This Summer: A Photo Recap

If you’ve been following the blog or my Instagram or Twitter you’ve seen how busy my Summer has been. I still laugh thinking back to when Jason said that this year needed to be vacation-less because last year was so crazy. This has definitely been our busiest Summer yet and even though we still have one major-ish vacation left I wanted to share some of my favorite memories that you may or may not have seen.

The top two photos are from Memorial Day, Jackson’s first time at the beach! He was such a beach-bum we can’t wait to bring him back! The other picture was our view from the top balcony of the house we rented. It was a fantastic place!

Have an explosive week.

Under the Oaks blog: Have an explosive week.(image via)

I am exploding with excitement this week! (Sorry I couldn’t help it!) Fourth of July, which happens to be one of if not my most favorite of the holidays, is only a few days away. Since it’s on a Thursday this week, my work decided to give us a four day weekend!

This year, Jason, my sister, her husband, and I had plans to be in Chicago and watch the fireworks from Navy Pier, an item on my bucket list. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to make the plans work for this year but none-the-less we will be spending the holiday the way we like to spend it, with family. We also made last minute plans this weekend to head to the beach for a few days. Impromptu vacations tend to be the best and when they are in Wilmington, they are even better! And who knows, if we start making plans now, maybe next year I’ll be able to take my own version of the picture above in NYC!

Are you going anywhere exciting for the Fourth? Please share so I can live vicariously through you! Hope y’all have an explosive week!
