Summer Soccer with British Soccer Camp

One of the boy's favorite summer activities has been participating in Challenger Sports' British Soccer Camp.

This year marks the fourth year he has been able to attend the program and, once again, we very much enjoyed the camp.

The Lost Letters by Sarah Mitchell {Review}

More vacation reading fun, although this one was finished at home.

I have a penchant for historical fiction and epistolary novels, so when I read about The Lost Letters by Sarah Mitchell on NetGalley, I had to request it for one of my summer reads.

Copper Mountain Summertime Fun, Raised on a Colorado Summer

On the way back from our California road trip, we had the chance to spend a few days at Copper Mountain to enjoy their summer activities.

I love the mountains and ski country, but I've actually never been there in the summer! This was a great treat for all four of us and the perfect way to end our family vacation.


In case you're wondering, what do you do at a ski resort when there's no snow?  Trust me, there are a lot of options!

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin {Review}

Summer vacation just wrapped up, but not before getting to enjoy a few great summer reads.

We spent a lot of time in California and Colorado relaxing, which for me means a lot more book time.  I had a few new Netgalley titles to read and All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin was on that list.  It's definitely a can't put down book--I had to stay up extra late to finish it.

Disney's Christopher Robin Coloring Pages

I've always been a huge Winnie the Pooh fan, especially with classical illustrations.

My oldest daughter's nursery was even done in classic Winnie the Pooh, with soft yellows and a pretty aqua and all the characters.  It is no surprise that I am dying to see Disney's Christopher Robin when it releases.

Colorado Renaissance Festival {Colorado Outings}

One of our favorite summertime activities in Colorado is definitely Colorado Renaissance Festival!

We were so excited to have the chance to go back to Larkspur this year, after missing a few summers while we lived in Washington.  It was great to see some of our favorite acts and discover some new ones, along with eating a whole lot of yummy food.
