beach, funworks, parks, and other local places. We had a blast, it wasn’t easy with baby, but we managed. The girls started school last week so everything is back to normal, now we have to start getting ready for the Holidays, which will be here sooner than we think.
