Summer is slowly winding down, and yet again, I am left thinking where in the world did summer go?! It always seems to fly by, though the days seem so long. Don’t get me wrong, I love the beautiful, warm weather. But, it can be down right exhausting! I don’t know what it is, but every day the sun is out, I feel like I need to the girls outside to get enjoy it… It’s like I can’t take a break from it all without feeling guilty.. Like I’m a bad mom if we — heaven forbid — don’t go outside for one day. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Well, hang in there my fellow pumpkin spice lovers, Fall is coming. But, to help you power through the remaining days of summer, here are a few of the {cheap} summer favorites I use to keep the girls occupied + maintain my sanity as we muddle through the southern Indiana heat. Best part — they’re all UNDER $25!
