You may have blocked this from your mind, but in less than a month, the kiddos are going to be on summer vacation! Yep...Our precious little cherubs are going to be around a lot more and it's up to us to keep them entertained. While some of us may have help in the form of babysitters, nannies or daycare, it's still our jobs as mamas to make summer as fun as possible for our wee ones!
For my family, that means getting out of the house a LOT. I like to make it a point to explore our city during the summer. We frequent the zoo, aquarium, museums, parks, beaches...I could go on and on. That's not to say that we don't have our fair share of fun at home. We plan picnics. We play in the water. We fly kites. I remember summertime being so magical for me when I was little and I want my kids to have the same kind of memories. I bet you feel the same way about making your kids' summer special too right?

First up are dresses. I rounded up some sweet sundresses for you a couple weeks ago and I've added a few more here for your shopping pleasure. Try mixing in a maxi or two in with your girl's sundresses. And don't be afraid to work in some rompers. You won't have to worry about bloomers with your toddler and little girls can run and climb with ease while wearing them. For the girly girl, a few skirts are a good idea. They can be mixed and matched with different tees and tanks to get more bang for your buck.
