Summer is HERE!!!!

We finally are done with snow and the sun is out. Wahoooo! We have been out of school for a couple weeks and realize I need a list. A to do list. Things we can go on the spur of the moment when everyone is making the mom batty and each other. This is a list of things we are going to accomplish this summer. Check for local options in your are as well.

~Library-many local libraries do reading programs, story time and so on.
~Pool- we joined our local fitness center and for 45.00 a month we can swim as much as we want. This also has a full fitness center so for a small fee the kids can get checked in to play and mom can work out. Those in the Seattle area..I loved the Y. Best place when you have kids.
~Free movies!!! Many theaters around the country do a free movie day. Usually one day a week around mid morning. you can find the program here. There are a couple theaters that do it for little to nothing as well.

~local children's museums. I know for us it was worth it to by a pass. We pay for it after 1.5 times going.
~bus rides/trains. Locally my kids love to ride TRAX. 2 of my kids are free so its 4.00 total for us all to go for a ride.
~Micheal's and Lakeshore learning offer FREE classes or workshops. Check your local area for details.

~The good old fashion park- even if it just for an hour I forget how much kids love to play and get the energy out. My kids love to stop at random parks and even play for 30 minutes. Its something new and exciting even if it seems silly to us.
Ill be adding and updating the list whenever I come across more.
Enjoy and share your ideas as well!

  1. Thanks Allison! Never knew about the free movies. I am guessing it was b/c Logan wouldn't sit through a movie until now. I am super excited. Just wish you were closer so that we all could go together:)
