Summer Bucketlist: Swimming Lessons and Baseball Game

Jack the fish finished swimming lessons this week.  He LOVED them and is getting so comfortable and brave in the water.  I really want him to do another session in the next level up, but I don't know how we can fit it into our busy schedule.  

"Mom, take a picture of me UNDER water!"

Certificate of Completion

 We also went to a BEES game this week using our Pass Of All Passes.  
It was a lot of fun.....that is....if you like paying $6 for a snowcone, yelling at your 4-year old to behave the entire time, and coincidentally sitting by a myriad of people that your date has previously been on a date with;)

Actually, it was really fun.  Such a fun atmosphere and perfect summer adventure!
Jack is so in the phase of pulling a face for EVERY picture....ugh...

Wanna know what's NOT on our summer bucketlist?
Doing our hair or looking decent in public.
Check. Check.

Summer Bucketlist: Plant a Garden

I LOVE summer!  We always have such big plans of wonderful adventures we want to fulfill, yet somehow summer slips by and we hardly ever left our backyard.(Not that that's a bad thing!)
So when I saw this cute Summer Bingo Bucketlist idea, I quickly printed it out and we filled up our circles with fun and exciting ideas.

 We got to work immediately with one of our ideas: Plant a Garden.
I've never planted a garden before, so I had to enlist some help.  My neighbor/bishop showed me how to use the tiller and Giselle gave me ideas of how to plant what I wanted.  Olivia gave me some strawberry starts, and I chose to plant lettuce, spinach, peas, carrots, squash, zucchini and pumpkins.
Jack chose to plant apple seeds.  He eats apples everyday and has been saving the seeds so he can grow an "apple bush."  Let's just hope he forgets about that one!

With any luck, we will be munching on yummy fresh veggies (and APPLES) soon!

aMAYzing adventures

I can't believe how quickly May flew by! We had such a fun and busy month, and we are already in full-swing with our summer activities.  Jack had his preschool graduation and dance concert.  I made cookies and chopped my hair.  See, I told you we were busy!
