Working on our Summer Plans

It’s Charlie’s first summer so we are working on some summer plans!  Honestly, I don’t think I can ever get enough of summer and I hope Charlie is the same way.  I, especially loved summer as a child.  The neighborhood kids and I were outside all day long swimming, swinging, and running around.  By the evening we would cool off with a fresh piece of watermelon.  One summer we kept spitting the seeds out by our driveway that by the end of the summer we had ourselves a pretty large watermelon!  It was such a fun surprise and something that had to be photographed.

I think it’s safe to say Charlie shares the same love for watermelon as her Mama.  We’ve been incorporating solids into Charlie’s diet and she is always ready to chomp on a juicy piece of melon!   

Since this Summer is going to be Charlie’s first Summer, we have to make it extra special!  There are going to be lots of first and I cannot wait to document it all.  This little nugget has been growing with curiosity and adventure awaits!

Here is what we plan on doing:

  1. 1. Splashing around in the pool
  2. 2. Eating lots of melon (and trying lots of new foods)
  3. 3. Head to the beach
  4. 4. Nightly neighborhood walks (and chatting with the other parents with littles running around)
  5. 5. Basque in the sunshine
