Summer Moments to Savor

This post is sponsored by Tradewinds and Mom It Forward. All opinions are my own.

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to end. Pretty soon there will be no more sleeping in, laid back schedules, and endless fun. It will be back to reality before we know it when school starts but we will remember those summer memories forever. This summer ended up being busier than I imagined and we traveled more than ever. I have to say that this was the best summer by far and there is still a bit of time left for more adventures. Here is a recap of our summer journey!

First up on the journey was a trip to California where we headed to Disneyland and California Adventure. The weather could not have been better as the first day we were there was hot, but the rest of the trip was cool and bearable.

And since I cannot get enough of Disney, two weeks later we flew out to Orlando, FL and headed to Animal Kingdom to check the new Pandora – The World of Avatar. This was beyond amazing and I highly recommend checking it out if you get a chance to.

Next up was a trip to Kings Island which is an amusement park nearby. Can you tell by now that we are thrill seekers?

We also took plenty of trips to the zoo, movies, hiking trails, library and the pool.

You better believe that we took along Tradewinds Tea on all of our adventures because it’s a family favorite and something we can’t live without. Of course, they have other flavors to choose from such as unsweet, sweet, raspberry, hint of lemon, and green tea with honey but we love our sweet tea.

Make sure to take along Tradewinds Tea in either 18.5 oz bottles or gallon sizes on your next adventure with the family by picking it up at major retailers nationwide including Kroger, Walmart, Target and Amazon. Learn more about Tradewinds Tea here.

    Sounds like you had a wonderful summer! We had a pretty good summer selves. We did a good amount of traveling either within the state or out of state. This tea definitely looks like a great tea to try.

    Tradewinds is definitely one of my favorite beverages to enjoy year-round because tea is the Southern drink of choice. – yolonda

    I’m so glad you were able to have so much fun with your family this summer. That’s what it’s all about! Our family had a pretty amazing summer too. Hopefully now we can all hit the ground running for the new school year.

    I have never had the pleasure to go to any Disney park. This looks so fun and scenic for families.

    It sounds like you had a great summer adventure going to all of these places. We don’t carry this brand of tea here but I like the variety of flavours it comes in.

    I love a good iced tea. We haven’t been to Animal Kingdom in a while. We will have to remedy that next time we go to Florida.

    I avoid tea drinks because they are too sweet for me, but I see they have unsweetened tea. I will look for this next time.

    We had so many fun adventures this summer, like you did. Not ready to slow down though. Need to fuel our fun with Tradewinds Tea.

    I have always considered visiting California! In fact, I think it would be a great way to visit and relax with the kids. I would LOVE to take them to Disney

    It sounds like you had a ton of fun on your trip. We didn’t go anywhere this year. However, we spent quite a bit of time at the swimming pool.

    Tradewinds tea sounds delicious. I’m sad about summer being over, but tea sure does remind me of summer afternoons.
