What a summer! Phew. Lots happened, lots is still happenin’, and our fall is lookin’ to be just as bonkers with some fun trips and amazing photoshoots all over the place… lets try and catch ya up. First up, we had our mugs shot by the the amazing Thrive Photography when Julie was visiting from Tennessee (image above and a few images scattered below are proof of her awesomeness – she just nails families and we’re so grateful to her for capturing our growing family). Speaking of, Joelle is about to turn FIVE (what the what?!) and Charlie is quickly approaching three. So nuts. This summer we constructed a Family Summer Bucket List (thanks to our friends over at the Happy Family Movement). The list had everything from swimming with Leopard sharks, to backyard campouts, beach bonfires, riding on a boat, jumping off a diving board, collecting seashells, fishing, beach bonfires, etc … all items on the list helped us make having fun together a priority this summer. Below you’ll find some images of our summer … 90% of it was spent in or around the water – which is what you’ll see lots of images of below :) … we just can’t help it, we’re a water family… and what’s a summer without a lot of pool parties and beach bbqs & bonfires with friends?
