Summer's Last Hurrah

This weekend was the last beach camping trip of the summer. One last chance to be together all day and play before going back to the daily grind of school and everything that comes with it.

I feel like we did a good job of savoring the moment and making the most out of it.

We were in good company with yummy food, blue skies, glittering golden sand and warm water.


It was a hot weekend, but we kept cool in the water and with some shaved ice and yummy drink concoctions.


These two gals finally got brave (or hot) and splashed it up in the baby waves. When they weren't arguing over which of them was Elsa, they were wearing pink high heels in the dirt, coloring, singing songs and bossing their brothers around.


The boys body surfed, karate chopped and boogie boarded these waves non-stop.

When it got too hot there were puzzles, Jenga, good music and Smashball which I am really horrible at, but am also kind of in love with now!

It was summer's last hurrah. But it doesn't mean summer is over, it just means we won't be able to enjoy it quite as freely, but we will still enjoy it in other ways. 

I feel comforted by the fact that we didn't waste a minute of it! It was a packed summer spent with parties, festivals, family, friends and loved ones. What more could we ask for.


  1. This is so beautiful! They look so joyous. I remember days spent at the shore when I was a kid. I will have to take more beach walks in the fall to keep that summer spirit going :) Thanks for sharing!

    1. Aw thank you! Yes I'm hoping these will be the days they remember when they are all grown up.
