Summer Family Vacation 2016 (photo overload)

We got home Saturday from a long vacation with family. It was a week filled with laughter, memories, sight-seeing and fun experiences all around. Also more time in the car than we've ever attempted with our three but we survived quite well.

There was a ferry ride, dunes to climb, hikes (which always included walking-stick-finding), geo-caching, some shopping, fun restaurants, pool time, a children's museum, and a little time at a beach.  Hubby and I even got some time to explore a few breweries and enjoy some time just the two of us while the kids went on adventures with Grandpa and Grandma.  It was a great week.

Here a few of the many, many photos I took...

A wonderful vacation away from our gravelly road full of memories to treasure and experiences shared.

Last Days of School

Tomorrow marks the beginning of summer break for our kiddos and they are pretty excited.

Little sister's last day of preschool was actually last week, so of course we took "last day" pics (including a pic with her first day of school picture) and celebrated with ice cream.

Then this morning we took pics again as our boys marked their last day of preschool (kindergarten bound) and 1st grade.

Our oldest had forgotten how nervous he was to start first grade which was evident when we got out his first day of school photo.  So much has changed!

They were in a silly mood and the pictures reflect that which I love.

We are so thankful that they each had wonderful teachers who poured into them all year.  Each kid grew and learned and rose to new challenges.  We are so proud. I can barely believe we'll have a second grader, kindergartner and preschooler in the fall.

Let the summer fun begin on the gravelly road!

Preschool Field Trip

Its field trip week here on our gravelly road.  On Monday I helped with an end of year play day for our daughter's preschool class (was supposed to include a trip to the park but that got rained out) and today chaperoned our son's preschool field trip to a local farm.  Little sister got to join in on the fun as well.  Not to be left out, big brother's first grade class field trip is this week as well.  I can feel the end of the school year coming...

Here's a few pics from the day at the farm.

A fun day of memories for these two exploring a farm not far from our gravelly road.

First Grade Field Day and Preschool Program

It was a big week for the boys last week.

Big Brother had his first field day on a cold and blustery day Thursday.  

He got to pick his 4 events so he did the 50m run, long jump, football throw and soccer kick.

Dad took part of the afternoon off plus Aunt Becca joined us.  It was a fun (chilly) afternoon as a family cheering on Big Brother and his friends.

Then on Friday Little Brother had an end of year preschool program complete with songs and actions. Each class had coordinated tie-dye shirts and teachers gave kids a certificate and gift.  So fun.

End of school year memories are filling up our days on Life on the Gravelly Road.
