Summer Fun

This summer is moving way too fast for me....Seems like we just got out of school and before to long we will be going back.  We have been trying to make the most of our summer since Daddy is home.  I have really had to get creative with cheap and free things to do around the house to keep the kids entertained so that I do not hear the dreaded "I'm bored" ha! 

Here is a sneak peek in pictures of a few of things we have been up to this summer:


I started off with a dance camp for my danceline girls.  It was a fun, but intense week.  They learned a lot and improved a ton on their technique.  Even though we worked hard, we shared a few laughs too.



After dance camp finished up, my in laws gave us their old pool, yay!  So J set it up in our backyard.  We have been able to use it some, but with all the rain in our area there has not been much time for swimming.

Here is a picture of the kids getting in the pool before it was full....they just could not wait!



We also had some very sweet friends give us each a ticket to Six Flags along with a parking pass and voucher for food.  We are so thankful for their generosity!  We did not tell the kids we were going, instead we woke them up early one morning to surprise them with the trip.  They were so excited and had a BLAST!

Here are a few pictures from Six Flags:
 




 


And of course we have done some fun things around the house:

fun things like dress up daddy:

have buddies over to spend the night:

Go on a hike to the waterfall:

build a fort in the basement:

and play restaurant with daddy:


It may not seem like much, but we are having fun and making memories...and, well, that is really all that matters.

What sort of fun stuff do you do in the summer to keep your children entertained?
