our summer 2020 family diary.

summer has winded down and the weather is cooling off. the kids are off and back to school and the summer of 2020 is behind us. this summer was certainly different than all others; a whole lot less distractions with a large majority of places being closed.

but truthfully, it was nice. rather than rushing around between places to go, we filled our days with each other instead. we spent so much time together and i’ll forever be thankful for that.

so what did our summer of 2020 look like? a whole lot like this….

visiting the campground and kayaking

one of my favorite places to visit is the campground that i spent most of my childhood weekends at. my parents have a seasonal site there and it’s the perfect little place to get away.

we spent one day kayaking down the river and it was so relaxing. i’m looking forward to taking the kids with us sometime. i know they will love it; especially mason.

birthday celebrations

summers in our home are always full of birthdays. we started summer by celebrating john’s birthday with having family over and ordering pizzas.

in july miss kaylei turned 12 and we took her to a hotel with her cousins to celebrate. we enjoyed the pool for two days straight and the kids all had a blast. i still can’t believe our girl is going to be a teenager next year!

getting a new car

we finally bit the bullet and bought ourselves a new car that would fit all 6 of us. this is our new baby and i’m more than obsessed with it!

backyard parties

one of my favorite things about summer is just being able to hang outside with family and friends. we did plenty of that this summer and it was always so much fun. we would set up the bag set, break out the pool, and enjoy a few cocktails. looking forward to more days like these throughout the fall.

zoo trip

we rounded up most of the family and hauled everyone to the zoo one weekend. we spent most of the morning walking around and then had a picnic lunch out in the parking lot before heading home.

a trip to the sunflower field

it’s always been on my bucket list to visit a sunflower field and once i found out we had one not too far from us, we made a trip there. i got the girlies all dressed up in the cutest yellow outfits, threw some curls in their hair, and had a little photoshoot with them. they will forever be some of my favorite photos of them.

hope you all had a summer just as great as we did!
