With that being said, we have done a lot of things that are on our summer bucket list, so I thought I would share.
First, we took a boat ride. During our family vacay we actually took many boat rides. The girls are still talking about going to the "middle of the lake" and the boat stopping.

We have also been swimming at grandma's house. We took the girls to swim last Friday night and they had a blast. Molly was fearless as expected and Isabelle was swimming like a pro! Both girls spent most of their time jumping in over and over again. Because I am super afraid of doing anything to my new phone, I do not have pics. We are planning on more swimming trips so I will take a real camera (you know, because who cares if I break my camera, but not my PHONE!) and try to document the fun.
Two things that we have done many times are going to the zoo and berry picking. We are actually going to the zoo again tomorrow and berry picking on Thursday. The girls have a great time and it is nice to get outside in the mornings before it gets too hot.
Also on the list was to set up the pool in the backyard and go buy a new toy.....done and done.
I don't know how good of an idea the toy thing was. They were pretty overwhelmed with the number of choices and didn't seem to want my input. The doll I basically forced Molly to get was not what she wanted and Belle picked a doll also. Funny thing is, the doll that no one wanted gets fought over every day! Should have just bought two of the same! When will I ever learn? I don't know if we are mean parents in that we have never just gone and let our kids buy a toy for no reason or if that is normal. Either way, we won't be doing it again anytime soon. Especially since we spent $15 on a doll that no one plays with and $15 on a doll that is a source of arguments everyday!
What have you been up to? Done anything on your summer bucket list?
