we gotz planz.

It appears that everyone is making a summer list of things to do! 

I always hear parents complain that they are SO ready for their kids to get back in school.  I was determined to never be that Mom...so I decided whether big or small, we were going to make plans every day for the summer.

Of course our first week of summer was getting ready for our big trip, the second week we were on said big trip, and this past week I was completely successful in making plans every day.  Now I just have to keep it up for another 9 or so weeks.
One day was filled with board games, one day we did the slip n' slide, one day we went to a cool beach we found not to far from our house, one day we went to the movies, one day we made snail mail for the people we love, and that is just the tip of the iceberg. 
It has been so fun.  We have a list of other things to fill our days in the upcoming weeks...

library visits
another day at that beach
pool party at our pad
we have at least 6 movies we need to see in the theater
nature walk to some place we haven't been
a park we have never been to
lots o' picnics
a car wash day
lemonade stand
swimming lessons {more to come on this very soon}
I think by the time school starts again I will be sad that we don't get to spend all day together...darn girl thinks she has to go to the 1st grade!

In August, Thanksgiving Point has 2 buck Tuesdays. Where each Tues. it's only $2 to get into either the Dino Museum, Farm or Childrens Garden.

I need to take my kids to that beach, they would have so much fun!

I love her little stance she's got going on. She loves the camera, doesn't she? She's a doll! And cherish the moments now. I swear just yesterday Hailey was starting first grade and now she's going into fifth grade and that scares the bejeebus out of me.

Don't forget a trip to the dinosaur museum to meet your favorite blogger you've never met live in person!

Where is that beach?? My kids would love that! I love your idea of having every day filled with something fun for Summer! And I loved your post about not blogging because it wasn't convenient. It truly shows that you are a GREAT MOMMY and that your kiddos are priority. I love your posts!

My kids are so much happier (and me too!) when we all stay busy during the summer. You've got such a great list! Man your kids are lucky to have such a cool mom!!
