Summer 2011

I sat down yesterday and made a list of all the fun things we want to do this summer. I had wanted to print out some really cute paper, put it into a frame and write on the glass with marker, but black permanent ink on a pink index card will have to do. Here it is-

Summer 2011

Go swimming (check x20)

Go to IKEA (Ethan added that one)

Do crafts

Make smoothies

Go to a fun park (check already)

Ride a carousel (since there are 5 available!)

Have a water balloon fight

See a $1 movie (used to be free- now they are $1)

Go to the National Zoo

Visit the Native American Museum

Chuck E Cheese (this is for Jonah who LOVES the place)

Go fishing

Go for a train ride (Cabin John)

Go for a walk (check)

Go to the library (weekly)

Go bowling (Ethan's request)

Have play dates (Elizabeth's request)

Visit New York (again!)

Go boating (Black Hills)

Make smores (with our inside smore kit)

Make Homemade Ice cream

I'm sure we'll find more to do than this list, but it gives us some good ideas! The kids have been getting used to being around each other all day and so am I.We're working out a system that works for us. Phew. Who knew having so much fun was so much hard work?

This is my blog. My name is Megan Abbott.

Fun! I like the idea of making a list (I might just have to do it too!) time is going by so fast, a list might help!

I love it when you do the things that I had wanted to do and hadn't gotten around to. Now I have a little extra motivation to get my summer fun list going. Sounds like it will be a fun summer at your house.
