Summer Fun List

Blogging from Nate's iPad on this breezy May day...kinda weird. I don't play on this toy much! Anyway, June is just around the corner, and I have been seeing lots of people starting their Summer to-do lists. I LOVE lists, so this is right up my alley. So, what to add to the list, that meets my criteria of being cheap, fun, and somewhat pregnancy-friendly? Let's see.

Cheap Summer kid movies at the Spanish 8 Theater
Do All the fun stuff for kids during Springville's Art City Days (parade, carnival, etc.)
Buy a Slip 'n Slide. Use said Slip 'n Slide
Ride bikes. (maybe not me, though. I tend to fall off bikes)
Take a ride over the Alpine Loop
Visit the Aquarium and the Dinosaur Museum
Picnics in the backyard
Family participation in the garden
Visit every park in a 10 mile radius this Summer (one has a splash pad!)
Take the kids fishing
Do all the fun stuff for kids during Provo's Freedom Festival (yay July 4th!)
Go to the Stadium of Fire (tickets already purchased)
Hang out at the library
Eat our body weight in Popsicles, and various assorted frozen treats

There has to be some fun things others have planned for Summer vacation this year. If you have any suggestions, let me know. I like being the fun mom.

all this sounds great- as Memorial Day is Monday you could decorate graves (unless you already have planned)

We are definitely visiting Grandma Carolyn's grave this year, and Nate's sister Emilee's grave as well.

you need to save a space on that list to play with the Rock's. We will be out in Utah around July 20th - for about a week. Melanie's birthday is Pioneer day, so we have to have a party of some sort.

There's always the zoo and 7 peaks. :)

I love your list. It makes me want to make one of my own. I'm sure you'll have a blast this summer!
