I love your list and how you divided it up into categories. I like the idea of going to a waterfall. My kids would love that. It looks like a very fun summer ahead. Thank you for linking up to the party.

Bethany said...

Great list! I just added a few to our list! Looks like an awesome plan for this summer!

Bethany said...

I always get so excited to start! I can hardly wait!

Kirby said...

Great list. I have a bunch on our summer list, I need to break ours up into categories like yours, so I can keep track what we can do each day!

We cut the rainy day ideas and what to do days into strips and put them into jars. Then we pull one out every day that we don't already have something else from the list planned. It is a great system for us.
