I feel like I've been slacking in the blogging department lately, but to be honest it almost feels "wrong" to blog when the weather is so gorgeous out! I usually blog during naptime, and in the winter when it's cold and dreary I sit on my couch (watching some court TV) and blog while the girls nap. But as summer approaches I will just warn ya'll that if I miss a day here and there I am still alive, don't worry! It's probably because we skipped naptime to frolic around outside somewhere :-) Or like today, the girls are both napping, but weather in the 70s (I'm wearing a tank top!) and a bright shining sun have me so happy and energized that I've been cleaning while the girls sleep. Yes, cleaning!
So far today we've gone to the park, worn sunscreen for the first time this year!, had a picnic lunch on the deck, played in the sandbox, and gone for a walk. 'Tis the life!
And today I was looking at my calendar (because I had to call and set up Raya's 4 year well-child check---4 years!) and I realized that we have a TON of fun things to look forward to this summer. It might go down in history as being our most fun summer to date :-P
Here's what we have planned already:
*Raya's birthday trip to Omaha Zoo later this week!
* Raya's birthday weekend the following week
*Weekend trip with my brother and his family to an indoor waterpark the following week
*5 day trip to Ohio to visit Lee's brother's family
* Weekend trip with Mrs. Mommy and her family to another indoor waterpark, museum, and jumpy play place
*Adventureland amusement park with my mom and all the grandkids
*Out of state friends visit us for a long weekend over the 4th of July
*Our town festival/carnival/parade
*Long weekend in St. Louis with the girls
*Lee's big family reunion in IL
*Family friend wedding
*Kid-free vacation to see St. Louis play at the Brewers' stadium
That takes us through September! Whew, lots of fun stuff!! And that isn't even counting all the spur of the moment boating, etc. we can do on Lee's boat.
So what are YOU looking forward too the most this summer....anything fun planned so far?
