We don't leave the house every day, cause sometimes just thinking about getting in the van makes me want to curl up into a ball and hide forever. It's so hot. BUT I still do try to let my kids experience new things along with the same ol' summer stuff.
Obviously #1 summer activity is anything that involves water. Swimming, splash pads, backyard sprinkler, whatever has water we try and do.
#2 anything inside.
Like a said if we can avoid not leaving the house we don't and if we do its to a water hole or somewhere else inside.
I surprised the kids and took them to a super fun indoor play park. Slides, trampolines, rock walls, etc. I was a little worried about Leonard, only being 2 how he would do. He was freaking out when we got there and didn't want to wear the grippy socks but when our hour play time was up he was freaking out cause he didn't want to leave. Totally worth the trip and the expense!
We're planning on taking the kids again, and trying out a couple of the other indoor places we have in the valley.
#3 Everything else😉 card games, video games, Lego building, movies, sending my kids to friends houses, and having friends over.
One great thing about older kids is they have friends that invite them over, and want to come over. It doesn't happen all the time, but its a nice change for everyone.
With only a couple week left of summer break, 3 out of 4 kids are in school this year and it starts July 18th, we are making the best of spending time together.
