Summertime fun with the kids

Summer can be such a fun time to get to experience some of things we don’t have time for during the school year. If you are in need of ideas to get your wheels turning, there is no better place to turn than mommy blogs.
100summeractivitiescoverWillette has compiled a nice little list of ideas for taking pics of your kids over the summer, 100 ideas to be exact. They aren’t just ideas for taking pictures of your kids, they are great ideas that will ensure you include a little fun in your summer. Just leave her your info and she will email you a copy of the file. It is WELL worth it.  Go get it here.

ok, well this picture really has nothing to do with this blog post, except maybe that I would like to sit on that there cute cushy little polka dotted bench while I do activities with my kids. Do you think
The Nester would let me borrow it? She does have an excellent post on summerizing your home so that kinda fits this post, right?

  1. Thanks for posting my Italian Soda!!! I just loaded up on Torani syrup this weekend. It turns out that Gordman's sells a few flavors. It's a little closer than World Market :)
