We’ve made it!! We’ve made it through the last full week of our summer!

Summer started out strong, but mercy, I’ve lost a ton of steam the last few weeks.

The last week called for some fun adventures, though. And we managed to squeeze a few in!

Over the weekend, my husband took Elizabeth on a camping trip! It was originally supposed to be a backpacking trip with a bigger group of friends, but he ended up taking her to another camp ground where they didn’t have to backpack. But they had such a fun time!

I’ll admit, I shed a small tear on Saturday night when I saw Elizabeth’s empty room. It was the first time she wasn’t at home and I was… it was a weird feeling.

One morning this week we braved the hot, sticky weather to head to the Durham Life & Science Museum. *Side note, if you’re ever planning a visit to Durham with kids, this is a MUST see!

The kids had a fun time! And it was our first time there with both kids and without a stroller. It was so nice! As a result, both kids walked everywhere and were pooped when we were done. Win!

The Dinosaur Walk is my favorite spot!

It’s hard having a little brother sometimes…. And I just noticed William’s awful bruised legs… he’s always falling!

One of my other favorite spots in Durham is a hike on the Eno River. We live a quarter mile away from one of the trail heads, and I always enjoy walking the trails to see how the changing seasons affect it.

The kids do better on hikes some days, but this week it was a rough last chunk haha! The parking lot was in sight, through the trees, but I was holding both kids’ hands while they sobbed because they were tired.

But the hike started off well! The river was low enough that we could walk out to the center area to toss in rocks.

At one point on the trail, the trail crosses county lines. Elizabeth was REALLY concerned. She just thought we had walked too far and we’d never make it back to Durham. She was SO relieved when we crossed back into our county haha!

Have you officially transitioned to fall schedule? I’m so jazzed to get back into the regular groove next week!

  And now, it’s time to link up your posts! Can’t wait to cruise around and see what you all have been blogging about!
