As is the tradition with many families, we make ourselves a ‘summer list’. It’s sort of like a bucket list for all things fun to do during the summer. I actually do lists year round because neither of my squids are in school but I always think that the summer one is the BEST! Ottawa is blessed with so many fairs and festivals that start in late May and run all the way until October ending with an amazing string of country fairs. Every season I eagerly anticipate writing our list and this summer looks like it’s going to be AWESOME! I usually make the list on my own and then give it to Cake to decorate but this time around I made it on a Saturday morning so everyone had input, and then both Cake and Nay got a chance to pretty it all up.
In the end Cake did most of the decorating and I held back Nay so he wouldn’t peel all her Dora stickers off but it’s done and looks fab!
Here’s the finished project.
In case you can’t read it through all the Dora stickers:
Robot birthday for daddy
Montreal for a day
Shaving cream play
Canal boat tour
Perth Garlic festival
Make a fairy house
Picnic at Pinhey’s Point
Upper Canada Villiage
See a movie at the Port Elmsley Drive in
Haunted Walk of Ottawa tour
I’m hoping that we’ll get to all the things on the list but really, who knows, with S. Geek’s travelling schedule and life in general with Cake and Nay I never know what life will bring.
Happy Summer everyone! What’s on your summer bucket list?
