Summer Recap

Fire watching with Grandma
Note to self, starting a blog at the beginning of summer is not the greatest idea. Turns out, we had a crazy, hectic, and extremely short summer. So here is a recap of the those awesome months.

The water was freezing!
At the end of June, J got this awesome idea: let's go camping for a month in the same campground as my mom. Yes, a full month of living in a trailer. My answer: Heck yes! Off we went with a trailer jammed packed with stuff. Turns out you need a lot of stuff when you'll be away from home for that long, especially with a baby.

Splish! Splash!
Jump! Jump!
During our camping, K mastered the art of jumping in the exersaucer, rolling and *insert drum roll* sitting! I am one proud momma! He even started eating "solid" food. Our days were filled with sleeping in, going for countless walks, sitting on the deck and around the campfire, all while eating, eating, eating! Unfortunately, the lake was too cold to go swimming, but we sure enjoyed those views. To make up for it, we bought one of those inflatable kiddie pools and K LOVED it! Watching him splash around in that thing was so precious!

Happy 6 months little man!
What a handsome boy!
After our month was up, we moved on to the campground where J's parents are. We spent a quick week there before heading out to another campground, this time a provincial park. Every year we spend a weekend with our friends camping in Temagami, it is something we look forward to every year. This year was no different, we had perfect weather, lots of food and were able to spend our days at the beach and our nights playing cards. (Fire bans suck, btw.)

With his godmother
 We were gone a total of 5 weeks and it was definitely, without a doubt, one of the best summers I have ever had. Bonus: it ended with another friend's wedding! She married the love of her life on a gorgeous September day, it was such a beautiful fall wedding. I know they will be one of those couples who are married for 50 years, they are just that perfect for each other. 

Here's to a great fall!
