First Day of Summer Vacation

School's out! Today is the first day of summer vacation. Home with four children ages 8, 6 and 2 all summer long ... yay!! The weather forecast for the week is awesome ... 80's and sunny all week!! We started our day with a much needed trip to the grocery store ... our cupboards were bare! Hungry kids are not happy kids!

Then, I took the kids to one of our local parks ... the one with the big green alligator! There was something for everyone including shade for me. They all had a great time climbing, sliding, swinging and playing in the sandbox. Thankfully, there were other moms there who were more organized than me who thought to bring sand toys! I made a mental note to pack those for next time ... actually, I should put a bin in my van complete with sand toys, blanket, balls, sunscreen ... all that good park stuff! Moms were even there with picnic stuff ... now that would've been a good idea too! Well, it's only the first day of summer vacation so we have plenty of time to get organized ... as long as I don't over-think the process!

After the park, it was home for lunch then naps for the twins while Olivia and Nicholas played with neighborhood friends while I got busy planting the flowers I purchased 2 weeks ago! I can't believe it's already the end of June! It'll be my mission this week to get all my plants in so we can enjoy them before summer is over!
