A friend was just telling me about a great new park that was put in recently in our area. We haven't had a chance to go yet, so when I saw "Discover a new park" on our Summer Fun List this morning, I decided to load the kids up and head to the new park before the day got too hot. I love to see great new playgrounds go in that actually look like traditional playgrounds. For some odd reason, so many of the parks around here look more like art installations than playgrounds, and kids have no idea how to play on the weird equipment. We all had a great time, and we get to check another fun thing off our list!
We haven't been suffering the brutal heat lately that some of the country is feeling, but it is summer, and the temps have been climbing into the 90's around here - which is hot for us, especially for June. In an attempt to stay cool, we chose some things off the Summer Fun List to help with that. A few weeks ago we made popsicles, and also had a Sponge Bomb Water Fight. Two more things to check off the list - only 24 more to go :)
