Lake Life and Naartjie Kids clothing

This summer we have been very busy checking off things on our summer fun list. One of the things the kids enjoy doing the most is visiting their grandma’s condo at  Lake Wawasee. It has been fun seeing my kids enjoying the lake that I grew up going to and creating similar memories. We have had our family condo their since I was 5 years old (which is the age of Dylan). They love boating, swimming at the pool and in the lake, creating new friendships, fishing and just enjoying good old lake life. On this trip, it was hard to get them to leave! They were both crying. I guess that means they had a great week.


Naartjie kids are a favorite of mine because they are stylish, comfortable and fun clothing that my kids love to wear. Dylan is at the age that he wants to wear “comfy” clothing and it is hard to get him into something other than basketball shorts. Naartjie kids makes both of us happy because the clothes are not too serious and he feels comfortable in what he is wearing. A win for both mom and son! I personally love the details of the clothing especially the applique’s. Right now if you visit Naartjie kids they are having an amazing sale and free shipping when you spend $100.
