Summer Check List!

For Bob's June envelope, I made him a summer to do list. It had of course 37 things to do. It hung on our fridge all summer and we had so much fun checking them off. Well almost all of them.
ü Go on a hike.
This was hands down one of my favorite summer days. Such a fun adventure with the girls.
I bought a fake snake and lizard for the girls to throw at Bob during our hike. Of course he didn't skip a beat but the girls loved it! I love that I caught this pic of Ella throwing her snake and McKenna making her approach with the lizard hiding behind her back.
ü Treasure hunt.
To turn the hike into a treasure hunt I made the girls these boxes to carry in their backpacks. They had so much fun with it! Throughout the day they would find stuff that matched up with the description. At the end of the day, they each received a little goodie bag (aka treasure) for filling their box.

ü Breakfast for dinner.
One of our all time faves and it happened more than once. Just turns out I never got a picture of it.
ü Game night.
McKenna for the win in Princess dominos.
ü Tie Dye.
This was so fun (and messy)! We did this when Ella's friend Maggie spent the night. I bought a tie dye kit from walmart and the girls had so much fun doing it. I watched a youtube video on how to make a heart in the middle and it was actually pretty simple and turned out so cool!
The girls wanted to add BFF in their hearts.
ü Build a fort.
This happened with the best of friends in Midland.
ü Picnic.
I love picnics with my girls. This one was especially fun because I taught them how to play fortune teller and it was hilarious. I think McKenna is going to be a bus driver with a pet elephant when she grows up.
ü Fireworks.
We not only saw fireworks on the 4th but Ella even got to help Jake shoot some off.
ü Golf.
Played with the uncles and cousins.
ü Water park.
We went to the water park but never got a picture. This one will have to do. I love the action shoot of Bob at the twins party.
ü Library.
We love a good trip to the library. McKenna loves reading her books to her baby dolls.
ü Eat at food truck.
ü Thinkery.
Food truck meal and Thinkery was a double check off day. We had a blast at the Thinkery children's museum in Austin and then enjoyed some yummy food.
ü Frosti Cones.
ü Movie night.
This was one of my favorite nights. I'm pretty sure it will be one of those memories that Ella will always remember too. After Bob and I put the girls to bed one night, I snuck in after they fell asleep and got Ella up. I told her we were going to a late night movie while Dad and McKenna stayed home sleeping. That kid was in heaven. McKenna is not really a movie watcher and Maleficent would have been too intense for her. Ella and I loved it! It was such a fun and special time for us.
ü Kids plan dinner.
ü Date night with mom.
ü Farmers market.
ü Cookout.
ü Obstacle course.
We checked these two off at Dignan's birthday party. Grilled some hot dogs and set up a dog obstacle course.
ü Cookies for friends.
ü Go to mall.
ü Slip n slide.
ü Make firefly jars.
ü Play in sprinklers.
ü Feed the ducks.
ü Wash the car.
ü Go fishing.
ü Craft night.
Day or night, we are most likely crafting in this house.
ü Sleep in a tent.
ü Plant flowers.

We have a short list of the ones we never got to but will someday soon! Drive-in movie, zoo, bowling, make ice cream and water ballon fight. We will defiantly be doing this again next summer, it was so much fun. Maybe even a winter break check list...

oh! I have one for Fall & for Winter! I will send them to you! Check lists are PERFECT for seasons :) I always have random days where I know I want to take the girls to do something, but am not 100% sure just what to do and a list of ideas always saves the day :) I LOVED every single photo! SO FUN!
