Soaking it all up …

… as it is our last week of summer break!


I’m not ready for my days with my little guy to be over and for him to be back at school for the majority of the day.

So, we’re making the most of these days {which means me staying off the computer as much as I can} with swimming, playdates, crafternoons, water parks and lots of yummy baking eating. Did I mention swimming? And sun? And more sun?

A lot of our daily ‘down time’ activities have been sponsored by Pinterest. They’re so nice that way … providing endless amounts of inspiration.

On our crafternooning list::
{I think we’ll finish some of these this weekend and then over the next few Fridays as a nice way to celebrate the weekend. I had hopes of a whole week of crafts, but we just played too much to fit all hardly any of them in.}
