Summer Bucket List

I feel like I've been neglecting this blog a little bit over the last few weeks!  We've been so busy around our house & with work (Eli's been gone coaching basketball camps since Grady's birthday).  I feel like I haven't had time to breathe!

What we have done is chip away at our summer bucket list!

In April, we went to a Twins game for my dad's birthday...

Grady took swimming lessons in May to get ready for a summer on the lake...

In June & July, Grady's playing tball at the Y.  He loves it.

Then, last weekend we went to the Shrine Circus in town.  We rode a cute elephant & almost saw a performer plunge to his death.  Grady covered my eyes for me so I wouldn't see...he's sweet like that!

A few weeks ago, we went up north to the cabin & Grady & Eli got some fishing in even though the weather was cold, rainy, & super windy...

If the weather cooperates, we're hoping to take Grady to Valleyfair for the first time next week!  I know he'll love it since he's such an adventurous kid.  :)

Some other things we've checked off the list, but don't have photographic proof of:
Feed the Ducks
Sidewalk Chalk
Water Fight
Ice Cream Cones
Ride Bikes
Kayak Ride

And the adventures we have yet to go on:
Zoo (Henry Doorley Zoo in Omaha in August?)
Valleyfair (Next week?)
Michigan (Last week in July)
Play in the Rain
Fireworks (4th)
Camping (August?)
Sparklers (4th)
Drive in Movie
Bible School (First week in August)
Waterpark (Valleyfair/Michigan?)
Boat Ride
Mini Golf
County Fair (August)
Obstacle Course
S'mores (Camping/Bonfire?)
Forest Hike (Camping?)

Happy Summer to All!  Hope all of you MN people are enjoying the weather this week.  'Bout time, right?!  :)
