Summer Plans Link Up

Hey everyone!

Welcome to June’s Ladies Who Link where we will be talking all about our summer plans and activities.

While you are here, don’t forget to stop over to visit my co-hosts Allie, Holly, Lisa, Trina & Sara.

Our main modus operandi this summer will be…keep changing scenery.

We find that the longer the kids hang in one spot the greater the likelihood of fights over toys and general bickering. We spend as much time outdoors as we can but when the fights start, we move the party into the living room. When things start getting tense in the living room, down to the playroom basement we go.

To be perfectly honest, I don’t like staying in the house very much. As soon as I wake up my first thoughts are about where we are going to go and what we are going to do on that particular day. In our old house, I attributed it to the size of the home. The house was small and I got stir crazy. I really believed that once we got more space and I would be more of a homebody. Now, our house is larger but I am still always planning an escape.

Our summer plans are already in full swing! So far we…

Went to a Phillies Game.

Stayed at the beach (there will be many of these this summer).

Hosting a big BBQ for Memorial Day/Hank’s Birthday.

Spent time fishing and grilling at the campground.

Visited Storybook Land.

Visited the Please Touch Museum in Philly.

Went canoeing.

Celebrated Hank’s graduation.

And, as you aren’t reading this we are in…

Niagara Falls.

We are truly never sitting still.

When we are home we hop in the pool every chance we get. The weather is finally warming up around here so we are so excited to dive in as much as possible.

I need lots of ideas on fun activities at home to keep the kids entertained so I can’t wait to read all of your ideas!

    Tara!! I hope you are having an amazing time in Niagara Falls! We do the same thing all Summer- take advantage of all of the outdoor time we can because the Winter is long enough! When we are around home, I let the girls jump through the sprinkler, we grill as much as possible and have also done treasure hunts in the yard 🙂

    oh girl, I hope Niagara is treating you right!! Bet the boys love it!! You are already living summer to the fullest!!
    We loved trips to the ice cream place, adventure days of just getting in the car and going to a new place or park, splash pads, slip n slide, berry picking, dollar tree store day, sidewalk chalk, making obstacle courses, the skies the limit but we often do need ideas!! Have so much fun sweetie pie!!

    You are already having the best summer. Tara, those boys of yours are just the cutest little guys. I love the relationship I have with my son and you get that two-fold. So sweet. Enjoy Niagara Falls!!!

    So, I think you’ve done more in 2 weeks than we will do in 2 years! Hope you guys are having lots of fun at the falls! Thanks for co-hosting, even on vacay! 🙂
