Happy Camper.

July 11, 2012

Summer! I hope all my clients and friends are enjoying your summers. Summers tend to fly by quickly in our house. So this year I saw an idea called the Summer Bucket List. I got the idea from Happy Family Movement and loved it. I let each of the boys pick a few ideas and we chose a couple for Grey. The ideas did not need to cost money and I tried to gear them around our existing vacation plans. These are things we want to do as a family before summer kicks the bucket.

Our summer bucket list:

My personal favorite is “try to eat corn on the cob with two missing teeth” =)

(Disclaimer: several of the photos in this post were taken with my phone )

So we have already crossed off many things… we visited the Philly Bike Race (great fun for kids!)

One of the big things the boys wanted on the list was camping. Well they go camping every year with my husband. I do not go. I am not a camper. But the kids wanted to go as a family and we decided to give that to my husband as a Father’s Day present. (think happy thoughts, right?)  I’m not a camper and we are going camping with a toddler. Yikes!

I did my research and thanks to some lovely ideas from Pinterest our camping trip went very well. (Have you fell in love with Pinterest, yet?) My husband admitted he has never eaten so well on a camping trip. I made a lot of things ahead of time… like my breakfast burritos and pasta salad seen below…. Here is the recipe for the campfire breakfast burritos They were super delicious.

 

We camped at Tobyhanna State Park, I highly recommend this state park. The lake is great! A nice beach, great play areas for the kids. The bathroom/showers are new too. Again I’m not a wonderful camper but this place made me enjoy it more. We really did have a good time. I do think two nights a year might be the max for me until Grey gets older. We also drove to Big Pocono State Park. Amazing panoramic views of the Poconos.

It is nearly impossible for me to get a “perfect” photo of my three boys. I do enjoy this photo because it is so rare my middlest naps in the car anymore and we have photo proof now he just woke up from a nap.

My middlest is showing off the bottom of his campfire cone another Pinterest favorite!

 

It’s not too late to make a fun summer bucket list with your children. Even if they are little like my Grey! These warm, fun months go by too quickly.

And our list as of last week…. crossing them out is the best part!

Thanks for stopping by!

Best,

Michelle

Apologies…

June 15, 2010

to all my blog readers for my lack of posting, blogging and general photo sharing. I can not believe it has been over two weeks since my last blog post. Apologies all around! Summer has come, my boys are home and family time has increased of course – I am still scheduling sessions and delivering beautiful memories to my lovely clients. I would love to catch up on some sneak peeks (no longer sneak peeks since Mom and Dad have seen their galleries -ha but new to my faithful blog readers.)

I do have a small announcement. Just a small one.

We will be expecting a new arrival in the Lindenmuth family in late November! Yes, I am expecting baby #3 and we are over-the-moon excited!

So we can pile that excuse onto my other excuses why my blog has been woefully neglected. =)

In addition to catching up on posting I will be adding a calendar for fall photo sessions in a next couple of days. My clients know I normally take Holiday clients until the end of November which will not be the case this year but I plan on being able to schedule all of you in before I take maternity leave. Feel free to email me or call me know to get those dates planned well in advance.

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Need some ideas for the kids? So far this summer my boys and I have checked out:

www.kidsbowlfree.com — sign up and take your kids to bowl for free. If your kids are anything like mine they have a short attention span for bowling so since it’s free it works perfectly!

http://pleasetouchmuseum.org/ have you been there yet? Why not? It is the best place in Philly for kids of all ages. Dad’s get free admission on Father’s Day too! Check it out.

http://www.co.delaware.pa.us/summer/ Outdoor concerts at Rose Tree Park. We have been going for years. The kids love it!

http://www.nps.gov/inde/index.htm Have you played Philly tourist lately? A couple of weekends ago we took the boys downtown and did the tour of Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. We even did a carriage ride through Society Hill and listened to the StoryTellers. It was a fun experience playing tourist for the day. Even though I often do photo shoots in Old City/Historic/Society Hill areas it was great fun experiencing it from the other side.

I will be posting more ideas throughout the summer. Have anything neat you have checked out with your little ones? Please email me or post in comments. I would love to feature it (and check it out myself.)

Thank you so much for reading! I will be posting again soon.

Best,

Michelle
