Summer Fun 2015

Summer has finally arrived at our house. Today is the last day of school and my kids are FINALLY all mine.

I’ve been killing myself on our kitchen remodel and so I’ve got nothing lately. No energy, no time and – thanks to the major remodel – no money. (Not really but it sure feels that way. Why do things always cost more than we plan on?)

Needless to say, I’m ready for a break – ready to put down my paintbrush and pick up a kickball.

I’ve spent the time I’ve sat nursing our baby girl lately surfing the Internet for new things to try this summer. I’ve posted some links in the past but I’ve added some new ones this year. (I hope we finally get around to making one of those water blobs.)

Here is a list of a few free or really cheap local events and some sites with homemade activities to try. I’m guessing we’ll have some major adventures trying to pull of some of these.

What are you going to do the next couple of months?
