Summer bucket list: complete

With a few days to spare, we checked the last two items off of our summer bucket list.

1. Ice skating. We had so much fun the last time we went that the kids wanted to go again this summer. I thought it would be an awesome reprieve from the summer heat and humidity.  But it hasn't been hot here.  It's kind of weird.  Not that I'm complaining. Anyway...we went skating.

We brought our neighbor/friend/4th-child-during-the-summer along.

We checked out a trainer for Caroline.
But after a couple of times around the rink,
she decided she wanted to try it on her own.

And she did it!
She made sure to stay close to the edge, 
but didn't have to hold on all the time.
And she got some help from her super-nice big bro.

Whit did great this time around, too.
She made it one lap without touching the 
wall or falling the whole way. Nice!

Fun, fun, fun.

2. Grasshoppers Game

The last item on our list was to go to another baseball game. It has been SO rainy that I was afraid we wouldn't find a game that fit our schedule and didn't get rained out. But the weather cooperated and we had a great night at the ballpark.

Love the laid-back atmosphere at baseball games. It's the perfect summer pastime.

And now...time to get ready for waking up early, packing lunches, and homework.


  1. Man. Caroline is just killing it this summer! Is there anything she can't do?

  2. Ice skating on a summer bucket list? That's "cool".

  3. WOO WHOO!! I am so impressed with their ice skating skills. Can't wait to hear about the autumn bucket list. I might make one myself.
