Spending time with Jack. Jack still went to daycare but we did get to spend more time together. I would take him late and pick him up early. I'd also pick up my nephew from daycare. Many afternoons we would go straight to Sonic to indulge in chocolate milkshakes or ice cream cones. Jack, my mom, and I went and saw The Secret Life of Pets and Jack and I spent numerous days at the pool.
Spending time at the pool alone. The days I worked I normally didn't take Jack with me. The pool we belong to operates on volunteers so I happily worked several days this summer. I knew I couldn't properly watch him while working so I often signed up to work when I knew Jack would be in daycare. After I do my duties that had to be done I would get to lay back and relax. I would spend some time in the pool and the other times sitting inside and reading. It was nice just to have that time to myself.
Spending time with friends. This summer has been the most time I've spent with friends since before Jack. My friend Brooke and I would meet up for lunch margaritas, we took a girls overnight trip to Riverfest, another trip to the I Love the 90s concert, I went and stayed overnight at my besties house, and a few times I went out with friends at night. We still have the beach trip coming up in September!
Reading and watching tv. I binge watched the whole Parks and Recreation series, watched countless reruns of 90210, read numerous books, and enjoyed my favorite summer show Big Brother. I very much LOVED Parks and Rec and even cried when I finished the last episode. My favorite book this summer was The House We Grew Up In. It is also the last book I read, which usually is my favorite.
What has been your favorite part this summer?
