Sweet summer days are officially here in Boise. Days full of swimming, bike riding, ice cream, and staying up way too late. I’m a routine person and being so off of our normal schedule admittedly gives me a bit of anxiety. However I know that getting back to “real life” with our structured routine will be back before we know it, so in the meantime I’m determined to soak up these days and embrace a fun and sugar filled summer.
Our neighborhood threw a block party last weekend, and it was a lot of fun playing games and getting to know some of our neighbors we hadn’t met yet! There were games, food, and even an ice cream truck – which of course the kids thought was so cool.
And because one ice cream isn’t enough…after the party we biked down to our favorite ice cream shop – The Stil! I even tried one of their “boozy ice creams” (a strawberry rośe) which was delicious.
We went to the waterpark again this week and spent an entire day there. I bought this swimsuit last summer and it’s still a favorite! It comes in several colors and several styles as well. And it’s on pretty major sale right now!
The kids have been wanting to live on their bikes, so we’ve been taking tons of rides. We even came across some deer grazing the other night just right off the trail!
We had a great 4th of July! We went downtown for the annual Liberty Day Parade in the morning, had a BBQ at home in the afternoon, and spent the evening picnicking in the park watching the big firework show.
Have a great weekend!
