Pickin' Blueberries

The absolute best thing about being a teacher is that for 2 months of the summer you get to pretend you are a stay-at-home mom.  I love spending everyday with Colton, the good and the bad LOL.

We try to get out and do something as often as possible.  Sometimes that is as simple as taking a walk around the block, and sometimes....we go blueberry picking!

It's been a really long time since I've been to a "pick your own" farm, and I had never taken Colton. 
Some friends invited us out to go picking with them, and Colton loved it.  I think he eat more than he put in the bucket, but it was a good time.....a HOT time, but good :)

Beach Baby

We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to go to the beach a few times a summer.  
I love when Chris joins us on vacation, but I also really love it when Colton and I get to spend some time with my family, just us.

He is one of the best behaved children, I swear!  It makes it so you can do anything, because he's just such a good boy!  I am truly so very blessed.

We went out to dinner the last night we were there, and to say the service was crappy is an understatement.  We waited over an hour for a table when they told us it would be about 20 min.  But the whole time we waited Colton just watched the guy playing guitar in the lobby.  He actually had a really great time and enjoyed the biggest grilled cheese I've ever seen, and got some ice-cream as a treat.  Seriously....such a wonderful kid. <3

Summa Summa Summa-time!

I am so excited that summer is here! (Actually its been here for a while, but I've been busy).  Being a teacher, I get the chance to experience stay-at-home life with my little buddy for a few weeks in the summer.  And we LOVE it!!!

We've been to the beach once already, and we are going back
 next week.  We plan on taking a few "field trips" this summer to the zoo, the ice-cream factory, and maybe the aquarium.  But as far as daily, we usually take our time getting up and moving in the morning, have breakfast, take a walk, and sit by the baby pool before lunch. 

It's been so relaxing and I am loving spending all this time with my boy.  He is growing so fast, and I have to say, this is my FAVORITE age so far!
