summer 2016 / i want to remember.

This week, on Thursday to be exact officially marks the start of fall.

I am ready for fall.  Summer is a favorite, but I am ready for a change. Always look forward to wear scarves, long sleeved shirts and hoodie sweatshirts! Waking up and making a cup of hot tea because it's warm, blankets, pumpkins, and cinnamon spiced candles.  Decorating our house for the holidays and celebrating Thanksgiving with our families.
As we wait for Fall to arrive, I want to take a look back at summer twenty sixteen. This summer has been pretty exciting.
And so, from summer 2016...

I want to remember that I perfected how to grill a steak to my liking.

I want to remember the smell of grilling out all the time.

I want to remember Hadley finally sleeping through the night at the lake.

I want to remember that bright pink Essie nail polish was all I wanted to wear.

I want to remember going in the ocean for the first time with Hadley.

I want to remember going on walks every morning during vacation.

I want to remember getting our car stolen on vacation too. Such madness.

I want to remember George panting like it's his first walk ever after each walk we did.

I want to remember having two sets of sunglasses because I lose them all the time.

I want to remember both sets of sunglasses were in the stolen car.

I want to remember encouraging each other on this journey we are on.

I want to remember Hadley started taking showers with her Daddy.

I want to remember going to the Jimmy Buffet concert and it not being gross hot out for once!

I want to remember Hadley loving it outside, even if she gets eaten by bugs just like her mama.

I want to remember watching Hadley grow up to be a fun little girl.

I want to remember Brady being such a great big brother, he has a special bond with Hadley.

I want to remember Natalie giving her baby dolls and little girl toys to Hadley to play with.

I want to remember Hadley wants everything her big sister has, all the time.

I want to remember Hadley jumping off the dock ladder at the lake.

I want to remember Natalie finally going tubing in the gigantic tube.

I want to remember Hadley going tubing at one years old with her big sissy Natalie.

I want to remember this summer as truly a memorable one.

Tomorrow is the last day of summer!
