The Last Days of Summer in Pink and Light Blue

 Hi everyone!  We had a lovely weekend and I hope that you did too!  Friday night I decided to do an outdoor movie and backyard camping with my boys.  I thought it would be such a fun ending to our summer break.  It started to get cloudy during our movie and by the time we finished it was sprinkling a little bit.  Josh tried to talk me out of it, but I couldn't let the boys down.  They were so excited about backyard camping.  Well, in the middle of the night we woke up to hard rain and constant flashes of lightening.  The boys were pretty scared (except one who snored on) and we ended up running for the house.  In the morning we went in the backyard to find that our tent poles had snapped and our lovely tent that has provided so many fun memories broke!  I am so glad that we left or it would have fallen on us, but I was so sad that happened.
Our sad tent :(
 We also went to my nieces baptism this past weekend.  It was so special.  I love days like these.  She was so happy she was glowing!

Right now I am torn between wanting to get a last wear out of my summer clothes and jumping into the fall clothes that I love so much (and I just got some seriously CUTE boots this past weekend!!!)
Tomorrow we are going to do a few fun things with the boys and then focus on getting our act together for school.  tomorrow night we are having a "back to school" party!!  Can't wait.  The boys are so excited and I think we got some pretty amazing teachers this year!

What are you all doing for Labor Day!  I hope it is a wonderful day for you1

  5. Aww, that stinks about the tent! But I'm glad you guys ran back to the house before it broke. It's still way too warm for fall clothes and I'm sure I'll be wearing my summer ones for a while :)
