Where I Want to Take My Kids This Summer

Many of us parents believe that by booking up the first 6 weeks of summer with camps and travel, we’ll be all set.

Not. The case.

August shows up with a smile on its sunny face and a “So, whatcha gonna do with them this ENTIRE MONTH?”

I, for one, am not going to just sit around the house shouting “NO!” at the various loud/destructive/dangerous things my offspring do to pass the time. I have plans.

Big. Easy. Plans.

Try not to be too jealous of how fancy I get when plotting out the end of their summer vacation. I’m fairly certain you, too, can arrange outings as exciting as ours will be.

    Great list, I’m also a fan of The Backyard. Easy, convenient… free.

    I was just wondering recently whether the grocery stores have begun to pay better music, or if that just means I’m getting old… I guess it’s better music.

    We’re now on our endless August loop of pool, home, yard, side yard, front yard, bike, pool. It’s good times. Good times. I’m hold out hope that a developer decides to build a Pop-Up Cheesecake Factory between now and September 6th.

    I just made a panicked list the other day realizing that the clock is ticking! Our list includes lots of hikes and s’mores!
