At the beginning of the summer, I was all nervous about surviving the entire summer with my 3 monsters.  They do nothing but bicker and fight all day long.  Unless they are fully entertained.  So I came up with this list of fun summer time activities to have in my back pocket in case of emergencies.

Its about 1/2 way through the summer and, as you can see, I’ve checked off several ideas so far.  I try to get us out of the house at least every other day to do some inexpensive activity.  I have the extra added bonus of our $300 Intex swimming pool in the backyard (best investment ever made), a free pond behind a nearby college, and a free beach about 5 minutes down the street.

So far this summer has been great. Surprisingly, I’ve really been enjoying playing with my kids!
