we’ve been enjoying slowly chiseling away at our family’s summer bucket list! and in the process, i’ve been putting together little 60 second videos from some of our excursions from all of our iphone clips from the outing. my kids LOVE looking back at all of the videos our family has made over the years and it’s been good motivation to keep it up as they ask to watch them several times during the week. i said this over on instagram a while ago, but i know sometimes we get into the habit of only making videos on special occasions like holidays or birthdays or a special time of travel. but there is something to be said about those special days of just hanging out with family, and not doing much at all but being together. these are the moments where some of the best memories are created and i am so thankful that we can preserve them rather easily these days if we want to.
for those interested in creating similar videos, i am sure there are apps now that make it easy to do on your phone. i haven’t found any i love just yet, although i have only downloaded a few and probably didn’t spend enough time really learning to navigate them. i always just go back to using final cut pro on my computer since it’s the one i know my way around quickest as we’ve been using it for years. if you know of apps you love for editing or creating video content on your phones, please share with everyone in the comments!
i hope everyone is enjoying these last few weeks of summer. we have one month left before school picks back up for our kiddos. it has seriously flown by! our family is saying good-bye to these last couple of weeks of summer with some travel plans starting next week and i cannot wait to get beatrice and madalena’s tiny toes into some warm beach sand for the very first time! although let’s be real, i’m mostly just excited to plant my own toes in some warm beach sand. i have been dreaming of a nice sunny warm beach since the days where i felt 57 weeks pregnant a few months ago so it’s been a long time coming. ;)
