We had a little dream session around the dinner table last night and came up with our annual summer list! Some of it's realistic, some of it's not but here's some of what we'd like to do in Summer 2011.
Go to the beach
Go to New York City
Rockies baseball games
Weekend road trips (Estes Park and Santa Fe were mentioned!)
Go to Arkansas to see cousins (my kids are getting a brand new cousin in July!)
Eat on the patio at Amanda's Fonda
Have dinner at The Mona Lisa in Manitou Springs
Buy a new television
Neighborhood Happy Hours!
Go out for breakfast (Adam's Mountain Cafe!)
Eat lots of Pinkberry
Make homemade ice cream and maybe gelato
See the last Harry Potter movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Visit Mount Rushmore
Vist the Sand Dunes
Participate in the library summer reading program
Have lots of sleepovers (I stifled my groaning for the sake of my kids)
Have friends over for dinner
Plan Sarah's birthday party
Have outside movie nights
Bedroom makeover (John and I need one!)
Oh my gosh...I love summer and am SO ready for it to begin. It's close. REALLY close. As of today:
Abbey has 9 more days of school (she's out today and Monday)
Will has 10 more school days
Sarah has 11 more school days (poor Sarah)
DEFINITELY seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Hip, hip HOORAY!
