Summer Fun List

Lots of bloggers are doing it, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I made a list of fun activities for our little family of three (and occasionally more) to do this summer. It's not a hugely involved list because Mark and I will still both be at work full time, but we do have a short vacation or two planned, not to mention some random days off here and there.

The photo is a little out of focus (sorry, I was taking photos at about 8pm and the light was basically gone), but here's our list. Despite several years of writing on flip charts for a living, I cannot write in a straight line to save my life. Luckily I had some striped gift wrap in my stash. I just cut it to size and used it as my guide. The list got popped into a frame and we'll use a dry erase marker to check off the items (right on the glass) as we go. Here's a few detailed shots of what we plan to accomplish these next few months:

I may swap out the paper and do this every season. And if I didn't already have a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, I'd use this idea to keep track of our weekly menu and grocery list. As it stands, this summer fun list will live in the dining room once I find some adhesive hooks that will work for it. Here's the plan:

Have you made a similar list for your family? What are your to dos for this summer?

I should make a list. There's so much I want to do now that Pie is mobile!

The list looks wonderful and full of lots of fun! I like how you included little things, not just huge trips.

Our summer list doesn't consist of much of anything... We will mostly be spending a lot of time in the backyard.

What a fun list! I haven't made one but after reading yours I think that I may have to.
