My Month by Numbers | August 2016

Happy Labor Day!  Can you believe Summer is unofficially over??? I know the first day of Fall isn't for a few more weeks, but I think it's safe to say summer has ended!  Once again, I'm linking up with Shoes to Shiraz where she prompts us to share a monthly recap in numbers... you can read my past posts here.  I love recapping our months and am really enjoying this format so far!  Here is my August in numbers...

Number of...

Nights in a hotel: 3

This month we spent a weekend in Rhode Island with family and a weekend in Williamsport visiting friends.  Thankfully Noah loves staying in hotels and is already asking to go to one again!

SPF used: 30 all the way to 100

I have a whole bag full of sunscreen, from spray (for the body) to lotion (for the face) with a range of SPF!

Days spent at the pool: 11 (plus 4 more at the hotel)

Chris joked when we got the August membership that I needed to take Noah 3 times a week to make it financially make sense (versus going as a guest with friends).  We spent the majority of our days at the pool, so I think we succeeded!

Years married: 6

Last weekend, Chris and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary by going out to dinner.  You can read all about it here.

Meals eaten out: 15

With all of our weekends away and grabbing dinner when at the pool, we ate out a lot!  I hope to cook a lot more this month!

Miles driven: 1,395

While we do plenty of local stuff, we logged quite a few miles on the weekends and by taking a few day trips to the beach.  Good thing Noah doesn't mind the car!

Characters seen: 4

The photos Noah took with the mascots at the Little League World Series crack me up!!!

Pins collected: 6

Besides meeting popcorn and french fries, Noah also collected a bunch of pins at the Little League World Series.  We even ordered him a pin display case so he can keep them all in one spot :)

Photos taken: 1,193

Yup, I take A LOT of photos!  And this number is after I delete the bad ones from my DSLR and iPhone!

Days til school starts: 2!!!

I know most kids have already been in school for weeks, but Noah has his first day on Wednesday... we are so excited!!! 

What are some of your "numbers" for August???

  1. I can't wait to see how school goes for Noah this year. I have some "wish list" ideas for what I want C to learn.

  2. No, no, no, no! Summer isn't over until Beth goes on vacation. I am pretty sure that has to be a rule :P. But seriously having a vacation planned LATE in the summer has made it seems so much longer this year.

  3. We just went to a minor league game and Simon met all the mascots like Noah did! Happy almost school!

  4. The French fry made me laugh our loud. Nice!

  5. aw, I love the hand-written note :) Thanks for linking up!

  6. I have to say that I am surprised that you guys were only at the pool 11 days out of the month! It seems like you guys visited at least once a day. 1,395 miles of adventuring! I love the mascot pictures. I hope Noah has the best first day back!!

  7. What a fun month! You sure packed a ton of good things into your days. Those mascot photos were too cute :)

  8. Haha, those food mascots are so funny, cute pictures! Happy anniversary!
