Confession: I have an obsession with making lists. I am one of those typical Type-A, OCD people who have about ten of them going at one time. And I really get pleasure from checking off items I have completed.
That is typical, right?
Now that my summer season has started, it's time to make it official with a list of the festive fun to be had. Yea, I'm also one of "those people" who have to
over plan lots of themed-out, family activities. I just can't get enough. Since we live at the beach, it's a given that we will be spending some major time in the surf & sand. It's safe to say that we have already been a time or two, and that we have one little beach babe on our hands.
Side Note: The need for this redhead to be covered in sunscreen is at the top of one of my to-do lists. She gets it from her mama. :)
On to the list of all the rest of the excitement to come. Half of our last summer was spent overly pregnant & the other half was spent inside with a newborn, so we are ready to take in the moments of this one with our growing girl. Sweet summertime, gotta love it.
1 - Attend a baseball game.
2 - Make smores.
3 - Go on a family picnic.
4 - Indulge in homemade popsicles.
5 - Attend a farmer's market.
6 - Go to the zoo.
7 - Go to the aquarium.
8 - Make homemade pizza.
Others not included were givens (not doing them would be like not having a Christmas tree) ... fireworks on the fourth, lots of water time, sipping some festive adult beverages & celebrating all three of our birthdays this July & August. Seriously, just writing this post is making me feel all summery inside. That & (one more) sight of our beach baby.
Happy summer, friends! Enjoy & take advantage of these special moments.
