Summer Recap {2012}

It's official. Summer is over. womp.womp. On a happy note though, pumpkin spice lattes are back at Starbucks today. (yay!!)

I created a little to-do list for our family to work on when summer first started. I thought it would be fun to look back and see what we were actually able to accomplish from the list. I was surprised. We did more than I thought we did. However, not everything got crossed off the list but who is able to accomplish everything on their to-do list? Certainly not this girl. Although, I secretly wish I could.

Here is a reminder of our list:

  1. Go to the Farmer's Market in Madison
  2. Brewers Games
  3. Camping with Aidan (even if it's only in our backyard)
  4. Fishing
  5. Trips to the zoo
  6. Bike Rides
  7. Travel Up North
  8. Boat Rides
  9. Fireworks
  10. Enroll Aidan in t-ball and soccer
  11. Watch Tommy's baseball games
  12. Go to the beach...build a sandcastle
  13. Take family pictures
  14. Host a book drive
  15. Go on a picnic
  16. See a parade
  17. Go to a fair
  18. Attend Jazz in the park
  19. Participate in a 5K
  20. Catch a sunrise
  21. Run through the sprinkler
  22. Learn to golf 
The things in bold, we didn't get to. Kind of a bummer BUT there is always next summer. We could still do a few of  these things too as long as the weather stays nice (like camp, see a sunrise and golf). We missed our chance to see a parade and go to Jazz in the Park. Even though we didn't get to everything on the list, we did a few things that weren't on the list. We grilled pizza for the first time, I planted flowers in my garden for the first time, we had lots of smores and celebrated veterans. We managed to do all of this with record setting temperatures here in Milwaukee.

We went to several Brewers games. Uncle Danny took Aidan fishing while we were on vacation. We went to the zoo a few times. Road bikes almost daily. Went Up North for a week in July and went on plenty of boat rides. Saw fireworks on the 4th of July. Aidan played both t-ball and soccer. Auntie Lindsay took Aidan to the beach on his birthday. We took family pictures in June. We collected books to be donated on Grayson's behalf for his first birthday. We went on a picnic while on vacation. We went to state fair and had a blast! I did my first 5K a couple of weeks ago and Aidan loved running through the sprinkler. We also celebrated all of the boys birthdays. I'd say it was a good summer! 

How did you spend your summer?!
