Make this a Forever Summer!

Big thank you to The Motherhood and Oshkosh B’gosh for sending me a #ForeverSummer package so that we could share our summer fun with you!

It’s summer time – finally. It feels like spring took forever to get here, and even once it arrived, it was so cold and dreary. But then one day, like a switch had flipped – the sunshine arrived! We opened the pool a few weeks earlier than usual, the kids just got out of school {my nephews spend the summer break with me} – and we’re ready for fun.

Forever Summer - Kids Fashion - #ForeverSummer

We’d hoped for a trip to the beach this summer, somewhere on the Oregon Coast. But, it’s not going to work out for us. But just because there’s no beach doesn’t mean there’s no fun! We’ve got a big in ground pool, sprinklers, water balloons – and the Mister even helped me build a SUPER fun Kiddie Car Wash out of PVC pipe. It’s like a big ride-through sprinkler for the kids, and they love it. {Directions coming soon, but you can see it in the video below – so keep reading :)}

Oshkosh Kid's Summer Fashions

So – since most of our summer fun is spent outdoors and around the water, I was SUPER excited to stock up on summer swimwear for Abby. We headed out for a daytrip about an hour and a half away, to visit Oshkosh in North Bend, Washington. And seriously – how darn cute is this stuff? I mean, I want someone to make this whole outfit in MY size! So fun. Watch the video below to see it in action – her funny dance moves at the beginning are my favorite part!

Forever Summer is a new campaign from Oshkosh B’gosh, that’s all about celebrating all of the little moments that make summer special. We created this video using a GoPro – it mounts right onto your chest or a helmet, so that we could capture what summer fun looks like from Abby’s point of view. If you’ve never tried one, I can’t recommend it enough. It’s so much fun to see the world from your little one’s point of view <3
