and now...the forgotten summer recap...
3 | you may or may not know, but my farmer bought a short school bus at the beginning of the summer. well, on a super hot day, we stopped by this gal's house, snatched up her and the family, and took off to go cherry picking. however, the cherry picking wasn't the best part. it was watching these two love each other...and of course observing kaye get repeatedly caught in the cherry tree netting. 
4 | our mccall getaway about a month ago was so so, so much fun. we managed to squeeze in lots of lake time, some biking, some walking, some family time, and of course...s'mores. 

5 | and of course...lots of backyard pool time. with a top, or's fun regardless. i mean...i don't think i could pull off topless swimming, but my turtle...she's got that in the bag for at least one or two more years. 
let's go out and enjoy the rest of our warm summer days...and daydream of crisp fall mornings, boots, scarves...and not being pregnant.

oh! and if you're linking that too.


  1. I'm so sad that we're already doing summer recaps....why is it over already??? I'm planning my recap for next week. :(

  2. Such a good idea. There's always those moments we don't blog about but what to. I love the top less swimming!! Also let's reverse and go back to summer.

  3. It looks like you had a great summer! And your little bump is so cute :) It's funny because I felt like I couldn't wait to have my little one when I was pregnant, and didn't really enjoy it much, but now I miss it!

    Have a good weekend!

  4. Turtle pulls off the topless swimming like a pro. She should offer classes on it:) And, seriously, you and your little family are just too cute for words. Get on your short bus, and get on out of here. You're making the rest of us look bad:) Glad you guys had such a good summer. Can't wait to see what shenanigans you guys get up to this fall - especially when there's one more of you!:)

  5. Summer fun! I want ruffled bikini bottoms :)

  6. Thanks for hosting! Can't believe summer is winding down :( looks like you all are enjoying it!

  7. I don't want Summer to be over but it looks like you guys have had a wonderful one!!! I love all the pictures and Turtle definitely pulls of topless swimming. That is awesome you guy bought a short bus, you will have so much fun with it!!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!
