Part of experiencing life and creating memories for our family comes from sharing special times with friends.
It just happened the week before school started for our kids, that we were able to make some NEW memories. Ones we are still talking about.
4 hours of boating and jumping and swimming.
Moms catching up.
Enjoying the water.
Then back to a cabin where "dinner was served." (Can you believe, I didn't have to make a thing? Thank you Kimberly and Margo!) Adults outside, kids inside.
Cool hangout for the kids.
A pre-made, yummy breakfast casserole.
Easy, no work, sits overnight. Just bake and serve in the morning.
A few rounds of fun for the moms (Speed Scrabble) and a few rounds of fun for all the kids.
A 24 hour retreat that we all benefited from - that could only happen with good friends.
In past years we've tried to do something fun with our kids right before school started. We've gone to the coast, gone camping, and last year we went on this hike.
What special memories do you create before the school routine begins?
(Sorry, I thought for sure I had already put the breakfast casserole on my blog, but couldn't find the link. I will eventually share it. Thanks for your patience.)
