Summer of Fun

As I've mentioned, I'm determined to maximize our family fun this summer.  Unfortunately, I still have to work, so we'll be having this fun primarily on the weekends.  We have a vacation week in July and a couple Fridays off as well.  Here's a little glimpse at the types of things I'm planning to make sure we all enjoy ourselves while the weather is warm.  Mostly small things that are super easy to do, and we've done quite a few already!
  • Go strawberry-picking
  • Make homemade ice pops
  • Ride bikes
  • Visit the local Farmer's Market
  • Blow bubbles
  • Go to the Public Garden and ride the swan boats and the carousel
  • Go puddle-stomping
  • Go to the beach
  • Make sangria
  • Celebrate the little boy's 1st birthday
