It's you and me in the summertime...

Fall is finally upon us, and I could not be happier! The trees are starting to give over to the explosion of color they will become, the nights are chilly, and my Uggs are out. It's my favorite time of year, and I am thrilled it is upon us!

With Fall here and school in full swing, summer seems like a thousand years ago. We quickly fell in to our new routine and the lazy, hot days of summer are replaced with morning alarms, school clothes, and new television shows.

Before summer ended, we spend a week in Ocean City, Maryland with our family. I was going through some of the pictures from the trip, thinking about how lucky PJ is to live so close to the ocean and how much fun it was to escape beach-side for a week. PJ absorbed all that the vacation had to offer.

Huge ocean waves...


Beach snuggles with Daddy...


Loading the cargo cars in the hotel room...
(and, whenever we took our eyes off of him, throwing things off the balcony)



Ski-Ball in the arcade, where everything reminded him of Wreck-It, Ralph...


Whirling boardwalk rides with big cousins...


Looking up at the lights of the giant ferris wheel...


...and out over the roller coaster...



...and a break for delicious Dumsers Ice Cream. 

We had a beautiful summer, full of adventure and fun, new things and old favorites. It was the last summer before my baby started full-day school, and it was a glorious one. Now we are well into Fall, and have ushered in all of the new that comes with it. The leaves are changing, and so are we, but it's nice to take a look back at the hot, now-gone summer.
