Summer Fun

The summer of 2014 will be known as the “The Baby Summer.” Or, the freakin’ hot summer. Or both. Thank God we got a new A/C unit at the beginning of summer! I’ve spent the summer at home with Vivian and will continue to do so until August 25 when I return to work:-( Vivian will start daycare after Labor Day. But…we’re not there yet! It’s still summer!

Vivian and I spend our weekdays meeting up with friends for walks, lunches, and other fun adventures and our weekends hanging out with Daddy and making family memories. Before it got too hot, we also went running 1-3 times/week in the jogging stroller. We get out of the house every day, even if it’s just to go grocery shopping. Vivian loves being out and about and seems so much happier when she has something else to stare at besides Mama’s face and the same tan walls of our town home all day. As much as she loves being out and about, though, she does not like riding in the car on city streets. Teleportation can’t be invented fast enough.

Here are some pictures from the fun we’ve had so far this summer. I’ll add to it over the next month, also.

    Awesome! (And you were worried you wouldn’t be able to do anything fun with a small baby!) The activities change as kids get older, but they’re always lots of fun! šŸ™‚
