Can I just tell you that Shelly and I were GIDDY last month when y'all linked up! I mean, we didn't break any blog records, but we weren't the only two people that linked. HA! Hoping we can continue to create a space for you all to gather and share whatever is on your mind, starting today.
So let's get this party started... it's time to...
I am so excited to read all of your amazing ideas for summer fun... I'm already counting on adding a few ideas to our list after reading yours! Flying kites, catching fireflies, dancing in the rain... so many things to look forward to doing! Last year we didn't make our own list since Emersyn's Pre-K class sent one home but crossing items off these lists have been a favorite summer activity for the past couple of years. Admittedly, I took a few of our old lists and then we changed them up a bit and the kids had final approval on each of the items.
A few things we are most excited about...
Visit Another State: This will be number 13 on the list - we are thinking a weekend trip to OKC
Making homemade ice-cream: We have Ryan's ice-cream maker from when he was a kid and it's awesome. I may need them to make me a homemade Wendy Frosty instead.
Volunteer together: Whether it's teaming up with Holly and her crew at the Food Bank or surprising the local firehouse with cookies, I love serving with my kiddos.
Skip Day/PJ Day: Any excuse to sit and do nothing all day - I'll take it!
Watch a movie outside: We did this for Radley's birthday party and it was so much fun. I may even be able to talk the kids into sleeping on the trampoline.
Yes Day: A day when I just say "yes" and allow the fun to happen for no rhyme or reason. Let the chaos begin.
Go on a treasure hunt: We had fun geocaching on Mother's Day - the kids keep asking for more.
Bury a time capsule: Who knows what will go inside and who knows if we will ever dig it up!
Can't wait to see what you want to check off!
Here's the complete list of link dates and topics...
A little linkup etiquette:
We want this link-up to be FUN but we get it... sometimes it's hard to keep track of it all! So feel free to post old posts - new posts... it's up to you! Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
Please place a link back to both hosts in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
Use the hashtag #spielthebeans on other social media
It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love! This is the fun part! Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!
We would love, love, love for you to follow us on some form of social media but it is not required.
Remember, this is a place to come to share your stories with others! Stop by other posts and say hello - we are all in this crazy inter web together... so grab a drink, your coziest blanket and put your favorite Netflix show on in the background. Make some friends, share some laughs and maybe even shed some tears... we are so glad you here! Here are the prompts and dates for the year, we hope you'll join us for each and every one!
