While you can’t tell from the unseasonably cool weather, Summer is in full swing at the Mahoney house.  Last summer seemed to be over before it even started, and it seemed as if we had done nothing except take a fun vacation.  So, I’ve made a little “mama pledge” to enjoy our free days.  Things are a tad different this year with Reid home and outings require a little more patience and cooperation from his 3 older siblings and myself.  However, I am determined to make special memories with my kiddos this summer.  Thankfully, the St. Louis area has tons of free or almost free things for families.

036wWe’ve already checked 3 things off of our Summer Fun List, and next week will hopefully bring more checkmarks.  This week, we made it to Powder Valley and the World Bird Sanctuary, and Papa took the 3 older kids fishing.









We have 10 more weeks of summer to make memories!
