Summer Plans!

To say that we have a lot going on this summer is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!!

Emma's will get out of school the week of 17 June and we will start the summer of with a long weekend to Savannah, GA (My hometown)!

I cannot wait to go down there to see family & friends and to celebrate my brother who will be retiring from the Navy! The trip will of course include a trip down to Tybee Island so that Hunter can have his first beach experience!

I have a 2 day/1 night work trip at the end of June and a 2 night/3 Day trip the first week of July.

Cannot wait for July 4th so that we can watch the fireworks over Washington, D.C.! We actually have access to one of the very best locations and I will share more about that in a later July post...

In July Emma will head down to camp for two weeks!!! She is so excited to be heading back to Camp Winshape in GA.

This is the same camp that I went to growing up and we plan to continue the tradition with all of our kiddos! I'm also excited that (thanks to furlough) I will be able to both drive Emma down AND pick her up! (Typically I have only been able to take off from work to do one or the other...). The trips down to GA for camp will be sure to include some fun stops along the way... to include a night in Atlanta so that we can visit the World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium

While Emma is at camp I will do an international work trip. It is one that I am SUPER excited about and will share info after!

In August things continue to be crazy busy with a weekend wedding in Indiana for my cousin and a week in beautiful Traverse City, MI!

I mean just look at that water!!! A plus for going in August is that the water might be warm! We cannot wait to see family/friends (it is Matt's hometown), to go tubing, wine tasting, and I would love to add a tradition of cherry picking! It is something that we have not yet done in Traverse City which is CRAZY because it is the cherry capital of the world! Another thing that I've wanted to to for a while is a visit to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. Busybusy!

August will also bring a one week work trip to Washington State.

The family will come along as I will have a little free time and I'm looking forward to taking them out on a boat, fishing, whale watching, going to antique stores, and horseback riding!

In September school will start up and Hunter Man will be turning ONE!!! Where does time go??? 

We truly plan to make the most out of our summer and we have a HUGE list of fun items that we hope to check off! I will, of course, share our adventures as they happen or soon after (in the case of work related items)!

Stop back by this afternoon to check out our Summer Fun List!


  1. I would love to see you when you come to Rome if we can work it out! Granted I think the last time we saw each other was when we were Creeks together our last summer. :) Send me a message on fb if you are interested. What session is Emma doing? My house is ten minutes from campus.

  2. Can't wait to see all of you and to meet Hunter in August!!
