Hey Everyone! The annual party went great. Even though it was hot as hell, everyone seemed to have fun. I didn’t even think to take pictures honestly. I was just trying to get everything out and ready. We did buy misters for the deck and that did help during the day. Towards the end of the night it was more like a sprinkler system though. Between the misters and the 2 1/2 foot pool, it seems like no one over heated and everyone had fun. Till next year!
My 7 year old daughter had her first sleep over at a friends house last night. I was honestly a little sad. I missed her in the evening but she did call and she seemed to be having so much fun, so I was happy for her. According to my friend it did take her a while to fall asleep, but she did and slept through the night. So that’s good. My 10 year old son has had sleepovers at our house but he hasn’t actually slept out yet so this was really the first time I didn’t have the children home at night. It was weird for me, I think I’ll be okay. Haha.
I booked my birthday trip to Cape Cod in September. I love going to the cape in September. It’s right after the summer season and it’s usually not that busy but still beautiful and fun. This year my sister, niece and mom are coming too. This will be our 3rd trip there and their first. I can’t wait to just walk on the beach and look in the tide pools.
My mom came down from Cooperstown, NY for the summer party this past weekend. It was really good to see her. We talk most weeks but I haven’t seen her since March. We went to visit my dad’s grave on Sunday before she left to head back home. I cried in bed before we met up. I miss him. I missed him at the party. I miss him a lot. Tomorrow is the one year anniversary of his death and we have a department meeting at work. I just hope I’m not an emotional mess.
That’s where we are at for the Summer right now! Half way through and one more vacation to Virginia in a few weeks. I am looking forward to that. Tonight we are going to see the new Lion King movie. I will have a family review tomorrow.
How’s your summer going?
