Nestle Family’s Best Summer Ever Wrap Up {Giveaway}

Did I blink?  Is Summer really over?  Last week, my girls started back to school which officially wraps up the Summer fun for my family.  We are already knee deep in homework, after school activities and daily routines.  Looking back, we had a tremendous Summer!  We took two incredible vacations and spent lots of quality time together as a family.

Last month, Nestle Family alongside seven bloggers (including myself) challenged you to have to Best.Summer.Ever!  Did you rise to the occasion?  We came up with some great activities for you to share with your family and friends to ensure that you created memories to cherish for a lifetime.  Hopefully you found them helpful and have been entering the giveaways to add to the fun!  If not, you have one more week to join the party! While Summer is over for my family, I know some of you are not quite back to the grind.  Why not enjoy making Summertime Smores, taking a weekend Staycation or birdwatching in your own neighborhood?

The ninth (and final) week of the Nestle Family Best Summer Ever Challenge brings some fantastic prizes inlcuding a 30-day supply of OVALTINE®, 12 pack of NESTLE®JUICY JUICE®, Reading collection from RIF, Amazon Kindle, and an Amazon Gift certificate (ARV $350).  The contest ends August 29, 2011 at 11:59 pm PST.

And the best news?  You can win right here on Experimental Mommy, too!

    Honestly, I think this was the most wonderful summer that we’ve had. We went to South Carolina for the first time for a few weeks. My Dad moved there a number of months ago and the whole family went for two weeks, then my kids and I stayed on for a couple more weeks. We returned in time to go on another small vacation to the Jersey Shore. My oldest son started dating for the first time and since he’s only 14, I’ve been driving them to “dates” along with my youngest son. I don’t think I’ve ever been so busy, we’ve seen a few movies, been bowling, been playing minature golf, have gone to local baseball games and gone swimming every nice day. It’s really been a wonderful summer and I’m sorry to see the kids head back to school.
    Thanks so much.

  5. This summer was pretty awesome! My daughter was a toddler this year so we got to do a lot more than we did last year. I really enjoyed taking her to carnivals and the beach. We had a ton of fun this summer and I bet next year will be even better.

    we went to TN for a family reunion and gettysburg.

  12. This was a pretty tame summer- I did hospital/Mexico trip/hospital so most of the rest of our plans flew out the window and we stayed local. Hopefully when we go to Hawaii I will be feeling better.

  23. Crystal F says:

    We had one of our worst summers ever. I broke my ankle at our local fireworks display so we got to spend the summer at home. My girls got to spend it taking care of me and not out doing lots of fun things like I had planned. We did take my daughter and her friends to the amusement park for her birthday. They all had a blast so that’s one bright spot for the summer. Thanks for the giveaway!

  52. yes. This has been the best summer ever. My first child just turned 1 and he is a blast. This summer has been packed with things for me and my little family to do. This is the first summer where I have had fun things going on every weekend. Gotta show off my little dude of course. 🙂

  53. The hubby’s hours got cut because of cutbacks and I’m a teacher so I don’t get paid in the summer, so all our “adventure” plans got put on hold. We are trying to have fun around the house (hard to do) and have taken a few trips to my parents house on the lake in Conn. The kids just love that, so it hasn’t been too bad. Hopefully next year we can do more.

  75. I’m not sure I’d call this the best summer ever (we had a few family crises and didn’t get to take much time of work as a result), but all in all it’s been pretty good. We managed to squeeze in a few family road trips to Michigan and Lake Erie, and we had a lot of fun with family and friends staying close to home, swimming, biking, and camping. Thanks!

    Not much vacationing this year. I have a daughter starting her Senior year of high school and a son starting his 4th year of medical school. Next summer, when each of them graduate, we will have a huge family reunion. My son is going to school in Galveston, Texas, so I’m planning on having the wing ding on the beach.

    I haven’t had the best summer ever yet. I’m waiting to find miss right first then we’ll make it the best summer

  87. Not ever but definitely a top 10 🙂 I was off from work for 7 weeks (medical leave, but woohoo no work!!), we went to the beach for a week, and I’ve lost over 50# since summer started, so yeah it’s been pretty good 🙂

  88. Christina says:

    Probably not the best summer ever since our plans had to drastically change due to some medical issues for my daughter, but we had a pretty great summer. A few day trips to the river and springs, 2 weekend camping trips and lots of laid back, fun days in the sun playing games and just hanging out. Still managed to have wonderful and fun times with my kids (and I am so sad they are off to school again!).

They came home for about a week which was fantastic. My husband and I have been struggling financially, so the real emotional breaks I got this summer was when my brother and sisters came to visit.

  162. We have had a wonder time going to the beach several times this summer.

  163. This was an average summer for us. We took day trips when it wasn’t so blasted hot outside! Most of the time was spent going to the local pool to try and keep cool. Now that the weather is cooler, we will be able to engage in more outdoor activities. And we have a large family picnic coming up that everyone is looking forward to. Thanks.

    This summer has been terrible – either it was too too too hot or way too rainy !!! Weather did not cooperate at all for any of our usual day trips / hikes or camping !!!

  211. There hasn’t been one “Best Summer Ever” but we have had some great moments: Jumping into waves in Maine; “painting” pictures on the sidewalk with water; keeping a balloon off the ground.

    You can’t force the moments you remember. You can only enjoy them as they happen!

  212. Jen Harriman says:

    The best part of our summer was our weekend away for the 4th. We rented a cabin in my favorite town in Maine, on a lake. Kids swam all day, we went fishing & looking for moose. The town had a huge celebration with a parade & childrens games. Fireworks at night. My last baby’s first 4th & it was amazing!

  221. This summer was really bittersweet because it was our son’s last summer at home before starting college – 5 hours from home! No big adventures, but lots of time spent together.

  308. When I was a kid we went to Cedar Point and Conneaut Lake plus camping a few times, and that to me, was the best summer ever!
