In Only 3 Summer Weeks

September 27, 2012

To say that we had a packed summer would be an understatement.

We spent one week in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. The next week in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Upon arriving home we went to the Jersey Shore the very next day for my nephew and godson’s 5thBirthday Party, followed by our one year anniversary the very next day, and July 4th two days later – all with two dogs and a baby… and that was just the first 3 weeks! That should have been a clue as to how the rest of our summer would unfold.

Being that we are living in another country, our 6 weeks that we had back home for the summer were jam packed full of events, trips, family visits, people to see, places to go, obligatory must-dos, and self-indulgent want-to-do’s.

And with that comes loooooots of pictures. Lots of pictures. Looking back at only these first 3 weeks, reminds me of just how much we did in only a few weeks time. No wonder we were even more exhausted after vacation then when we left.

Posting these pictures would be too long and my mom and Husband’s parents would be the only ones who would want to look through each and everyone of them. But, when they agreed to our move here one of the prerequisites would be that we send lots of pictures home.

Pragmatics sometimes get the best of us and between the end of the school year, moving apartments, summer vacation, and baby raising, I fell a bit short on both the picture taking and the picture posting.

Here are pictures to the first part of our summer. (June 15-July 4)
