So far. . .

We have completed these things on our "Summer to do list"
*Catch lightning bugs
*Go to the pool

oh yeah - and did I mention that this little gnome is going everywhere with us this summer? Part of a new photography series I'm doing. ;-)
*Go tubing on the lake

I love that this pic shows all of the gear that mommies haul to the lake for our sweeties. This pic represents to me bonding with girlfriends, chasing after kids, tubing, lots of eating, naps, dirty diapers, sun block, sun burn, LOTS of fun!
*Do crafts
*enroll in the Summer reading program at the library
*Use funky color sprays to spray our hair for "summer hair"
*had homemade pedicures (which leads me to tell you of a super fun find! I just picked this up on ebay

The Konad nail art kit! :)
I cannot wait to get it in the mail and play with my girlies! So fun. I read that a lot of the polishes like Sally Hansen and polishes at Sally's Beauty Supply will work so you don't have to spend the $ on their special polishes.
*Go to drive in movie (Toy Story 3. . .SO good!)
*Bought ginormous inflatable water slide. . .hours of fun!

*scrapping my summer in my summer journal

*Have picnic in backyard
*Go to zoo

Still have these things to do:
*Make homemade bubbles from this recipe.
*Make sidewalk "paint" from this recipe
*Camp out in backyard
*Have friends over for game night and fire up the firepit
*Paint bathroom :)
*Fairy gardens
*Whip cream fight
*Ride bikes to DQ
*Frisbee golf

So far. . .a super fun summer!

P.S. The July Crazy Daisy kit is now available. Love love the Jenni Bowlin star mini that comes in the kit!

P.P.S. I miss blogging. :(

Sounds good! We've gotten a pretty good start on ours too, we just went and saw Toy Story, so cute. Nice to get an occasional post, even if you don't have that much time to blog!

Amber Zimmerman said...

Haha! Jocelyn - it's in place of a shaving cream fight. Yummier. :) We always used to do shaving cream fights at camp - a summer tradition. :)
