I am all about making some sort of bucket list for every season (I sort of swear by lists for all aspects of life), but especially for summer. Waverly & I both love the waterpark so much that I know it would be really easy just to go there everyday, but I really do want to show her that summer life does exist past water slides & a lazy river. As amazing as they both are. 🙂
At the top of our summer bucket list was to make water balloons, Waverly is such a water lover that I knew these would be a hit & also, something that we could do right in our front yard. My mom got us this hose (similar here), so we recently pulled it out, along with the water table, & made an afternoon of it.
Waverly obviously loved it, she was in awe of the water balloons & we couldn’t make them fast enough!! I’m thinking we may add some to her birthday party next weekend, I have been trying to come up with an activity for kids of all ages & I think these would totally work. Other ideas are welcome & appreciated. 🙂
I’ve also made it my personal goal to take Waverly to the beach once a week. Truthfully, it takes some major energy for me to accomplish a beach trip on my own, even now that are past the infant stage. By the time I haul everything (& I mean everything, like our entire house), that we need down there, & of course the child, I am a little exhausted. Plus once we make it, I haven’t decided what freaks me out more. The waves she loves to dive into, the jellyfish, the amount of sand she consumes while we are there, or of course the thought of how long it will take to get the sand she covers both of us in off once our two-hour adventure ends. 😉
Yet all in all, the hard work is completely worth it, she is a total beach babe. I can’t even believe how much progress she has made in how well she can swim in the last couple of weeks alone. I’m convinced she is going to be swimming laps by the end of summer, she has already figured out how to go under! Another positive, I get the best workout while I am there (which is the only workout I am getting these days!).
