Summer is my FAVORITE!! And in Southern California, Memorial Weekend is sort of like the unofficial start of summer. We have been at the river for Memorial Weekend the last 5-6 years, but this year we stayed home and I’m having withdrawals!! Oh, well…there’s always next year!
The girls are usually still in school after Memorial Day but they got out last Thursday – WOO HOO!!! I love having them home, being lazy in the morning, and just hanging out with them!
Every summer they put together a list of things they would like to do, and I try to do as much as possible – I still have a house and business to run! But they choose really easy things (because they’re AWESOME!!!) and we get to do most of them! Here’s a peek at what they have so far:
- Movie day at home
- Spa day (painting our nails at home)
- Disney on Ice
- Spontaneous adventure
- Fro Yo
- Playdates with some friends
- Dessert/baking day
- Sleepovers at grandmas
Pretty simple! I told them our goal is to do something fun everyday, even if it’s just playing outside! So far so good!
We’ve played outside, hung out at grandma’s house, had a pizza party, got ice-cream wasted at Farrell’s, and have watched movies together! Just the beginning!
Summer makes me smile!! I love the sunshine, family time, the smell & taste of barbecue, smores and bonfires, and just an overall feeling of happiness!
So I want to kick off our unofficial summer party with you! Share with me your favorite part of summer? What fun things do you do with your family? How do you enjoy this time of year?
