My son has officially been out of school for a week.
And we haven’t done ANYTHING!
No really, you think I’m kidding but I’m not. With the funky non summer weather we have been having it’s been really hard to get in the jive of things. But I’m ready to get our summer in gear. My plan is to sit down and create a calendar of things to do. Ideally I will have each day planned but I know that’s not a reality. With 2 kids things have to be able change so I am just going to plan a couple outings each week and then the rest of the week can be filled with visiting the local park or perhaps having play dates with friends.
There are several special things that are a MUST for this summer. Mainly because I want to do things that I enjoy as well.
- Enchanted Forest
- Watch Toy Story 3
- Portland Children’s Museum
- Turkey Rama
- Overnight beach trip
- Oregon Coast Aquarium
And of course the majority of these are going to cost some money but my kids are of the age now where I really want them to experience new things and 3 of the places they have never been to before. I grew up near the Oregon Coast so heading back there with my kids in tow is really exciting to me. In addition to the aquarium I hope to hit the bayfront and visit the shops and stop and eat lunch at Moe’s. I haven’t been back to Newport in several years so this is really something I’m looking forward to.
Our first outing will be the Enchanted Forest in July and I hope to be going with some bloggy friends. So check back in for our Summer adventures and I’d love to hear about what you have planned to combat the Summer time blues!
