Summer Fun - June 28

Monday and Tuesday - We had planned fun because we were camping!  It's our first camping trip of the season and it was so much fun.  The weather was near perfect and the kids found lots of friends to play with too.

Wednesday - Today was a "recovery day".  After a busy weekend, I needed a day to "recover" the house and get things put away.  I also needed to do an inventory of food items for meals the rest of the week, go to the laundermat, plan the grocery list for the coming weekend and just get my normal lists made for the week. I managed to fit in something "fun" while the clothes were washing at the laundermat.  I grabbed a coffee (thanks to that wonderful gift card I've been able to use the past few weeks!) and took the kids to a little park across from the coffee shop.  They got to play for about 40 minutes and I enjoyed my coffee and book.

Thursday -So, for fun today we went . .back to the park :-)  We had to run to the store for a few things and I realized I had just enough left on my gift card to get one more coffee so, of course, it made perfect sense to get a coffee and go back to the park.  The kids had just under an hour to play which was perfect.  I also like doing park days when the weather is nice - not much warmer than about 80 degrees and no humidity.  Once the heat of the summer comes, parks are too hot!  I also printed a bunch of random 4th of July themed coloring pages which they enjoyed coloring throughout the afternoon.

Friday - Today it was just the boys and I.  The morning started with garage sale excitement as our neighbors were having a yard sale.  The boys made many trips back and forth and found many treasures.  We also picked up some fireworks to set off at home, made monkey bread to snack on and enjoyed our towns huge fireworks show from our front porch.  It was a fun day!

I think all in all, this was another great week of summer.
