Goodbye summer.

Well tomorrow is OFFICIALLY the first day of fall.. so with that, let's discuss how that summer bucket list went down...

--Take Grace swimming. // nope. We only went to the pool once, and it was Saturday.. and it was breezy. BUT I have plans to hopefully start taking little missy to Aquatots at the pool on post.

--Make Rob's first father's day a memory he will cherish for years to come. // check. here.

--Have professional 6 month pictures taken of baby girl. // check. I had my cousin take a few.  So we didn't go to a studio, but I did get some good ones that I love!


--Finally graduate. // check. here.

--Go garage sale-ing.. more than once. // sort of... I think I went once.

--Host many barbeques. // sort of... we had 2? So many may be a stretch.

--Attend a fireworks display over July 4th weekend. // check. We went to the one on base and our own little one out front.  More here.

--Cherish every moment with all the family coming to see us this summer. // check!! We enjoyed every second of our family time.

--Whip the yard into shape.. as in pull weeds, trim bushes and tidy it all up. // nope. In fact.. I'm pretty sure the yard only got mowed like once this summer... just pitiful.

--Start taking regular walks with Grace and Piston.  Maybe Rob too. // nope. It was hot. I despise hot.  Maybe this fall. 

--Eat on the patio at a restaurant over in the a/c. // check. We ate at our favorite Mexican restaurant that has an amazing patio sitting area!

--Light up the fire pit some night... sit around it with family or friends. // nope.  Just never got around to it.  Maybe before Rob returns to WOCS.

--Finally (hopefully) scoop up some fantastic gently used patio furniture! // nope.. and no immediate plans either.

--Invite friends with babies over for play dates. // not really... I did sign Grace up for a playgroup on base that is starting sometime later this year.

--Redo our master bedroom, once and for all. // I've started.  Our above the bed art is updated.. so that's a start.

--Take tons of pictures.. of EVERYTHING. // check.. duh!

Ten of 16.. not too bad.. maybe the other 6 will be accomplished by the end of the year? Hard telling.

How did your summer bucket list go?!

  1. It's so cute that she's sitting under the maternity photo! And fall in Georgia is pleasant, so you'll be able to enjoy fires whenever you want.

  2. I still haven't taken Evelyn swimming either. She's dipped her feet in the ocean, but no actual getting into the water at the beach or the pool. There's a swim class that she can start once she turns one, so I'm hoping that we can fit that into our schedules.

  3. You did well!! My summer consisted of 60+ hour work weeks. No fun. We managed some fun on the weekends and I was able to go home a few times but nothing crazy. It seems like you enjoyed your summer with your precious little girl though!

  4. That last picture is absolutely precious!

  5. pretty accomplished list!! I love that last picture!
