Summer Break: Week 10

This is IT! Summer break is officially OVER!!  I still can't believe 10 weeks went by SO fast!!! Even though our summer was jammed packed with fun activities and incredible adventures and the girls are SO ready for school, it's always bitter sweet to know that for the next 9 months it won't all be fun and games! :)
This week was great.. very low profile as we prepared for the "routine" that comes along with the beginning of the school year...
The girls spent a lot of time at home and really enjoyed it.
Class lists were posted so they both know what to expect tomorrow, but I'm sure there are still jitters and anxiety....

We got a new kitten...her name is Stella.. She was part of a rescue project sponsored by "Broward Cat Rescue", which is an incredible IG page that helps find homes to shelter cats.  We are so happy to have Stella here.. she is the sweetest kitty ever and makes our cat family so much better!  Here's her picture! :)


We spent some time at the beach since we couldn't let summer end without soaking in some sun by the ocean; the days were picture perfect so we couldn't let that one by! 


Here's a picture of Stella and our cat Abuelita, who surprisingly seems to have accepted her.  They were even grooming each other today, which was absolutely adorable! :) 


I took the girls to "Build-a-Bear", since they got a couple of gifts cards on their birthday and they really enjoyed making a MLP stuffed pet.  It was fun and all but I still think those things are completely overpriced...


And to finish off our summer we had a great weekend together. On Saturday we had a family backyard BBQ; it was fun to grill out in spite of the heat.  Yum! yum!


Finally today we attended Brock's 7th birthday party, which was a football themed bash that had all kinds of fun attractions; there were bumper carts, rock climbing, a DJ, balloon maker, face painter and much more... his parents even hired the UM mascot and cheerleaders to keep the crowd going.  It sure was fun to spend the afternoon at this fun party and the girls really enjoyed a nice time with their schools friends....
Here are some pictures of the party...


And with that, we say good bye to our 2014 summer break.  So many places were seen, memories made and time well spent.  I look forward to another wonderful school year and will forever cherish the great times that this summer brought...

To celebrate the first week of school, I will focus on special "Back to School" subjects and tips that can help moms have a smoother school season and easier transition into the routine.  Please be on the lookout for promotions and giveaways that will be great for this wonderful back to school season!

Happy Blogging! :)
