Heading Back to School with Gymboree

Friday, July 28, 2017

I am a summer girl, it's true. I love warm weather, sandy beach days, backyard barbecues and long summer nights. I'm never anxious for back to school season, but I will admit there is a nostalgic appeal to the smell of freshly sharpened pencils, dewy fall mornings and empty notebook pages full of possibility.

School supply lists are out, tax free shopping days are coming and like it or not, another school year is on the way. Might as well be prepared, right? I've been trying to plan ahead for the new year and get my ducks in a tidy row so we can hit the ground running. That means planning out schedules, stocking up on supplies, and shopping to outfit my kiddos for the year ahead.

I love shopping at Gymboree for kids' clothes because they make it so easy to coordinate great looks for any activity on our schedule. I also love that their clothes are soft, durable and oh so kid-friendly! They wash and wear well so that I don't ever have to worry about worn out knees, faded colors or ironing boards.

We were fortunate to have Gymboree sponsor this post so that we could preview some of their awesome new outfits for back to school 2017! We had fun browsing the new lines and my kiddos love picking out their favorites to model.

Little Miss has big #kidgoals for 2nd grade this year. She wants to start reading a book series and dig deep into story characters like her big brothers and sister do. She also wants to cheerlead during basketball season and try out some art classes too.  The leggings, colorful tee and sparkly sweater she picked out at Gymboree will take her from the library, to the playground, to art class and beyond in style. They are perfect for the first day of school! Her favorite part of the Back to School collection was the accessories - she chose sparkly star barrettes and sparkly slip on shoes to match.

Mr. Man has some #kidgoals of his own for 5th grade. He plans to rock the basketball court again this year, explore robotics and coding too. He loved the t-shirts in Gymboree's collection and picked out this outfit for his new adventures.

 What are your #kidgoals for this year? Check out Gymboree for fun and fabulous looks for that will make their first day of school a smash hit!

Happy weekend all! This was a big week for us. We finally met my new nephew and he is absolutely perfect. We are all SO in love and bursting with happiness for my sister and her family. I can't wait to have a full photo session and more snuggles with this handsome guy!
Hubs also got tickets to the ball game this week and we took the kids for a night of family fun. It ended up being the perfect evening for some outdoor entertainment. We all had a fantastic time.

I also worked a ton.

What's new with you? Please link up your posts and have an awesome weekend!

Hey friends! Another week down and July continues to be crazy busy for us. And also crazy hot. I'm fortunate that most of my sessions are on the beach, because the humidity is awful out.

I have been so busy with work that I have neglected to take many personal photos lately.  I hope your week was more exciting than mine. What have you been up to?

All iPhone this week.

Happy Friday friends! I hope you've had an awesome week.
I know I totally bombed last week and I sincerely apologize. This month has been insanely busy with work, weddings, family birthdays,  school, driving all over the place and on and on. I had every intention of getting a post up, but I just completely failed. By the time I had any time to get to it, it was already Monday. Fail. 

Anyway, I do have some images to share from the past two weeks to catch up, and I will do my very best not to let you down again!

Someone pretty cute had a birthday party:

And I actually made it to the beach for some fun, rather than work:

Obligatory panos:
