Yes, that was just in the first eleven days after school let out for summer. And don’t even get me started on the weather. The summer of 2014, with the exception of our super fun road trip to Cincinnati and Pittsburgh in August, was a totally horrible, terrible, no good, very bad, bummer summer.
Seriously, the trips to the fracture clinic continued on into September when X-man fractured his wrist on the third day of school. Technically, still summer.
Fast forward a year
Dare I say it, in the two weeks since school ended, we haven’t had to go to the hospital emergency room once! Not ONCE! Can I get a high five?
We are totally rocking this summer vacation thing.
Instead of hospital visits, we’ve been doing a little of this:
We’ve also been getting sweaty:
We’ve taken the library by storm:
And spent birthday money.
We’ve dined on surf…
We’ve spat out sunflower seeds under the bleachers, like a boss…
And felt our brains explode.
We got the best seats in the house for the July 1st fireworks:
And again at the Minions movie. But everyone know the best part is rehashing all the funniest scenes on the walk home.
And we haven’t even hit the cottage yet.
So basically, there’s still a chance this summer could go sideways. Nothing a bottle of wine and a dozen S’mores won’t fix, though.
