Summer Solstice

We had an incredible first day of Summer!  
Waffle truck, water park, bbq, bonfire, & s'mores.  
These are things summers are made of!

We went to the water park a few times last summer, and while Liam liked it then, he LOVES it now.  He did slide after slide after slide.  Jumped in the water & climbed right back out.  He is an expert at this; elbow elbow, knee knee!  The boy never stopped moving or splashing.  Only thing the little man did not like: innertubes!  The lazy river was not for him.  Ain't nobody got time for that!

He played hard the entire time, and then as soon as his little head hit the back of the carseat, he was out for a long nap!  I took one the guest bedroom...with absolute no noise or interruptions for 1.5 hours.  It was glorious!  I woke up refreshed to do some puzzles & pull weeds (currently Liam's two favorite activities).  Then we barbecued lamb, steaks, & veggies and even coaxed Liam into eating most of it with the promise of chocolate.  My boy can't get enough chocolate!

He wore off any remaining energy he had with the neighbor girls, and then it was an early bedtime for him.  Conor (fire builder extraordinaire) got a nice little bonfire going just as the sun was setting.  S'mores were made, wine was poured, & friends gathered.

I know this summer is gonna be a good one!
Hope everyone enjoyed all the day light this summer solstice!


  1. I wish we had a water park nearby that's suitable for little kids! We have a splash pad and our pool but those slides sound like fun! And how perfect to end the day around the fire pit!

  2. We are loving the waterpark, too!!' They would have a blast together!!

  3. I love your firepit! And you guys are welcome to visit Kentucky anytime to help us pull our weeds...that has to be my LEAST favorite activity! :)

  4. Oh wow, I'm so jealous of your weekend. It sounds amazing! Mac would love that water slide!

  5. Looks like a great start to summer!! :) I'm anxious to see our little guy at the pool, etc. this summer too as a year makes such a difference in their interests/abilities.

  6. Girlfriend, I can already tell that you have a fabulous summer ahead of you!! Those water park pictures are too cute!!

  7. oh, you did it right!! Love that he is so into the sliding and water...the lazy river has too much lazy in it for him =)

  8. this looks like the best time ever! love his little swim trunks. so cute!

  9. How fun is that!!! I wish there was a water park around here that was good for little kids. I feel like they all have such big kid slides where Mason would for sure drown if he tried to go on them.
    And also, waffle truck?!?! Umm, yes please. Send him on my way!
