Things to Do Before The End of Summer

As I was saying the other day, summer is coming to a close.  Some of that makes me happy, and some, not so happy.

So I have begun to think about all the stuff I want to do before it's gone.

Here's My list:

-Spend a few more long days at the pool, (we haven't done that nearly enough this year!)
-Get to Boomerang Bay Waterpark (we haven't done that at all!)
-Go to a drive-in movie with our girls.
-Take some evening walks in the neighborhood.
-Get Addy a new bike and teach her to ride without training wheels
-Visit a farmers market and get fresh corn and fruit
-Use our grill more!
-Do a Friday night at The Greene and let the kids enjoy the spray ground while we listen to music
-Let the girls catch lightning bugs
-Go camping, (those who know me are SHOCKED by this!)
-Do a surprise PJ ice cream run
-Spend one more late night at Kings Island and let the girls see the fireworks.
-Go to The Cincinnati Zoo
-Go to Caesars Creek or Cowan Lake (two near-by beaches).
-Have a water fight in our backyard
-Go to Cosi
-Catch a Dayton Dragons Game
-Have one last summer picnic in the park

I know.  My list is ambitious.  Especially since my summer sort-of ends this Sunday. 

But I'm motivated to do at least *most* of these things before school starts!

So tell me, what's on your to-do list before summer is up?  Everyone has one...share yours! (PLEEEEASE!)

As always, linking up with We are THAT Family for Works for Me Wednesday!  Check out all the other great posts!


  1. As a mom who has spent a lot of time in the kitchen this summer preserving food, thanks for the timely reminder that there are still 5 weeks left in summer. I also got my dh to finally agree to take a week off so I better get planning!

  2. You can camp with us if you want :)
