Tommee Tippee Pacifiers summertime fun

This summer, I do have to say, it has not been very busy for us in way of traveling. I always feel so guilty looking on Facebook and seeing how much traveling everyone (but me!) is doing. It kind of makes me feel like a bad mom :/

I know though, that memories can be made anywhere! We don’t have to visit Disneyland or take off for the beach at a moment’s notice to make those memories. Sure, that sounds awesome (Disneyland?!), but those memories can be for a different year, just not this one.

So this year, we just ‘hung out‘. We played outside, made s’mores at night, stayed up LATE, went fishing (A LOT), watched movies, went swimming, played on the water slide, went to friends houses, had friends over and much more! Guess what? It was a fun summer and we DID make those memories!! Lots of summertime fun!!!

Yes, I still do wish we could have traveled to some far off place (man how I NEED a vacation, sigh..) but this was fine. I have to remember that the kids still had a great summer with their parents ๐Ÿ™‚ And my littlest one? He had a good summer too! He always has a pass in his mouth and a tommee tippee sippy cup in his hand! As long as he has those things, he is good to go!

How did you spend your summer? Did you travel or just stay at home, like we did?





  1. Glad you got to enjoy spending time with your family! I just stayed at home too.

  2. Looks like you had a great summer at home, we traveled so much, I wish I had taken more time for the slow quality times.

  3. You definitely had an eventful summer. I love the sweet pictures.

  4. Your kids are adorable! I’m loving your son’s faux hawk.

  5. we travelled once. then we stayed at home and had lake time.

  6. Staying at home and spending time with family are usually the best vacations! Disneyland is overrated!

  7. The thing I liked most about your post was the idea that it is always a good time to make memories. I am always aware of the memories I want to create for my children.

  8. We did a couple Staycations including going to Universal Studios and SeaWorld!

  9. So much just to hang out. Wonderful pictures

  10. These photos are adorable! Looks like you really enjoyed your summer.

  11. Love it! Looks like a nice summer! Travel is harder when the kids are that age, but summers are easier. They’re are amazed so easily at that age! I miss it.

  12. Looks like you all have been having a blast! We did light travel.

  13. WE spent our summer traveling to visit family and hanging out by the kiddie pool!

  14. Considering that money is tight right now I’ve spent most of my summer inside. However next summer I am hoping to go on some vacations or a ComiCon!

  15. We did a fair amount of travel in July. This month, though, has been pretty much home bound. The weather hasn’t been too great, either!

  16. That bounce house sure looks amazing. Can’t believe fall is here!

  17. Oh your little guy looks tuckered out! Looks like the summer has been fun for the kids. Now onto fall!

  18. We actually did a lot of traveling this summer! Wish we were hanging more often. You had a great time!

  19. We did a lot of hanging out this summer too. However, we are going to Disney World in October, so we didn’t want to spend a lot of time or money on travel over the summer when our wallet is going to take a huge hit this fall lol.

  20. It looks like you made some great memories this summer! Thanks for sharing these pictures.

  21. I like summer with just a lot of hanging out. It looks like your family did too!

  22. How sweet! We made so many great memories this summer.

  23. We just stayed home. Would have loved to travel but staying home is just as fun because we made it fun.

  24. Such sweet pictures. We went to Palm Springs for the 4th and have one more small trip coming up. Mostly though, we’ve been home this summer.

  25. I stayed home pretty much the entire summer. I’m way to busy to leave.

  26. Your kids are so adorable! I love the pics. I pretty much stayed home this summer.

  27. What cuties!! Looks like you had a great summer. We went camping like 6 times and it was a blast!

  28. Your little one is too cute! You definitely don’t have to go far to be able to have a fun summer!

  29. Our last few summers have been very busy too, and on the go. This year we primarily stuck close to home, and it was really nice!

    We took two big trips this summer, one to the beach and one to DC to visit my sister. My best summer childhood memories are the ones from my neighborhood and hometown, so don’t feel bad about not going to Disneyland. The little ones are making memories, nevertheless!

  31. Tamra Phelps says:

    We just stayed home. To be honest, I hate traveling, so home is fine by me.

  32. Aww I love all the pictures your children are adorable! We did a stay-cation this year and went swimming and bike riding! We had a blast!

  33. When my kids were small we didn’t travel at all. We made staycations fun before they were so popular ๐Ÿ™‚ It looks like you had a fun summer around home.

  34. We didn’t travel much, either. But we still had a great summer!

  35. We traveled to St Louis for my Dad’s birthday and stayed home and did a lot of “staycation” things. I always wish we had more time. My husband worked a TON.

    We just got back from Disney World and we had a long weekend in New Hampshire in July. Other than that, we have spent the rest of the summer at the beach!
