Our Summer in Snapshots

The other day I was letting myself get bummed out, because it felt like we hadn't done "anything fun" yet this summer.

We haven't taken a vacation in over a year & have nothing planned for the near future.

It wasn't until I uploaded photos from my camera & phone that I realized I was being ridiculous... we don't necessarily have to travel to have fun.  We've done plenty of fun things this summer.  And most importantly, we've made lots of new memories with Ellis!

Some of our memorable summer snapshots, below:
