#Summerdays2013 Week 1 + a WINNER!

The first week of summer has been great! Summer break is definitely a major benefit of being a teacher. One week off, and I already feel refreshed! Here are my Instagram shots from the week:

Day 1: Headed down to Orlando after my last day of school!

Day 2: Afternoon Starbucks run with miss Lynnea

Day 3: Celebrating Alana's 18th birthday and graduation!

Day 4: Heading out on the river for the afternoon- if only we had this in our back yard!

Day 5: First pool day with Andrea and Teagan! I could hardly handle that two-piece and grin. So sweet!

Day 6: Making Cheddar Biscuits with my sweet buddy, Noah :) Can't believe he'll be in 3rd grade next year! ...We took the 7UP Biscuits recipe and fancied them up! I'll post the recipe either this week or next- stay tuned!

Day 7: Lunch date and shopping with my mama!

Extra pics from the week:

We stayed with Nanna and Grandpa in Orlando. We always love getting to visit them!
