Now we're in between crazy. We have a plan of action with Audrey. The house is cleaned up and on the market, but not yet sold. We can kind of think and plan ahead and we're thinking summer! Here's our complete list of 103 Super Fun Things to do this Summer from last year. And here are some pictures of our ridiculously fantastic fun!

This summer is definitely different. We have a crawling baby and a house on the market and a summer that may include an across the country move and two boys in baseball and one girl in softball. For logistical and financial and lazy summer, minimal scheduling reasons, we're cutting back on our summer adventures. We'll stick closer to home, but I'm certain we'll have big fun and make lots of memories, made all the more special by the fact that we'll get to share our adventures with our Asher boy.
I'd say the key to success is knowing your crowd and their tolerance for running around and being off of their schedules. It's no fun to go to a waterskiing show that starts at 7 pm if you have a toddler who NEEDS to go to bed at 7:30. Then she's screaming and you're mad that you spent all this time trying to have fun and make memories and no one, repeat, NO ONE is having any fun. On the other hand, let's say your toddler recently dropped his morning nap. You're now free to hit up a new kid friendly bookstore for that really cool 10 am story hour you've been hearing about. You might even visit a new park for a picnic and some swinging before heading home for a much-needed afternoon nap.
We've started our list and I'm glad to report that so far three of them involve ice cream. Clearly we have our priorities in check. Have a looksie. . .
We're looking forward to a summer of fun!
