What Did You Do This Summer?

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.




I love having my kids home for summer break. I enjoy the lazy days of sleeping in, no homework, no making school lunches, and no schedules to speak of. In the summer, I don't have to set my alarm; instead I just roll out of bed when my kids' fighting the sun wakes me.

But, as summer winds down and my kids' boredom increases, I get anxious for the routine that school provides. That's a nice way of saying, "Ohmygosh, if I hear my kids fight one more time, I'm gonna lose it!"

The most fun thing my kids and I did this summer was take a trip to the Outer Banks, NC. The twenty-four hour drive there was less than fun, but once we arrived - ahhhh. We had the best time! We spent long hours in the ocean and hanging out together in our rented beach house. In the morning, we collected seashells on the beach. At night, we took walks together in the sand. We curled up in the lounge chairs on the deck and ate dinner in the evening while listening to the sound of the surf.



Despite our awesome vacation, I just know when the kids go back to school and their teachers ask, "What did you do over summer break?" my kids are going to say something like, "We played in the sprinkler in our backyard!" But that's okay because it's not so much where you go or what you do that matters. It's those little moments of fun and laughter with each other that they'll remember.

Fortunately, my son is still young enough that he won't be headed to school this fall, but we've been enjoying the cooler evenings by taking walks after dinner.

Anjie said...

I wish we had some kind of "end of summer" tradition but we don't. I love back to school shopping but my son doesn't so that doesn't happen. I can't wait for school to start though, I am so ready for the fighting between the kids to STOP!

Ben and Melissa James said...

We live in AZ. So Summertime is hot, hot, hot! We like to go to California and spend lots of time at the beach!

Shannon said...

As the kids are getting ready to go back to school, I just like to remember the beginning of summer when I was looking forward to them being out of school. It makes me stop and enjoy the kids even more to know that I was actually looking forward to spending the summer with them :)

Carrie said...

We tried to cram as much in as possible from their summer to do list that didn't' get done and didn't cost a fortune! Like: going to the park, bike ride, games, and play in front yard. We've been back three weeks and I miss those lazy days with no homework!

sy said...

the picture looks like it was worth the long drive :D i don't have kids yet >.< i'd like to go to the waterpark or the zoo with my bf, and go hiking with my parents.

We're trying to fit in as much swimming as possible before it gets too chilly!

Tina said...

I live in North Carolina so we love trips to the beach. My kids are 5, 3, 3 and 18 months so it can be pretty nuts trying to keep up with them all anywhere we go, but the beach is always fun as long as we don't lose sight of them!

Shannon said...

We've yet to go to the splash pad. It's about an hour away and I always end up just going to my sister's house/pool instead. I really should take them to the splash pad before Fall arrives.

Colleen said...

My kids are enrolled in a drama camp to end the summer. We tend towards being really busy with each other for the first part of the summer and then the last two weeks, I ship 'em out!

Sara said...

the girls favorite summer thing to do is to swim or play in the water hose.

Veronica said...

I have a freshman and a senior. we actually have "game nights" and just act silly! I can fly free, so I take little "day trips" each on their own to make it "special."
We are looking forward to a new school year!

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

I love to sit around in the evening and get some "Scattergories" or "Boggle" game time in.

Kendra Field-Bennett said...

We love playing Farkle (dice game) with our boys, it's easy enough that we can all play and help eachother out.

Nicole said...

We are fitting in a trip to the zoo tomorrow. We will also fit in a few more trips to the city pool before it closes until next summer. We definitely will be spending time outside, since we are stuck inside for 4 long months of winter!

Anita said...

We like to go to the grandparents' swimming pool. Gets us out of our house (and out of our routine) and they get to interact with other people. But the one thing I like the most is the cuddling. My boys, 6 and 8, still like to cuddle in the evening. It is a great way for us to reconnect and love on each other without "gushing". :) Don't know what I am going to do when they get bigger.

Sarah said...

We're in FL, so our summer includes a lot of indoor time in air conditioning. But on those rare and random low humidity days, we love to stroll around Epcot at WDW, grab a snack (or adult beverage), and people watch. We also love the pool!

Simple Country Girl said...

A couple weeks before school starts back, our county fair takes place. The kids LOVE the fair and so do I, but it wears us all out! My oldest daughter showed horses, goats, sheep, and a dog this year. She did very well but it made for a long summer with all the animal practices every week!

Jessica Sorensen said...

We are going to squeeze in one more trip to the beach and a pseudo camping trip, camp fire, smores, ect but no staying the night. We have a newborn.

KathyGTwins said...

Well, school starts Monday and we me the girls' teachers last night so I feel like summer is over! They have their last day of camp today and a pool party tonight and we'll just chill over the weekend. They're ready to go back to school!

No kids here. Hubby and I like to invite friends over for a farmers market meal and board games like "Loaded Questions", "Apples to Apples" and "Smart (other name for donkey)".

Our tradition is actually on the first day of school. At the end of the day, I pick the kids up and we go for ice cream and talk about the day. I hear all about who is in their classes and their first impressions of their new teachers.

Something we love to do as the summer winds down is go camping and enjoy the outdoors!!! Would love to win!! Thanks ani_allen@hotmail.com

heyteach said...

Since I teach, the end of summer is spent in my classroom with my boys "helping" set up my classroom (because fighting with each other and throwing koosh balls at the posters on the wall is awesomely helpful).
After all the stress of shopping, set up, scheduling, etc. I take the last day before I go back as a pj day. We just hang out, with no plans and no shoes and enjoy the last lazy day till next summer.

Linda Fleming said...

Anything that will help us stay cool. That is sometimes hard to do in Arizona. So I go with my grandchildren to the movie, the pool. And if they aren't too busy with their swim and dive teams, we like to take them to San Diego. they love the beach and Sea World.

I would love to just take the kids Oklahoma to go canoeing.

Northern IL here and we just got back from nags head! I do have to admit that the drive with a 3 and 1 yr old was less than stellar but we are planning on making it a yearly event. We rented a lovely tiny cottage right on the ocean so worth every cent, more coupon clipping here I come

We like to do day trips, the zoo, bowling, swimming at the Ymca.

Hide inside as it feels like 100 degrees here in August. I would like to do more but with a toddler and an infant, it's not going to happen.

Rox said...

When I was a stay-at-home mom I loved the end of summer because it meant the kids were going back to school and I'd get the house to myself for a few hours. Then I got divorced and had to go to work. I'm a teacher so the end of summer means I have to go back to work. It's kind of depressing but the kids and I like to go back to school shopping for all of us.

Lisa said...

We go to the beach at the end of the summer. Just got back. Unfortunately next year we will have to go earlier because my son will start school.

The Dickinson Diaries said...

during the summer we like to blow up the inflatable pool and let our daughter have the time of her life. going to the actual pool around here costs an arm and a leg, so this is our cost effective way of keeping her tired so she naps well... haha! looking forward to next summer when our son will get to enjoy it! :O)

Barbara Manatee said...

I'm a teacher and LIVE for my summers with my kids. We have been on the go non-stop and have had a blast. I head back to work next week and we are cramming in so much these next few days...but sadly didn't do everything we hoped to this summer! Maybe early fall we can fit a few things in :-)

Allie said...

We are getting back in touch with all our school friends .. playdates at eachothers houses, bowling and the splash pad.

Anonymous said...

Water, water, water. Weather its just a tub full in the driveway or an actual swiming pool my kids love it. ...and so do Mom and Dad! We also go to lots of parks and pack lunch or breakfast. They have a blast, and also get nice and worn out for nap time!

We don't have traditional "summer" since my kids are preschool and infant ages, but we are wrapping up the season with a trip to California to visit a dear friend and her 4 kids. It should be fun for the kids and Mama will get to test out her parenting skills flying alone with a 3 year old and 11 month old.

Laura G said...

Swimming before pool closes, sprinkler when mommy can't leave home, wave-boarding as much as possible, one last trip to the beach, barbequing dinners and having campfires! Oh, and maybe we'll go school supply shopping!

Anonymous said...

Our summer routines are hanging out at the pool or the park. Then when the kids leave for 3 weeks to go to there dads I enjoy my peace and quiet around the house.

We are slowly getting back to a normal sleep/wake schedule and I'm trying to schedule some "schoolwork" time each day to do some reading and math facts, getting some last minute back to school shopping done, and we hope to make one last trip to our local amusement park.

I'd like to try and go on a Whale Watch. I think my daughters would really enjoy it.

I just got a National Parks Pass, and I want to visit Fort Pickens, so we can have a picnic at Gulf Islands National Seashore before it gets too cold.
