Super Summer Checklist

We had our first sunny day yesterday, and it got me thinking (and excited) about summer.  I LOVE summer!  So.... I made a "to do" list today... and it doesn't involve cleaning the dust bunnies out from under my couch.  :-)  Here is a list of:

50 fun things the boys (including my handsome husband whenever possible) and I are going to do this summer.

1) Celebrate Canada Day
4)  Go to a splash pad
5)  Swim in our blow up pool
6)   Go to a farmer's market
7)   Go to the library
8)   Make homemade bubbles
9)   Play pirates
11) Collect shells at the beach
12) Build a sandcastle
13) Swim in the ocean
14) Visit a wildlife park
16) Run through the sprinkler
17) Play baseball
18) Play soccer
19) Ride our bikes
20) Take a ferry boat ride
21) Spend time at a cottage

48) Take a bubble bath
49) Have pancakes for supper
50) Have a PJ day

The boys decorated our lists, and we bought some cheap frames at the dollar store.  Every time we do something on the list, they "check" it off by putting a sticker over the number.  This is already so much fun!

You can download a pdf version of our list here.

What is your favorite summer activity?  Did it make my list?
