Summer Fun

A few weeks ago, I took these munchkins of mine to Panera Bread for breakfast. 

In addition to enjoying cinnamon rolls, muffins, and oatmeal, I had an additional purpose in our trip there:

I wanted to create a list of things to do this summer...backyard activities, places to visit, cold treats to enjoy, etc.

And so we did.  45 things to do for the Summer of 2012 (and we're adding more as we think of them.)

So today, I'm working on transferring that list onto slips of paper to put in our Summer Fun Jar. (You can read about how I made the jar on this post from last summer!)

Here's our list, in case you're in need of some ideas for the coming weeks! (I'm sure you can spot Nathanael's suggestions in a heartbeat!)
