Happy Friday!!! It is now officially summer and it is actually starting to feel like it here in Boulder. We have had a very cool wet June, I love how green it is and how much snow the mountains have been getting but we are ready for some summer weather now.
It’s shorts, t-shirts and snacks in the backyard as often as possible.
I celebration of the official start of summer I though we would talk about summer of our summer favorites.
One of my favorite things to give my kids are popsicles in the backyard (WAY to messy to have in the house). We really like the Outshine fruit bars. My favorites are the lime ones, almost like having a margarita. Cannon and Emmy approve of all of the flavors.
Also in the summer I find that I really need to up my electrolyte intake. With running more miles the heat and running around with the kids in the sun I really feel like I need it.
My go to for years is has been Nuun hydration tabs. It’s so convenient to carry with me and just drop one in a bottle of water. My favorites are Strawberry Lemonade and Cherry Limeade with caffeine.
The Mother Runner on Instagram always has great posts but I really loved this one. I love my kids to be dirty and wild haired it makes my heart feel full when they explore and run and hunt bugs.
This post also made me like they got me:
Lastly we are LOVING our summer shoes:
Cannon has been wearing Natives since he was one and now Emmy is loving hers! These shoes are light, durable and easy to get on and off. The style we like are the Jefferson but there are plenty of styles to choose from. They have held up well to Cannon being really rough on them and now Emmy is wearing his hand-me-downs. We didn’t have a pair of size 5s for Cannon when he was one (it was winter when he was wearing size 5s) so I bought them both the next size up. I know it’s terribly lame to buy them matching shoes but I love it so much and one day soon they will have strong opinions and I probably won’t be able to anymore.
What are some of your summer favorites?
