Another Summer Memory

I'm still missing summer, can you tell?  Don't get me wrong, I love my teaching job, and I have a great new batch of 4th graders!  It's going to be a fantastic school year with this group!  In summer, though, I have more time to focus on family, and have little adventures!!

 Shamu's show is always a highlight!
They are so darn cute!!
Penguin love!
Seeing the penguins so up close was awesome!  Violet has loved penguins since she was a little baby!
The sea lions were crazy when you buy the fish to feed them!  And birds swooped down to try and steal it right out of the kids' hands!!!

This guy below was mad-dogging me!  Probably because I've eaten so many of his cousins!  It's hard to tell on camera, but he was HUGE!!!!
We had a great time, I would recommend Sea World to families any time!

Get to know me, Sunday Social

It has been so hectic around here, adjusting both daughter and I to being back in school!  Just trying to catch up on it all is a challenge!  Summer was really a whole different pace! 

Joining in on some Sunday Social action :-)

A few questions to get to know me:

1. What was your favorite trip/vacation/activity this summer?
We didn't go far this summer, but we did a fun, quick trip for a few days to San Diego and enjoyed Sea World!
 Feeding VERY hungry Sea Lions, bark, bark barrrrrrrrk!!!
Gotta love Shaumu and his stunts :-)
2. What was your favorite outfit/look of the summer/clothing item?
Probably my maxi dresses, which are breezy for hot days, and my little bicycle upcycle.
3. What is one thing you wish you had gotten to do this summer?
I wanted to do more crafting with my daughter Violet and get into scrapbooking with her.  We did some crafts and cooking, but time somehow got away from us and her scrapbook is still empty :-(.
4. What was your favorite song of the summer?
"Settle Down" by No Doubt :-)
5. What was your favorite movie/TV show of the summer?
We enjoyed going to see Brave as a family, and also enjoyed awesome Shave Ice afterward :-)
*Big Sigh*  I miss summer already!!!  How about you?
