Daily Summer Routine with Toddlers

Summer is the absolute best...am I right? But with kids running around aimlessly under foot it can get a little overwhelming, slightly monotonous, and totally out of control. In the (almost) six years of being a mommy I've figured out that this fam (okay...maybe it's just me?) thrives on routine. But when I thrive, I think my kids do too.

There tends to be less complaining, less fighting, less begging for food, and just a general happiness. I dig it. So here is a little run-down of what a normal summer day in home looks like.
