Don't Let The Summer Slip Away, End It With a Bang!

Monday, September 8, 2014


Every year when summer comes rolling in it seems that we only have a very limited time to enjoy it. In June everyone is thinking about July 4th and in Utah we also celebrate July 24th as well. And yet somehow it doesn't quite feel like summer has started yet. Then August come and we are bombarded with back to school ads that never seem to end and are constantly mocking "your summer is over and now you will pay!" (literally). It's hard to enjoy those last few weeks of summer fun when we are consumed by the huge list of back to school items we "have to buy".

During all the shopping the song: My Sweet Summer just keeps playing over and over in my head only rubbing it in, and just when you think you can relax and really soak in at least a couple hours of summer it happens, it hits you in the face... like a big giant pumpkin, PUMPKIN MANIA! You start to see all your friends on Twitter and Instagram with their Pumpkin Lattes and frappuccinos; like it's a status symbol for all stay at home moms. So I'm here to say... ENOUGH! Let's slow this down! Are we celebrating Halloween this month? Did Thanksgiving move to September? I didn't think so. I don't know about you, but I am going to milk it for all it's worth. Summer doesn't officially end until later this month, and when it does end I am sending it off with a bang! I will be officially ending summer at the Summer Ends Music Festival, a 3 day event along the Tempe Beach Waterfront! That's right what better way to end summer than with some amazing music and the warm backdrop of Tempe AZ.

Fall can wait just a little longer because it's still time for some summer fun with some amazing artists!

Epic line up, am I right?

It doesn't get much better than that! I have already seen American Authors and Fitz & The Tantrums this summer at two other concerts and they were amazing! I can't wait to see them perform again! This is the last music festival of the summer that you will get such amazing bands and an awesome mix of different sounds. A music festival isn't just a big concert, it's an experience; one that you will have memories of forever. Not only will you experience some great bands but Summer Ends Music Festival has even more to offer with arts, crafts, sponsors booths and more!

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
