am i correct that memorial day weekend is the kick-off to summer? it is in my brainz. since we spent today at the pool i’m going to go with yes.
warm weather means a lot of activity, right? i’ve made it a habit in the summers to make a list of adventure destinations for darla and i for the mornings when i know we need to get out and about but i’m drawing a blank. i’m planning lots and lots of outdoor exploration.
i’m a big believer in filling my child’s life with experiences. i just want the summer time to be about adventure and exploration, loose bedtimes, walking barefoot and watching out for bumblebees. i want firefly catching and wading in the creek up to our knees. i want pies and watermelon smiles. and i want music and dancing and sleeping outside to watch the meteor showers. i want trips and camping and staying up late to tell spooky stories which darla will insist upon.
does that sound good?
well, this is the beginning of my list. i hope to add some new destinations because i know novelty was always a big learning opportunity for me. i feel like there’s a lot of this big state we haven’t discovered yet.
any fun suggestions for outdoor stuff out there???

I was disappointed that going to grandma’s not on that list. But since you asked for suggestions I will recommend that some time is spent with Grandma and Grandpa!
it’s on the list mom! and lots of walks over to the creek and outdoors in your wonderful backyard as well.
let me know when you find the extra 365 days to cram all that in! geesh! I don’t think I’ve done all that in a year!
