Our Summer In Review

27 Aug


The summer has been over for exactly a day, so it seems like as good a time as any to take a look back.

While it wasn’t a bad summer it wasn’t the best yet, that distinction goes to last summer. The area where this summer was better was that there was more Bill in the picture. This was the first summer EVER that he hasn’t been tied to the golf course so he was able to come along on some adventures with us.

We hit all the major attractions in the area. The zoo, the aquarium, Longwood Gardens, Dutch Wonderland, the Herr’s Chip Factory, the Turkey Hill Experience, we even made it to Hershey Park (for a minute). What we didn’t do was go on little hikes and excursions like we did last summer.

Looking back I’m not really sure what we did all summer but we missed out on the butterflies, and many of the other nature adventures we took last year. The kids enjoyed them last year but had no interest this year and I wasn’t going to push the issue.

We did have both boys in full day camp for three weeks which took up a nice little chunk of summertime.

Honestly though, the kids had a much different attitude than they did last year. They fought with each other a lot more and they didn’t really want to do anything. Often times it wasn’t even fun to go out with them because they were miserable. Don’t let those smiling faces fool you, we had more than our fair share of temper tantrums.

There was a lot of fun had this summer but we also missed out on a lot more. My hope is to make next summer the best one yet, so jam packed with fun they’ll be begging to go back to school just to get a break.

How was your summer? The best ever? Not even over yet?
