Summer Fun List Update

Well, the summer isn't over yet, but I just thought I would give you a quick update on what we have accomplished from our "Summer Fun" List. 

Here is our original list:
  • Pick Berries at Gnismer Farms
  • Go to Hawaiian Falls
  • Spend a day on the lake 
  • Wagon ride through Rose Memorial Park
  • Go to a petting zoo
  • Blow bubbles 
  • Take Dax to the park
  • Fly a kite
  • Have a picnic
  • Plant an herb garden
  • Read books
  • Feed ducks at the park
  • Go see 4th of July fireworks
  • Fingerpaint
  • Plant a flower
  • Dallas World Aquarium
  • Make cookies
  • Play in the rain
Although we haven't done a lot, we have done a few things and certainly had a ton of fun!

We have definitely spent our fair share of time at Hawaiian Fall.  Emmalee LOVES the water and loves to be outside, so Hawaiian Falls is a great place for us.  

We've also spent some time at the lake, and will spend quite a more this weekend.  With Granda and Grandad living on the lake and having a boat, we always have the chance to go to the lake.  This weekend we'll be spending some relaxing days on Lake Whitney at the White Bluff Resort.  I can't wait to leave. 

Sometimes I look back at this list and laugh because it seems like we read books on a nightly basis.  Emmalee LOVES her books, whether she is sitting in your lap, or reading herself.  She definitely gets this from her momma! 

On the 3rd of July we went and saw the fireworks in our little town of Mansfield.  It was great.  Brant's family came, and my sister met us out there with a few of her kiddos.  With colors filling the skies, a slight breeze and lots of friends and family, its was a GREAT evening.

And of course, I was the mom that let her child play in the rain.  You can see my post about it here.

What have you crossed off your "Summer Fun" List?
