My Good Way to Spend Summer List

There's 104 days of summer vacation then school comes along just to end it....

Oh yeah, that catchy little tune has recently been engraved into my brain thanks to a certain little someone.   And although we won't be giving any monkeys a hot shower..

or climbing up the Eiffel Tower (bummer), I'm pretty sure that our summer won't be wasted away (unless...someone wants to take me to Margaritaville and help me search for a lost shaker of salt, but that wouldn't be a waste, would it???).  Sounds like I DO have summer on the brain.  So what's a girl (and a boy) to do all summer long????

1.   Wonder how can I make the MOST of it (in true Phineas and Ferb spirit)

2.    I could unplug the TV during the day and enjoy the sunshine with Mason.

3.    Drive myself CRAZY and take him to Cheeky Judges (aka Chuck E. Cheeses).

4.    Wonder WHY did I follow through with #3...

5.    Rest after winning (just barely) the excruciating Battle at Chuck's.

6.    Take a deep breath and continue on with our little summer vacation staycation.

7.    Make the world go round by taking my BIG BOTTOM self to the gym.  (Alright what's up with all song references???)

8.    Think like The Little Engine That Could and say, "I think I can!  I think I can!"

9.    Dream about the buns of steel that will never be.

10.  Continue with Zumba just because I LOVE IT!

11.  Take Mason for some swimming lessons.

12.   Figure out how I'm gonna be "right there" for Mason and not drown myself.

13.   Survive Mason's swimming lessons (I hope).

14.   Enjoy time with my family from Costa Rica.  (Note to self:  they are coming to you, not vise versa :o(

15.   Watch lots and lots of Phineas and Ferb (on a rainy day of course).

16.    Wonder how Phineas and Ferb give a real life monkey a hot shower with such ease while I struggle with a so-called monkey of my own.

17.   Try to remember how to blog.

18.    Become an American Costa Rican Picker by picking someone else's trash for some treasures, followed by picking strawberries.  We'll just make a day of it.  Why not????

19.    Get robbed by someone named Carmike and take Mason to see Toy Story III and be glad I did.

20.   Wonder where the time goes.  Summer's going by so fast!

21.   Be happy that the end of summer is drawing near.  After all, the end of summer brings the beginning of a brand spankin' new home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

22.   Score on more awesome deals at my favorite home improvement store, LOWES.
        Current savings so far.... $436 on 5 light fixtures  CHA CHING!!!!

23.   Wait anxiously for MOVING DAY!!!!

24.    Jump for JOY cause it's MOVING Day!!!!!

25.    Fall in love with our new playroom!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

26.    Give thanks to God for all He has given me and my family ♥.

  3. I don't have an actual list, we love just spur of the moment, last minute fun ideas. We did talk a lot last night doing things from our childhood and sharing it with our kids like we did.
