Doing summer right

We are going to laugh.
We are going clean.

We are going to savor.
We are going to church.
We are going to play.
We are going to snuggle.
We are going to watch sunsets, and probably sunrises.
We are going to race.
We are going to paint.
We are going to baseball games. Dodger baseball games.
We are going to swim.
We are going to visit with our grandparents and the lil lads great-grandparents.
We are going to play in the sprinklers.

We are going to build.

We are going to be a family who leaves a legacy of doing summer right.

WOW. You have the makings of a children's book right there...and I am not even kidding! The illustrations could be of a family getting older with each page and each activity until the last page where the illustration has grandparents, children and GRANDchildren...the (now) parents continuing the legacy of doing summers right that the grandparents started at the beginning of the book!

I love it, I love all your plans! I love the "snuggle" one! Hey do you want to do something else too? Have you heard of Stroller Strides? Thought you and boys might like it? Let me know if you want more info, I just started this week and Sammy LOVES it and I'm getting my butt kicked with a good workout!
