Summer Of Buffy

Today is the last day of summer.


And maybe the first time I’ve blogged since… May? Damn. That’s kind of pathetic.

I wish I could say it was all because we had such a jam packed summer of adventure and good times, but nope, I’ve just been busy doing as little as possible for the past 3 months. Which, when you put it that way, is definitely closer to my idea of a good time than any adventure.

June was spent taking Sophie to summer school (she actually WANTED to do an extra month of full day school! Crazy kid), Bebe to the little library program, and… I don’t know. Waiting to pick Sophie up from school? Not a lot accomplished in June.

Most of July (and some of August) we spent in Steamboat, our favorite place on earth, made extra special this year by the fact that we missed all of days with a 115° heat index. I’ll take the warm days/ cool nights/ no humidity of the mountains over just about anything, but ESPECIALLY crippling summer heat!

I drove us out this time, so we split it into two days, and everyone reacted like a night in a Best Western made the trip even better than usual. Kids are weird.

The 3 oldest also took a little vacation from vacation and went to Illinois with Daddy for a family reunion, giving me a little one on one time with my Beebs.

Which was fun, but I let her sleep with me while they were gone and she never moved out. (Even after we got home *eye roll*)

And that’s about all I can tell you about our summer vacation. We were super lazy. We went to the pool, and, um, we went to the pool. That’s it.

It was awesome.

I didn’t even get out my fancy camera more than once, and I barely took any iPhone pictures of the kids either (although my camera roll shows a disturbing amount of selfies).

strapless bathing suit = naked selfies. whoops!

Instead we just relaxed and had fun.

It definitely didn’t suck.

In fact, I think the only thing I managed to accomplish this summer was watching all 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer with the 3 oldest kids. I’ve been waiting 12 years for this moment, and thankfully they all loved it as much as I do, so I don’t have to sell them just yet. (and it makes up slightly for the fact they keep refusing to read Harry Potter)

But alas, our lazy days of swimming all day and watching tv all night are over, and everyone’s nose is back on the grindstone starting tomorrow. When I will be child free most of the day for the first time in 11 years.

Which is its own kind of adventure!
