A few weeks ago the kids and I sat down to create our summer bucket list. It's something we do each year, and while we know that we may not cross everything off our list, it just gives us some ideas of what we want to do with their time off school.
The third week of summer has come and gone, and we had a pretty great week. We only crossed one item off of our list this week, but we still had a lot of fun! Our bucket list item this week was a picnic at the park with friends. Not only did we see the friends we were meeting there, but 3 other kids from Mr. J's class happened to be at the park at the same time. Our pool membership has come in very handy and we have been spending a few afternoons a week swimming. The kids have improved SO much.

Picnic in the park
Something not on our bucket list was our veggie garden. I planted it in May and we have been anxiously awaiting their growth. This week we were able to harvest 2 cucumbers, a green pepper, a tomato and 3 cherry tomatoes! Nothing better than veggies straight from your backyard!
Last week also marked the 21st anniversary of my fathers death. My mom and I took the boys out to the graveyard for a visit, and as is tradition, an ice cream from the store next to the cemetary.
