VlogTalk: A Summer of Fun

YouTube Preview Image

P.S. That last slide is supposed to say @mytimeasmom not @twitter.com. I’m still learning iMovie and I made this at midnight. Whatever.

I think this video will further prove that my kids had a no bummer summer.

Now, if only I can get someone to watch my youngest (for free) starting next week when my oldest goes back to school so I can get caught up on things… #WishfulThinking


Prompt: Highlights of your summer.

Join us at the VlogTalk site to linkup your vlog and watch the rest of the videos.

Don’t forget the #VlogTalk Twitter chat is August 23rd 6-7pm PST.

    That looks like a great summer! I would like to get on the list to learn wakeboarding next summer. No, scratch that, all the weird lake creatures that could get me. I’ll just watch from the boat.

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      I’m generally on the boat watching too. I like warm water and the snow we get doesn’t really create that.

  5. W.C. Camp says:

    Looks like a lot of fun to me – Wakeboard thing is new to me but also looks pretty neat. Honestly though now I am going to have nightmares about that GIANT PENGUIN!! W.C.C.

    Nice! Looks totally fun. And that last pic of all 4 of you is great.

    I wanted to do this one and then I realized I didn’t take any photos or video this summer. Must fix that.

    If your kids are anything like mine I bet they asked “What’s next mom?” even after all these fun adventures!

    • Jessica D Torres says:

      They were pretty good about not asking that but I did hear I’m bored and I’m hungry quite a few times.

    You did a great job with the iMovie. I like how you started it with the video and ended with the pictures. If you want to know anything about iMovies, give me a hollar, because I’ve done quiet a few of them, I love the program! Those transitions of the ripple effect, you can slow those down too if you want. :)

    I will happily watch your youngest for free if you can somehow coordinate my husband getting a new, very very well paying job. Like, his salary and mine combined.

    Thank you.

      The rodeo was fun but my oldest is such an animal lover that seeing the cowboys rope the cows and stuff was heartbreaking for her.

  26. Oh my gravy you are all so cute I want you to adopt me so I can be a part of your family.

    Except for the part where I’m a lot older than you.

    So I guess I could be the old adopted aunt?
