We are doing a lot of playing this summer. We are catching lightning bugs, going to drive in movies, playing glow in the dark football, making our own bubbles, making slushies and homemade ice cream, checking off my list of crafts from my "Crafty Goodness" Pinterest board, staying up late and sleeping in late, going to the pool, having picnics at the park with the splashpad, playing in the splashpad afterwards, going to Reds baseball games and the local Tincap games, growing our own strawberries (a bit unsuccessfully thanks to the chipmunks!), making strawberry shortcakes, going to firework displays, having a lemonade stand, making a fairy garden, making sidewalk chalk art, going to local festivals, buying ice cream from the ice cream bicycle, going to church softball games, running kids to baseball practices and games, going to the dollar theater with the family, going to the lake, making fruit smoothies and iced coffees, grilling out, going to amusement parks, going to the zoo, going to parades, trying out new summer recipes, and just soaking up the sunshine!!
Yet to do: camp out in our back yard, watch a movie in our backyard under the stars, make our own sidewalk paint, have a game night with our friends until late, make rootbeer floats, take a family bike ride to DQ, and a few projects around the home.
Completely neglecting: my laundry and my house.
So. . .that is a pretty good summary of how our summer has been! How about you? :)
