Summer Lovin'





I've been wishing for more of those lazy days of summer, but even though it's been super busy around here we are having a good summer.  Just not a lazy one ;)  I'm completely tempted to give myself an extra month of summer an not start back-to-{home}school until October.  

I'm kidding.  

Maybe.  

So thought I'd give you a little peek at what we've been up to lately.  

We love Christian Way Farm!  There's always something fun to do there!  
And playing mini golf in 90+ degree weather is definitely fun
~especially for kiddos who score holes-in-one and get
a freebie from the drink cooler!

The Princess has begun guitar lessons from my dad.  
She is liking it so far, although she did confide to me that she 
didn't realize it would be "that hard".  Ah, the joys of practicing.  
Did I mention that we start piano lessons next month?

We are starting to harvest some pretty little cherry tomatoes from 
our few tomato plants.  The kids loving picking them.  
The only problem with that is that they eat them all before they make 
it back to the house.

Just taking some fun pics while shopping at Opry Mills Mall.  
We really didn't go to the Grand Old Ole Opry--although I think that would be fun.

More Grand Ole Opry giant guitar fun.

I have finally begun working on the kids school scrapbooks.  
This may take a while.
I'm only 7 years behind.

We enjoyed some yummy German food at Guerst House in Nashville 
recently while celebrating my sister Kari's birthday.  We have been 
wishing for a good German place to eat since we moved from AR
 and I think we've found it~yea!

We also discovered a yummy local ice cream place in Nashville.  
The kids really loved the "Trailer Trash" ice cream--it's full of 
ALL KINDS of candy bars!

There's been LOTS of Lego play this summer, too.  My son is currently 
obsessed with all things LEGO Movie :)  And just Legos in general.  
So.Many.Legos.  

Of course, there's also lots of swimming, vacation Bible school, tree house fun, sleepovers, reading, helping Dad at the church, playing board games, and more happening around here.  All in all, it's shaping up to be a pretty good summer.  

What about your summer?  What have you been up to?  Leave a comment and tell me about it :)
