Well we are finally having some warmer weather and that means summer is in full swing. Plans are underway for all of the fun things we will be doing this summer! Summer always seems to fill up so fast with things to do but it’s always fun and great to get outside in the warm weather!
First up in June we have Andrew and Kristen’s wedding! That, I would say, is the highlight of our summer. 🙂 After that, Andrew and Kristen will head out on their honeymoon. I can’t wait to hear about it so stay tuned for a blog post on where they went and what they did! Next up is Strawberry Fest in Cedarburg, WI. I haven’t had the chance to go yet but it is something I want to make an effort to go check out because I’ve heard it is amazing! Then the final weekend of June Brian and I have a friend’s “Deck Party”. They have a big get-together every summer with family and friends and it’s always a good time.
July of course has 4th of July festivities. I think Ella will get to watch fireworks this year if she can manage to stay up for them. Andrew and Kristen will have River Falls Days the second weekend in July. River Falls Days is when Andrew proposed to Kristen last year! The third weekend we all go back to Minnesota for a the Anna Rogtozke Kickball Tournament. We’ve been playing in it for years so it’s become a tradition and is always a good time!
Finally we are in August! The first weekend in August is the Wisconsin State Fair. We usually go with my parents and the kids are getting older so they are starting to enjoy it more too! Also in early August, Kristen and Andrew are headed to Florida for Kristen’s cousin’s wedding. The second weekend in August we have Brian’s family reunion which is at a lake so if the weather is warm enough the kids can enjoy some swimming!
That right now is all of our plans for the summer and I’d say that is plenty! I’m sure more things will come up though. What are your summer plans? Do you have any summer traditions you do every year?
