Right now I'm loving slow and lazy mornings, sitting in the back yard drinking coffee before anyone else wakes up, and the chill vibes that summertime gives off. We're mixing new adventures with pool days at home and enjoying everything summer brings.
A rainy day spent bowling followed by a movie and takeout for dinner.
Since the closest beach at the ocean is an hour and a half drive it isn't always possible to just go at the last minute. It is usually an all day thing where the dogs need to be in daycamp and we have enough food and snacks packed to last the entire day. So we've been checking out a few different lakes that are much closer and don't require too much planning or a full day away. We took a short drive to Hopkinton beach the other day. I probably wouldn't go back to this beach because it was extremely crowded and wasn't really my scene and the boat rental line was long and overpriced. But, on a more positive note, there are some really great trails to walk with the family and dogs and spots to let the dogs swim.
Patiently waiting for the ice cream truck-
We've been trying to catch this truck since last summer. We thought we figured out the time on Sunday's that it comes around so the kids all went to the front yard to catch it this past week. But once again we had no luck. It is our mission to catch that damn truck this summer.
After work bike rides around the track and cooling off in the pool with my girls.
