Surfing Sunday 08.19

Aloha! We spent the last week on vacation in beautiful Maui, Hawaii. We had the best time relaxing, eating, going to the beach, eating, surfing, and eating. It was the perfect way to end our summer. I’ve had so much fun with the kids these last few months! But we are all very ready for school…

We’re squeezing in every last bit of fun before school starts in a few weeks. The kids and I have gone swimming, marshmallow-roasting, ice blocking, trampoline-jumping, and slip-n-sliding this week. It’s been fun but being Super Summer Mom is exhausting! But I keep reminding myself that I don’t know if I’ll ever have another summer…

Annie just finished her final camp of the summer (so many camps!) last week. This one was a musical theater camp, where Annie and the other kids put on Wizard of Oz/Wicked hybrid.

I had a really lovely birthday last week! Very low-key. The kids still had school and swimming (James is doing summer pre-k and swimming lessons, and Annie is on the swim team at our community pool), but I fit in yummy meals (breakfast with my parents and Annie, and dinner with Mike and the kids),…

Happy 29th (+10 years) Birthday, Mommy!

Hi everyone…Mike here! In honor of Heather’s 39th birthday, Annie and James were kind enough to give me an exclusive interview all about their mom! Mike: First, let me thank you both for taking time out of your busy schedules to chat with me today. First question: What is mommy’s favorite food? James: Salad! Mike: Really?…
