Summer is heavy this week. The weather has been warmer and more humid than usual and we have been on the go since before Alaska. The kids stay up well past bedtime, snuggled on the couch after baths and showers and we don’t set an alarm before bed. The house starts to fill with cool air from the bay breeze. I’m having a hard time grasping a familiar sense of home right now. We’re going on another trip soon and shortly after Aiden will start 5th grade. It seems like yesterday we were on a mad-dash road trip before he started first. Before I know it we will be back into the usual routine, waiting for our next adventure to come along.

  1. I don’t enjoy much about summer in AZ, but when I lived in Utah I loved the crispy nights outside. The weather is just perfect there all summer long!

  2. Love the pics! You can sense the heat and the humidness in the air! It’s the rainy season here right now. So it’s cooler than normal and raining all the time. I’m really looking forward to some heat 🙂

  3. My favourite part about (THIS) summer especially, is meeting new friends, exploring my new home town, and hanging out with you and your family – serious! 🙂

  4. it’s been humid here too, this week. like, i-don’t-want-to-be-in-anything-but-running-clothes-and-no-makeup-because-i-end-up-feeling-sticky-thanks-to-the-humidity humid. it’s not too fun.

  5. Your children are so adorable! This is our last summer before everything changes, Bobby starts kindergarten, I go back to work, and Cordelia starts at the dayhome – we are trying to make the most of it, it goes by too quick.

  6. I love the idea of your pictures series. Also I saw that you were going to Blog Her. I had to sell my ticket since my friends wedding is this weekend. I hope I can live vicariously through your pictures!

  7. I love summer, but I’ve been in Garmisch, Germany for the past two months and it’s been raining like crazy here. I work with my mom on a military base and it seems to be sunny when we’re working and rainy when we’re off! 🙁 Haven’t done ANY hiking yet! I don’t know where the heck summer has been… it’s like it skipped right over Bavaria!

    1. I always use our panini pan (not press) to grill food inside, lol. It’s cooler than turning on the oven and easier than trying to light a bbq. 🙂

  8. We don’t get great summers over here in the UK, but this year it has actually been super hot. I hate the hot nights but am so appreciative of the weather and enjoying warm nights outside!
