Anyway, back to the topic at hand : our summer wish list!
Last weekend we had a BUNCH of fun and were able to check a lot of things off our summer wish list. In fact, we've actually checked a lot off so far this summer and I realized I hadn't officially shared yet, so I wanted to do a little update.
This past weekend we...
- had a family ice cream (sandwich) date at Stax Cookie Bar
red velvet cookie with white chocolate chips
chocolate ice cream
half chocolate chip/half chocolate chocolate with white chocolate chips
(this was taken moments before that big scoop of ice cream fell on the floor :( but sweet Mason didn't care! He moved on and started eating his cone and was as happy as can be. My little carb lover!)
- went to the OC Fair (our local county fair)...
... and had the BEST time! Believe it or not, I used to hate the fair. Like I literally told Seth to remind me that I hate it when it comes back around and tell me not to go. Then we had Mason... and I convinced him that I was wrong and we should go (this was last year) and we had the best time. I couldn't wait to take Mason again this year! Last year he fell asleep before we got to really do anything, so this year I was so excited to take him on rides and show him the fair. Well he had another idea... he was so NOT into the rides (despite my valiant efforts) and was much more interested in seeing and petting the animals, eating everything he could (turkey leg, corn on the cob, and fries dipped in ranch), and playing the games. All of these were just fine with me and we all had the best day.
I also convinced Seth that we should take a photo booth picture... but clearly someone doesn't understand the concept of the photo booth yet. Maybe next year :)
But we've also...
- celebrated Mason's 3rd birthday (here)
- gone to Disneyland (here)
- gone to an outdoor concert (July date :: here)
- done many Lowe's Build and Grows (here // here)
- gone to a movie theater (here)
- saw fireworks (sparklers) and celebrated the 4th of July (here)
- went swimming (here)
- made our own popsicles (here)
Clearly I should have checked in much sooner as we are definitely more than halfway done with our wish list (which I totally didn't even realize until I started checking things off and listing the things we've done)! While summer officially doesn't end until the end of September, I kinda of feel like summer ends when the kids go back to school, so I'm hoping we can squeeze a couple more fun activities in in the next couple weeks!
