Summer Fun

We've been busy every weekend squeezing in as much Summer fun as we can!  This past week we took a small trip with both my husband and I's immediate families to rent a house in Concan, TX to float the river.  We had a wonderful time floating and swimming in the Frio River and playing volleyball and washers and lots of card and board games.  We are very fortunate that our families enjoy each other's company so much as then we can spend time with both of our families all at once!  I actually hardly took any pictures...I guess I was in complete relaxation mode, which meant a break from the camera too.  I did get a couple of snapshots of some funny or sweet moments, and I did get one group pic with my family before we left for the weekend, but that was it! and I haven't even uploaded them to my computer yet.  Of course now I wish we would've been taking more pictures. 

Here's what it looks like floating the Frio River if you've never been:

Gus has also been enjoying Summer.  We got him a pool to help him stay cool in this TX heat.  He wasn't quite sure what to think about it.  Jeff told him to sit and he started to, but as soon as his booty hit that cold water, he jumped right back up! hah 

I also picked up a couple of new collars that are bright and colorful - perfect for Summer! I got them from Target from the Polka Dog Bakery collection along with some dog treats as well.  You can see him sportin' his new neon collar in the pics below!

Wishing you all a great Summer weekend!


  1. Looks like a fantastic spot to relax. Kylee got a new summer color too. And, her favorite thing to do is attack the sprinkler! Headed your way on Sunday!

  2. Oh I agree looks like such a great place to relax and your dog is so adorable!!

  3. Summer fun at it's finest. Looks and sounds like a great place.

  4. Ooh, I love the Frio! So fun! And those dog collars are adorable.

  5. Your dog is so cute Tara and I've never floated down that river but it looks beautiful and not too rough so I'd love to visit there one day. Some rivers scare me but that looks so relaxing. Great pics!

    Also, the neutral wedges in my post are a brand called Franco Sarto. I found them a couple months ago at TJMaxx. Hope that helps :) Have a great weekend!


  6. We literally have a river in our backyard {well almost!} and I've never floated it yet! It's definitely on my summer bucket of these days!!

  7. Oh my gosh I love the collars! So cute! I need to get our dog a little pool asap!

  8. Gus is so stinking cute!! Love your photos!
