The Summer Vacation Marathon

The last school bell of the year rings in June and so begins the marathon that is summer vacation. Anxious to have the ultimate summer vacation, our kids are full of energy and ready to get this summer started! My only fear is that I won’t be able to keep up with them! Our summer vacation is in full swing and we still have a month to go!


Jake and Mia can’t stop talking about their 3 week trip to Chicago, Shelby had the most amazing afternoon swimming with dolphins and Abby Gene has been over the moon excited to have everyone home to play with her!

I’ve been most excited about our days not being as structured as they typically are during the school year.

I’ve also managed to sneak in a few of my guilty vacation pleasures like sleeping in late, naps and relaxing by the pool…my idea of vacation is definitely different than my kids’ idea of a vacation (ha!).


Every marathon athlete knows how important it is to train and take care of your body for the big day, or in our case, the next few months that is vacations, camps and playdates. As the Mom, I’m constantly taking care of the kids, but sometimes during the summer months, we’re so busy that sometimes, I’m the one who comes last.

One thing that I’ve always kept constant is our simple (and leisurely) morning routine. A healthy homemade breakfast first, and then we hit the park, the pool or anything outside.

Our marathon summer has been one for the record books! We’ve been to a few theme parks, on a plane to Chicago, on a train to Michigan and we’ve traveled over 1,000 miles along the Florida highways to the beaches and state parks, making memories all along the way.
