Last night we started our annual brainstorming with the kids about outings they want to take over their summer vacation. I thought I'd share part of our list with you!
Take a picnic and go swimming/wading at the river
Play laser tag
Go to the science museum
See the new exhibit at the aquarium
Family dinner out (Ed.: a rare treat for us!)
Dollar Tree picnic, breakfast picnic, barbecue picnic at the river (Ed.: Obviously we're big picnickers)
Movies (A-Team, Toy Story 3, Knight and Day, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Dinner for Schmucks) (Ed.: Remember, my kids are senior teenagers/young adults now)
Hit the gym and pool more often
Concerts in the Parks
Go see Taiko drumming (Ed.: We're lucky – there's a Taiko school in our town)
Hit up the yard sales and thrift stores
Get a new book to read aloud in the evenings (Ed.: Remember, my kids are senior teenagers/young adults now!! This one is my favorite.)
What are your plans for the summer?
