Summer Fun Roundup

cool-sun-hiIn a little more than 24 hours I will get my kids back. School will be OVER!!! They will be all mine until August.

I love having them home. That said, I know we will need lots of things to keep us from driving each other insane.

So I asked the boys to help me make a list of things they wanted to do this summer. Number one from my oldest was: take a trip to New York. Number one from my second oldest was: take a trip to California. Nice.

After I dashed their dreams of having an awesome out-of-state vacation, we made a toned-down sensible list with local attractions.

Below you will find a list of the top 10 things we want to do this summer. Also, I’ve rounded up some pretty awesome blog posts from other bloggers on fun activities for kids. I know I’m going to take advantage of all of these creative ideas during the next several weeks. I’m too tired and overwhelmed to think of everything on my own. I love that people share their ideas – I hope they don’t mind me sharing their blogs here.

Let me know what you are going to do this summer. Maybe I’ll steal some of your ideas for our family. Hopefully this summer will be epic.

  1. Go fishing at the trout farm
  2. Go to the dollar/free movie at our local theatre
  3. Go to the dollar store and get some stuff
  4. Go visit grandma Helen (my grandma, my boys’ great-grandma – if you have ever met grandma Helen, you’d want to go visit her too)
  5. Go to our city’s splash pad
  6. Drive to a park near dad’s work and have lunch with him
  7. Go camping
  8. Go to the free movies in the park in our new town
  9. Go to Tracy Aviary
  10. Go to the really cool castle park by our new house
